This is the 3rd chromatic tuner I've owned and the best one yet. Some of my fellow musicians have bought the Snark tuners (great tuner for the money), but found that the clip-on mechanism is not that well designed and will break after some use. The Deltalab tuner costs a bit more but worth the extra money. So far so good.

I have had two of these. The first worked well but I lost it. The second was junk, kept having to take out the battery to reset the unit. Within a month it would no longer reset, it gave up the ghost.
I found the first and gave it to my niece who is a beginning student, the functions are a little too much for a beginner who is trying to just learn basics. I chalk the poor quality of second off to cheap asian electronics: Might last a life time, might last half an hour. Just a gamble. I would be very hesitant to have this as my only tuner on a gig. In my case I always keep an old KORG plug in tuner around, just in case.

Overall it's a good tuner and accurate, LOVE the display and it's VERY easy to read in all conditions except direct sunlight. Never had a problem tuning in a loud enviroment or while music was playing or other intruments where tuning. THe universal joint on the display holds up well. Always just left it on the last instrument tuned (Usually bass) and stuck it in the case. It would just bend out of the way. Never broke it.
Used t on guitar, bass, mandolin, dulcimer and uke. All with great accuracy and without issue.
I never used it for anything but standard tuning so cannot speak to the other features. I would recomment it(with a cautionary word) to someone who has need of the metronome and flat/sharp tunings. As for me, since all I need is standard tuning, I bought a competitor's unit for a third of the price and am very happy.

Comments about DeltaLab CT-30 Clip-On Tuner:

I have owned two of these. It is accurate, easy to use and I've used it on bass, guitar, mandolin and dulcimer. Good display which is very easy to see in different light situations. Tad hard to pick up if playing outside but usable.
Problem with the first unit was it would occassionally "stick". When powered up the entire face would light up and the unit unusable. The baterry had to be removed to reset the unit. Not everytime but enough to be a real pain. Chalked it up to a faulty unit and got another, same issue.
For tuning before a show no problem as it's an easy fix, for a tune up during a set it's very irritating.
It gets me by but my next tuner will NOT be this unit.

      Comments about DeltaLab CT-30 Clip-On Tuner:

      The tuner is easy to use, tunes accurately. Picks up all strings, some of my tuners have trouble with the low E. The screen is bright and colorful. A nice feature is it retains the 432hz setting after you turn it off, not all tuners do.

            I needed a good chromatic Tuner for Baritone guitars and drop tunings. The sales staff suggested this one over all the saying they have had excellent feedback from other customers. Very durable, easy to use and see, does an excellent job and is outsandingly accurate. Excellent Tuner for Guitars, Basses, etc.

              I have two of these and two Snarks, one of which is a Super Snark. I like these better because the display shows the tuning in pennies for greater accuracy. I admit that the swivel seems a little flimsey, but just be careful with it and no problems. Mine are two years old and I play daily.
