I was wondering if it would be any use getting one of these tuners that tune by the vibrations, like the Snark clip-on ones. At the moment I use my phone, but I haven’t got a pick-up, so was looking into that when I saw the vibration tuners and thought maybe that would be an alternative.
I don’t know where I’d clip it where I would be able to see it while I was tuning. I guess you must have to keep moving it? Can you clip it to the metal plate on the neck? (not sure of the exact name). That’s the only place I can think of that I might be able to see it when tuning most of the strings at least.
And as a total aside, when I was looking on the accessories pages of some sites for tuners, I came across something called “rear shoe inserts”, and I am just curious what they are actually for as I don’t understand the description of it balancing the harp in playing position or when that would be used.
