Answer:
According to Snark's website, the ST-2 has a mic and vibration sensor, the ST-8 appears to be vibration only, the ST-8Hz adds Hertz Tuning for 1/10th of 1 Hz Accuracy. The ST-2 replaces the SN-2, the ST-8 replaces the SN-8, etc. They do still show the originals on their website. However, Snark doesn't show the SN1X,… see more According to Snark's website, the ST-2 has a mic and vibration sensor, the ST-8 appears to be vibration only, the ST-8Hz adds Hertz Tuning for 1/10th of 1 Hz Accuracy.

Answer:
This is from the Snark instructions that come in the packaging: "To set the Snark to another tuning reference, push the round "PITCH CAL" button on the back side of the tuner and immediately press either the up or down triangular buttons to choose a new tuning reference. The pitch reference can be set anywhere from 41… see more This is from the Snark instructions that come in the packaging: "To set the Snark to another tuning reference, push the round "PITCH CAL" button on the back side of the tuner and immediately press either the up or down triangular buttons to choose a new tuning reference.

This would allow you to choose A-432. see less This is from the Snark instructions that come in the packaging: "To set the Snark to another tuning reference, push the round "PITCH CAL" button on the back side of the tuner and immediately press either the up or down triangular buttons to choose a new tuning reference.

Answer:
Models 2 and 8 work across all instruments; model 2 also has a mic option. Since you're not playing guitar, recommend avoid the other models. Get a version 2 versus an 8 if you want to clip to a stand. Theoretically the new ST versions are faster than the SN versions, but I haven't tried an ST version yet. That said… see more Models 2 and 8 work across all instruments; model 2 also has a mic option. Since you're not playing guitar, recommend avoid the other models. Get a version 2 versus an 8 if you want to clip to a stand. Theoretically the new ST versions are faster than the SN versions, but I haven't tried an ST version yet. That said, I've found than the older SNs are too slow to follow intonation while playing anything faster than whole notes. (In my experience, SN are perfect for tuning, not so much for playing; maybe the STs can handle it.) Since a trumpet bell is thin, you can probably use an ST. However, if someone needs to clip onto something thicker like a recorder (I've clipped them around the narrowest section of the foot joint on plastic soprano and smaller instruments), may want to use an older SN. see less Models 2 and 8 work across all instruments; model 2 also has a mic option.

Answer:
I use it on my basses as well as guitars, ukes, and fiddles. So yes, it should handle your drop tuning without any trouble.

Answer:
Yes, I believe it would be the best choice. The ST-2 is an all instrument tuner. I hope this was helpful.

Answer:
It is chromatic, so it will work on pretty much any instrument as long as it can detect the vibration. The brand of guitar will make no difference. It works on guitars, basses, mandolin, and banjo. Thanks for your interest.

Answer:
One of the 3 little plastic tabs on the back where the ball joint of the clip fits into the tuner housing broke on me, but I was able to fix it with a small zip tie. Been working fine ever since.
