Offers both tuner and metronome functions simultaneously or independently. Its large LCD-type needle delivers both the accuracy of an LCD and the excellent visibility of a needle indicator. It also has LED indicators that show pitch deviation or blink to indicate the tempo, making the TM-40 a highly visual tool. Provides quick and accurate coverage of a wide spectrum of notes and pitches for wind, string, keyboard, and most other instruments Excellent Functionality and a Wide Detection Range With a detection range of C1 (32.70 Hz) - C8 (4186.01 Hz), the TM-40 provides quick and accurate coverage of a wide spectrum of notes and pitches for wind, string, keyboard and most other instruments. Even low-pitched instruments with complex overtone structures are detected with the precision you expect from Korg. A built-in high-sensitivity mic allows acoustic instruments such as guitar and ukulele to be tuned easily and accurately, and the separately sold CM-100 contact mic can be used to send the vibrations directly to the tuner for even greater precision. Sound Out! In addition to the visual tuning guide provided by the meter, you can use the TM-40_s built-in speaker to produce a tuning reference pitch (Sound Out).

Metronome is loud enough to hear while I'm playing my acoustic guitar. Plays a "big" beat at the beginning of each measure. You can adjust to up to 9 beats per measure as well as have it play doublets, triplets, 1st and 3rd only triplets. Tempo is adjusted either by the single bpm or you can set it to standard metronome which runs by 2's,and 4's. It also has a "tap" tempo button.
I really enjoy using this! It's a great tool to have and seems to be more accurate than the "needle" tuner I used to use. Worth the money in my opinion.
There are two excellent features to this small convenience, this "digital tuner": most important for me and for anyone who plays instruments at A415 and A466 more often than at A440 is that the pitch can be "calibrated" up or down sufficiently to handle quarter-comma mean-tone at A446 or sixth-comma mean-tone at A415. The second excellence is that the battery power is very long-lasting; a 'pocket' or instrument-case tuner needs to have long battery life.
Amateurs will find this tuner quite adequate for settling the inevitable disputes about who's in or out of tune. Music teachers will find it useful because it's modest enough in price to insist that students get one if they need one. I use mine chiefly to wage preemptive warfare against villainous double-reeds. I've knocked it off my stand several times, by the way, as you will also, and it seems remarkably shock-proof.
1.) I play the harp, and a digital tuner is a must. It helps me tune my harp on a daily basis...but make sure you purchase the Korg CM-100L Clip On Contact Microphone For Tuners, it was $10 bucks and worth the investment. It helps the digital tuner pick up on the vibrations so your instrument will be even more accurately tuned.
2.) The metronome is a great feature for newbies and the experienced. My harp teacher who has been playing the harp for over 40 years swears by the metronome. It has many options to choose from to help the user learn the music they are playing quicker (e.g. staying on beat, slowing down the tempo to learn the piece slowly while still staying on beat and then being able to raise the tempo the more comfortable and bored you get playing the slower tempo.) It also has a button for 'taps'.
This is a very easy to read digital tuner metronome and I have been completely satisfied with it.
What I love is that you can turn on just the tuner or turn on just the metronome. You do not turn both on automatically. I love the small, portable size too. And I love the decent price. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase.
