I'm looking to get a clip on tuner for my classical guitar, since it always goes out of tune when going from class to class with it. Any suggestions on a good clip on tuner, that also will blend well and not so big? Thanks.

The Snark is great! It's cheap and quite accurate. You're not really supposed to leave them on while playing, but they look nice if that's your plan.

What Roc said. they can be had for cheap on Ebay. i think i grabbed one for $12.

I was gonna keep it on when I'm practicing, since my classical doesn't like to hold tune on some strings. Also there is a bunch of different Snarks which one is better or are they all the same?

I have this one, and the only time I take it off my guitar is to change the strings. Works great

Only problem I have with the Snark is that the sides on the ball joint on the back break off after a while. Other than that, awesome tuner. Worth the money.

I haven't had it happen yet, but they do seem fairly flimsy. The ball came out of the socket once for me and I thought I was going to snap something putting it back in. +1 with it overall though: dirt cheap, accurate enough for live tuning, and very fast tracking.

We used these at work and we had at least five break, but they also get a lot more use than they do at peoples' homes.

We've switched to the bulkier Samsons. They don't have the ball joint. None of those have had any issues.. they're just not as well-designed.

Would the Snark be a decent alternative to a pedal tuner for someone who plays live occasionally, or would it be wiser to eat it and buy a Pitchblack (or something similar)?

Snark

Most pedal tuners = way too expensive.

I have a half-dozen or so Snarks laying around in my guitar room, and have given away at least that many.

Got a pair of the planet waves mini headstock tuners. Like their small size and they seem to work great.

SN5 is less expensive, has no tap tempo or metronome.

I have a pitchblack and would highly recommend it for playing live
#20
Hm. The Snark is highly recommended but delicate, and the Pitchblack is expensive but probably won't break with drunken handling.

The only thing I don't really like about my Snark is that it's a constant reminder that I need to re-intonate a few strings.

But that's a good thing, right?
