Snark SN-5x Guitar Tuner Review

Snark SN-5x First Impressions


I'd totally recommend this to anyone needing a tuner. East to read digital readout and very user friendly. Very pleased with features, function, and reliability of this item. She is enjoying using this after she uses the pitch pipe so she can get accuracy. It does not seem to add any additional noise into the signal chain.

Snark SN-5x Final Thoughts

"Well done Snark!"

After checking out other tuners, I am getting another one. First, let me state that I am not a piano tuner. These are the two features that my personal bias marks it down for. Put it on, and let it setup for 24hours with the 3M tape provided. This tuner actually has more versatility than I need personally.
