Excelent tunner
Miguel-Rock 15.04.2019
I was looking for a small clip-on tuner for mostly home use (recording and practicing guitar). I had previously owned some no-brands cheap tuners (which cost me around 3-5 euros), and they did the job really well, and even worked well for gigging.
However, I was tempted to spend a little extra and try a more expensive one, to see if there were any difference. And with this unit, I am very happy with the extra-euros paid.
First, the construction is quite robust. It has a nice rubber cover, which makes it easy to handle and probably more road-friendly.
Second, and more importantly, the tuner itself is quite fast and precise. I was used for the other tuner bounce a bit, before settling on the note, but this one reaches the final state quite fast and accurate. (At least to my ears, and also to the recording software).
The built-in metronome is just a small heart-beat image without noise (click). I am not using this feature that much, but I believe it may become handy. What is interesting, is that you can "click" on one button of the tuner, and will set the bpm while also displaying it.
A third good point is that the screen is quite clear, even with high environmental light.
Regarding the battery, I can not comment yet, since I got it recently, but I don't think is going to be a good problem.
While cheaper tuner will do also the job, I'll totally recommend if you can spend a few extra bucks for this one.

Works well, could be sturdier

Great little tuner -- the display is easy to read and it reacts quickly. Full five stars on that one. I haven't used the metronome feature on this, so I cannot comment on it.

I will note that the build quality seems a little cheap. It just does not feel like a product that will last years.

Simple and clear

Use on all my guitars, quick to respond and simple display to get and stay in tune fast. More convenient than a phone app or mic tuner as you don't have to hold it near strings/sound hole and be able to see the display. This one clamps on the headstock and the display can be moved around so is easy to view either behind or in front of the headstock.

The metronome function is a very small beat symbol so even with the adjustable display its hard to see, but I mainly bought this as a tuner so may not use that function much.

Go on and buy one.

Where have you been all my life?

I have a separate tuner pedal on my pedalboard and I bought this clip on tuner for my small practice rig. I recently changed the strings on my guitar and did some maintenance. Since i was away from my pedalboard i decided to try out Snark clip on tuner and it was a blessing! Moreover, it is really useful for practicing bends and making sure your bends are in tune.

This product has excellent build quality. It looks nice and feels nice to touch. The screen can be angled however you wish and it displays information bright and clearly. It has clear notation (to see if you are tuning towards whole note or sharp) and enough sensitivty to tune reasonabily precisely. I will probably buy another one for my main rig.
