Fieldpiece Digital Pocket Multimeter

About This Item

Essential for troubleshooting electric guitars! And even handier when it's battery-operated so you can take it to a gig for emergencies.

Here's a versatile model with the basic functions a guitar tech needs, at a great price. Reliable, accurate and conveniently autoranging (the decimal point moves to display the best resolution), it's a must-have for custom wiring jobs, pickup making, finding bad connections and testing components.

"This small unit is nice for us guys who are just checking for the basics like continuity and DC resistance. The auto ranging feature also makes it easy to use."
—Erick Coleman, repairman and StewMac tech advisor

For years we've sold a larger more expensive multimeter, but a guitar tech doesn't need everything that an electrician needs. This new unit is smaller and easier to use, all for less money.

The LCD display indicates AC/DC voltages, circuit continuity, ohm resistance of control pots and pickups, and the status of diodes in amps and effects.

The compact size fits easily in your pocket, tool box or guitar case, and the 21" test leads store conveniently inside the back cover. 10-minute auto-off saves battery life.

Batteries: Two 1.5-volt button-type LR-44, included; battery life approximately 70 hours in continuous operation.

This item could use a practical and easy-opening feature. It's irritating to open the flip case to find the leads. Take a tip from women's make-up cases that have a small ledge on the opposing lids so you can twist them open without breaking your nails. The case back also opens too far when you do get it open: the ends spread out to a full 7 inches. Who needs that? Would also benefit from alternate alligator clips that replace the pointed leads. Versatility, this thing doesn't have.

I LIKE the BEEP in the continuity check, the main reason I bought this multimeter. And the autoranging feature saves a whole bunch of twisting of a dial..so automatic!! Every change of a button setting and main red switching trips a beep to let you know it's been changed, a SUPER feature in the dark when you're on the side of the road with your car and trying to check voltage or continuity. The Fieldpiece multi-meter also shuts off if you forget to do it yourself, saving battery juice. And it comes with an easy-to-read manual that covers every function thoroughly yet is only the front and back size of a school notebook sheet of paper. You can set the instructions down, cover a corner with a small rock to keep the wind from blowing it away, and still read it easily from two feet away. Everything except the case was very well thought-out. Just one small change and this meter would be perfect for me.
