Qwik Tune Q12E Guitar Tuner Review

Qwik Tune Q12E First Impressions

"That works fine for me."

This is the only chromatic tuner I have used, but I'm very happy with it. I play in tunings such as E flat standard, Drop D all the way to Drop A. It did not work well the first time I put in the battery. They lock well, look great and adjustments are great with the 19:1 turning ratio. It is nice and bright, and there are two arrows.

Qwik Tune Q12E Final Thoughts

"The new ones work perfect!"

This tuner worked as good as any at a lower price than many I have seen and used. I've had this pedal for 10 years still works great. This is a fantastic tuner for playing in a band. It works every bit as well as the AW2G except missing a mic input. I bought the Qwik Tune tuner 2 pack a few weeks ago.
