    I have 2. They came with ukes I bought. They are small, work well and have chromatic, C and D tuning settings.

    Clip on tuners will work with your Risa.

    I have been happy with Snarks, accurate, easy to read and auto shut off. I did just order a Peterson just to check it out...more accurate is good!

    There are also free iPhone app tuners. Not sure about Android.

    I have the cherub that came with my makala concert bundle , works great, just got a snark, I thought it was off but the guy at the music store checked it for me and tells me it's fine, I guess I have to get use to it. But the one I like the most and the one that stays on my tenor is the D'Addario miniheadstock tuner, awesome little tuner and dang near idiot proof, which helps me a lot ,lol .

    They work fine, just not a lot of wood to clip it on to - but they do work

    Have owned bunches of clip ons. One of my faves is also one of the cheapest purchases I made, made by Intelli (IMT-500.) Very good accuracy, quick response, bends out of the way, nice backlight. Bought a number of years ago, in the $20-$25 range.

    I think for "best" clip on I'd have to say the Peterson strobo-clip - simply because with the simulated strobe display it is capable of displaying higher precision than anything else in the clip on category.

    However, it's in the neighborhood of $75 so unless you're doing a lot of setups get something simple and disposable (i.e. a Snark or the like) and be happy with it.

    I leave my Stroboclip in my toolbox with my setup tools and supplies. For everyday use I use a Snark. If I drop it and step on it (did I mention that my middle name is clumsy?) I won't shed any tears.

    I'm not entirely convinced that it is possible to polish a turd. However, if one were to accomplish that feat one would still have a turd, and one all the more noticeable for being shiny.

    I love my Peterson strobe tuner...it's about dead on accurate...everyone wants to use it...well worth the money!

    Protuner for iPhone and iStrobe tuner by Peterson are very accurate tuners. Now if I could only figure out a way of clipping my iPhone onto my uke!

    I received my Kala clip on, and I'm really happy with it.
    Easy to read - you can change the angle of the face.
    It *hears* the uke very, very quickly, and it seems to be very accurate.

    Love it.

    I'm still an all Kala shop on the uke - Kala bari, case, and now tuner.
