This thing is interesting. Wonder how it will handle bass?
Looks itty bitty.
Well thats kinda cool. Talk about a space saver.
Yeah, I wouldn't mind throwing this on a nano +
I like that a lot. It could fit on even the tightest of pedal boards.
We've come a long way since the ubiquitous Korg rack tuners.
Would be cool if you could have a cut out on one edge of the board and have it displayed there. It could be really streamlined. Of course, that would raise costs though. This is cool though. Hopefully it tracks low notes well
Reliability of the connections is my concern, as there is no ability to replace a broken cable.
If you are going with a small system like this, make it a battery operated one without the power pigtail.
Put a 1/8" TRS jack where the cables are now, and use an "insert" style Y jack that lets the user have flexibility over connections. Tip input, Ring output, Sleeve ground. This would reduce bulk for those setups with dedicated tuner outs, and let the user pick a 90 deg oor straight cable input.
I would like to see how bright it is, how accurate it is, and have adjustment for temperments or drop tuning. And, yes, handle lows.
I’m guessing it’s going to handle a low B about the same as most clip-on tuners, which isn’t great.
I don't see how that's an accurate statement as this looks like your bass is actually running into it. The tuner is not going off vibration, its going off a direct signal into it. So it seems...
And really, for guys with little boards I could see this being a great thing. Just find a nice way to mount it and it your golden. Would I use one? Maybe. If they aren't that expensive I may try one.
If it tracks a low B properly I'd zip tie it off the edge of my board. This looks good I'll be watching.
Snark super tights work well on my 5’ers, if you haven’t tried one.
I love the idea and form factor but I use my tuner as a mute.
If I remember correctly, they commented it would be $59.99. I'm guessing that's street price.
Oddly enough, I want mine always on. I had a gig where dropping to D live was part of the song, so I needed to be able to monitor it. Now I want it on all the time and need to buy a mute switch...
I’d miss my mute button. Probably the most used function of my board.
I usually hate naysayers who rag on new products but this looks stupid to me. Those tiny, dangly bits are sure to fail.
How's that thing working? Photocell? Just get your foot close to it? A tuner without a mute isn't for much I think...
The dongle has a power input, 1/4” in, 1/4” out, and is always on. The dongle picture’s scale is misleading.
I agree with all the “needs a mute” comments. The space savings make sense for small boards but then you gotta get creative on how to tune without the audience hearing it, changing amp levels (seems unreliable if you already sound checked and want to keep your amp volume “locked in”), or noisily unplugging your board’s output (could do the “unplug halfway” trick, but that seems like a pain). Seems like more hassle than it’s worth just to replace a mini-sized tuner pedal.
...now I see that it is designed to work with the tuner out of the volume pedal...
