Great product


Easy to use and very durable



Affordable, Effective


This little tuner is a sweet and affordable clip on tuner with a nice digital display. It's very accurate and tunes up quick.




Not "rugged" but works fine


I bought this tuner for home/practice use and it works fine. Display is large and easy to read. Not sure I'd take it to a gig though as it's a little flimsy. Works fine for what I need and seems accurate so far.

Compact and Accurate


Super awesome tuner for cheap. It turns on automatically when you clip it on and if you for get to take it off it shuts off after 5 minutes. LED screen is super bright and easy to see in the dark. Always nice to have a clip on tuner for those loud gigs and they are so cheap you can buy two and have one in your gig bag for back up. They take a standard 2032 battery so they can be replaced easily but the battery life is super long

Quality Tuner at a Budget Price


I've tried almost all the clip on tuners over the years and I have found this one to be the best quality for the money. Bright display makes it easy to tune on dark stages and the tuning sensitivity is very accurate. I'd highly recommend this tuner for all instruments and situations. This is a Sam Ash review.

Great small tuner


Everyone needs a reliable tuner. This one is very accurate and also compact which makes it ideal for overfilled cases or gig bags. Its' compact size also works well for smaller instruments like soprano ukulele's and mandolins. The auto on feature keeps the footprint small and also makes for easy operation. This is a solid tuner that any musician could benefit from.

The handiest tuner I have ever owned. I can take this around with me easily. It is small, but easily can be read and can fit in a small spot, so it is not big and bulky like other tuners can be. Clips easily around a lanyard or a strap..can also leave it on the headstock if you wish. Tunes almost anything and accurately too

My Favorite Tuner


This really is my favorite tuner. It's accurate, small, and almost all of the real estate on the product is screen, so you can tell what note you're playing in the dark, on stage, with the volume off, from a mile away. Still, it's small enough to leave on your headstock without looking goofy. Also, there are no little parts on it than can be easily broken. So designwise, I think it's the best.

Great little tuner!


The CT260V is one of the most compact tuners available. Very accurate, with an easy to read LCD. Perfect for almost any string instrument. Great for students and teachers alike.
