its always there, just not always advertised. I think ths is a good tuner, more precise than my snarks.

I bought one around the first of the year and it's still working great! Definitely a good buy. May buy another one so I have one for each uke. They are cheap enough so why not?

It looks nice but they don't recognize Canada as a legitimate place to ship to so I'll have to pass.

I bought one of these from Reverb a month or so ago. So far, it's got very high marks from me. It is simple, accurate and has nice bright colors and only one button.

The tuner that this replaced had 6 buttons, a built in metronome and cost quite a bit more. It also had a monochromatic display and the buttons were tiny. I thought that the increased functionality would be a winner, but I was wrong.

With these type of simple devices more buttons is usually a really bad sign.

Will they let you order another one? Or do they blacklist you after the first one?

It looks like it's limited to 1 per order, or at least you are not prevented from purchasing another up until the "buy now" button gets pushed.

No sales to Canada. Unlike the Facebook page too...

How long between orders? I bought one when I first heard about them several months ago. I tried again today and it went through and they confirmed my payment.

If they were going to be strict about it, I'd think they would have some database comparison script to see who's ordered one before (I used the same email addy so that would be easy to tell) and reject the payment/order.

Mine have shown up one day after the projected delivery date. Maybe a little over a week. Worth it for sure.

Got mine today. A little disappointed it doesn't have an off feature? Just turn it on and wait 3 minutes for it to go off??

Bought on the 16th and received today on the 21st.

Have a blue Snark tuner with usage of three months.

The Reverb tuner didn't seem accurate at first. It took a few tries to realize that it needs to show "U" for ukulele, apparently, to be accurate - keep lightly clicking the off button and it appears under the displayed note.

What I didn't realize is that it would show which string is vibrating - displayed to the left of the note.

I swear my Snark is jealous because the screen on it just got really dim. It could just be that the batteries are three months old, but I still think it is jealous.

It does seem that the Snark will display the chord played as well as the individually plucked string while the Reverb one will do the plucked string.

Mine took a little less than a week. It is definitely a better tuner than I expected for $3. Very happy with that purchase. Thanks for the heads up mds725.

Best $3 I've spent lately! Thanks for the heads up everybody.

Mine came without a battery - no wonder it was $3. My dog thinks it tastes good - I found her chewing on it this morning. It still works but is decorated with tooth marks.

I bought one shortly after mds725 posted about them (thanks!!). Works fine. Hard to argue with $3 and free shipping!

The deal is once again no longer on their website. I went to buy another one for a new uke I just bought. At that price I'll have one on every instrument. I have had mine for 2 or 3 months and it's always worked great!

Anybody have one of these? I wonder what type battery it takes.

I found this vid, the battery is a CR2032. There is also a poorly done video of him taking it out of the box if interested.

They come with a battery (or at least mine did). Just ordered successfully another one after the first one snapped at the pivot - I'm not sure what happened but I'm relatively sure it was the fault of one of my kids, not the tuner. Reverb also has a similar deal on 10' and 20' instrument cables for those of you who are electrified.

You should have provided a link to the cables. Reverb's search engine is horrific.

20 foot orange cable $9 https://reverb.com/item/123175-reverb-20-foot-1-4-guitar-cable-orange-limit-1

They all have double straight ends... I prefer 90 degree ends, but maybe someone will want this deal.

thanks! none of these showed up on any searches I did and yes I did grab a cable.
