I'm a cellist and got this thinking it would be nice to use a classical brand for tuning when playing with my band as it can be hard to hear on stage sometimes. This thing is not very good - poor at picking up low end open C as nothing reads on the screen. Very disappointed. Get a Snark instead - every guitarist uses one, wish they had them available on SHAR for string players.

I own this and the Shar Mini. The pluses for this are the electronics, features and accuracy. The minus is the clip mechanism and size/shape. It is inconvenient clipped to the violin bridge. It does not fasten well over the nut or peg box edge. I find the Shar more useful.

I asked Shar specifically what tuner would be able to pick up the low frequencies of the bass strings. They recommended this one, and let's just say it was a disappointment. It sometimes says the wrong note, or no note at all on the E string. I bought this for a student so she could tune her bass at home. $20 down the drain.
Hello Jeffrey! I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble with your new tuner. This clip on tuner comes highly recommended from our bass players on staff. If you have not done so yet, please try clipping it onto the bridge to see if it picks up the pitch. If the tuner is still not working for you, please give us a call at 800-248-7427 to speak with a Customer Service Representative about the issue so we can talk through some solutions. Thanks!

My Middle School Orchestra classes use this tuner during the noisy process of preparing for class. I have 5 tuners for a class of 20. The display is clear and simple to use. It clips to the scroll of the violin and viola and to the bridge of the cello and bass. Pizzicato works best. Basses need to use octave harmonic with a quick arco bow. Durability is good, but MS students are able to "loose" the rubber feet and the clips can break of after it is dropped several times.
