Valeton CTU-1 Guitar Tuner Review

Valeton CTU-1 First Impressions


Overall, the product works great and does what it advertises! It works well for tuning my guitars and basses. If the color stays white and the meter points LEFT you are in low tune. I play a 7-string bass, tuned down to F#. This is the nicest tuner I have ever purchased.

Valeton CTU-1 Final Thoughts

"This one is perfect with all my guitars."

I have a couple other Valeton pedals, so, I trust the brand. Valeton products have proven solid & dependable in my experience. I just wouldn't record without first tuning with my 'reference' tuner. I primarily use it for acoustic guitars and ukuleles. I recently purchased the Valeton and I love it.
