This is a great clip on tuner. It's the first I've bought, but have researched these for quite some time. The screen is clear, it turns from red to green when tuned, and the clip is reversible so you can have the tuner's face be in front of or behind the headstock. It feels the vibrations of what it's latched on to so it's great for a booty load of instruments. The other day at rehearsal I used it to tune a guitar, 4 string bass, tenor sax, alto sax, and trumpet with no trouble at all. It picked up the sound perfectly. This is a must have for any guitarist. Especially if you have a pedalboard. Save your money and space on your board by getting on of these bad boys. Not to knock any tuner pedals. I use a Boss TU=3 and it's great, but I would've saved a bit of cash had I known about this tuner. The clip has a little swivel action going for it that lets the tuner move around 360 degrees. Very cool and a must have. The only problem with it is the whole clip moves when you try to adjust the face of the tuner to where you can see it clearly unless you hold the clip before you start to move it. It's no big deal. I'd just kinda like the grip to be stronger so it doesn't happen. That said, the grip IS strong enough to prevent it from slipping off any instrument and it feels sturdier than the Planet Waves or Korg clip on tuners. Not only do I love you easy it is to use, but it looks cool too. You can adjust the tuner if 440 isn't your standard. It can go from 415 to 466. I'm glad I finally got this, but I'm sad it was after I spent $100 on that Boss tuner(which I still love.) By 7 of them today and you won't regret it. You can never have too many tuners.

This product is great after a fresh battery. Then it starts to flicker and freeze with all its LCD crystals showing all font images AT ONCE. So you try to turn off, but it wont unless you pull the battery out, But if the battery is weak, it will refreeze. LOL! You'll put in a new battery, it will be good for say, several hours of usage, then the flickering then the freeze. I must of put 10 batteries in before I chucked it. You can buy these for 2 buckaroos online, from China - that's about all it maybe worth. Buy a better one.

Works on a 5-String Bass

Comments about DeltaLab CT-10 Clip-On Tuner:

Having used only "normal" tuners all these years, this was my first clip on tuner. After discovering it was as accurate as my Korg cable plug-in tuner, it wasn't long before I started leaving the Korg in the gear bag and clipping on the Delta-tune. No plugging in cables, forgetting to turn up the guitar volume control, just clip on and tune: easy!! The Korg would sometimes give a funny reading on the B-string of my MusicMan 5. This Deltalab sometimes has a split-second delay reading the B-string, but it always works. Last week I bought a Snark all-instrument (the red one) tuner. It also works, but the Deltalab seems to work better, and its MUCH easier to see when you're in or out of tune because of the much brighter display. For the price you can't miss - great product!!

    Comments about DeltaLab CT-10 Clip-On Tuner:

    Very easy to use with the light changing to green when tuned. I'm not sure if it is as accurate as the Korg with the needle tuner (plus arrows, etc.) and have not checked it against any reference for accuracy, but it seems consistent. I haven't tried it on any of the solid body guitars I have, but it works well on the acoustic and should be fine on the electric.

    It doesn't stay in place as well as I would have liked, but also doesn't mar the surface of the headstock.

    I would recommend this one over the others of this type due to ease of use and value.

        First clip on I've had, works as it's supposed to, easy to use. It would be nicer if it had an option to adjust the tuning both up and down instead of just up and start back from the lower range once it reaches the highest range. I like it.

            Comments about DeltaLab CT-10 Clip-On Tuner:

            I always used an expensive in line chromatic tuner so I was a little skeptical of this inexpensive clip on. I purchased it at a local store as a doorbuster and paid a nominal price. Much to my surprise, the tuner works great. It clips to all of my bass guitars, ukulele and acoustic guitars. It is easy to read in low light situations on stage because it changes from red to green when in tune. It is very accurate when compared to my expensive in-line tuner. Now I wished that I had purchased several of these at the doorbuster price. I was later able to purchase two more at MF at a sale price so now I have a couple of back ups. I would highly recommend this tuner for its price, ease of use and accuracy.

                    Picks up low bass notes

                    Just be careful not to press the pitch adjust button instead of the on off button
                    If it happens youll have to reset it back to 440

                            I like the big display. Easy for old people (like me) to see. This would not be my go-to tuner, though. I've still got a pedal, and I like it. But on a gig, I'd put this one on my guitar, as a good backup.

                              Used for a total of maybe 6-hours over the course of several months. Tuning was never quite a perfect - E jumps to F to A back to E etc. Replaced battery, worked ok for a little while then same thing. New battery this morning and it's shot - garbage is flashing non-stop like the wristwatch on Predator. Junk

                                  Unit went bad 3 months after it was out of warranty. was used at home for practice and only two or three times a week. It should have lasted more then 15 months.
