oh word? what's your brand?

i bought a brand called Snark (lol) on amazon just cuz it was cheap & i was skeptical and didn't want to spend too much, but there are probably better brands, but anyway this seems to work great though i'm worried it could break easily

yeah i just did a search for 'clip on tuner' and all the comments on the first article were all 'my snark broke'

cool idea tho, i take it it senses vibrations in the headstock?

It must, this does feel cheap it will probably break but it tunes great

I have the planet waves version. I've found that it's most accurate when I clip it on right next to the nut. However, it tends to slip off in that location, just due to the shape of my headstock. Still, it's nice to have, so I can times without being plugged into a pedal tuner.

So I can tune.

Didn't mention that when I clip it to the very top ofv my headstock, where there us a lot if good surface area for the thing to latch onto, the tuning feels like, a quarter - step off or something.

The snark stuff works fine - I've been using the cheapest one as a shop tuner for like 2 years now and it hasn't broken.

If you want to go fancy, buy an intellitouch, because they're the people that actually first brought this to market, and prob the best built of all of them. On the other hand, the snark is $14 so fuck it, if it lasts 2 years and breaks, just buy another one.

Snarks are cheap enough that I don't feel bad when I lose one.

I just changed the battery on my Snark and the surface of the whole thing was kind of gross.

Feel like it had some coating that started wearing off.
