Thread: Best clip on tuner

  1. #41

    Default

    I have a Peterson, only problem is that I can't use it, because the little pivot that supports the spring/ pin developed a stress crack and broke!!!
    Do you thing Peterson will replace the part?

    I know I'll never know it all.

    Exactly. I've been happy with instuner for iphone but it still not as convenient as an actual clip-on tuner.

    You should write to them. Lots of companies are smart enough to take care of something like that.

    Amazon currently has the Peterson for $60 which is within about $5 of the all-time low price. I had to get one to try.

    I've also been using the Intelli 500s which have sufficed for years but I doubt they're the best since sometimes they have a bit of a hard time picking up notes.

    I think that the Peterson holds the title of best clip-on tuner but is pricey. I really like Korg's AW-2 for the price and accuracy. I use it on uke, guitar and bass and it can handle really low tunings very well.

    I have the AW-2 as well. It'll say it works just as well as the Peterson and I like how the joint is more adjustable than the Peterson. I do like the Peterson, but will say that it probably was not worth the money. I can't hear the difference in accuracy between it and the AW-2 which is about a third of the price. It's cool to have the same tuner as Jake, and I believe I've seen it on Aldrine's headstock in some videos too. But function wise, unless you have really sensitive ears, it's about the same as a less-expensive tuner.

    Can we just replace this entire thread with a sticky, which says:

    "If you can afford a Peterson, buy one. If not, buy a Korg AW-2. If that's still a bit expensive, buy a Snark SN-2"

    Ok. I took your advice. I decided I can afford a Peterson so I just ordered one!

    Peterson did replace the clip on my Stroboclip. Free, no hassle , no shipping, tremendous service.
    As to quality, the "sweetening" is amazing. I use it for acoustic guitar, ukulele and u-bass. Each has a special setting and it really makes a difference you can hear. I highly recommend this tuner, and the company.

    I know I'll never know it all.

    UPDATE: My Peterson tuner came. I've been using it for a couple of days now, and I like it. Not sure it was worth all that money, but it is really nice. I especially like it for mandolin. No regrets here.
