Overview

The NS Micro offers improved accuracy, faster response, expanded calibration range, visual metronome mode and an improved ratchet design. A highly sensitive piezo transducer and easy-to-read multi-color backlit display allow smooth and highly accurate tuning in noisy, dim or well-lit environments while the micro design and reversible screen allow the tuner to hide effortlessly behind or mount on the front side of the headstock allowing the tuner to remain clamped to the instrument inside most cases when stored. A 360-degree swivel mechanism and adjustable padded clamp offer optimal viewing angles and maximum positioning flexibility. As a result, the NS Micro is equally at home on left- and right-handed instruments as well as on small and large headstocks, making it an ideal choice for the widest variety of players and instruments. The NS Micro is powered by a readily available CR2032 battery (included) and provides maximum battery life utilizing an auto-off function, shutting the tuner off automatically after several minutes from power up.

FEATURES

  • Built-in piezo transducer picks up instrument's vibration rather than sound
  • Improved software for faster response and improved accuracy
  • Tri-color reversible backlit LCD screen makes it easy to tune in dark environments while allowing mounting in front or behind headstock
  • Wide calibration range (410Hz to 480Hz) and visual metronome
  • Compact design blends into the aesthetics of instrument while adding considerably less weight than other headstock tuners
  • Tunes acoustic and electric guitars, basses, mandolins, banjos and other stringed instruments
  • Designed by Ned Steinberger

What more could you want. It works perfectly on both my Gibson SG electric & my acoustic. It's bright enough & quick enough to be used on stage. There is small button on the back that flips the text around so you can use it mounted on the front or the back of the neck. Nice touch! My preference is to place it on the back of the neck so only the little plastic clip is visible. I can position it on both guitars so it's out of my way when I play & with a quick power on I can retune between songs very quickly & silently. Very happy with it. I'm buying a second one so I can leave it on both my guitars all the time.

This works great at home. And it tunes well. Just don't buy it expecting to play any shows with it.

With any sort of volume, including a crowd, it won't pick up notes. I've tried to use these at a few gigs, and had better results with my Snark. They work great at home, just not out live in a club.

    Tiny Package - Big Features!

    By Allen Ferry

    from Tacoma, WA

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves NS Micro Headstock Tuner:

    I purchased one of these puppies about a month ago, and I just can't say enough good things about it. The unit is highly accurate, easy to read and, is so small, you can even leave it on your headstock as I do between gigs. It doesn't get in the way and totally obscured from the view of your audience, while allowing immediate access and viewing to you, the musician. I recommend this great product to anyone who plays guitar (especially acoustic). Rock on D'Addario!

    ‰Û_get the 2-pack of these babies

    By John

    from Indianapolis, IN

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves NS Micro Headstock Tuner:

    Great tuner. Comes in a 2-pack, as well. The 2-pack's almost the same price as a single unit. So get the pack, and you can pop a tuner on a few guitars and leave them on, even when an instr is set back in its case. We use one with a violin, too, but we don't leave the tuner clipped on when putting the v away. Tiny size helps this tuner fit easily into v case's tiny storage compartments, and auto-off leaves no worries for accidentally draining battery.

      Discrete, economical and accurate. This thing is barely noticeable on the guitar and can make everyone think you can tune your guitar by ear. It makes it easy to keep it in tune.

      Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves NS Micro Headstock Tuner:

      Very cool tuner! Seriously, it's a better mousetrap! It's very unobtrusive...it doesn't "clip", it "ratchets down" to the back of your headstock (on my electric guitar). So I can see it, but the audience can't. Not that that's something that needs to be HIDDEN from the audience, but it's just cool that it can be that unobtrusive. But despite being small, it's VERY functional! You can flip the display so it displays right side up, no matter how you've got your tuner aligned. The on-off button is very easy to identify. It's got a built-in light metronome, which I haven't used yet, but it might prove useful sometime in a situation where you had to play a song at a very prescribed tempo, and someone in the band has to count that off. I really like the tuner! And it's really not very expensive!

            This is my absolute favorite tuner! I've used it for a few years now and I needed another one to go on my new Strat. Once you put it on your guitar headstock, you do not have to take it off. It stays put and it does not get in the way when you place your guitar in your gig bag or case. I love that part! I always know it's attached and ready to use. It can be a bit of a pain to remove and then put back on because of the slide mechanism, but once you attach it, it's great and extremely accurate! Highly recommended!

              The D'Addario NS Micro Headstock Tuner is Fantastic. It works perfectly and is simple to use. The multi color display is bright enough and easy to read. When mounted on the headstock of my F body Mandolin, it's unobtrusive and unnoticeable to anyone but me. There is no need to remove it when putting the instrument away in the case, unlike some other tuners. The Metronome feature is not an audio cue but only a visual flash on the tuner's display so I do not use that. If you are looking for a great Little Tuner at a good price, you found the right one. I have no complaints.
