    So can you not tune in 432hz with this?
    A shopper on Dec 24, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: According to the manual, the calibration for an A above middle C is limited to 436hz to 445hz. That eliminates the 432hz standard.
    why is it called a pedal tuner? Is this a simple plug in type or do I need some pedal?
    A shopper on Feb 4, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: You do not need a pedal. A "pedal" is a generic term for any guitar device that is constructed so it can be turned on or off using your foot. In this case, the device has a button that can be stepped on to activate or de-activate the device. It is not necessary to use your foot. I keep my pedal tuner on a desk and use a finger to press the on/off button. You do need a cable into the pedal from your guitar and, if you want the guitar's output to go to an amp, a cable from the pedal to the amp.
    Does this happen to have a strobe tuning mode?
    Matthew K on Apr 16, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: No, it doesn't have a strobe tuning mode. If you want true strobe tuning you have to shell out the $100+ that they cost. What you expect for $20???? I have 3 basses and the MonoPrice does , so far, excellent work at keeping them tuned to standard. I have a Fender tuner that doesn't come close to my MonoPrice.
    Does this pedal double as a splitter if you both the bypass out and the switched output (set on)?
    A shopper on Aug 25, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The bypass always allows signal to pass through all the time. The Output only passes signal when the pedal is turned off. You can use the output to tune silently. You can also use this to split your signal into two. One (bypass) Two (output). The catch is that the output will stop allowing signal through when the pedal is on. So if you have no need to have the pedal on while performing then Yes is does split the signal.
    Does this pedal use equal temperament or just temperament to tune? Thanks!
    A shopper on Jun 25, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: This, like most tuners is very precise when it comes to A440. Rigid tuning like this can sound a bit off for certain guitar chord intervals. You can find lots of videos online to sweeten your tuning. Guitar tuners that can automatically be set for sweetened tunings, like the Peterson , Stobo stomp cost $199.00. Even the Peterson clip-on version with sweetened tunings cost $59.99. The mono tunier is effective and inexpensive at $19.99. Just watch the videos and learn how to temper your tuning yourself with a standard tuner if you want a cost effective solution..
    Is it buffered?
    A shopper on Apr 28, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: No. This is not buffered. It is true bypass. It has two outputs. One is always bypass and the other cuts the signal when the pedal is on. I use it as a signal splitter. The always bypass goes to my amp and the other to my RockSmith cable. It allows me to play rocksmith but monitor my signal through my amp and pedals.
    Will this work to tune an electric autoharp? Not a harp... an autoharp. It has 36 strings.
    A shopper on Apr 19, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, this fully chromatic will tune most instruments that can plug audio from a 1/4" connector. For best results you may have to adjust the volume to ensue you are getting enough signal but not distorting the inout of the tuner. Some deep bass frequencies are out of range and may not register.

    comparison of monoprice, behringer, and korg tuner pedals
    see youtube video

    PROS: big, bright display. very fast response time. quality bypass with no observed latency or signal degradation. see attached youtube video comparison with other pedals.

    CONS: none, really

    Awesome
    I needed a tuner that had BIG letters and the ability to tune in flat mode. What do I mean by flat mode? Well, the band tunes down a half step so our E is actually Eb but we don't call it Eb, we call it E. All you do is click the Flat button and you can drop into flat mode or even go two steps further. In flat mode you tune to E and you see E on the screen but your note is actually Eb. Get it? Simple! The tuner appears to be True Bypass. I used Monoprice's Next Day service and got it in one day!

    PROS: Metal case. Simple to use. BIG letters. Bypass mode as well as Mute mode. Battery included.

    Fast, clear and accurate tuner
    I bought two of these because of the reviews online, as my Boss TU-2 was less than stellar. They work about as fast as my Snark headstock Tuners, which is to say, excellent. The display is bright and very easy to read. It comes with a 9V battery. It uses a standard Boss style 9V plug. I run mine off a One Spot. The housing is plastic, but I don't think I'll break it. If I do, I could just buy 3 more for the price of a Boss tuner. I can't see buying any other tuner as long as they still sell this.

    PROS: Bright
    Accurate
    Standard 9V plug
    Includes battery
    On par with speed and accuracy of Snark
    Faster than a Boss TU-2

    CONS: Plastic
    I had to peel off the rubber feet to attach Velcro for my pedal board, but that's pretty standard for most pedals.

    Chromatic Tuner
    The only thing preventing me from giving this a 10 is that it is in fact not as precise as other expensive tuners. I use this to tune my bass and I've noticed that my band mates' $100 Boss/Korg chromatic tuners do display more slight variations and deviance from a perfect tune for more precision when tuning.



    That being said, I have been using this thing at practice and gigs for almost a year now and it gets the job done. For $20 I am in tune, the construction is sturdy and the tuner is very close to as accurate as far more expensive ones. I'm really not sure how much there is to gain by buying a more expensive chromatic tuner pedal.

    PROS: Sturdy

    Works

    Accurate

    CONS: Not AS accurate as expensive tuners

    Well constructed and functional for the price
    This tuner is well constructed for the price, I have seen tuners that size and with the same functionalities sold for well over $50. Yet there is nothing wrong with this one. I plugged it and everything works, by pass, accuracy, and have been playing with it on-stage for two weeks.

    PROS: Decent accuracy

    Well constructed considering the price

    Functionalities in this device sell sometimes for well over $40

    CONS: I can't see anything negative about this tuner for the price paid.

    Mixed.
    This tuner works well. The display is bright and it tunes your guitar accurately, or at least according to my ears.

    The problem, and maybe it’s just mine, is the hole in the casing for the ac adapter jack is too big, and the adapter fall out easily.

    Also the bottom is not flat. Harder to stick to your pedalboard. I had to take all the rubber feet off and the battery compartment door to make it sit flat enough to apply Velcro to it and stick it on my board.

    Not bad, but those issues are enough I wouldn’t buy again.

    Purchased
    3 months ago
    Didn't even last a year, even after hardly using it.
    I bought one of these almost a year ago on January 5, 2015. I was really happy with it while it worked. I hardly used it and about twp months ago it just started flashing a single LED light on the front panel and that's all it still does. I have changed batteries and had it hooked to a plug in power supply and no change.

    PROS: Nice bright display and built really well.

    CONS: Quit working after about 10 months without hardly any use.

    Nice Tuner - Nice Price
    5/5

    PROS: Tuner works as it should for less than at the guitar shops.

    Great tuner (as far as I can tell)
    Really like this piece of gear. Not a guitar player by trade but every once in a while it is necessary to play one at a show and the utility and need for an on stage tuner became quickly apparent, luckily, as with most things these days, monoprice had me covered, and for way cheaper than anywhere else.



    I checked it against my KORG tuner using the true bypass, and they seemed to come up with more or less the same results, so it seems accurate for my purpose. And even without the battery in, I found that it could be a great mute button for my guitar using the regular output.



    Just make sure you're using a TS cable to activate it, not a TRS, I even tried hotpluging the TRS, but it wouldn't stay on consistently..

    PROS: Small

    Sturdy

    Works

    Bypass

    CONS: No power adapter included..but that's probably good to keep the price down

    Works Great

    CONS: non, but time will tell
