    Your post is also a bit off-topic, but I must say that TC Electronic Unitune clip does have some microphone in it. I see no mic visible, but when I put it on it registers the notes accoustically...

    My over 40 years old tuning fork just got tested with Datuner app. It says it is 440.1 Hz. I go blame the app, but honestly over the years, perhaps some wear :(

    Yes because it is just crap knowledge. We don't have his voice lol.
    Guitar is not low, that the bass strings need be tuned somewhat lower, like his preference.

    It is not really possible to make any compensations in tuning to our ukulele imperfections with TC Electronic Unitune in strobe mode.

    Standard mode works great though in that.

    It does not matter much how long they have been in 'business'. Korg was my first electronic tuner. A plug to a tuner with an electric and alternative was the mic that broke down. What with the...

    Mic tuners on tablets or phones can be good too. Not so good with other noise. It is just so much a guessing game.

    Your uke might have some acoustic fundamental frequency, that totally blows away...

    Yes that sort of is ripock.

    Regarding tuning forks when you people want go old style. You should not buy ones with round rods. They are mostly just cheap crap. A good tuning fork needs have a...

    The problem with strobe tuners is this: We always want tune from down to up. Of course this is more a trouble with wound strings like in guitar, or low G uke and the nut lubrication. When we finally...

    Soprano with standard Am7 tuning can be so floppy, depending of the strings of course. So one must have a really good technique to not over bend them with fingering.

    Some chords are also easier...

    A bit off topic, but I just want to ask how your super hyper strobo tuner works with say friction winders?

    As always many thanks to your reviews and videos.

    A fancy tuner that tells something like errors in cents or to which octave the note analyzed belongs, can be fun yes.

    TC Electric Unitune is not such. What matters is the fastness and accuracy of...

    Neither, I prefer the Willie Nelson type strap on soundhole. Other ones just don't give enough support on such a light thing as ukulele.

    +1 on your post.

    We should not be put off with errors, because ukulele, guitar and piano are foremost accompanying instruments, yes. In that they work great.
