Product Description

This is a great little chromatic tuner made by Planet Waves, which is D’Addario’s musical accessories company. It’s made of light, black plastic, which is not the rigid kind, so you don’t have to worry about breaking it by dropping it accidentally a few times. It has a clip made of the same material, with a thin rubber pad at the end to lean against your headstock (or any part of your instrument you are able to clip it onto). The clip has a steel spring and it is pivoted at the other end of the tuner with two eyelets and a miniature metal tube across both of them functioning as a bearing. I didn’t have a problem with clipping it on any guitar, and I have it for about a year now.

It works with electric and acoustic instruments, including bass or all kinds of bowed ones.

The sensor is at the bottom of the tuner, as well as the battery, which is a 3V CR2032 type Lithium/manganese dioxide button cell. As I said, it still works great after a year, with the same battery it came with. The tuner automatically shuts down after a period of inactivity to preserve battery life.

The display is a back-lit LCD kind, so you can use it in the dark. It has a battery indicator, several radial lines with the note indicator in the middle, and a frequency indicator. The display’s red color changes to green when you are in tune. It also indicates the note you are tuned to with two indicator lines on each side of it, and a little arrow on the top.

The PW-CT-10 has two buttons, one of them is the power button that you can turn it on with, the other one is to change the tuning frequency. The default is 440Hz.

I recommend it to anyone who needs a trusty tuner that does its job perfectly.
