    If you flip back and forth between a dropped-note tuning and normal tuning, they are fantastic and work great. If not, then they're not so useful.

    Well, yeah.
    They do the job well.
    Then it's up to you to decide if they're worth the price.
  4. They surely work but its kinda cooler to know to tune your instrument on your own i've been practicing a lot and it takes me just about 20 sec to go from B-E-A-D-G(yes I play 5-string)anywhere to A-D-G-C-F,G-C-G-C-F,B-D-A-D-G,B-C-G-C-F,A#-D#-G#-C#-F#.What the hell I'm doing it even in live gigs and e without a tuner!Just train your ears and you'll have no use of d-tuners :hyper:
