Korg AW-2: good optionIt works well. I usually use it on the piezo (contact) tuning mode, so it's picking up only my instrument. However, if I'm not playing it may pick up sympathetic vibrations of other instruments and show those tunings as well. I clip it onto the bell of my trombone where I can easily glance at it (during longer notes) and check my tuning. It can be switched to an ambient ("Mic") mode, allowing tuning readings for instruments to which it is not attached -- or for clipping it onto my stand.

Good Tuner for Wind InstrumentsThe tuner works as expected. The real significant benefit of this model is that it comes with two different types of clips. The clips are also very adjustable for positioning apporpriately on your instrument. I use this primarily for saxophones and the positioning works great on soprano, alto, tenor and baritone.

Not for GuitarMy mistake but I bought this over the guitar version (AW-2G) thinking I could use it for guitar also. However, the clip doesn't sit tight on the guitar neck. I wanted multi-instrument for guitar, horns etc. Guess guitar doesn't fit in Korgs multi instrument definition. Contacted Korg and was told they don't sell the guitar clip separately. I can't figure out why the AW-2 is $10 more then the AW-2. The only difference is the beveled edge of the clip on the AW-2 vs. the flat edge of the clip on the AW-2G. Plus you get a tiny clip with the AW-2 to attach to a mic stand which is definitely not worth the $10 difference. So the only way to get all three clips is to order two tuners. Bad packaging in my opinion on Korgs part.
Other than that, the little I've used the tuner it appears to work as advertised. Its readout is easy to see and tuning using either the piezzo or mic worked fine.
