These clip-on tuners detect the frequency of the vibrations at which a guitar or bass resonates when a string is plucked in order to show how close it is to being in-tune.

These types of clip-on tuners are different than the old microphone tuners which "hear" a note in order to show how close it is to being in-tune—"which means you don't have to be in a quiet environment to get the perfect tune."

This one works with guitar, bass, violin, and ukelele.

It seems like this tuner clips to the head of a guitar. Does the head of a violin or a cello not being flat like the head of a guitar not affect the ability of the device to detect the correct frequency?

This one has a kind of angled "gripper" (similar in principal & look to spring-loaded clamps), so it can have more contact with the instrument even if it has a rounded headstock, like the fern frond-like shape of that of a violin. (Third pic)

At $5, this may be a no brainer. I l either lose my Korg or get it stolen once a year to a point where my family just buys me one as a Christmas gift, and I'll always use it.

Does anyone actually own one? I'm tempted at $5, but I'd be worried about accuracy and potential headstock damage. Currently own a couple Snark tuners.

I've used various versions of these for at least 8 years now. The technology has been around since 1995. Even this $5 one should be decent.

I'm going to buy this but curious how it compares to the fender tuner app. I'm still learning how to play and tuned for a drop D but felt the app wasn't as precise as it should be.

Yeah i have this one it works good tuning wise my only con is that if you leave it on an acoustic it makes a small vibration sound when playing, a little nit picky but you just have to take off and put it back on when you retune if that sound bothers you. This might only be my tuner and not common though. I'd say it's worth 5 bucks though for sure

Yes.

The phone apps use the phone's mic, thus need a quiet room.

This directly couples to the guitar, so even basses, with their quieter volume, can be tuned without amplification.

Doesn't even say the accuracy in cents. Pass.
Best deal is istrobosoft for ipad by renowned Peterson for $9.99 with 1/10 cent accuracy.

I've thrown all of these cheap ones away years ago.
