Now, the pluses: it's dead-simple to use. The most complicated bit is trying to move the gauge around on the swivels to line up to be most comfortable to view - this does NOT use a gooseneck connection like some resonator-based tuners. If it's a vibration-based instrument and you can clip it to a part that resonates, you can tune it with this pretty darn accurately and easily. I'm sure it will work perfectly when I test it on a bass guitar. Also, it comes with a kinda snazzy little bag. I don't know exactly why, but hey - it's a bonus.
For the price and being dead-simple to use, it can't be beat for most instruments. If it's got a pegbox instead of a headstock or soundboard, it may be a bit more of a challenge to find a good place to clip it. I look forward to the inevitable video of someone using it to tune a piano or harpsichord.
Anyway, Somehow, this SNARK Tuner somehow dodged that Bullet. AND THE SNARK TUNER IS STILL PROBABLY THE MOST AFFORDABLE TUNER ON THE MARKET... without have been designed and manufactured to be intentionally CHEAP. The Alligator Jaws are large, short and Beefy, and the Spring not Stronger than the Plastic (most Tuners have Strong Springs and Weak Plastic.... they Break Themselves simply by Design).
And, the Swivel Flexible Neck Design and Overall Appearance is ATTRACTIVE. It is a Tuner you can put on the head of your Bass or Guitar and not worry about it being discordantly Ugly. It even looks Kind of Cool.
And... it SEEMS to even have a different and Better Electrical Engineering. MOST tuners CANNOT tune the Big Fat B String on a 5 String Bass, or, if they eventually can, it is because you have to pluck the string again and again so that the Tuner Circuit can Integrate a great many Samples so it can finally spit out a Reading. You know... Basses are NOT guitars. Strings are not free swinging Pendulums. To get a Bass String 'going' you have to pluck it... and Bass Strings are under Less Tension than Guitar Strings, and so that causes one to have to Cause More Spatial Displacement of the String in Plucking it... that is to Exert More Tension On the String... and THAT Sharpens the Note. Every Bass Players hears it..... the First Instant after Attack is ALWAYS sharper than the Sustain. So, what does a Bass Player Tune for? ... the Attack or the Sustain. Well, most of the time one is moving and playing so quickly from note to note... it is better to Tune for Attack. BUT to tune for attack, you need a Tuner with a Short Integration Time, and this SNARK has the shortest Integration time I have ever seen in a tuner. you can actually SEE the string, on Strike, go from Sharp and then flatten out. So you can chose to Tune on either Attack or Sustain,,, depending on the tempo and feeling of the song you are about to play.
So, I LOVE my New Snark.... oh, if it Breaks... I'll be sure to let everyone know...
