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.

Comments about Snark SN-1 Guitar & Bass Tuner:

First I have own five of these tuners from the days when they were much less expensive
I have found two big problem. They is a desin flaw where the pivot meets the tuner. What happens is that the female socket plastic parts are fragile and they easily break. leaving the musician withan unrepairable piece of junk.
The designers were not as competent as the marketing arm of snark. The guys in GC had warned me of this on several occassions while promoting a different tuner. They were right. do not buy this product

Died w/in a year

Comments about Snark SN-1 Guitar & Bass Tuner:

My experience was like Uncle Steve's. It was great while it lasted. I used it in my basement now and again for less than a year but after a while it got real faint so I tried a new battery but it wasn't the battery. Now you can't see anything. Kind of a waste. I'll buy another one in the hopes I just had a dud because these really are convenient, but I wasn't real impressed so far with its durability.

    Comments about Snark SN-1 Guitar & Bass Tuner:

    Came pretty quick in the mail. Snark tuner was what I ordered but my last one was smaller. This is a little large to leave on . Can't put it in my gig bag for quick take along when playing out, Could do that with my last one . But it does work well and my only fault is the size.

        Wow. This thing works. Easy to use. Great visibility and tuning indicator is very precise. Used it first time live last night and it did the trick. I was using the tuner in my effects pedal but this works so much better.

                This tuner is easy to use, highly portable and accurate. That's why Snark has sold millions of these. I don't know a musician that doesn't have one and uses them everyday. The customer service is superlative, bar none. I had a problem with one and the Snark Company responded quickly and completely to my satisfaction. Love these tuners in every way. I've been playing for 45 years, own 13 guitars and 7 tube amps. I care about tune and tone. Believe my recommendation.
