I just bought a snark "Super tight" whatever that means I do not know and refuse to read the instructions.

Seems to work okay.

I use Snarks also. I've never broke one but I've left them at open mics and lost a couple here and there. I know they can break so I keep them in the case where extra strings are stashed or clipped to the head stock or on the goose neck of a mic stand.

I gave up on Snarks long ago after about the 3rd one broke. I'm just too hard on equipment.

So I went with the Polytune clip-ons and never looked back. They are sturdy and grab a signal no problem. Plus the hinge allows it to fold back out of the way. My stay on the guitar pretty much permanently.

Polytune clip-on for me too.

I also have their "Uni-tune". The Uni is discontinued, but are still available at Sweetwater.

My only gripe is that the "auto-off" doesn't to "re-set" with strumming/tuning.
It seems to have a "set" run time from when it initially turned on. Not a biggie or a deal breaker, but it annoys me from time to time.

Polytune Clip. A bit more expensive (but cheaper than the Peterson), but built well, works great, no worries. Done. YMMV

Polytune Clip for me, as well. I don’t play out except for the occasional jam, and my clip-on stays on my acoustic. I have a Polytune pedal on my board, but have been thinking about picking up another Clip to use on my electrics, and free up a little room.

snarks are nice but break too often. PolyTune clip is possibly the best clip on out there, barr none.

Polytune Clip. I'm not easy on it and it always works great.

I started with Onboard Electronics "Intellitouch", but I find the KLIQ Ubertuner to be more accurate.

I have a Snark, but need another clip on for upstairs in our house (yes I'm that lazy). I may try something different this time.

Peterson makes a USB-rechargeable tuner that lasts a long long time between charges. I have one and love the thing.

I have a Snark Supertight and a Korg Sledgehammer Pro. The Snark is less fussy locking on than the Korg. But the Korg's almost excessive sensitivity seems to in the end have a finer in-tune than the Snark. (This is my 2nd Snark - the 1st one broke).

I really like the Polytune clip. Being able to just mute your guitar, strum open, and see exactly which strings are out of tune is a game-changer; especially when you have a floating trem.

I just bought a Polytune Clip on the strength of this thread, and as a multiple Snark owner, I've got to say..............




I love it!!


That said, I thought I'd lost it at last night's gig, I was actually quite upset, and overjoyed when I found it in my gig bag.

I'm a total weenie when it comes to tuners and being in tune.

After suffering the results of bandmates' use of the boss pedal, etc. for years I didn't bother buying anything until the original Stroboclip came out. Accuracy is great but the readout is a bit jittery, especially with the low E. Next was the Polytune Clip; also great accuracy with a more stable readout than the Peterson. Still have both of these, and both work fine though the Peterson now requires a rubber band to make the clamp work.

Just got the latest Stroboclip which I consider to be the best clip-on so far. Very stable read-out on all strings with the usual high accuracy and includes the settings for the few guitars I have with the Buzz Feiten set-up. The only draw-back would be its "neck" which is begging to be broken by those of us who aren't gentle with our gear. The Polytune has a simpler and more durable mount and would be my choice if I had to pick just one.
