Peterson 490 Guitar Tuner Review

Peterson 490 First Impressions

"Good product!"

I supply these to all of our string players. Peterson products have proven solid & dependable in my experience. The only thing is that, there are already apps which will do the same job. Put it on, and let it setup for 24hours with the 3M tape provided. This is a very handy and easy to use tuner.

Peterson 490 Final Thoughts

"The new ones work perfect!"

You wont have that size screwdriver at a gig, so use a coin. I'm a pianist, and I'm very fussy about the piano that I play being in tune. Very pleased with features, function, and reliability of this item. It's a great tuner, and allows a novice to easily and accurately tune their guitar. The entire thing is made of metal, so it feels very substantial as well.
