General Your general opinion of this product. I like the product. My problem is with AMS's shipping department. There were 3 pieces in my order. The other 2 were Primacoustic Recoil Stabilizers which weigh roughly 7 lbs each. The 3 items were thrown into a large box that could have held 5 times the volume of the order. There were 2 small strips of packaging material which provided no protection whatsoever. Imagine 2 bricks and a small tin container in a 2'x2'x2' box with essentially no packaging material for isolation being shipped across the country. By the time I received the package, the tin container was badly damaged. The lid was knocked off and lying separate. Luckily, the tuner was not damaged due to a pre-cut foam insert inside the tin which protected it, but the storage tin was so badly smashed that the snap-on lid could not be re-installed. I tried bending back into shape, but to no avail. I am considering returning the tuner so I have a safe place to store it between uses as the manufacturer intended. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Yes, it seems durable with careful use. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? n/a Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? n/a Action How was the action out of the box? n/a Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Looks as it should. No flaws in paint or finish. Reliability How has it stood up over time? it's only a few days old. So far ,So good!
Excellent Choice

General Your general opinion of this product. An excellent tuner with lots of selections and capabilities. Seems more precise than other digital tuners. Our Lead Player swears by his! Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Seems very well made and comes with a protected tin box with padding. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Fits easily to the guitar neck. ON-OFF is positioned away from the menu buttons. The instructions are fairly easy to read being that other languages clutter the page. Great diplay with rotating movement to indicate sharp/flat. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? N/A Action How was the action out of the box? Slip in the CR2032 battery that's included in the tin and you're off. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Nice chrome finish. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Only had it a short spell but our lead player swears by his.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Fantastic build quality. The clip is plastic so I question its durability but it seems strong. The tuner itself is a really nice brushed aluminum. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Just got it a few weeks ago but it seems to be quite well. General Your general opinion of this product. Wow..The Peterson Strobe Tuning technology can be absolutely maddening at times. This is not a quick tune to pitch and go..It is highly accurate and requires alot of patience to get your instrument perfect. My biggest issue with it, is that I get nauseous from watching the blocks go backwards then forwards then backwards...etc. They never completely stay still! It is almost too accurate for the bedroom player just looking to tune up a guitar and do some jamming. It forces perfection and diligence. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? It works almost too well.. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? No tone to be had. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Very nice brushed finish..I like it alot. Action How was the action out of the box? No action..
