To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I gave the third chance to this product as I like the brightness of the screen. I bought 2 "clip on" and both were not tight enough. Therefore fell on the floor and broke the plastic which holds the round head hook. I used it without tightener but it's not handy and I decided to buy another "Clip on". At this time, it just did not work anymore after a little while (bought it from the high street retailer). I made my third attempt: I bought the super tight. It fell with my guitar and It is no longer working. Cannot find the third one. I register it for the warranty, although Snark only covers if you have bought it in the States!! All of it happened in the past 2 years. Good luck!
I ordered this 8 months ago for tuning a bass guitar. There is always a delay of 1-2 seconds for it to display the note. Sometimes a bass guitar 'A' displays as a C# (not ideal, let's be honest). Worst of all the display is dull to the point of unreadable, and has now packed in altogether after 8 months.
Snark HZ 'Super Tight' Clip-on All Instrument Tuner is being mis-sold, it only works on guitars. The instructions say the Hz feature should be used on a guitar tuned in sequence low to high. On other instruments the Hz reading is completely different from the true frequency of the note being played. The basic Snark 'Super Tight' Clip-on All Instrument Tuner is good and works well but the Hz version is clumsy in operation and limited in use.
I thought it worked ok at first but it is very fiddly in finding the note. I use my teachers one to compare and it makes this look utter crap. Don’t bother by Snark Suoer Tight which works like a breeze.
Bad: I've had two of these and they both stopped working. First one lasted a couple of months and the second lasted 10 months. The battery life is also very poor. The plastic is very hard and brittle.... not durable, if you drop it it will crack.
Poor quality tuner in my eyes, silly swivel clip rubber that is always coming off, bought to replace old clip on tuner that I thought was not getting the vibrations through it until I put this one on and realised it is worse. So very disappointed, would not recommend at all.
