I was mesmerized by the claims that the new Snark is even more accurate than the older models. There are many models of Snark, so it's becoming more difficult to choose or differentiate among them. After using an earlier blue model, this one did not give the impression of precision measurement, especially with the coarseness of its measurement lines. I am not convinced. My previous, blue Snark has served well when I don't want to take the time to use a more precise but more fiddly tuner.

The jury is out, but leaning in favor of the older technology. Perhaps speed would weight in favor of this black Snark, but my results were not impressive.

    Not to be used with most guitars!

      Best Uses

        Comments about Super Snark 2 Clip-On Tuner:

        The user manual says:

        "SNARK advises NOT to use its tuner with any instruments having these types of finishes: Nitrocellulose Lacquer, Polyurethane, French Polish, Oil Finish or Gibson® guitars which have nitrocellu- lose finishes unless you accept the risk of dents to the headstock. We recommend using the Snark SN- 10 pedal tuner instead of the Snark clip on tuners for these guitars and finishes."

        I do not know of any guitar on which this can be used!

                    This is a nice improvement over the original SNARK, which is a great tuner. This has a brighter display and it is easier to see when the string in in tune. My whole band uses them and we are always in tune.

                      I have collected tuners for forty two years. I may have had over thirty of them. During the recent Hurricane Harvey flood in my area, I lost them all. I am replacing only the ones I liked the most. The Turbotuner, and the Snark. The Turbotuner, hands down, is the very best there is; I have had them all. BUT, the Snark is a GREAT unit to have on hand as well. It too is quite accurate, easy to use, and affordable.

                          It works nicely for standard tuning and is easily visible. But I was surprised to see that unlike other inexpensive clip-ons it does not remember your pitch setting if you have set it to a nonstandard pitch like A415. For A415 that means every time you use it you'll need to go into pitch setting mode and then press the "down" button 25 times. That's awkward and doesn't have to be this way. Of course, for A415 you could just think: when it says Ab that's really my A, etc. but that won't work for other nonstandard settings.

                                      The super snark is no different than the snark. Just the price. Both good tuners. But if you need 100% accuracy I would suggest a higher quality tuner. These snark tuners are perfect while you are playing and something sounds a little off.

                                        I bought this product, used it for about a month, and the rubber thing that holds it to the guitar broke off. It is a good product but flimsy. Guitar Center wouldn't give me my money back, so I had to buy another clip on tuner which works great and is good quality.

                                              I've had 3 Snarks--love 'em, and I had had to replace 'em because they seem to disappear at the bars if left unattended, so someone else likes 'em too

                                                I bought this tuner to be used with a newly purchased Harpsicle Harp, which has to be tuned every day for the first couple of weeks to hold its tune. I love this tuner because it can be easily clipped onto the harp while I was tuning. The screen is bright and easy to read the note and its tone accuracy. It picks up the sound easily and quickly. It made tuning my harp a breeze. I would highly recommend this to anyone who needs to tune a string instrument!

                                                What a waste of a good idea! These things work well, can pick up any note, and have the option of adjusting the pitch so you can tune to a piano (for example) that isn't precisely at 440 for A.

                                                For all that potential, Snark has made horrible choices in construction and refinement. The clip snaps onto the business end of the tuner via a post (see attached picture) with two round ends. The clips into which this snaps are permanent parts of the clip and tuner, so once they crack -- and they will -- it is time to save the battery and toss out the rest while you find a replacement. I returned mine for a refund, since cracks already had appeared when it first arrived. Once the tuner is not attaced to the clip it becomes a paperweight, and not a very big one.

                                                I also was disappointed that Snark has chosen to make its display worse. The original display filled the screen with small increments that made it easy to read at a glance, and stable. If you buy one now, you'll get a screen that has fewer, large increments and more "dancing" to get in tune. Very disappointing to see a company take a good product and make it worse.
