Ain't turned 60, but I got my blinker on

I've purchased many Snark clip on tuners for myself and my students. I just got one of the new Snark Super Tight tuners. <br /> <br /> The display is brighter, and when compared to an original Snark, (which is great) with both clipped to my acoustic at the same time, the new tuner is slightly faster, and slightly more accurate. The originals are still very good (and better than most) but the Super Tight is a little better. Similar pricing too. The one I bought is black, and has all the features of the red (transpose, metronome) but no microphone. There is a small hole where the mic is on the red unit, so I assume there is a model available with the mic or may be soon.

I've also bought a number of the Snarks (in red, blue, old black and the new "Super Tight" black) for myself, family and friends, and they work great. I recently purchased three of the Super Tight's on sale locally for 11.95 - very close to the Amazon price at your link.<br /> <br /> My daughter broke the first one I gave her because she gave it a rough twist when she first put it on her guitar's headstock. The store replaced it for free, and she's learned to be more gentle. I tell folks to be careful at first, until they're used to how the swivel joints work. <br /> <br /> Other than that, it's a practical accurate tuner.

I bought one and really liked it but I left it at a house where we were practicing and the guitarist who mainly played drums had nothing to tune his 12 string acoustic with so I gave it to him.

I bought one and I like it very much. It's great for when you don't want or need to break out the Peterson or you're away from your pedalboard or acoustic guitars. I like the speed of the new Super Tight.

Totally on board with the Snark Super Tight here. It is quick & bright enough to see on sunlit stages. It works great on all notes on electric bass too. What a bargain!

I have successfully repaired two broken Snarks. <br /> <br /> Take whatever is on the good end of the Snark off. <br /> <br /> Place the ball into the broken end and superglue the broken piece back on, taking care not to get glue on the ball. <br /> <br /> Cut a piece of shrink tubing, about 1/2". It should easily slip over the three claws. <br /> <br /> Put super glue on the outside of the claws, put the shrink tubing over the claw and heat to shrink. <br /> <br /> Now put superglue on the outside of the tubing and put another piece of shrink tubing and shrink. <br /> <br /> Trim off the excess shrink tubing with a single edge razor blade, or sharp Xacto knife. <br /> <br /> Put the other end back on the other ball. <br /> <br /> Good to go.

Haven't tried the Snark 8 but read where most like them. I had a Snark 2 but left it at a practice and just let a guy have it. After considerable research I narried my choices to Snark 8, Snark 11, and Delta Labs ct-10. I chose the CT-10. Big Bright display,easier to adjust the tuning and sees the B string without a problem. It is fast and the Display background is Red until you are right on an it not only shows the Note and + and - (above note/ below note)but the background turns green when you are right on the note. It has +/- 1 cent accuracy. So far I am tickeled to death

I bought one of Snarks new square, small tuners. It is great, but the angle it sits at is too steep. But for those who don't like the extended arm of the original Snarks, it is a good alternative. <br /> <br /> My Snarks of any model handle my low B great.

Thanks for the heads-up on the Delta Labs ct-10 - I hadn't seen those before! I'll have to see if they sell them locally.

Got my Delta Labs CT-10 at Guitar Center. $25 plus tax<br /> <br /> <br /> Steve, I saw those on Bassstringsonline.com and wondered about them. Thanks for the review

Update: The Delta labs does well at picking up the low B string using rounds but a bit "iffy" on TI Jazz Flats B. Sill, I use E (5th Fret) to tune in those cases and it works fine.<br />

The angle it sits at is wrong. It works well though.

Final comments on Delta Labs CT-10 clipon tuner. I like how when you are exactly in tune the whole display changes from red background to green. Nice touch for us old farts. Another thing is I used this tuner to intonate my bass until I could get to my Peterson VS-1 Strobe. While not exact it was very close and sounded pretty decent. +/- 1 cent vs. +/- 1/10 of one cent for the VS-1. Great little tuner but I find using the VS-1 a little easier as I just look for the bars to slow to a stop.

Just bought the CT-10, primarily for its big display.

The super tight is pretty accurate but I won't take it to the job because if it gets dropped the head doesn't just pop off to be put back on but breaks making it useless.:0(<br />

My Delta 10 disappeared and I noticed a friends display was pretty low in contrast and apparently going bad. I bought a Snark Super Tight tuner at the advise they last much longer than others.<br /> So far I am very happy.<br />

I've got lots of clip on tuners. By far, I like my Snarks the best. <br /> <br /> BTW, I've fixed 3 broken Snarks. While none of mine broke (and I don't treat them gingerly) a couple students managed to break them. I fixed them up just fine. <br /> <br /> I leave them on guitars and basses, in the gig bags when I take them to gigs, and occasionally, they'll fall off in transit, but none have broken.
