Snark Tuner
« on: December 26, 2011, 09:01:42 PM »
I picked up one of the Snark tuners off Amazon the other day. Just tried it out today and seems pretty cool and easy to use.

Any one else have or tried one?

If not, what do you use?

I have a Planet Waves, but what I use most of the time because it is always with me is the "GStrings" app on my Android mobile phone,
it seems to be pretty accurate.

I've also got a Korg that I was using some. It works good but is a little hard to see the display sometimes. I've also got that GStrings app on my Android and it does work good.

With all the options, I think I'm pretty well set as far as tuning goes!  ;)

Same here on the Korg, plus I use a TC Electronic Polytune tuner.

i had a planet waves headstock tuner. due to either A. my inability to focus when clipping it on the headstock of strats/teles or B. its poor design of the clamp...it died upon it's 20th impact with the floor.

i use one of the little korgs nowadays...had it several years...or i tune e1 to whatever i'm playing to, and then tune the rest to taste.

I have a Boss TU-15EX for my electrics and I use a Snark 2 for my acoustic.  I really like it.  Its accurate, quick, and being black, it hides quite well.  Guitar Center had them for $30, but I found many other stores for half that price.  For $15, its a really good deal!

The more I use this, the more I like it. I can see it becoming my # 1 tuner.

I've considered a 2nd one just because it's become so useful

Just to add, I found the Guitar Only Snark 5 is $9 at Elderly Music in E. Lansing, Michigan.   They do shipping...
