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.

      It is the first time I've used a Delta product and it is impressive. I've tested it accuracy and found it to be excellent. The graphic display is quite colorful and easy to read. I highly recommend this product.

          They are easy to use and accurate, BUT the arm and the swivel connection are too thin and break. I've had two break and I don't really put them through any abuse.

            I have tried other tuners, but the Deltalab is just what I have been looking for, small, easy to use....keeps me in tune instantly at a dance or practice.

              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.

                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.
