The smallest there is
Head of Vecna 09.04.2021
It's about the smallest clip tuner in existence, it's totally unobtrusive, you can stick it on the headstock and just leave it there forever. I'm using these on all my electric and acoustic guitars, also I've used it on my bass ukulele in the past.

The pros:
-small footprint
-quicker turn-on and turn-off time than the previous version, PW-CT-10
-quick response
- it's reasonably accurate for the practical purposes. My Korg CA-50 seems to be more precise.
- reliability. I've had two of the previous version for what, eight years now, and never had issues with them, if that's any indication.

The cons:
- tuning sensitivity. It sometimes struggles with the B string on a guitar, shows it as F#. And while it is possible to use this thing on a bass, you'd better use 12th fret harmonics to tune it. It doesn't pick the low B up on my five-string.
- viewing angles could be better. Sometimes the shape of the headstock prevents you from turning the screen directly at you, and it gets hard to see what's going on. The previous green version has better angles.
- it's a touch expensive for what it is.

Overall, it's a good, very small tuner. There are better options if the size isn't the primary concern.

Convenient, tiny, sturdy
bpiskin 26.02.2020
A perfect tuner even if you play at crowded gigs with a lot of noise. The clip and the head can be easily adjusted on the part of your instrument you want the tuner to be hung. Calibration setting works just fine.

The only negative feedback I would give about this tuner is that for the bass guitar it takes some time to see the minor tuning changes on its screen. You have to hold the string and hit it once again to see what actually happened.

From price/quality perspective, this is a very good tuner !

Amazing little tuner
stumacd 09.12.2021
I have one of these on all my stringed instruments now as they work amazingly well for something so small. Most people don't even notice its there.
Another top quality D'addario product. As far as tuning goes it is excellent, easy to use and the battery lasts for ages.
