      I am a gigging professional that has been searching for a great tuner. I have found it. Just wish I would have had this years ago. I love that it stays clipped to my headstock and that I position it behind the headstock so the crowd doesn't even realize it is there. Very discrete. Also MUCH less time spent tuning in between songs which equals very happy fans! No one likes waiting on "that guy" tuning his guitar every song. DON'T BE THAT GUY! The rest of my band is ditching their pricey tuners and getting this!
      Has more features than most will ever need. Transpose mode allows easy "capo" tunings on the fly. Chromatic allows you to tune each string to whatever note you choose, therefore allowing "alternate" tunings. Metronome is a VERY nice feature for rehearsal. VERY easy and fast to operate.
      Quality is very good. When clipped on the headstock, it doesn't move. And I'm a VERY energetic performer. The accuracy rivals almost every tuner I have used, except some very high end strobe tuners that cost thousands. Currently I own Boss, Digitech, Korg, and several other pedal tuners. Was trying to find "THE tuner" that was accurate enough for my discriminating ear and fast. Even with subs rumbling and guitars blaring, this tuner tracks accurately and allows me to tune mid song if needed with NO issues whatsoever. This tuner has DEFINATELY made tuning easier, faster, and MUCH more accurate.
      Literally an amazing value. I would easily have paid double for this and been happy paying it.

      If it wasn't for the goofy and inelegant way the Snark handles calibration I would have given this five stars. For those who only tune to 440 Hz this won't be an issue. For those who tune to something other than 440 you may want to consider something else.

      For someone like me, who tunes to 432 the Snark is a bit clunky. It recalibrates itself to 440 every time it is turned off and on. It also recalibrates itself to 440 every time the calibration button on the back of it is pressed. Note that when the Snark is powered on it does not display the calibration frequency. When the calibration button on the back is pressed it resets itself to 440 Hz and "440" pops up on the lower right side of the display. In order to recalibrate you have to press the (+) or (-) buttons on the back. As you do the display readout changes to show its current calibration. This is fairly easy to do by feel.

      Unfortunately, someone tuning to 432 Hz has to make 10 button presses every time the tuner is turned back on. If someone wanted to tune to 415 Hz it would require 27 button presses every time the tuner was turned on. It would have made a lot more sense to always have the calibration frequency show on the display and to simply have it default to whatever tuning was last used when it is powered up.

          As a quick clip on tuner with a bright display, this unit can't be beat.Especially for the price it's sold at. I use it primarily for Bass, and it works well. Occasionally you have to hit the low B's harmonic when in a noisy environment.

              I am very happy with "The Snark SN1" Clip on Tuner! I was using a turner on my cell phone, but it is used by using a microphone, and it was picking up sounds from inside the room, so it made it hard to tune my guitar, but since the SN1 works by vibration it make it quick and easy to tune. It has worked for me every time I've used it!

                      "FINALLY", a tuner that is READABLE in dark venues. The "old school" LCD tuners I've owned always required an external lamp of some sort, to say nothing of the "rig-a-ma-role" they put one through with all the associated in and out cable plugging! Don't have to alternate tuning methods between open or harmonic, or even while Capo'ed, for several different instruments as with the LCD's. Super Value all 'round, and like ice cubes in summer, it don't get much "COOLER". Thanx SNARK, I was told these were great, but "Who Knew"? Gb bg

                        I saw someone professional use one of these and had wanted one ever since. Now, I have one and I love it. Just clamp it on to any instrument that you plan on playing and you can do a quick tune up as soon as you're ready to play. I tune my electric lead guitar without it even being plugged in..
                        Def recommend to any stringed instrument player.

                        Great value in a very lightweight headstock tuner. Scale is visible except in bright daylight. Accuracy is reasonable and consistent. Use an electronic tuner for recording, but keep the Snark in place for the rest of the time.
