I've always been a fan of clip on tuners because of the convenience and the ability to tune in noisy environments. I had been using the Intellitouch PT10 and PT20 for a long time. While they are pretty good tuners, I quickly noticed that there was a pretty wide range of pitch, relatively speaking, that the tuner would indicate as being in tune. This is unacceptable if you ask me. Another thing that people fail to realize about those tuners is that the distance between 0 ( in tune) and +20 cents is only 3 or 4 notches in the LED display, so you could be anywhere from +1 to about +7 cents out of tune and it will read the same. Bottom line - I wanted a dead accurate tuner.

Peterson strobe tuners have always been the top of the line go-to tuner. You always find them on the benches of the best techs in the world. Their version of the clip on, the StroboClip, hold the same high standard for accurate tuning. The StroboClip is accurate within 1/10 of a cent. Now that's what I call accuracy. You can adjust relative pitch from 440 and also change key/capo compensation if needed, but the biggest feature is what they call Sweetened Tuning presets, which is basically a preset that you set to whatever instrument you're tuning in attempt to make it even more accurate. Really the only bad thing about this tuner is the price tag. Peterson has always been pricey and somewhat rightfully so, but I wish it was maybe 20% cheaper. Even so, I'm happy with paying for such an accurate tuner. If you want to be confident that you're always perfectly in tune, spend the extra money on this tuner.

I think with a little re-engineering the StroboClip could be a fantastic tuner. In my opinion, for the money it's a bit overpriced considering the availability of so many other high quality, less expensive tuners.
Love the sweetened tunings. Really adds value to the StroboClip.
Certainly not for stage use (I don't think it would survive very long) but works well at home. As others have mentioned it's built from rather lightweight plastic so it doesn't seem like it will stand up to much accidental wear. The clip is not as strong as the clip on my Snark SN2. It does the job but does not attach very securely to the headstock. For some reason the StroboClip refuses to tune the low E. I've tried plucking with a pick to a lightly applied finger and regardless the tuner display bounces from E to B and back so quickly it is almost impossible to see if the low E is in tune. I tune the 5 higher strings with the StroboClip then tune the low E by ear from the other strings. I haven't read other folks having this problem so I don't know if I am doing something wrong or received a bad unit. No such problems with the Snark but it also does not have the flexibility of the sweetened tunings though it is faster to tune with than the StroboClip.
Seems expensive considering the feature set and quality that might stand some improvement. The sweetened tunings are really nice and that is why I still use it. I haven't used their true stroboscopic tuners but it makes me want to try them.

    I use the stroboclip to not only tune my own guitars but also to do setups for customers. Having an accurate tuner when setting intonation is invaluable. Thanks Peterson!

    Comments about Peterson StroboClip SC-1 Clip-On Strobe Tuner:

    This tuner is very compact and accurate. I was bummed that it failed to power on after I had been using it a few years, so I switched to another brand tuner and frankly, forgot about this unit. I missed the compactness and accuracy of this unit, so I contacted the vendor to see about sending it in for repairs. They are being very generous and are going to replace the broken unit without charge. A very generous policy, indeed. I am looking forward to using this model tuner again, as it is superior in accuracy to other clip-on tuners that I have used.

    Product would not stay powered on when it first arrived. Thought I had a bad unit. Then stopped working all together. Changed the battery, and it seems okay now, but still evaluating it.

        Comments about Peterson StroboClip SC-1 Clip-On Strobe Tuner:

        I have several acoustic guitars, of which one is a 12 string. The StroboClip has a setting specifically for both octaves for the 12 string. It can tune to keys other than "standard tuning": If your using a capo, it'll tune to what ever fret your capo-ed to; it'll tune multiple instruments (string & brass, check the manufacturers' web site for a full listing). BUT, it's fragile, not user friendly (keep the instruction booklet handy), and sensitive (seems to have a problem finding low "E"). If you have multiple instruments i.e. guitars, violas, uke, etc., then consider the StroboClip. However, if you're just getting started, look else where.

          I bought one about 4 months ago to do the setup on a guitar that I had installed a Earvana nut on. It proved to be the single most accurate tuner I have ever purchased and has the Buzz Feiten offsets for the 4 guitars that I have that have that. It seems to do a more accurate job than the Korg DT1 which is the most popular Buzz Feiten tuner. I left my first at a gig so I ordered another and really have found the same quality in both.

              Takes tuning a step farther than my assumed perfect pitch ear. Just for sport I tuned an old flattop I have kicking around which has always been sour and hard to play and I was amazed how effective the sweetened tuning setting worked.
