Just small as good.


Nobody notice this one in my bass guitar and I like it.



I wouldn't recommend this tuner.


Has trouble with the e string.



Solid tuner, easy to see


Works great for me on all my instruments. Solid clip and easy to see display.



For the price there are better clip on tuners


It works as described but is a little hard to read sometimes



It's ok but there are better tuners


I like the small size but it is sensitive to placement on the headstock.



I could not recommend anything better.


So far these are the best tuners I have used. I like them because they are very non intrusive as they blend in to the instrument very discreetly. I also love how these have the option for different hz frequencies as I record at times in 432hz and use 440hz to play with other people generally.



Good stuff!


Such a cool product. I use it on my acoustic and I'd rather just go straight to the DI without having to have a tuning pedal. 10/10 would recommend.



Great tuner in a small package


Nice and small. Fits my ukulele perfectly. The display is clear and easy to read. Also very accurate.



great tuner for its size


for being small it hides well, but i find it difficult to tune guitars with longer scale lengths



This is the one you want


I did a lot of research on tuners, and this is the one I got to. I've had it for a few weeks now, and I love it! It's small, and clamps tight on my head-stock, so I pretty much leave it on my guitar, and because it's so low profile, it never snags on anything, and I can keep it on in the guitar case. I don't feel like it's in danger of falling off either. As far as how it works, it's spot on. You can dial it to pretty much whatever alternate tuning frequency you want. It's simple to use and the display is super easy to read even though it's small (plenty of contrast, and minimalist display). You can also rotate the display orientation in four directions, which is handy. I'm also a graphic designer, and I must say that I appreciate the design of the digital readout. That's probably half the reason I bought it. I will probably buy more of these as I collect more guitars.
