I purchased this tuner just when it came out about four years ago. At first I was intrigued by the design and size. The concept seemed to be pretty simple - yet noone has managed to put something similar out in the market that really worked.
The tuner can receive its pitch from either a built in microphone or via the piezo element built into the clip. I have never used the microphone up to this date - but it probably is quite good to have when you play a stringed instrument. The display is quite big but doesn't light up. At first I found this to be a disadvantage but then I saw the other models that did have a background light. They were a lot bigger and the batteries didn't nearly last as long.
What is really cool about this device is its weight - you simply won't feel it once it is attached to your headstock (as opposed to those with a backlit display). The display can be read quite easily and tuning is very exact and quick. I have used this tuner with bass, acoustic guitar, electric guitar - even banjo and ukulele. It really works great! At first I was a bit skeptical about the construction as it feels a bit fragile when you initially put it together. But I have been using it for over four years now and it still has not become loose anywhere - despite it being made of plastic.
I have sold this tuner at my guitar store many of times because I really think it is the best out there. It is the only one I use anymore and if I lost it I would buy it again immediatly.

Kalamo's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Comes with 2 clamps to fit all the instruments, it is easy to use.
Personally I use it on a guitar type Godin (nylon) plugs directly into a table because I have no tuner Intgr guitar.
The piezo sensor is trs prcis, possibility to go through the micro Intgr.
Super lightweight, it comes in tui rigid protection.
Only default: t it would be good for the notch rtro light and it goes to sleep after a given time.
Pay 49 Thomann (90 in France ...), worth it and saves lives! Especially the brass!!
