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.

Great tuner

By Larry

from Towson, MD

Comments about Snark SN-1 Guitar & Bass Tuner:

I play mandolin, ukulele, guitars and bass. I keep a tuner in every case and in every room, so I have quite a few. This tuner works well on all of them, and is better on bass than any tuner I have ever used. With most tuners I have to use harmonics on bass to get the tuner to pick up tyhe vibration. The Snark picks up the fundamental open string well. I bought 3 of them, and I am buying 3 more to replace other tuners.

Visually superb

By Brett Cammack

from Daytona Beach, FL

Comments about Snark SN-1 Guitar & Bass Tuner:

Legibility is incredible and the response is silky smooth. I'm glad I procrastinated buying a tuner! I don't know if I'll use the built-in metronome, but it's clear and easy to configure. The capo-tuning feature is a neat trick. You can shift the thing a half-step up (up to four) to match capo placement, allowing you to tune "natural" even if capo'd to the fourth fret. Cool! I'm looking forward to using this for a long time. Bonus: readily available battery. CR2032

Snark-a-licious!!!!

By Nathan Stewart

from Newburgh, IN

Comments about Snark SN-1 Guitar & Bass Tuner:

This is by far one of the most accurate tuners I have ever used. I don't know what the One-Star rater is talking about as far as breaking, it's made with snap-and-lock technology!!! Fabulous!!! The metronome function is supremely useful for BPM tracking and practicing. Reach into your wallet and buy one today. YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPPOINTED!!!!

Broke in less than a week!

By Jake

Comments about Snark SN-1 Guitar & Bass Tuner:

The plastic bracket broke when I was just adjusting it. Cheap junk. The accuracy didn't seem so good anyway - I think I could tune just as good with my ear. The color display was nice though.

THE BEST TUNER IN THE WORLD

By Javier

from Chicago

Comments about Snark SN-1 Guitar & Bass Tuner:

I received this tuner for Christmas and was amazed by how accurately it tuned my guitar. It even helps me tune it through the vibrations of the wood on my guitar it is AMAZING! No matter what other noise is around the tuner doesn't pick it up. This is when it utilizes its ability to tune it by the vibrations of the strings. In Addition to that the color screen is AWESOME!!

    Not for my 5 string bass

    By Andreas

    from Salt Lake City, Utah

    Comments about Snark SN-1 Guitar & Bass Tuner:

    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.

      Have only had the Snark for a couple of weeks. So far, I am very impressed with the easy use of the tuner.
      For an old school player, used to having to plug in tuners, this thing works great!

      The salesperson at the store (Guitar Center) told me the shaft was a little on the delicate side. Once you set the angle for viewing, leave it. I swear you will never want or need another tuner. AWESOME!

        I'm new to guitars so this was a must for me, the Snark tuner is very easy to use and is very practical. The display is bright and accurate, the clip on holds on to the guitar nicely and the tuning itself is simple and quick. There's a lot of other features that I'm yet to learn to use like the metronome and such, but so far I'm satisfied and can't think of one thing to prevent this little gadget to last a long time if taken good care of. Great for beginners who are on a budget.

        Don't waste your money

        By Mike Kalend

        from Lodi, CA

        Comments about Snark SN-1 Guitar & Bass Tuner:

        I am very disappointed with this tuner. It is very accurate. However, the cheap plastic swivel joint broke within two weeks. I glued it back together with plastic glue. The rubber foot pad fell off and disappeared. Its display is not bright enough in most cases. Now, after two months, it won't pick up my guitars notes. It doesn't work! Don't waste your money on this item.

        Comments about Snark SN-1 Guitar & Bass Tuner:

        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.......

        Don't loan me your Snark

        By art

        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..
