NAMM 2024: Guitar tuning brand Snark has set out to nullify “the enemy” of clip-on tuners with its latest model, the ST-8 Titanium. It builds on its best-selling tuner, the Titanium, with key features we didn’t even realize that clip-on tuners had been lacking until now.

The first new feature to catch the eye is its rubber ‘sound shield’ that cushions the back of its interface. The addition of the vulcanized rubber collar helps cut out unwanted external frequencies and their vibrations, meaning it should provide reliable tuning accuracy in even the noisiest of environments.
