Some Amazon reviews about the new Peterson mention its clip will barely fit on a classical headstock.
That's true, but it does fit, just not in a mid-range position for the clamp.

Thanks, all...found the older topic which was also helpful.
Is the Peterson StroboClip HD really worth the extra money? Is the guitar that much better in tune?
It is for me, but I am probably weird :D I just couldn't stand any tuners I tried until I bought this one (have both the old and the new model) - now my guitar is finally sufficiently in tune for my ears.

I did not like the Peterson tuner, not because it was inaccurate it ,is very accurate, but I don't need a guitar tuner with the learning curve of a new cell phone!

I have the older version of Peterson StroboClip. It is the most accurate that I have encountered (against the large Peterson's model). Definitely overkill for most people. A worthwhile use for such accuracy is to evaluate the intonation of your guitars at all frets.

Any one here used a Korg Pitchcrow? http://www.korg.com/se/products/tuners/pitchcrow_g/

This seems to offer a strobe mode in an inexpensive package. Does it work on a nylon string guitar?
