StroboClip HD
Confusing to use since flat and sharp directions are not easy to understand.

I bought two of these stroboclips because they were on sale, replacing an aging snark.
I use them on my 4 and 5 string, fretted and fretless bass guitars.
I find the tuning display un-intuitive and confusing. I usually tune the wrong way when there strange river of shapes is moving, so I often waste time. I've tried setting the intonation on my basses with it, but again, having to think which way is flat and which is sharp.
It would've been better to have some sign showing flat or sharp, as well as a cue that shows when the string is actually in tune.
Lucky for me I paid $25 a pop for these, had I paid full price I would have certainly returned the tuners, since the UI isn't doing it for me.
The tuner itself is robust, the display is bright, and it tracks low B strings well, the display choices by Peterson really ruin it for me, and often perplex fellow bandmates when they need to quickly borrow the tuner.
