I try to use this product as a stand for my guitar, and to use the tuner to keep the instrument in tune. While the stand is compact, and folds nicely, once unfolded it's unstable, and challenging to get the guitar to balance on it properly unless I stop everything and place it with surgical precision. Also, the little tuner that came in the set worked correctly twice, and then stopped responding when tuning two of the strings. I was trying to avoid spending much more on a stand, but will now be out the cost of a standard unit, plus this one, which I won't use. I can't say that I recommend the purchase.
