I reluctantly ordered this tuner because I am accustomed to paying $80-100 for a decent tuner, and I believed there was no way this tiny little tuner could accomplish anything. Boy, was I wrong!
When it arrived, I was shocked at the quality of the soft touch plastic and the brightness and crispness of the screen. My old tuner used little LED lights and they are fine but it was a huge tuner which didn't attach to my instrument.
I adjusted the clip and mount, and that's when I noticed the switch to tune via Vibration or Mic. This is an incredibly important feature if you play in a band or in orchestra where there are many external sounds happening. I bought this tuner to play my harp at home but I still prefer tuning via Vibration.
As I began tuning my harp, I realized just how great this tuner is because the screen was so easy to see. At around 1" I didn't think it would be easy to see, but the layout is everything. The various colors also contribute to this excellent little workhorse.
I didn't know it had a visual metronome when I bought it, but that doesn't do me much good because I prefer a classic audible metronome. It comes with a little pouch.
Overall, I am completely impressed with this beauty. No more Korg tuner with the pickup mic. No more hauling around one more piece of equipment.
Bottom line: absolutely 5 stars for being an excellent tuner, killer price, easy to use, easy to carry, no learning curve.
One of my kids has been borrowing my trusty old BOSS TU-12 chromatic tuner forever for her violin, and I finally bought this for her.
There are many clip-on tuners, but I liked the following about this tuner:
1. LCD mimicing an analog needle so you know how much you're off (as opposed to just flat or sharp).
2. You can switch between vibration sensor and an internal mic. Most of the time you want to use vibration sensor anyway, but a mic sometimes comes in handy.
3. Can set different pitch than A=440.
4. Not expensive (was less than [...]$ including shipping).
Upon delivery I tried it on my guitars (both acoustic and electric) using vibration sensor before giving it to my kid, and was impressed.
It is quick to track the note even for low E. It's not picky about where on the peghead it is clipped on. No stress whatsoever, indeed it's just as quick and smooth as my BOSS. LCD is bright and clear, and needle-ish display works as expected.
It worked very well on violin too. And I saw kids singing to internal mic to check the pitch of their voices just for fun.
And a note about the looks. From the picture I expected it to be ugly, but actually it was not that bad. It's tiny and doesn't look like a Fisher-Price product.
First update, Nov 24 2010: I've tried it on an electric bass (4 string), and it worked equally well. Still 5 stars.
Second update, Oct 20 2011: It's still working happily for my daughter, and I bought a second unit for myself. Fantastic product.
The Snark chromatic has a week structural point where the long curved arm plugs into the clip base. Snark SN-2 All Instrument Clip-On Chromatic TunerI had the tuner on the headstock of my guitar in a gig bag. When the gig bag fell over I found the base had cracked. I don't think this would have happened to the IMT-500 which doesn't have the long arm. Super glue will not hold this type of break.
The second Snark stopped reading vibration but thanks to it's design it also reads audibly. Have yet to contact Snark but it should be warrantied.
If the base had not cracked and the second Snark continued to work in audio and vibration this tuner would have received 5 stars. This would not keep me from buying another--the price is right.
*** REVIEW Update 12/08/11--Snark replaced both units without question--excellent customer service!
It worked great and with every instrument I tried it with (guitar, bass, violin...) The red color is actually kind of cool, and the only problem I had was with the display that can be very hard to see in a bright environment, such as in an open-air gig.
There's one MAJOR flaw though, and I find it strange that not many people here are not talking about it:
The "neck" of the tuner, that connects the clamp to the actual tuner is extremely thin and fragile.
You can't see it properly on the pictures there are up at Amazon. It's so fragile that the smallest bump or even the weight of the neck of the guitar when you lay it flat are enough to break it. It might take some time - mine lasted about 6 months - but I'm almost sure that the end of the line for most Snark tuners is a broken neck.
If you're thinking of buying it, I would suggest a different, sturdier tuner. If you already have one, take good care of it and don't leave it on the guitar if you're not using it or if it's inside a gig bag or case.
