Eno Clip-on Guitar Tuner Review

The Eno Clip-on Guitar Tuner

Noisy room? Doesn’t Matter!

The Eno clip-on guitar tuner is a very capable guitar tuner for its price. The main feature of the tuner is that it allows you to tune using the vibrations that your guitar creates by clipping on to your guitar headstock. Using vibrations instead of sound means that background noise does not affect the function of the tuner, which means tuning up in a live gig environment is a breeze.

Mic

The mic works as you would expect, but I don’t see why you would use the mic to tune as the vibration tuning works so well.

Chromatic Tuning

The Eno is a chromatic tuner. The tuner will detect  all pitches in the chromatic scale (e.g. B, C, C#, D, D#, E, F) and therefore allows the tuning of other instruments including saxophones. The tuner automatically selects the nearest note while tuning, so it is a completely hands-off experience once you’ve clipped it to your instrument.

Frequency

You are able to set the frequency of the tuner manually, however, 440hz is the standard frequency for the guitar, so stick to this for the best results.

The Screen

The screen lights up red when out of tune and changes to green when in tune. There is also an instrument select mode that allows you to tune a guitar, bass, violin, or use chromatic tuning (GBVC).

Downsides

I did find the power button a little inconsistent. You have to really press down on the button to get the tuner to power up, but I think I can overlook this minor problem at this price-point.

Verdict

At this price you can’t go wrong – a fully functional chromatic tuner for a bargain price. At the time of writing, it was for sale on Amazon for £5.75. Check out the Amazon link below for an up-to-date price:

If your battery has died, you can always go to the Fender Online Tuner to tune your guitar!

 

Guitar Tuition Room Completed

Guitar Tuition Room

After some tidying up and a sizeable investment, my guitar tuition room is finally finished. Just waiting for my guitar stand to arrive to finish the job.

I bought a music stand, new amplifier (a nice Roland Cube) and plenty of spare strings and plectrums among other things. The big Marshall amp in the background is a relic of my past guitar playing exploits that sadly does not function 100% these days – the overdrive channel doesn’t work anymore, so I’m stuck with the clean channel and that’s no fun for a rocker! Anyway, the Roland Cube (in front of the Marshall) is more than up to the task despite its smaller stature – it’s a cracking little amp.

In future posts I will be writing some reviews on the recent equipment I’ve bought, to let you guys know if it’s any good.

Have a look at the Roland Cube 40GX on Amazon:

I will be giving my first guitar lesson on Thursday. Who knows what the future of rock music holds for that young man – will he become the next Ed Sheeran? Let’s hope so!
