OVERVIEW

Ultracompact and accurate tuning.

The Snark S-5 Mini Guitar & Bass Tuner is one of the smallest clip-on tuners out there. It's fully chromatic and at just 1 x 1 inch hides perfectly behind your headstock. The bright diplay is big and easy to read, while the design is rugged enough to resist the riguers of stage and travel. The S-5 is ultrafast and accurate and works on acoustic and electric basses and guitars.

Other Snark models have better displays and attach more easily to head stocks.

    I play in a band that plays cultural music in my country (Bonaire).
    I use this to tune my electric-acoustic guitar and other string instruments.

    Comments about Snark S-5 Mini Guitar & Bass Tuner:

    This thing can stay on your guitar even when you put it in a case. It's so quick, people don't realize your not tuning by ear because you just glance at the tuning gears and you can see the tuner at the same time. The negative comment that I read: Can't tune the low E, well everyone knows that the low E and sometimes the B have to be one (light notch) flat. So that doesn't apply. Watch for the flat yellow on the low E and you'll be in tune. Also, highly accurate when you've got a capo on. Good correction factor and again, very fast!

    NOT FOR BASS

      Comments about Snark S-5 Mini Guitar & Bass Tuner:

      Works reasonably except lower tones. Low E is almost undetectable by this gizmo.
      A, D and G strings it works ok. I went back to my 20 year old Korg tuner (analog needle and all)
      so much easier and accurate. really no contest. Korg wins hands down. I think I will go look at their new stuff.

        I now have one on all my guitars, electric & acoustic. They're small, so they don't change the balance, I can leave it on the head when packing up so i always have one with me. Easy for me to see, & I wear glasses. Just turn on & tune.

          I love this particular version of the mini Snark tuner. Having the indicated pitch visible from the corner of the tuner, makes it much easier to read than the stock mini Snark tuner. This one is the best. And, it's black. The best color!

            Clip it on headstock, push button, green is go and you can do it all on stage while you speak for 5 seconds or 3 seconds to launch. Fast, quick-tune. While practising, don't have to think relative pitch with a fork. I pack one on the headstock of each guitar I have now and leave it there. I just have to remember to turn it off when I'm playing live because there's not enough time inbetween numbers.
