Son of Snark Electronic Tuner

It's OK

As some reviewers have pointed out, it's difficult to position it to allow easy viewing. Seems to tune fine. I bought two of them thinking they were going to be better; I regret doing so.

Unfortunate Design

I wanted to like this tuner due to the size and the Snark brand. I bought two when I saw the StewMac email promoting them. Unfortunately, the design of this tuner won't allow it to fit at a usable angle on any of my guitars. If I can get it to stay put on the headstock, the viewing angle is all wrong and I can't tell what the unit is registering. The tuner also has a strange habit of suddenly losing its grip on the headstock and flying off like a spring-loaded missile. If you can try one out before you buy it, just a minute or two will let you know if it's usable for you. I wanted so much for this darn thing to work for me, as the size and construction (not design!) are great.

Great little tuner

I love Snarks, and this one has the same high quality. Only disappointment is, I'm a lefty, and on a 3 on a side head stock, you have to crane you neck a bit to see the screen. Not a knock, just an FYI for you fellow lefties!

Unobtrusive but Difficult to See

By Wayne Tutzauer from Denver, CO

I like this tuner because it sits out of the way on the back of the headstock. However, since it has no way to swivel it needs to be placed very carefully in order to see the note being displayed. I found that the ideal location (for me) is right behind the "D" tuner which means that I cannot get a decent grip on the tuning button.. The Son of Snark is a good standby but I'm going to stick with my full size Snark.
