    I bought a relic'd guitar because I liked the way it sounded. Then I refinished it because I didn't like the way it looked.

    Well I start with the tuner--but sometimes need to fine tune with my ears--or if playing with an acoustic piano--you may need to forgo the tuners & use your ears.

    when I was starting playing guitar, I trained my ears to tune with a keyboard. never needing a tuner until I learned how to setup a guitar. I cant use my ear for intonation! but for general guitar playing, I am fine with my ears. I do have an app in my phone as well. I also have three tuners, two small, mobile ones where it has an input jack that I can plug my guitar in and tune, and a tuner on my pedal board.

    Certainly if I am just playing on my own at home I use my ears most of the time--but a Snark makes it easier to check that way as well.

    Well the 2 ST-2's I just ordered arrived yesterday. Other than the display and some other visuals I can't see much difference between that and the SN-2. Needs some getting used to- I think I like the SN-2 more but we'll see how I feel in a week or so.

    Quick update- my daughter used the ST-2 with her trumpet on the weekend and she said that she found it much more responsive than the SN-2. That is probably the big difference.

    It certainly is possible a different tuner fits a different instrument (&/or different musician) better--so it's a good thing there are different ones available.

    I have to do a head to head comparison of the SN-2 vs. ST-2 to see if I see the same thing
