Sage Wisdom

"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

February 26, 2011 | New budget Snark Tuner! Introducing the SN5.

We're getting the cart WAY ahead of the horse, but the company that brought you the epically popular Snark Chromatic Tuner, is introducing a new streamlined (translate "less expensive") SN5 tuner designed for guitar, bass, and violin.

Of course, we'd like to say they were designed for mandolin.

Unlike the SN1 & SN2 clamp-on at $29 and $39 respectively, and their sister SN3 & SN4 handheld versions, these will carry a lower list price of $19. Expect the street price to be under $10, plus handling. Players rave about how responsive these are, and how easy to read. These will also be encased in a more subtle black finish:


SN-5 Features:

  • Fast and ultra accurate tuning

  • Full color display

  • Fully chromatic

  • Display rotates 360 Degrees for optimum viewing

  • Clip stays where you put it

Look for these to be available from your favorite stores, starting April. (We might even carry them here in the JazzMando Merchandise Center.)
