The StroboClip brings the features of their original models in a small package. It’s a combination of stainless steel and plastic and feels strong, with plenty of pivot points for easy viewing, regardless of the headstock. Powered by a small coin cell watch-type battery, its orange LCD display is plenty bright, even out in the sun. It also has several modes, optimized for a variety of stringed instruments; guitar, bass, dobro, lap steel, ukulele, mandolin, violin, sitar, lute, oud. It can even cover brass and woodwind instruments as well as bagpipes. For guitarists it can also work with the Buzz Feiten tuning system, as well as in capo mode.

For guitarists or even multi-instrumentalists who use a lot of alternate tunings and or a capo, a convenient clip-on tuner is a must. The StroboClip can fill any portable electronic tuning needs.

    “Cons: none” yeah, right. I don’t think so. I have one, it is the most versatile clip on tuner out there. But it is _very_ susceptible to interference from other electronics. It actually works best outside. This isn’t just my tuner, they all work this way. It reads the wrong note quite often. There is a learning curve to this tuner depending on what instrument your using. I play instruments that are tuned to pure intervals, like the violin family, oud and other fretless instruments. It’s great that the tuner has settings for these instruments. But, it does take quite a bit longer to use this tuner.
