    Great for guitar, not so much for bass.

    Comments about Snark S-5 Mini Guitar & Bass Tuner:

    I've been using this both for my Schecter guitar, and Ibanez 5-string bass.
    As of my guitar, it works excellently. It's nothing really spectacular, rather basic for a tuner, but it works quite well.
    As for bass, however... Pretty terrible. It really only recognizes the A, D, and G strings. It's very inaccurate when trying to tune the low-E string, and it's a complete pain trying to tune the low-B on my 5-string. Absolutely horrendous on that front, but you can't blame it too much, as that's a common problem with all clip-on tuners.

    In short, excellent for guitar, but, if you're playing bass, (Especially a 5-string) I'd recommend saving up for a pedal tuner.

      Bought this tuner at the suggestion of the associate. It is compact and accurate. My issue is trying to attach the clip with my big fingers, the gripping surface is smooth and hard to hold on to. My advice is play with it in the store and see if it works for you

      Comments about Snark S-5 Mini Guitar & Bass Tuner:

      I bought this tuner since it was on sale. The store associate told me that since the mini Snark has a set angle that's not adjustable, it might not work well with every guitar, but I bought it anyway and figured if it didn't work for me, I could always just return it.
      When I took it home and tried it on my Ibanez (strat-style), I could hardly see the screen at all. The letters and lines are nowhere near as clear as the picture suggests, and even when looking straight at the screen with it pointed directly at me it was difficult to make out what the letters were supposed to be. The entire screen lights up when you turn it on, enough that all the lines are slightly illuminated which makes it very hard to tell what's supposed to be lit up and what's not. I went back to the store the same day, returned the mini and bought the Super Snark 2 instead. This mini tuner would be great for people who don't mind a hard-to-read screen or if you're just using it at home where you can take the time to double check and make sure you're reading the screen properly, and it is a very accurate tuner. Since I play guitar on stage, I need to be able to see the screen and tune up quickly. The Super Snark 2 has a much better screen, plus it can swivel to face toward me, which was well worth the extra money for my needs. If you happen to have a guitar that can mount this tuner at the exact proper angle toward you, then this would be an excellent tuner to keep on your guitar all the time since it grips much better than the Super Snark. But based on the angle of the screen, I doubt there's a guitar in the world that this would fit perfectly on, except maybe a very thick body acoustic.

        Comments about Snark S-5 Mini Guitar & Bass Tuner:

        I got one of these a year ago for my guitar, and I don't regret it. The snark S-5 mini serves its purpose well and does what it should. I found it a little clunky if you are using it for an ukulele or maybe your guitar. It doesn't take up much space in your case or bag, or it can just stay on your instrument. My only regret is giving it to someone who needed it more. Oh well.

        Comments about Snark S-5 Mini Guitar & Bass Tuner:

        Planning on buying my second. I purchased one about a year ago and have used it on several guitars as well as a solid body and acoustic bass. It is as accurate as Snark's higher end models but I like it's compactness. Clipped atop your instrument facing the back side, it is out of sight to the audience but easily seen by the player (providing the stage light isn't too bright). Battery life expectancy so far has lasted longer than any other tuner I have. I find that a plus especially when I'm notorious of not having back ups. Bottom line, this is a great little tuner. Try one & see for yourself (especially if they are on sale.)
