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.

    This is SOOOO easy to use! I had been trying to use an online tuner and had trouble tuning my guitar. This little miracle tells me which way to tune the string and when I get there. Great value!

      Comments about Snark SN-1 Guitar & Bass Tuner:

      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.

          I've used alot of different headstock tuners on my Martin's, mandolin & fiddle. And now...a Nashville Telecaster. No matter how much background noise, this tuner is spot on! So easy to read also. Can't go wrong here folks...

            The Snark tuner worked perfectly right out of the box. I bought 2 more as stocking stuffers for my two guitar playing boys. Seems to tune very accuratly. I read the reviews that said to be cautious with the clip guitar attachment because it can be breakable. Have been careful and had no problems with it.

              I already had one of these tuners, and it is excellent. Very accurate and easy to use. When I saw the sale price, I couldn't resist getting another one.

                Practical, very fast and precise, easy to use. I bought two of them and I use on my electric guitars, acoustic guitars and on a 5 strings bass guitar.
                I am very happy with the purchase, it's a great little tool and surely can't bit the price. A must have.

                  I rated this tuner as excellent with regards to the effectiveness of it's tuning ability, but I gave it a poor quality because of the swivel mount. The three nub mount that holds the ball end of the tuner/face to the clip broke. Two of the three nubs broke off completely. I've had the tuner for about three years and I didn't expect it to last forever. I attempted to fix it with superglue, but it didn't hold. Even though the mount broke I am going to replace it with two of them. One for my guitars and the other for my basses.
