I've used other tuners, such as the Korg and D'Addario headstock mount tuners. All work reasonably well, but I really like this one because it is almost invisible. Plus, I can see it better than the headstock tuner and it can stay clipped to the soundhole all the time - no need to remove it, except to replace the battery. Overall good value.
I've trusted my Snark tuners for a long time now, but having some stick out like that on the headstock isn't always the most visually appealing site. So, when I saw this little soundhole tuner, I thought I'd give it a try.
- so small and discreet
- can stay in the soundhole - never be without it
- tunes fast and accurate
- easy to read display
- auto shut-off
- when it gets loud, it has a hard time tuning the low E string (when there are no other instruments, no problem)
- I've read elsewhere that the clip that connects it to the soundhole can be fragile and break off
