I usually perform with one of my TC Electronic heads that have a built in tuner but every now and then I do break out my GK MB500 and NEO410 and that is when I use my Snark but I have a lot of trouble tuning on a loud stage. The Snark is very slow and gets confused with other sounds. I was about to purchase the TCE Polytune when I read about the Polytune Clip. The clip is awesome. At first it would get a little lost but after I switched it to bass mode, no more problems. It is fast and accurate even when down tuning to C on a loud stage, no problem at all. For those saying that you can't tune more that one peg at a time, come on guys, that is for guitarist's to be able to see right away which string is out of tune and adjust it immediately and then fine tune it later chromatically, lol. This is easily the best clip on tuner I have ever used. Now even when I use my TCE heads, I still pull out the Clip just to hear peoples comments on how nice it is.

I WANTED to like this tuner... but I just can't. Got it for a Christmas present, and given that I could get FIVE Snark tuners for the same price, it's just not a good value.

The electronics in there must be impressive, because tuning all 6 strings simultaneously is a tough task, and it does work, although there is some wavering. But how many tuning pegs can you turn at once? Only one. As long as the tuner keeps pace with my hands, one string at a time, it's fast enough.

I also have to agree with the reviewer who reported different readings in single string mode vs poly mode. Sometimes a string will read "perfect" in polytune mode, but if you check that string in single mode, it's off. The Polytune Clip is also easily confused by loud sounds, which is a deal breaker on stage.

Sleek? Yes. Clever? Very. Reliable? Not so much. Overpriced? I'm afraid so. This tuner will stay at home, while the Snark goes to gigs.

                      Use this mainly on acoustic guitar, but it works on electrics as well. Occasionally it gets confused whether to read in polytune or single-string mode, especially on low-E. But you can go through the other 5 strings and when returning to low-E it registers single-string. Like other reviewers have noted for this and the pedal version, the polytune mode isn't super accurate, it just gives a quick indication. You need to check each string individually. (Which is not really grounds for knocking the product, as it's not really a huge expectation or requirement.) Allows +/-5Hz on reference pitch (435 - 445 Hz).

                          Great tuner, probably the most accurate of the 4 that I own. Excellent for setup/intonating a guitar. The only improvement I can think of is lightweight metal alloy housing instead of plastic.
