I generally use a Korg handheld to tune if playing inside. However, I find the micro-clip on really handy if playing outside or where it’s drafty, in order to quickly check the tuning. It’s also handy to check intonation issues.
Kenny I love my tuner , like John says you can tune while noise is going on very handy and it’s always right there when you need it ! I never take it off except to clean and polish the fiddle , It doe’s not get in the way putting the fiddle back in the case !
