use as a capo for banjo 5th string!!!
June 20, 2021
Hey everyone, this is a decent tuner, super small, and the readout it not as easy to read as others, but good enough. However, I just realized a super cool trick for this on the banjo! It ratchets open and closed pretty tight, and can capo your 5th string, used upside down! No railroad spikes needed.

Doesn't recognize Low E

Terrible tuner, couldn't find a spot on my guitar to get this tuner to "hear" and tune my guitars.
  • Would never pick up the low E. Very sketchy on all other strings too.

Flimsy Design
September 6, 2020
Just bought this a day ago and it pretty worked amazingly BUT the construction/design hasn't been studied much. I mean, the electronics inside are bare when you open the battery case (you can see all the PCB and wires -which I think they crammed in the tight space but they should have at least hidden the wire connected to the Piezo part) I got the solder detached when replacing a battery! They should've just hidden the wires somewhere and soldered tightly.
  • Accurate tuning, Small and compact
  • Design inside needs fixing/ upgrade

Great little tuner ! I've read all the reviews and do not see the problems that some people are having .
November 29, 2019
I bought 4 of these and haven't had a problem with any of them . They clamp on nice and snug without making a mark , batteries last a long time , if you turn them off every time you use them . Great little tuner !
  • Small , easy to use !
  • None that I've found !

Beware of damage to the finish
August 3, 2019
Good little tuners more accurate than the snark tuners, BUT beware. I have a couple of these on my very expensive guitars. I left them on for a couple of weeks, and when I took them off they left a circle on my head stock where they had been - a mar in the finish that I couldn't buff off.

That was a bummer!

I recently gave away my snarks, and my Micros and started using KlIQ Ubertuners. They seem more accurate and faster. A little more expensive though.

Perfect for classical guitar

I have been using this small and discreet friend for two years, excellent on stage, it can go behind the headstock and you can make a discreet look at the moment of tuning.
  • Metronome light included.

Near Perfect, nearly invisible

Great tuner - very small, but still visible. Doesn't look awkward when you leave it on while playing. I've had a couple going for several years now - still going strong.
  • Does a good job of tuning, very small, but still easily visible.

Perfect for my little telecaster headstock.
Super easy to use and very visible on a dimly lit stage.
Also, if it's good enough for Mr. Jim Campilongo, it's good enough for me !

Very well !!

This tuner is very practical, easy to tune strings, easy to put it on, easy to put it off. After a year and two months first time I changed battery on tuner. Now it is as first day.
  • Easy use.
  • Nothing.

Not very dependable, disappointing over time...
July 2, 2018
I was really thrilled at first to discover this little tuner that can be concealed behind the headstock of my guitar so that it's not visible to the audience when I'm on stage, but over time, I have found this tuner to be not so dependable - often not staying lit or reading the tuning properly. I have also found the clip falls apart or falls off too easily, and I have misplaced the tuner a number of times on a dark stage...
Overall, I found myself going back to the older and larger Planet Waves clip on tuners that I purchased a few years ago.

Great gadget to have on hand
December 5, 2017
I have used this on multiple guitars in multiple situations. It works well for quick,discreet tune ups and is the smallest headstock tuner I have ever (never) seen. I keep one on the headstock of my acoustic and it just lives there - in the case and on the stage.
The visual metronome is a great addition. I have had to start tunes cold and just set this so I can get my foot tapping at the right beat before kicking off, but no distracting noise.
I have to find just the right spot on the headstock to leave the tuner when using stands that hang the guitar from the headstock.
  • Tiny
  • Multi function
  • Easy to read
  • Best placement may vary by instrument

Haven't changed the battery yet!

East to clip-on and read, and it delivers consistent results. I haven't changed the battery since I purchased it years ago.
  • Convenient clip-on
  • Swivel and orientation customization
  • Easy to read
  • Consistent tune-up
  • Sometimes I have to swivel the screen for the LED to sharpen the read-out (maybe it's time for a new battery?)

Love this tuner
May 9, 2017
I love this tuner so much. Small and working perfectly. But bad thing it is too small. I have lost 5-6 of this already.
  • - compact and fully function.
  • - good design
  • - very easy to loose or stolen as it is very small.

This tuner makes my day so much better. So small, and does such a great job of tuning, especially if you get picky with it.

Don't do it
November 17, 2016
I purchased this a couple months ago and it worked maybe 6 times before starting to blink constantly and not catching the notes.
Tried a brand new dice.
This has only been used VERY gently in my living room.
I have read elsewhere of this same blinking problem.
Not worth the hassle for me to return it.
I have other better ones.

Este afinador es muy util, además su pequeño tamaño hace que no sea molesto, y evita pasarlo a llevar con algo mas. Además, su pantalla puede configurarse para ser puesto tanto por frente, como por detras del clavijero.

I just got this item and I am very pleased with it. It's small (and that's a very good thing), it's accurate and very easy to use.
