Great little tuner
This fits nicely onto the body of the violin and there's no reason not to leave it there all the time. All the other people I know who use this tuner do so. The rubber feet make sure there is no damage to the instrument and the tuner itself is very small, unobtrusive and weighs practically nothing. Very easy to use and read. Switches itself off after a period so you don't even have to remember that. I have given 4 stars for accuracy ONLY because I have no way to 'professionally' verify it - but I'm always exactly in tune with everyone else. I love this item and recommend it very highly.
More info on the CT-14 which is not easily found
I thought I'd write a few words to answer questions I couldn't find answers to regarding the CT14 Tuner. 1. The difference between the CT-14 and the cheaper CT-12 is that the cheaper CT-12 is not designed to fit onto a violin. Although almost identical to the CT-14, the CT-12 has a different clamp arrangement. 2. The CT-14 is CHROMATIC, i.e. it dispalys ALL notes played, not just G,D,A,E. 3. The CT-14 will also display the lower octave notes of an 'octave' violin. 4. The clamp on the CT-14 griping the tuner to the body of the violin can extend up to 4cm max. 5. The tuner itself is designed to freely swivel left and right once fitted to the instrument (violin/viola) And YES, I'm very pleased with imy CT-14, even though it may be fractionally slower than a Snark.
Best tuner I've ever had
Well so far I love this. It's tiny! (in a good way!) wasn't expecting that. Very discreet. It actually attaches to all my violins - 1900 acoustic, Sonic electro acoustic and Bridge 5 string electric. Attaches easily to left shoulder of instrument and is fine even on the Bridge - despite less available attachment space. Seems to respond much more quickly than other tuners I've tried. Easy to use, easy to read, you could actually keep it on while performing if you really wanted to. My new Wittner fine tuning pegs are slipping a bit and this was very annoying during a recent performance (fairly loud noise environment) so I think next time I'll keep this attached until I've the pegs sorted. As well as attaching very easily in a non-marking way, the 'head' can be rotated to an angle that best suits your own line of vision. The tuner colours like traffic lights will help beginners a lot with understanding when a string is in tune, sharp or flat. Beginners might want to wathc they don't drop this as it's so small it might get trodden on but other than that I can see no 'cons' at all so far. Haven't tested tuner live in noisy environment, only at home so far. Haven't tested metronome function as I won't be using that myself. Definitely worth buying. Pleased p.s. 2 of mine are 5 string violins - so yes, it'll definitely work for 5 string violins or violas that are EADG+C or E+ADGC

Great accuracy and speed of tuning from a clip on tuner. This new version Snark is excellent.
I have several of the earlier versions of the Snark, having been a fan since their inception. This new version is a much brighter and clearer screen than previous ones and works faster too. The hz button works fine and the reading is clear although relatively small on the main screen. Like the Peterson tuners the hz display is about getting very fine tuning, however fans of the strobe tuning on those won’t have the same visual cues. The Snark is good enough to get my Classicals and Electrics easily and quickly in tune. The instructions do say do not put it on ANY Gibson guitar and nitrocellulose finishes, the previous reviewer was right about that. Older versions of the Snark had similar warnings but not about Gibson specifically. I did notice some minor pressure marks on two French polished guitars but I did leave the old Snark tuner in situ for long periods and the marks were easily polished out. I had no issues on Ibanez guitars at all. This new tuner will sit on a Cordoba dolce headstock most of the time and so far no marks but it’s only been on a couple of days. I didn’t know whether the Gibson thing might have been a bit of a poke at Gibson - The Gibson’s I have owned and played weren’t that great with intonation etc.. The odd pressure marks came off easily with Mr.Sheen (natural) and microfibre cloth. For the cost of around £20.00 this is the best value clip on tuner there is. An update in Nov 2020. Still the best and have come done to £14.99. I now have a third and they function perfectly and have NO issues with marks on the headstocks other than my comments in 2018.
Works well, takes a little while to get the hang of it.
Such a huge improvement on using the old “pitch pipes” method of tuning my guitar! I could never get the hang of that and always needed a friend to tune for me, as I don’t have the ear to do it. This Snark digital tuner is fantastic though. Simply clip the small, light weight gadget on top end of guitar and twizzle it round (ball joint) to view the readout. It took me a little while to get the hang of tuning gently to get within the lines. I also realised that new strings need tuning more often. Once I got the hang of it, then I found it so easy to use. I’m using it on a steel string acoustic guitar. I’d highly recommend this to anyone who can play a guitar but doesn’t have the natural ear to tune by pitch.
It's a Snark so it's good
Snark tuners are simply great, and this new model is no exception. There is only one small thing which I DON'T LIKE about this tuner. It just happens to be the same on, as far as I know, on all Snark tuners. That is the ON/OFF switch. where it is placed, it is very prone to be accidentally switched on by the unit being pressed up against another object. This has happened to me several times when I have put it away in a gig bag with other items. Result a flat battery. This in my opinion could be easily solved by using a slidable on/off switch and not a push button type. So come on Snark, make your product even better and change the on/off switch type.

Great Value, Accurate and Easy to Use
I've quite a few tuners I've bought over the years. I've even still got my A440 tuning fork I used to used to tune my classicals. My other electronic tuners have always been a bit of a 'faff'. Electric guitar - mess about with cables. Acoustics - balance the tuner so it can 'hear' the guitar and make sure it's pretty quiet where you are. This little gadget is brilliant. Clip it on the headstock and away you go - doesn't matter if it's electric or acoustic. Using 'Guitar Mode' - it identifies the string being tuned and turns green when in tune. I've checked it against my other more expensive tuners and it's spot on. Chromatic, Guitar, Bass, Violin and Ukulele modes - everything you could want! And so cheap - what's not to like.
Excellent for a complete guitar beginner!
This device is brilliant for someone new to playing a guitar. My dad bought me a guitar when I was 12 years old and due to the Coronavirus lock down, 30 years later I thought I would bring it down from the loft and give it a go. I inserted the battery and it came on straight away. Used the clip to put it on the top end of the guitar but the first string (low E) was showing as G! I went into panic mode and went straight to youtube to find answers. To cut a long story short it turns out that you have to keep turning the 'guitar tuners' at the top till the electric tuner changes to the correct letter. This set me off in another panic as my guitar was so out of tune I thought I was gonna snap the strings when turning. Luckily I persevered and managed to re tune all 6 strings (whilst holding my breath). Its It's a lot smaller than I imagined, but I would never have been able to tune my guitar without it!
Not For Bass Guitar
This wee tuner is very small, but the screen is nice and sharp and the notes appear crisp and black against the backlit display. The tuner has several modes, but I was only using it with electric guitar and bass. There is a mode for guitar, which worked well. But chromatic seems to work just as well, and might be more useful if you are using alternative tunings. In bass mode the tuner did well with the top two strings, but it struggled with the A and E strings. It did work better in chromatic mode, but even that couldn't catch the low B. There's a single button to toggle on and off (both long presses) and swap between modes (single short press), and the overall construction is great. The screen is plastic, but not flimsy, and the securing clip has plenty of grip. As well as a graphical pitch indicator the whole screen changes colour (from blue to green) to show when pitch is reached. Cheap, reasonable quality and functional, but bass players should look elsewhere.
