    Description

    Details

    The Oahu clip on tuner is a one button chromatic tuner. It stays in 440 like you need, and tunes anything you can clip it onto. This is our best-selling tuner for good reason. It has a nice big and bright display. It is very easy to use, it is accurate, and they are made to last. Check out the video review- The Oahu Chromatic Tuner is simple to use, and works on all stringed instruments. It lacks some of the unnecessary "bells and whistles" of other tuners which offer optional settings that you don't need and will never use. Ko'olau says "we decided that quality and simplicity (on or off), and of course, affordability is more important." The LCD display has one easy to see color, and when in tune, the needle points to the center, also displaying three additional lines along with three lines to display an in tune pitch. Also, the clip-on bracket is sturdy and durable.

    Quick, easy, accurate and my battery has lasted
    I've been using this for about a year now and it has become my go to tuner for both my Ukes. It has been used daily and multiple times some days. I have NOT had battery issues and am still using the same battery it came with. It has been quick to use, very accurate and easy. Now, if I could get my E string to stop stretching ;)

    Simple and effective
    This tuner is accurate and very easy to use (it has just a single button for turning it on and off), with a nice sized display. I have not had problems with the battery life as others have reported. I used the tuner pretty much daily for 9 months or so before needing to change the battery,

    easy to use
    Only 1 button to push for on and off and you can begin tuning your uke.
    I have been removing the battery after each so it wouldn't drain as quickly.

    battery life is very poor
    It's a nice tuner, except I've gone through two batteries in less than a year (and I do turn it off manually), so I'm going to chuck it and get a different brand. My other tuners (Meisel and Snark) are older, and I've never replaced batteries on them. Unfortunately I paid for the Oahu - it wasn't a throw-in.

    Very handy tuner
    This tuner was part of a package and I love it. Very easy to use. My only concern is that the battery seems to go fast. I don't know if I am accidentally leaving it on or if it is a battery hog. Chances are it is me.
    I'd recommend this tuner.

    Great Product
    It's good to have stuff that does what it is designed to do simply and accurately. This Oahu tuner is one of those products. Just clip it on and it tells you if you are in tune or above or below. One tip is to turn it off manually after use to save the battery. I have been using it for 8 months and haven't changed the battery yet.

    I just got this for Christmas and already my playing has improved. Who knew being in tune would help so much! It is small enough so it's not obtrusive, but big enough to actually see the screen. .

    Tuning made simple!
    I was amazed at just how easy this tuner was to use. For the price, there is nothing more easy to use. It is so cool to use this device to get the right sound from your uke. I remember using pitch pipes to tune with and they just never seemed to be right. This tuner makes it so easy to get the right tone and there is no guess work. It could not be easier to use. Great product and I am so glad that I chose Oahu.

    Nice clip-on tuner, but I wonder about it's accuracy?
    I like the Oahu clip-on tuner for it's convenience, quality of construction, and appearance. Through trial and error I learned to manually turn off the tuner to save the battery, as opposed to letting it go off automatically.

    I have a problem with the Oahu tuner, only because I can not gauge the accuracy of the tuner. I have two other types of chromatic tuners, and non agree. More research needed by me.

    horrible battery life
    I'm not sure if I received a defective one of these oahu clip-on tuner or if the product is supposed to be like this, but after only two weeks of using it, it has completely run out of battery. I bought this clip on tuner with my kala ka-s soprano uke and I have to say the product itself is very useful and convenient, but I suggest buying a different clip on tuner that would have a better battery life.

    A must for your musical package
    I am new to music in general. Purchasing the Oahu tuner was a must and something I've never regretted. When I play, I know any sounds that aren't perfect are because it's me not fretting correctly or accidently touching another string. With the Oahu, each session begins in tune and that certainty helps your confidence and allows you to work out your other issues when learning. The Oahu tuner,...not an option, but a must-have in my opinion.

    Great For Tuning
    I have been playing for about four months as of this review. I am able to get my ukulele in tune very fast, which I appreciate as a beginner when I'm likely to get frustrated. My year old kid has managed to slobber a lot on it and now the screen is dim. After reading other reviews, I may have one where the battery drains fast instead of it being a water problem. If this is the case, I would probably be willing to risk getting a defective one and buying this again, depending on availability and price.

    It works
    The tuner does what it is suppose to do. It does tend to draw down the battery voltage quickly compared to other electronic tuners I have used (e.g., Korg and Yamaha), so I second the recommendation of another reviewer to stow it when it is not being used to tune your uke.

    Good but start button very sensitive
    I like very much this Tuner, but as a French national living in Tahiti, I learned the Latin system not the English system with the letters and it took me a little bit to learn it again. It would be great if a model with the latin system was sold on the website. Also the start button is very sensitive therefore as soon as it touches something it starts and then uses batteries faster.

    best tuner
    I got this as an extra with my Kala Acacia tenor. It is so easy to use and reliable that I recommend it to others all the time. Maybe others are sturdier, but it's not like I throw this thing around the place.

    It was a great buy. I couldn't imagine uke life without it. :)

    Nice tuner for the price
    I ordered this tuner with my Kala–GAT after watching Aaron’s review. It’s a pretty nice tuner for the price. It clips firmly on the headstock, is lightweight, has a nice, bright display, and will shut itself off after a few minutes. Being able to tune down/up with it a step or half step is nice as well. Beats the heck out of my regular guitar tuner.

    This is the best investment ever. Makes tuning easy especially when you don't know what you are doing. I showed mine to my cousin who is very experienced and she ordered one just to have. You can't go wrong with it. I've had mine for over 9 months and have had no issues with it.

    Must buy for beginners
    I got this tuner as part of a package with my Kala ka-s and I must say its been a lifesaver! Being as its my first uke, or any string instrument for that matter I have no clue how to tune strings and this tuner really helped. It's simple and easy to use. I use it every time I play and it hasn't failed me yet. I suggest every beginner should the extra few bucks to get one. It's well worth it!

    So far so good
    I have only been using this tuner for a couple of weeks and it seems sturdy enough for a tuner. I don't expect such a product to be bulletproof. I used it to tune my nephew's beater elementary school low G uke as well as my high G uke and I can assure you that it is far superior than the free apple app!

    Eats Batteries
    Tuner works well, but it drains the battery if you don't remove it after use. I've had to replace the battery twice now, costing more than the tuner itself. Try a different tuner, if you can.

    Not the sturdiest, but easy to use
    The first one broke where the tuner and clamp meet. If this were a metal instead of plastic piece, it would hold up better. That said, it is really simple to use, and if you are careful, it will hold up - just be gentle!

    Good tuner
    I purchased this tuner with my MK-C Concert Ukulele because I was just starting out and needed a first tuner. This job, it fulfilled very well. I love this tuner, it's very accurate, easy to read, and does the job right.

    The cons are that the battery died on me sooner than I expected. It must drain battery life while turned off or just a lot while it's on.

    Otherwise, this is a great little tuner, especially for beginners, and I highly recommend it.

    Tuner works great!
    I purchased this tuner from Hawaii Music along with my uke back in May of 2012, and so far (as of December 2012, with multiple uses everyday) it is holding up great. It tunes the strings very accurately and it is still in perfect condition even after clamping it on and off many times a day. There has been no dimming or malfunctioning of the LCD, and I have not had to change the batteries once. Great little tuner!

    Easy and compact!
    This easy to use little guy is just what every ukulele player needs! It's so small and compact you can store it nearly anywhere with no hassle. It's even as easy as it is small. Pull it out, clip it on your uke and tune away! Nice blue backlight, easy to read letters and symbols. Another great product, had it for over 6 months and no troubles yet. (And for all you beginner uke players, like myself, the standard tuning is GCEA.) Good luck!

    Very weak Construction
    I purchases this tuner with my Kala Tenor Uke based on the review on this site. Within weeks, the tuner snapped at the joint between the clamp and the tuner.

    The problem is the joint was very weak and doesn't appear to be constructed well. I called to ask to exchange the tuner and Mike offered to ship one out, but its been over 2 months and I still haven't received it.
