Sound Quality
Doesnt color the sound that I noticed. Clean or distorted. This thing does NOT do alternate tunings. Anyone thinking they can use it to tune drop C should look for something else. Standard tuning works ok, its quick. I tune up with a Korg CA30 and then plug into this to compare. The 8500 reads the tone as slightly sharp, which I know it is not. The little Korg is more accurate.
Who knows... who cares. I don't even want to use it. The plastic is pretty flimsy. They are made in Sri Lanka... and anyone who has had to deal with any kind of computer tech support knows who you're dealing with when you call over there...
General Comments
If you have no other choice than to use this, I guess it would work. Its not super accurate and doesn't read certain notes. I havn't used any other pedal tuners yet but I can't imagine them being any worse than this thing. Guess I will stick to my inconvenient little Korg until I can get a decent pedal tuner.
