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.

Best tuner for travel guitars
EugeneLugovoy, 04.03.2021
I've bought this tuner specially for my Hofner travel guitar and it really great. Nicely fitted, pretty small, good precision and display visibility. The minus is a bit delay of recognition, but it's not a big trouble. Also it was good while testing on my acoustic and bass guitars, but I cannot recommend it to use with bass.
Anyway I'm really happy to have and use it for everyday, and as for me it is the best tuner for travel guitars or simply small string instruments, like ukulele, mandolin and so.

José Pedro Pinto, 26.03.2021
Great, discreet tuner. I liked it so much I got 3 to keep at all times on my 3 guitars, saving me the hassle of changing tuner when I pick up another guitar. The calibration is a fun feature for exotic tunings. The color screen is vivid and easy to see, but still plenty discreet for live usage. The battery lasts many months of everyday use. The pickup is very sensitive, I only have trouble detecting vibrations when I drop my low E string to A or A# (which honestly is to be expected, and I wouldn't fault the tuner for that) Very recommended.

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 !
