own 4 other clip on tuners but none match this one in two regards - first ergonomics - the clip mechanism has a "pivoting" stability feature in the bottom portion of the clip which allows for easy mounting on thicker headstocks - as to accuracy it makes the others I own seem crude in their ability to provide tuning accuracy - while the peterson doesn't "light up" in a brilliant color splash it's more than bright enough to use in daylight and the accuracy it provides is vastly superior to my other units (using it for standard and regularly for DADGAD as well)

I have Petersons stomp box tuner and it works great for me. I only play electric guitars and its sweetened turnings were a godsend since they always led me to chords which always sounded in tune. I wanted a more portable solution so tried this clip-on. I made sure it was on sweetened tuning for guitar, just like my stomp but it seemed equally indecisive or temperamental across all my guitars and I couldn't get the same end result that I could with their stomp version. Maybe it works better with acoustic instruments but I couldn't get it to work for my electric needs. Peace be with you.

The greatest and most accurate clip-on tuner on the market.

By peter andreev

from Philadelphia, PA

Comments about Peterson StroboClip SC-1 Clip-On Strobe Tuner:

I've always been a fan of clip on tuners because of the convenience and the ability to tune in noisy environments. I had been using the Intellitouch PT10 and PT20 for a long time. While they are pretty good tuners, I quickly noticed that there was a pretty wide range of pitch, relatively speaking, that the tuner would indicate as being in tune. This is unacceptable if you ask me. Another thing that people fail to realize about those tuners is that the distance between 0 ( in tune) and +20 cents is only 3 or 4 notches in the LED display, so you could be anywhere from +1 to about +7 cents out of tune and it will read the same. Bottom line - I wanted a dead accurate tuner. Peterson strobe tuners have always been the top of the line go-to tuner. You always find them on the benches of the best techs in the world. Their version of the clip on, the StroboClip, hold the same high standard for accurate tuning. The StroboClip is accurate within 1/10 of a cent. Now that's what I call accuracy. You can adjust relative pitch from 440 and also change key/capo compensation if needed, but the biggest feature is what they call Sweetened Tuning presets, which is basically a preset that you set to whatever instrument you're tuning in attempt to make it even more accurate. Really the only bad thing about this tuner is the price tag. Peterson has always been pricey and somewhat rightfully so, but I wish it was maybe 20% cheaper. Even so, I'm happy with paying for such an accurate tuner. If you want to be confident that you're always perfectly in tune, spend the extra money on this tuner.

    Comments about Peterson StroboClip SC-1 Clip-On Strobe Tuner:

    I purchased my Strobclip when they first came out a few years ago. It works great and have put several hours on it in all settings. Recently the clip mount developed a crack next to the screw mount. I called Peterson to see if I could purchase a new part and they sent me a replacement part at no cost. You might pay a little more but it's a quality tuner from a USA company with service support. THANKS PETERSON

    First class, professional quality tuner.

    By Matthew Ackerman

    from San Jose, CA

    Comments about Peterson StroboClip SC-1 Clip-On Strobe Tuner:

    If you have an electric guitar and are planing on doing any intonation work you basically need to have this or any of it's higher priced cousins. Most tuners are not accurate enough to adjust your bridge saddles. In fact my XXXX brand tuner would not even show out of tune if I flexed the neck. After spending some time with this and getting my guitars setup correctly the difference is astounding. It takes a light touch to get your instrument into tune with this thing. It is very sensitive and very accurate. It works on the vibrations inside your instrument so I am assuming it would also work well in a noisy environment. It has no problems picking up even very light finger picking. This little tuner is first rate. It is very nice looking with a chrome kind of finish. It's about the size of three AA batteries. It comes with a very nice tin to store it as well. It has a bright back light that turns off to save battery. The variety of 'sweetened' tunings is also very neat. Really fixed the chord sounds on my acoustic and my electric guitars. For a clip on tuner this is really as good as it gets. Its a little more expensive than some other options but it is really worth it. It has saved me tons of frustration getting my guitars setup correctly with other low cost tuners.

    Very Average IMO

    By Robert

    from Stationed at KAF Afghanistan

    Comments about Peterson StroboClip SC-1 Clip-On Strobe Tuner:

    Bottom line upfront: It works about as good as the onboard tuner of the guitar. Cons, the advertisement's quote, "Smallest multi-temperament tuner" ... more like the smallest temperamental turner. Doesn�ۡ���t hold the G string�ۡ���s frequency very well, meaning the display jumps a lot. The strobe is a great way of tuning, but I really wonder if this is more of a gimmick than an actual strobe tuner ... but what do I know I�ۡ���ve only been a musician since 1971.

    Great Tuner, glad I got it

    By BRUCE SMITH

    from Santee, Ca

    Comments about Peterson StroboClip SC-1 Clip-On Strobe Tuner:

    Let's set the groundwork, this tuner is a clip on (read this as a tuner you need no cords for that will isolate the sound you are trying to tune with minimal problem if not at a rock concert) that allows you the ability to tune to within .001 (.1 cent) of the test tone. Most tuners out there save one or two are between 1/5 and i/10 as accurate (with them tuning to .5 to 1 cent). This wouldn't make a real difference if playing solo, but if there are more than one instrument playing you could be off sufficiently to be readily noticed. This unit comes in a metal protective case as well and is about all you could want or hope for over all.

    Comments about Peterson StroboClip SC-1 Clip-On Strobe Tuner:

    First let me say that the service from Guitar Center is "Top Shelf" in my opinion. No hassles making the order and delivery was prompt. This was my first Peterson tuner and all I can say is that it's incredible! I knew there was something not right with my Epiphone EL-00 and it wasn't the guitar. The tuner I had was nice but the tuning wasn't spot on. It is now though *S*. Thanks Peterson and thank you Guitar Center staff. Keep doin' what you do!!

    Fabulous Clip-on Tuner

    By Robert McAuley

    from Sammamish, WA

    Comments about Peterson StroboClip SC-1 Clip-On Strobe Tuner:

    I own a Peterson StroboFlip that lives in my home studio and I finally got tired of unplugging it and packing it up in my acoustic case (a very tight squeeze) whenever I take my instrument somewhere. I almost went for a cheapo tuner, but decided to splurge a little since I really like my StroboFlip and this clip-on has all the great sweeteners the flip does (I have 6 and 12 string acoustics and a violin), not to mention spot-on accuracy. Not sure what the reviewer was talking about that said it jumps around on the G string - this thing is rock solid stable, easy to read, and works best for me if I pick with my thumb and not a plectrum. Worth the extra money to me. And it comes in a nice, handy-dandy little metal case - well packaged indeed.

    Best of the Clip-ons, and it's a Peterson too!

    By stew simon

    from Detroit MI

    Comments about Peterson StroboClip SC-1 Clip-On Strobe Tuner:

    This is the best clip-on tuner that I've ever used! I'm a Guitar Tech @ GC, and I've tried many of the clip-on tuners to tune acoustics in a noisy environment. And as a tech, I'm so used to strobe tuning...it's far more accurate and easy to use. Plus with all the sweetened temperaments, you can really dial in perfect tuning for a variety of instruments. It's takes a little positioning trial & error to find the best spot where to put it on the headstock sometimes, so experiment a little.
