We just can’t do without what is arguably the most important and indispensable accessory a guitarist can buy, the guitar tuner. The most popular without doubt, is the clip-on headstock tuner, with Snark setting the trend as the industry standard.
From the Snark range of innovative and exciting designs, the Snark ST-8HZ ‘Super Tight’ Chromatic All-Instrument Tuner, is questionably the world’s best-selling clip-on tuner and the favourite choice for players who require a powerful, fast and extremely accurate headstock tuner.
Headstock tuners haven’t been around all that long, so you don’t have to be a real old school player to remember that they gained popularity around the mid 90’s, whilst said players were at the time, aghast at what was surely just a passing trend and horrified at the thought of a window of lights on their guitar headstocks.
Fast forward a couple of decades to where Snark have now sold gazillions of tuners around the globe, specifically designed for any instrument with a headstock, whether that’s electric, acoustic, classical, bass, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, violin or upright bass.
The best-selling Snark ST-8HZ ‘Super Tight’ Chromatic All-Instrument Tuner is itself, a winner in every department with high speed-chip technology that immediately recognises separate notes and strings with hertz accuracy.
This offers two super-tight tuning modes, conventional fast-response auto note display with stable and accurate graduation or, engage the Hertz Tuning button for pin-point, precision accuracy within the ST-8HZ’s Hz frequency scale, calibrated between 415 – 466Hz.
You don’t have to have perfect pitch to find an out-of-tune instrument painful on the ears, played solo or within the context of a band. Either way, it can ruin a recording or live gig, especially for acoustic guitar players. Not everyone is pitch perfect and, unless you have adequate foldback monitors or a decent in-ear monitoring system, you may not be aware of the sonic damage that’s happening to your live performance
…step up to the line Snark.
The ball-joint housing of the bright, coloured, high resolution LCD screen, allows a full 360-degree rotation. Easy on the eye and ideal for left-handed guitarists or players who prefer to read the display from the rear of the headstock. Working purely on vibration and without the need for leads, or onboard microphones that pickup background noise, tuning during a performance or whilst chatting to the audience is effortless.
Capo users can also breathe a sigh of relief, as the ST-8HZ has a transpose feature which is invaluable for guitar players using a capo, and in addition, can be calibrated to instruments with a fixed pitch like an acoustic piano for example.
With a killer black satin finish, it’s not hard to understand why Snark’s ST-8HZ ‘Super Tight’ Chromatic All-Instrument Tuner is so popular and can be found in so many guitar cases, in bedrooms, studios and on tour buses around the globe.
For ease of use, it doesn’t get any better than the Snark ST-8HZ ‘Super Tight’ Chromatic All-Instrument Tuner, whilst the performance can be compared to rack system tuners many times the price, the benefits continue to speak for themselves.
Without doubt, Snark ST-8HZ is one of the best selling clip-on tuners in the world, with all your tuning needs covered in one extremely fast and accurate package and should be on all musicians’ Christmas list.
