It's a Peterson so what more can I say? Its extremely accurate, durable, easy to read and the tuning "sweeteners" really fine tune it for whatever instrument you need to tune. All the issues of small buttons and small clamps have been addressed and I have used this on a dark stage with several different basses and never once worried that it might fall off or had to fuss with it to turn it on or off. I had bought cheaper tuners for years because I just didn't want to spend the money on a Peterson (and most of those other tuners died for one reason or another in just a few years or in some cases, months) so I was delighted when I found one that was affordable and now that I'm spoiled I'll never buy anything else. My only complaint is that it takes a button cell battery instead of a AAA but I can live with that. If you want the best tuner on the market then look no further cause you have just found it!

I was very disappointed with Peterson's latest clip-on tuner. I've owned one of the original models for years and it's great; easy to use and very accurate. The new HD model is the exact opposite. The way the controls are set atop the main body, the combo menu/power switch is set between the + / - input controls, if you don't press that button precisely when turning the tuner off, you will instantly change your selected setting. I liked the original better where there was a separate power button set on the opposite side of the unit. Also the unit is terrible at tracking in and locking on strings during tuning.

Bottom line, find one of the original models and get it instead.

        Comments about Peterson StroboClip HD Clip-On Tuner:

        I am a guitar tech and a musician, so I use a tuner more than most. Peterson tuners are by far the best tuners on the market. The clip-on version is very easy to read and extremely accurate. I have used all the other brand-X's and if you want ease of use and readability, get the Peterson.

          Comments about Peterson StroboClip HD Clip-On Tuner:

          This iteration of the clip-on tuner comes without the nice metal box that protected previous models. However, the tuner's accuracy and ability to 'sweeten' a guitar are unchanged. Overall, worth the higher cost when compared to cheaper tuners.

          Should also mention it is very easy and intuitive to use.

                  Tune fast, tune accurately. My band covers tunes that require capos, 12-strings, drop tuning. It's a clip-on tuner's nightmare. I have several other brands.

                  Most of my tuners are name brand, and work very well most of the time. But now and then, it might be on my 12-string, it might be on a certain string on a certain guitar, it might be capo'd, or drop-tuning, my other tuners just can't find that note. Mostly can. But too often fail on one note. Frustrating. Peterson never fails. (I have the stop version too.)

                  The Peterson cuts through the harmonic fog and sees the note clearly every time. Is that worth paying the price of two cheaper tuners. Yeah. It is. It's easy to use. One of my bands tunes down 1/2 step. It's easy to set the tuner to read an Eb as E, Ab as A, and so on.

                        More accurate than most tuners, better display than most strobe type tuners. More straightforward than its floor pedal brother, which is very good but is large and has extra features that you may not need. For floor tuner pedals I like the Sonic Research ST-300 Turbo Tuner or the Peterson VSS-C StroboStomp, but if not using pedals this is as accurate as you can get. The button control is also easier to use than a lot of multi-function clip-ons. It uses the same battery as most of the other clip-ons.

                            Works on acoustic guitars, mandolins, electric guitars. Hides nicely behind Tele headstock. Adjust your bridge saddles and intonation on your electric guitars with incredible accuracy. Remember, you get what you pay for- no one wants to play with someone who is "out of tune." At least I don't... Play On!!!

                                  As a longtime Peterson user, one left more than a little disappointed by the StroboClip V1, I had high hopes that the new HD version would capture some of the classic Peterson mojo. That mojo may be in there, but good luck finding it. From the difficult to open battery compartment to the inexcusably small font of the scant instructions included, the HD fails to deliver anything but frustration.
