If you've owned or seen another Snark tuner, you've seen the bright dial that makes these tuners exceptional. The mini tuner has the great Snark display, and is quite small; you can leave it on the headstock so it won't get knocked off or jam against the side or top of the guitar case.

On the other hand, it's so small that I have to drag it over to the corner of the headstock so my hand doesn't conceal the face of the tuner while I'm tuning guitar strings 6 and 5. All in all, I like this Snark tuner for its unobtrusive size and clear, bright display. It's easy to use in the dark and easy to see (even without my glasses!).

I have the regular full size snark with the movable head and the only issue with it is that i have broken one before so they are easily breakable. But since I play bass its very hard to see this tuner in its angle. Doesn't matter how I place it on the head stock its very hard to make out what the note name is and where the blocks of color fall into place being sharp or flat. This unit probably works great for guitars which I have a few of so i'll keep it for that, but not very good for bass heads.

          I used the Blue Snark before this and loved it. Unfortunately I lost it, but the good news is I replaced it with this one. It works soooo much better, what a great design. It really clips on stronger than the other and is a lot easier to read than the old one. Best little tool a musician can slip into his pocket.....AWESOME.

              Comments about Snark Mini Guitar & Bass Clip-On Tuner:

              This clip-on tuner is non articulated and I defy anyone to find a position on a guitar that allows for easy viewing. Compounding the issue is the fact that the LCD screen has poor off-axis viewing... i.e., unless you're looking directly at it, the image is of poor quality. I would suspect that MF has a lot of these and they don't sell well, which is why they keep popping up on their sales. I'd avoid this in favor of the intellitouch PT10 or any of the basic Snark units, which allow you to tilt the screen to a usable position.

              I like the style of the SN-1 Snark and thought it was a good deal. I am not so impressed with this design. It has a major flaw in easy of use. and I think Snark had it write with the SN models. This one is moer expensive for some reason. i would not recommend this tuner

                  I have a few NS mini tuners which I love, so I tried this one because it looked prettier. haha

                  Bad idea - it doesn't fit on my headstock very well at all and it's really clunky.

                  Buy the NS mini instead.

                          I like Snark tuners but have had poor luck with the bigger Snark units durability at the pivot point. (have had 2 of them and the ears bend and then break unless you are very careful with them). This mini tuner has a stronger hinge set up and I am hoping it lasts. Time will tell. So far the only thing I am not totally happy with is the angle of the screen, it would be a bit better is angled a little more towards the musician. Function is very good so far.

                              Snark tuners are great, and this is no exception. This is a custom tuner, so it is available only through Musician's Friend and affiliates. What's custom is the orange color and the tilted screen (that is, the bottom is on the diagonal rather than lining up with a side).

                              Some might think that this tuner is unique due to its size. Not so. The downside is that the same size, blue Son of Snark mini is available at less than half the price.

                              I can honestly believe (although no one has claimed) that the price is necessitated by having a custom tuner with a small run. No economies of scale. And, if you want orange, this is the only game in town. It's too rich for my blood, but as they say on the WWW: YMMV.

                              Five stars because it's a great tuner if price doesn't factor into the review.
