Gearank Recommendation

The ST-8 appeared on our recommended list for Clip-On Guitar Tuners from November 2019 until July 2022 when it was removed due to being out-ranked by other models.


The Snark ST-8 is versatile clip on tuner that works for various acoustic instruments.

It is attached to the headstock and captures pitch via the vibration of your instrument, and lets you tune to standard or flat tuning. It can also be transposed in case you need to calibrate your guitar to another instrument.

Another nifty feature is its built-in metronome, which makes this good for practice as well.

Finally, the Snark ST-8 has a rotating display so you can get a good view of the tuner regardless of your height or playing position.

With its price tag and flexibility, the Snark ST-8 is a good tuner for multi-instrumentalists who want an affordable and discrete clip-on tuner.
