This thing solves most of the problems I have with other tuners. 1.) It clips onto the head stock and doesn't get lost or left behind. 2.) You don't have to look away when moving to the next string to be tuned. 3.) You don't have to leave the room to tune, it works from the vibrations from the guitar not a mic. 4.) because it lights up you can see it. 5.) You don't have to search around to find a way to make it stand up and be visible it swivles any which way.

I bought this to go along with a new les paul that I picked up. Upon taking it out of the box I read the disclaimer pamphlet stating not to use it on any Gibson products because it could leave permanent damage to the headstock . I feel this should be stated on the box, now i'm out $13 and still have to go find another tuner. I did use it on an acoustic I have sitting around and it worked as advertised, but if you have a gibson brand guitar or one with a nitrocellulose lacquer, polyurethane, french polish, or oil finish do not buy this or you will risk permanent damage to your guitar. I feel forced to give this tuner a 1 star rating simply because this disclaimer is not clearly printed anywhere in the description on the guitar center website or on the box itself.

      Comments about Snark SN-1 Guitar & Bass Tuner:

      Only been using the tuner for two weeks, but it seems to work just fine and it is reading accurately. I really only bought the Snark for the tuner at this time and haven't used any other features. I picked the blue color because it was significantly cheaper than the black Snark.

      Comments about Snark SN-1 Guitar & Bass Tuner:

      It's about as good as you can expect for a clip on tuner. My only gripes are that it only mentions that it may damage certain finished in the manual, no where in the description online, and that the black color option is nearly twice as much as the blue. Definitely only use for bedroom practice, it doesn't seem reliable enough for performaning. My advice would be to invest in a good tuning pedal, I have the Boss TU-3 and its great, albeit $99.

          Comments about Snark SN-1 Guitar & Bass Tuner:

          This is by far the best tuner I've ever bought, since it doesn't requieres to be plugged to your guitar due to it senses the vibration of the strings. Is very easy to use and you can tune your guitar in whatever tunning you want and also has a metronome function.

          I thought it was going to be a littlebit smaller but it can fit very well in any headstock, so you can leave it there and retune after a song on stage, you low your instrument volume and the audience won't hear that you are tunning again.

              Comments about Snark SN-1 Guitar & Bass Tuner:

              I haven't had this very long. I needed to replace a tuner that wasn't working well. It was one that tuned by sound. This one works by vibration and does a great job so far. I have heard some people have had problems with the swivel head part breaking so I have been careful with it. I store it in a save place and take extra care when traveling. If I find that I have any problems with it I will write another review.

              Don't loan me your Snark

              By 

              from Wahoo, NE

              Comments about Snark SN-1 Guitar & Bass Tuner:

              The ball and socket connection on the one and only Snark I owned broke the first time I used it. I carefully repaired it with JB Weld epoxy--stuff that is so strong I've seen it hold together a tractor carburetor for decades. THe Snark broke at another place. I fixed that one, but the third time I got a Korg Pitchclip and never looked back. Last week, I left mine at home. A friend loaned me his Snark. I broke it putting it on my guitar. Maybe it's me, but if you've ever had to reach for something slap it on and use it in a hurry, get something sturdier..
