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

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.

    This tuner is very inconspicuous when clipped on my my bass. It works well enough. I only wish the battery lasted longer.

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

    The D'Addario Micro Headstock Tuner is so compact it can be left attached to an instrument's headstock at all times, even with the instrument in a tight-fitting case. The reversible readout allows the tuner to be mounted either above or below the peg-head. The CR2032 battery is commonly available but can be pricy if bought locally (look online for those). The tuner doesn't seem to have an auto shutoff feature (or maybe I just don't wait long enough), so remember to turn it off after tuning.
    The price of the D'Addario Micro Headstock Tuner through Woodwind & Brasswind is so good I keep one on every instrument; 10 and counting (plus several given as gifts).

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

        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!

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

          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.
