Clip-On Guitar Tuner
Easily tune your guitar, bass, or other stringed instrument, even in the noisiest environments, using this Clip-On Guitar Tuner from Monoprice!
This tuner is designed to clip to the headstock of your guitar or other stringed instrument. It operates by picking up the vibrations of the instrument as the strings are plucked, which means you don't have to be in a quiet environment to get the perfect tune.
The tuner has specialized modes for tuning a Guitar, Bass, Violin, or Ukulele. Each instrument mode identifies the string position of the tune, making it perfect for beginners. It also features a Chromatic mode, which simply identifies the note being tuned, including sharp and flat tones, which is more suited for experienced players.
The tuner operates in the B0 to B7 tuning range and the A4 tune can be adjusted incrementally from 430-450 Hz. The tuner is powered by a CR2032 battery (included) and features a color LCD display.
- Five Tuning Modes: Guitar, Bass, Violin, Ukulele, and Chromatic
- Four Optional Flat Tunings: b, bb, bbb, and bbbb
- Adjustable A4 Frequency: 430 ~ 450 Hz
- B0 ~ B7 Tuning Range
- Requires CR2032 Battery (Included)

Didn't last 6 months

Pros: Cheap price
Cons: Cheap product
I bought 2 tuners 6 months ago and they were fine while they lasted. One was less sensitive than the other out of the box, though it worked, but now will barely pick up a sound no matter where it's placed. The other won't power on even with brand new batteries.

Not the best tuner for bass, but adequate

Pros: Easy to read, seems accurate
Cons: Not reliable on lower bass strings
I bought this as kind of a backup tuner for bass. I typically rely on the built-in tuner on my multi-effects box, which works okay, but because it uses 2 flashing lights (one for low, one for high, if they both light up then you're in tune) does not give the best feedback for how far out of tune the instrument is. This tuner gives that information graphically and I don't have to be plugged in to tune my instrument. However, it does not always detect the E string very well, and is no use at all on the B string on my 5-string.
That being said, in my experience finding a tuner that works reliably with very low strings is a bit of a crap shoot, so I wasn't expecting too much. In other respects, it's a decent tuner and serves adequately for just checking my tuning, which was what I wanted it for. I would not recommend this as the only tuner, at least for bass, but for the price it's handy to have clipped on your headstock. It gets points for the easy to read display.

Pros: Worked for a few days. Monoprice customer service was really good
Cons: Stops working after a few days. Also, slow to get pitch.
It worked fine the first few days (although slow), then it stopped reading the B string, then a few days later, the D string. I contacted Monoprice and they sent me a replacement. Same thing happened with that one. I contacted them again and they refunded it and told me to throw it out, so that was good at least. +1 for customer service, -1 for the product itself. I was surprised to see good reviews, maybe they just have a bad batch or something.

Cons: Painfully slow at getting pitch indications. Also, it rattles if you leave it on the headstock.
Too bad. I really like Monoprice but I think they missed it with this one. Didn't have time to get a return going and I missed the 30 day deadline. Could get a replacement but I think mine works the way it was intended.

Pros: Tunes accurately.
Easy to configure for sightline.
Cons: A bit bigger than it absolutely must be.
Good clip-on tuner. Accurate and bright.
A bit bigger than it absolutely must be due to body of tuner itself and the fact that there is a small gooseneck holding the tuner to the clip. Minor issue, since it's pretty small as is.
