High-Visibility LCD
The Samson CT17 offers a flip-and-spin design that ensures the LCD display window can be easily viewed from nearly any angle. Bright color backlighting allows the CT17 display to remain clearly visible under any lighting conditions. When tuning, the note name is displayed, along with markers indicating up to 50 cents sharp or flat. As the note approaches perfect tuning, the display will automatically switch from orange to green.

Multi-Mode Versatility
The CT17 is a chromatic tuner that can tune to any of the 12 notes in the chromatic scale, and in nearly any octave. The CT17 also has dedicated modes for guitar, bass, ukulele, and violin, which automatically selects the string nearest in pitch to the note played.

Piezo Precision
The CT17 uses piezoelectric technology to count vibrations in the body of the instrument. The results are highly accurate and minimize any interference from nearby noise sources. The mounting-clip hold securely, yet won’t mar the instrument finish. A single CR2032 button battery delivers over 20 hours of continuous operation.

Worth every penny and exceeded expectations


Amazing tuner, I bought this after another one I had gotten from a different high end company failed my expectations and just wasn't up to par. Accuracy is great, the color change when the note is in key is a nice addition, and when using in chromatic it picks up every key even when the strings are barely ringing out. Couldn't ask for a better tuner especially for the price.



I would buy this again.


I love this little tuner. Not expensive and does the job. Don' t buy the Snark , reviews say they break too easily. This Samson looks a lot like a fishman I've seen. So this one is good for Guitar,Bass,Violin,and Ukulele. Nice read-out (LCD) and changes color to indicate TUNED. It also has an ON-OFF switch and a multi-angle display, comes with the battery.....go get one !!

I would buy this product again!


Easy to use!



It works


Does what It's supposed to do. Wasn't much to it just grab it off the shelf and pay for it. I did just buy a Yamaha snare drum at the Cincinnati store and had a Great shopping experience! The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable.



Nice compact tuner


Bought this tuner for my son, end up using it myself. Inexpensive, but very reliable little head stock tuner. Love the flexible brace between the clamps. Big, nicely readable screen.

I would buy this again.


I bought this to use with my bass. It is easy to use and works consistently.





Does the job fine but the hinge is a little loose and floppy.





I love the ease of use. No plugging or unplugging, just turn it on tune and go.



I would buy this product for myself and for gifting


well made. easy to read and use, good price
