Default My Peterson StroboClip will never go camping with me again...

I feel like I've been living under a rock...




In my best Andy Taylor voice (gotta love MeTV)...

Quote:
I'm think I'm gonna git 'nother one for my gone visitin' guitar 'swell. I done checked it against the Peterson and it's dern near close 'nough fer everthin'. Well, everthin' maybe 'cept a proper recordin' up in Raleigh.


Full disclosure: I did have to remove the metal clip and bend it a bit to insure a tight fit. I guess, also, I never considered taking my ceder top Seagull camping; I've only just recently bought my first "camping guitar".

I find them to be the easiest tuner to use. I have one for every guitar.

I like where you're going with this. I think a tuning fork maintains it's pitch over time better than a pipe, though. In either case I image getting either is similar to purchasing another "instrument" and all the caveats regarding quality and expense would apply.

If you want to be cool, you use a tuning fork. It is surprising how easy they are to use - as long as it is quiet around you.

I have these in two guitars and they are very convenient and you never leave them behind by accident as I have with Snarks and Petersons.

But they are a pale competitor to a Peterson for sure. They are useful on a camping trip, I suppose, or if you have left your Peterson behind, but I almost always find them fussy and marginally accurate IMHO.
