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.

      I purchased this tuner on discount. It was a good value for the price I paid.
      The display is nice and bright in the shade or normal room lighting. I have not tested it in bright lights or sun.

          Comments about Snark SN-1 Guitar & Bass Tuner:

          When I was buying this, I was very worried since I was buying for a ukulele. I have a guitar and a ukulele and I wanted one tuner for both of them. I am glad thatI took the risk. This can tune more than just guitars and basses. If you want one tuner for multiple stringed instruments, this is the tuner for you.

                One of the best, inexpensive investments I've made. Although I have a tuner on my pedalboard, this is a great addition for any musician. I mostly use on banjo, mandolin and acoustic instruments. This tuner does come in handy when sitting around noodling on an electric without being plugged in.
