The Snark SN-1 Guitar & Bass Tuner makes tuning a breeze, thanks to a versatile design that includes a high-sensitive vibration sensor plus a sturdy clip that can go onto either the front or back of the headstock so it can be used by both left- and right-handed musicians. Adding to its ease of use is its full-color display that can be rotated 360° so it gives you even more visibility when you need it most. The SN-1 also offers you flat tuning and transpose options for down-tuning and capo situations, plus pitch calibration.

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 like the way these work. That said, I have returned mine, broken, to the store after less than an hour of use. The arm mechanism fits into a socket that is fragile plastic and broke the first time it was put back into the box. That's really not good for a small part that's going to spend a lot of time bouncing around in guitar cases. When I stopped in at the local GC store, I was told that this was something they have heard of a bunch of times, so it seems there's a design improvement to be made here. Too bad, because the red version with the microphone input as well has great features. I think I'll try the DeltaFX CT-30 in spite of the lack of a microphone input option since it appears to be better built. I would have bought the DeltaFX in the first place, but it was only available in-store at that time. I'd buy a Snark again, though probably the red one, if they can get the mounting issues resolved.

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.
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..
Had a Delta Lab tuner, and the plastic clip broke. I liked the technology, so I found the Snark Guitar and Bass tuner on sale, it looked ok, when I received it and tried it for the first time, and I could see the difference right away the first time I used it. The Snark for me, is more accurate, and I was pleasantly surprised after using it. I highly recommend the Snark Guitar and Bass tuner! Great product! Also like the blue color.......
I had it for a couple of years (love this tuner) and when I went to replace the battery it broke at the swivel joint. I will order another and be more careful now that I am aware of this design flaw...
My friends kept recommending SNARKs to me so I got one. I'm sure it's a fine guitar tuner and may even be OK for a standard 4 string bass. It didn't like to tune my low B string at all. The display would become erratic and unreliable. Then, it couldn't decide if I was trying to tune my G string or my C string or it thought my D string was my F# string - ??? There were just a lot of bizarre, unreliable display issues. I took it back and got a trusty KORG GA-1 which doesn't clip-on but at least it works right every time! No SNARK for me - YMMV.
This a decent tuner. It's quick and it's accurate. The swivel joint is weak so be careful when tweaking it. Mine is still intact and working after 6 months of moderate use.
The Snark SN-1 is definitely the strongest clip-on tuner you can buy for the money. It's solidly built, has a bright screen and is easy to maneuver so you can read it. I've written more reasons why I love this tuner in this Snark Tuner Review: http://musicmunch.com/2014/03/snark-tuner-review/
Bad eyes, drinking, lost your glasses... Its cool man, the screen is crazy easy to read, its very bright. The metronome blinking is usable, I love this tuner.
Spot on tuning on guitar and uke for about a year and then it stopped picking up any vibrations. Screen comes on and all functions work except tuning.
While the tuner works very well, the design has some flaws. With little effort, the flaps that surround the ball joint are prone to break off quite easily, thus rendering the joint incapable of holding the entire mechanism together. 2 out of the last 3 that I have purchased have broken at these joints. Even still, the joint can be taped back together and the tuner still be functional. Guitar Center has been good to replace the broken ones, but the flaw remains.
