Snark SN5X Guitar Tuner Review

Snark SN5X First Impressions

"Not sure the output on these."

If you place it on your music sheet stand, that's great. The battery lasts for about 1200 tunings. First set are spectacular and my son love them. While I held the old one he strummed and checked the results that each one gave. This is the best pedal tuner I've found so far.

Snark SN5X Final Thoughts

"Nice and small and work as they should."

Thus, in theory, you can watch your tuning as you play. I've had this pedal for 10 years still works great. Snark also has the instruction manual as a PDF online if you need it. It was just as described and arrived promptly and packaged well! This has a LARGE display, bright red LED's, strobe and chromatic settings.
