Best offering yet for strobe fans
Paul926, 21.06.2018
A strobe tuner does not decide for you. There's no big green light when you're 'there'. But in reality you're never 'there'. A resonating string changes pitch over time, starting with a rise, and falling afterwards. A strobe just keeps on measuring, you have to decide for yourself when it's right. Not for the faint hearted. You need to be a bit critical about tuning to begin with. A bit of knowledge about strings, tunings, and inherent weaknesses of stringed instruments will make you understand and love this tuner better. You're there when the strobe can't decide which way to wiggle: left or right. At the moment I'm experimenting with a tuning that shows a slight pitch rise at the transient of the note, as the plucking action stretches the string a little. Time will tell if this works best for me. This tuner contains many 'sweetened' presets for all kinds of instruments. It pays off to try them, no guitar or uke is the same. My uke reacts well to the sweetened uke preset. For my brand new Taylor the eq(ual temperament) preset works best (which is a compliment to that guitar's intonation). When you first try 'sweetened ac gtr' you see the differences: some open strings are tuned slightly lower (presumably to counteract lower position 'sharpness'). This tuner contains software that remembers your settings, a piece of automation I have not encountered yet in a clip tuner. For every tuning mode it remembers your absolute pitch and capo or drop setting. The 'concert a' can be set as low as 390hz, which will suit early music devotees. The previous stroboclip had a 'sustain' setting (for instruments with very short tone duration), this setting is omitted here, to me it looks like it is permanently on. My only gripe: on my (early) sample the clip does not open wide enough for classical headstocks, so I deduct one star. It seems they have corrected this, as their website shows it clipped to a fat plank. This tuner is a great little instrument, capable of great precision. You can't really fault it IMO, so lots of stars, but it is not the no brainer tuning solution for the masses.

Best small tuner
guitarplayer123, 29.06.2020
This is a really nice tuner with a lot of great features. The different tuning profiles are very useful and it is a very nice size to fit most stringed instruments both acoustic and electric, e.g mandolin, ukulele, guitar, bass. I have used it on acoustic and electric guitars.

Overview: The display is clear and the interface allows a very exact method of achieving correct pitch. This is in contrast to the usual digital tuners which can be annoying to use. I've used ones in the past where there is a long delay between sound input and the displayed pitch and also ones that really only tune approximately to a true pitch. This tuner is better than any I have used previously, and allows you to get very precise tunings.

Pro: When you are tuning the display interface feels like it is in real time, making tuning very fast. The screen is bright and clear. The tuner is small and easy to use discretely in a live setup. Pre-programmed tunings makes tuning live to different open tunings very easy. If you are playing with other people this tuner easy to share between acoustic and electric instruments.

Con: It's expensive. The font of the letters used is a bit too stylised to me, but the letters are easy to interpret. The screen is small so it will be harder to see for people with poor sight, but this is because it is supposed to be a small unobtrusive tuner. The arm that attaches the tuner to the fixing point feels a little brittle. It would be nice if it was more manoeuvrable, but I assume they limited the motion to ensure vibration gets to the electronics.

Conclusion: This is the best tuner I have used. It may be over the top for most casual players, but if you are frustrated with cheaper tuners this one will not disappoint. There are conflicting opinions on whether such accurate tuners are necessary. In my opinion it really depends on who you are playing with and whether you need/want a very close tuning. Another factor is speed. A responsive tuner like this one lets you tune up fast, which is really nice when playing with other people or live.

For me the interface with this tuner is what sets it apart. You are tuning in what feels like real time and it is more like tuning to a tuning fork than an electronic tuner. I am very happy with it and definitely recommend it.

All you need in one place!
Mutants, 19.04.2020
Hey,

I use this for my acoustic, electric guitar and mandolin!
One of the most expensive clip tuners, but I really like to buy things that last for many years and don't have to worry about things I miss in cheaper products.
The clip is great, rubber doesn't scratch guitar neck, it's very comfortable, it's actually quite small, you can adjust it in any angle for your comfort, display is great in low and high lightning.
I had to take some time to get used to catch the sweet spot of tune,but not an issue really.
So yeah, it's really worth every penny and does it job excellent!

11/10 would recommend!
