Historically ive never really got on with clip on tuners but im gonna need one in the near future for acoustic open mic stuff. Much less hassle than a pedal tuner. I wanna travel light.

So, which one is the most reliable in peoples experience. I dont have a particular one in mind cos there are tonnes of them.

I bought my brother the Snark SN-1 last year and he loves it (for acoustic)

I just bought a Snark S-1 mini and it is decent. I don't see it replacing my tuner pedal, but it is nice to have

I don't have an opinion as to 'best' but I've had very good luck with the Snarks.

I have both a Snark and a Planetwaves/D'Addario one. The Snark in nice but sticks out a bit, and I found mine doesn't pick up as well as it first did, even with new batteries.

The D'Addario one is really small and hides well on the guitar. Still a colour screen, and has the metronome if you need it (never really used them on the tuner...) It seems to be better at picking up the vibrations in my experience of it so far (around a year). I'm looking to get a few more of these for my other guitars so I don't have to swap them about so much.

I've been using a Tanglewood FCT1 fusion capo tuner for a couple of years now. Yeah I know the name sounds a bit ... but it fits nicely onto the headstock and has an easy to read screen which goes red or green if you are out of or in tune. You can also use it as a capo, like it says on the tin, although I've not tried that yet. The main downside is that it's a bit more expensive £25. It also occasionally fails to pick up the note but I think that's common to all clip on tuners, just play it again and you are usually fine. Anyway that's my 2p worth and I hope you open mics go well

Snarks' claw (pivot) tend to get brittle and break over time, based on my experience and other guitarists'. I am now using Son of Snark. Other than that, its display is very good and fast.

i have two snarks when MF was putting them at the stupid deal of the day. $7 each, but they are blue i don't really care.

I don't leave it on though really, i killed a planet waves one after a few days. it fell to its death. it was a piece of shit.

I have the Korg one. It works really well but it isn't much use to me except for at home. I play in a loud band, it's friggin useless on stage. Well, no clip on tuner is gonna work properly when there's an 800W 6x10 bass rig on the other side of the stage making the walls shake.

+3.1415, it only really goes out in smaller venues, but pedal tuners are the way to go IMO.

As far as practice and home go, you can't go wrong with the Snarks... Live? Well just tune that sh*t before you go onstage...

Yeah I know they're not much cop for a live band, I have a TU-3 for that. I'm talking for acoustic open mic stuff so there won't be any bass player, just moi and the singist.

Been looking at the snarks, also the Boss offering
