    Default Tuner for a Risa solid stick

    I think my UU forum search skills are poor, as I have not found he answer to this question.

    Is there a clip-on tuner that works well with a Risa solid tenor? This uke has no headstock and my tiny D’Addario NS Micro Clip-On Tuner barely fits and it is not a long term solution.

    Thanks

    Good question! I also have a bit of trouble with clip on tuners. So I have been using a free tuner on my phone. Curious to hear other solutions. Thanks!

    If it’s too thick for a normal clip-on there are magnetic ones that may work.

    You can get a plug-in tuner either as a pedal or a small box - many metronomes include that, or get a small interface for your phone.

    I finally found some older threads

    It’s looking like the two workable options are a bigger clip-on that I’d need to remove after tuning, or an in-line pedal tuner. Both options have pros and cons. “Both” is probably the answer. The use case depending on the playing scenario.

    A snark worked fine for me. You do need to remove it while playing. No big deal

    Alternatively use a Korg tuner. They have a jack socket, so you can plug them into the outlet jack.

    I have several ukuleles in various sizes and am not planning on getting any more...

    at least, not yet.

    I also play some blowy things and a squeezy thing

    As above, I use a Snark SN-6 with all my ukes.

    Quite a few tuners have a microphone function as well. I have had good results with my Korg CA-30. It is been usefull for the past 8 years.

    Try clipping the tuner onto the body somewhere (maybe on the top edge behind the last tuning machine close to the end). I have a home-made solid body instrument (not a uke) that I have to do that on because there just isn't enough room on the headstock. It works.

    No problems using a Snark on the "headless" head area, and removing it when playing.
