OVERVIEW

A pair of tuners for one low price.

This package contains two guitar accessories that every player needs. The Snark SN1 Clip-On Chromatic Guitar/Bass Tuner makes tuning easy and fun! It's got a full-color display that rotates 360 for easy viewing, along with a sturdy clip that ensures it stays put on your headstock.

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


Order today, keep one with your electric and one with your acoustic. Or bass. Or 12-string.

The SN-1: I've owned 2 other brands of clip-on tuners (TuneTech, and the Peterson Strobe Tuner), and they both worked very well, but this one is better in my opinion, for 3 reasons. One: it's easy to position for max visibility because it's on a goose-neck which allows it to be adjusted to any angle (and can be positioned either in front of, or behind the headstock, whichever you prefer), and the face can be turned, clockwise or ccw, to the best position. Two: when the face is positioned at 90 degrees to your eyeballs, the image is very bright and easy to see. Three: the info doesn't bob back and forth waiting to settle--it comes up really fast.

The S-1: unfortunately the S-1, however, isn't so good. I own several of the NS tiny clip-ons, which this product, it appears to me, is basically imitating--and they (the NS) are better because you can position them in your line of sight much more easily than the S-1. There just isn't much flexibility with the S-1. In its favor, though, the image, again, very bright and fast.

Also the one I received has a major problem: the on/off switch is stuck, you can't push it on or off. You have to slide the battery tray open to turn it on, and to turn it off, just let time elapse until it turns off automatically.
So, I apparently got a lemon--can't imagine they're all like this. Not worth it to me to hassle with having it replaced, since I got the 2 tuners crazy cheap on Deal of the Day. In any case, it appears they have replaced the S-1 with a newer model; I haven't seen it but I would presume it's likely an improvement.

So I would recommend the SN-1 but not the S-1.
They won't process this review without a star rating--so OK,OK: the 5 stars are for the SN-1, but zero stars for the S-1.

I am happy I was able to get a extra snark SN-1 tuner because next to the built ins and my pedals on my board it is my favorite.
The new S1 or son of snark sold with it as a set is a real piece of work. If I owned Snark Tuner I would fire the person who OKed the design.
If a person does not have server neck problems as I already do they will if they try to use this tuner. I don't care how accurate it is and how small and compact and it is small enough it isn't really visible if you don't like the audience to see it. But you can not see it and it does not matter where you put it on the instrument. What a piece of wasted plastic. I said instrument not guitar because I tried it all all my 12 guitars 3 basses and two ukes and FAIL.
I used my loyalty points so it did not cost me or I would return it for my money back. No reflection on the Vendor but what a mistake by the manufacturer. Must be why it is offered as a package. I might still ask for my points back.

S1 angle problem

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Snark SN1 & S1 Prepack Tuner:

I have an angle solution. I cut the clip completely off. Looking at the tuner, I attach velcro on the right side edge. I put the corresponding velcro on the back of my headstock. Now it not only sits at the correct angle but it stays on in my gig bag. I have two of these modified tuners (as well as several other Snarks) and have velcro on the back of the headstocks of several guitars and basses.

Best tuner out there

Comments about Snark SN1 & S1 Prepack Tuner:

I really love this tuner. I bought them as part of a Stupid Deal of the Day promo - not sure I'd pay full price for a tuner. I also own the VOX clip on tuner (also bought as a SDOTD) and I like the Snark SN1 tuner. I find it's much more accurate and easier to use. It's also much easier to see. The snark s1 tuner was an added bonus, but is my least favorite of the 3. I find the screen hard to see and I don't like how it clips on the back of your guitar. If you want something hidden and out of the way it works, but I much prefer the ones that clip on the headstock.

Hoping these will go on sale again soon so I can snag a few more!

              The regular Snark round tuner is great. I have 2. Wanted to get my hands on the little square tuner thinking it would be more compact & could hide behind my acoustic headstock. I was right. I does hide there but it's nearly impossible to see because your hands get in the way of viewing it on a 3 per side acoustic headstock. It seems the design was for a 6 on a side headstock / electrics. Because the square is fixed, you can't move it into any angle other than where they have it. The round tuner works 100x better it being flexible. I was disappointed in the square tuner because the pictures made it look workable, but in actual practice, it's not for a 3 on a side headstock. You should use the round Snark tuner instead.

              Comments about Snark SN1 & S1 Prepack Tuner:

              I have 7 or 8 Snarks, TC Polytune Clip and other various clip on tuners from Korg and Fender. I like the Snark tuners the best. "The Son of Snark" works better on some head stock shapes than others, due to the angle. The same is true of the TC Polytune.

              I think the metallic red Snarks are the best of the bunch, it's the SN2 I think. They track faster and seem more accurate. Stay away from the "Super Tight" models, their display increments are larger and seem to be less accurate IMHO. They "Super Tight" models I have also seem to go through batteries faster. Bought this 2-pack on SDOTD at basically a BOGO free price.
