Sound Quality
Have used for bass and guitar and never noticed it affecting the sound one way or the other.
I bought this tuner back in the mid 80s and it keeps working it's way back into my pedal board in place of tuners built into multi-effects, Korg tuners and most recently a Boss tuner that went flakey. It's made out of plastic but I still keep it in it's box when it's not in use and it still looks almost new and has never failed me as others have.
General Comments
I have been playing around 45 years and have various guitars and basses but recently mainly play out with bass. I originally paid around $80 or $90 in 1987 but the prices fell quite a bit before they were finally discontinued, but I got my moneys worth out of it and I think these were a terrific bargain at the end. I am now more partial to chromatic tuners but for a basic gigging setup, this can't be beat. If I found another one working and available, I might be inclined to buy it.
