Answer:
According to Snark's website, the ST-2 has a mic and vibration sensor, the ST-8 appears to be vibration only, the ST-8Hz adds Hertz Tuning for 1/10th of 1 Hz Accuracy. The ST-2 replaces the SN-2, the ST-8 replaces the SN-8, etc. They do still show the originals on their website.

Answer:
Sometimes you have to tune up or down to the Lead Snark's Snarkiness range and get a reference before it can measure true Snarkiness.

Answer:
It will work on a trumpet, using either mode. I use one everyday, and it works fine. Those who are saying it only works on guitar are wrong.

Answer:
This is from the Snark instructions that come in the packaging: "To set the Snark to another tuning reference, push the round "PITCH CAL" button on the back side of the tuner and immediately press either the up or down triangular buttons to choose a new tuning reference. The pitch reference can be set anywhere from 41… see more This is from the Snark instructions that come in the packaging: "To set the Snark to another tuning reference, push the round "PITCH CAL" button on the back side of the tuner and immediately press either the up or down triangular buttons to choose a new tuning reference. The pitch reference can be set anywhere from 415-466Hz." This would allow you to choose A-432. see less This is from the Snark instructions that come in the packaging: "To set the Snark to another tuning reference, push the round "PITCH CAL" button on the back side of the tuner and immediately press either the up or down triangular buttons to choose a new tuning reference.

Answer:
a buddy of mine has one of these, a gift from his girlfriend (i've got no idea which model but i can't find any difference between them apart from the color plastic they used lol), and we use it all the time before shows so we didn't have to stand there like idiots tuning while the audio engineers do their sound checks… see more a buddy of mine has one of these, a gift from his girlfriend (i've got no idea which model but i can't find any difference between them apart from the color plastic they used lol), and we use it all the time before shows so we didn't have to stand there like idiots tuning while the audio engineers do their sound checks. we played in drop b or drop a, i don't remember which we used for shows, but we used everything from drop c to drop f during rehearsals. we still had to go down to b at the very least even with higher tunings, he used a 7 string and my main axe at the time was a six string bass.

if anything, i reckon this thing would have had an easier time with the lower notes. i had a custom set of strings made for that axe that was basically a medium-heavy set with the b string swapped out with an obese .175 gauge tapered core string, i nearly had to bust out a file to make it fit. it shakes the guitar so violently that you'd think it has parkinson's disease. UNISDR called me last week and said i was only allowed to play it for one hour a week because i was causing earthquakes in china. a couple of years ago some dude who lives down the street from me got a big ol' hole poked into the roof of his garage when a huge tree limb fell off of the pine tree in his front yard, i had to pay for the damages. see less

Answer:
Yes, I believe it would be the best choice. The ST-2 is an all instrument tuner. I hope this was helpful.

Answer:
It is chromatic, so it will work on pretty much any instrument as long as it can detect the vibration. The brand of guitar will make no difference. It works on guitars, basses, mandolin, and banjo. Thanks for your interest.
