My first one has been working reliably for 3 years, so I'm getting another couple just as backups..why? Well, because they're so small (have to be) and I'm sure I have been lucky to not lose it! And other guitar players in my band keep borrowing it and don't remember to give it back.. Our band plays in natural tuning (432hz) and not every tuner offers that.. and it remembers that setting when turned off so I don't have to go searching.. The only thing is on one of my guitars that I use the tuner's clips barely get under the strings so I wish they were thinner.. other than that, it's fine.

I bought this tuner on the advice of a Guitar Center employee. It worked well for a while but then started crapping out on me. One minute, it's working great, the next it's gone into a different mode, whether the tuning is reading A441 or the flat symbol is lit. All of this during a gig. Keep in mind, the only button I have hit is the on/off button. The problem is when I turn this tuner on and it's in one of these modes, I'm only looking at the tuner, I'm not paying much attention to the small icons below. This is down dime between songs and I HATE downtime between songs at a gig. I do have another tuner on my pedal board but may not be at my pedal board, that's why I keep this clipped on. I've had this tuner for a while and if it continues to be an issue I guess I'll pick up a snark. $11 on Amazon Prime.

    only one complaint, but it's enough for me to ditch this tuner. The battery dies after minimal use. It's as if the machine draws power even when it's off.

    Comments about Deltalab CT-30 Clip-On Tuner:

    I bought it at Guitar Center. As others have described, very good initially, with accurate indications and bright screen and good battery life. Then... after a few months, it lit up every symbol on the screen. Turning it OFF and back ON solved the problem for a while until it failed permanently with all elements on the screen stuck ON. Not cool for the price. I would not recommend it.

    When it works it is fine

    By MARK ARCHAMBAULT

    from Boston, MA

    Comments about Deltalab CT-30 Clip-On Tuner:

    I bought this tuner a less than a year ago and it has been inconsistent at best. When the tuner works, it is very nice. However, occasionally the on button sticks, lighting up the whole screen rendering it useless. I would take the battery out and that seemed to fix it sometimes but it got worse over time. The final straw was the arm support snapped off. I can not recommend this product.

    Clip broke

    By ERIC

    from Detroit, MI

    Comments about Deltalab CT-30 Clip-On Tuner:

    The clip snapped off after about three months of very light use at home. I will say that GC was very generous about exchanging it (long after the 30-day warranty expired). I'm in the market for a new one and I will definitely NOT consider this brand again.

    Comments about Deltalab CT-30 Clip-On Tuner:

    Bought this 2 years ago. Hadn't used it for the last year. Was just sitting on top of my stack. Go to pick it up and it was in 2 pieces. The clothes pin clip was sooooooo delicately designed and the spring way stronger, the two tiny flecks of material around the pivot pin gave up. If the designer would of added 1/100 of a penny's worth of plastic more to the design, I would have given 4 stars. To add insult to injury, the battery was dead too. I barely used it when I did and had replaced the battery shortly after I bought it. I will be shopping for a new one. It will be a different brand.

          Comments about Deltalab CT-30 Clip-On Tuner:

          I don't know if i dodged a bullet here considering all the negative reviews i've seen of this tuner, but mine is fantastic. After a year of moderate-to-weekly gigs (plus practicing), this tuner works great for me. I also have the most basic Snark SN-1 tuner as a backup, and this Delta Labs tuner kills the snark. The snark frequently has trouble finding and keeping the note, but the CT-30 is more accurate, grabs the note faster and even works on the B string on my 5 string bass. Maybe i got a 'reverse lemon', but this tuner has been great for me. The only issue i'm having is the screen is getting a bit dim now, but that probably just means new battery time.

          Recommended by employee. It worked great at first, the it seemed as it was off. Compared it to my phone tuner app. Didn't know which one to trust. They were sometimes close. Then the clip broke. The tuner works but can't clip it. They don't sell a replacement part. Would be easy to replace. I'm trying to use a binder clip to keep it on. Got to get something else.

          I was a little skeptical at first, but this tiny device does everything my phone app and old tuner did. Only problem was I dropped it and my dog chomped on it in the time it took me to bend over and pick it up, and now it's completely broken. Message: keep it away from your dog.

          Used once and then started having issues. Thought the battery was going bad so I replaced it as I could barely see the display. Replacing battery didn't make a difference. Applying pressure to display does make it work, but defeats the purpose. Poor quality...

          CT30 clip-on tuner not as good as the CT10

          By ron flory

          from huntsville, al

          Comments about Deltalab CT-30 Clip-On Tuner:

          I recently bought a CT30 tuner as a spare and find that its not as sensitive as their CT10 model. Most of the time this CT30 wont even recognize the high-G string of my banjo, at any volume. I find the flat/sharp tuning indication to be inconsistent with the CT30, but very accurate and consistent on the CT10. I spoke with a salesperson at the local guitar store, and he said several other people had reported similar problems with the CT30.

          Three Problems

          By WILLIAM

          from San Diego, CA

          Comments about Deltalab CT-30 Clip-On Tuner:

          I usually do not write reviews, but having had three problems, I made an exception for this product. I purchased the tuner about six months ago at Guitar Center. When I told the sales person that I need a clip-on tuner, he recommended this one because he said it was the best one they had in the store. Problem 1: About three months ago while I was playing my guitar, the tuner simply catapulted from the head of the guitar. Upon retrieving it I noticed that one of tabs on the clip section simply became detached. When I examined the tab more closely, I noticed that the plastic material was soft and crumbling. When I returned the tuner to the Guitar Center, the sales person was somewhat reluctant to replace it, likely concluding that I may have possibly abused it, but eventually replaced it. Problem 2: As I recall, even when the original unit was new, it was slow to respond to low E. Recently, with the replacement unit I noticed that I really have to pluck the low E quite hard to get the tuner to respond. As a matter of reference, I would estimate that I now have to pluck the low E about three to four times as hard as the other strings. Problem 3: Recently I also noticed that the swivel on the clip section was getting loose and that it would barely hold the display section in place without turning. Fortunately, I was able to detach the rubber pad sufficiently to access the retaining screw and tighten it slightly. Regarding my rating, considering (1) that this tuner cost $29.99, (2) that I recently I purchased a new Snark SN-5 tuner for $11.71, (3) that the Snark matches the performance side by side, and (4) that the Snark exceeds the performance on the low E string, it appears that either I have a defective unit or that there may be better tuners for the money. However, the Delta Lab CT-30 does have the metronome feature that the Snark SN-5 does not, so my cost comparison is not entirely accurate considering the difference in features.

              Today I went to my local guitar center after finishing jazz practice for the day. While picking up a bass guitar I also bought this tuner. But when I got home I found that the tuner was missing it's battery. I'm probably going to return it and get the same thing made by Fender for 20 dollars less.
