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

Auto-off, tiny, great - 2 for 1 price

By John

from Indianapolis, IN

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves NS Micro Headstock Tuner (2-Pack):

This tiny contact tuner works great, and you get the 2-pack for almost the same price as a single unit. Auto-off function and tiny size made it an easy choice to go with my 11-yr-old's new violin. He won't have to worry about whether he shut it off (no accidental battery drain), as it powers off after about 10 minutes. It fits easily in violin case's small storage compartment when not in use, and to use it, he just clips it to the top of the scroll and turns the display so he can see it while tuning. I clipped the second tuner onto the head of my acoustic guitar, and it's so small that it can stay clipped on the headstock all the time now, even while g's stored in its case. Digital display/readout can be flipped with a press of a button, adjustable clip allows for fairly wide range of width, and the unit can be spun/twisted, all of which accommodates various mounting scenarios. Easy to change tuning frequency (readout for freq setting shows hz) if you want. When tuning, the notes appear as a large letter, with red, yellow, and green illustrating how close you are to being in tune for that particular note. Sharps are indicated, as well; no flats shown, but every flat is also a sharp of another note, so no biggie. Readout is big enough, especially with graduating colors and bars to clearly indicate tuning progress. Bought these a few weeks ago. Gonna buy another 2-pack of these to stick on my tele and bass.

Have tried these on several different string instruments- seem to work fine

By ron

from Flintville Tn

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves NS Micro Headstock Tuner (2-Pack):

Have used these for several weeks on acoustic guitars, Ukulele, and Banjo. Many tuners are confused by the banjo, but so far this one has provided consistent tuning. Very small and low profile, it stays tucked out-of-the way and is nearly invisible from the front. You can just leave this tuner on the instrument all the time, even when traveling. I've tried perhaps a dozen different clip-on tuners (and there are many bad ones out there that have become flaky or stopped working after a few weeks), but this one still seems to be the best I've used so far.

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves NS Micro Headstock Tuner (2-Pack):

Way smaller than anticipated. Works wonders though and GRIPS on your headstock. Say goodbye to your tuning pedal. I recommend the two pack so whenever the first one dies you won't have to carry around a pack of cell batteries with you. Plus, why not help your bassist out?

      Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves NS Micro Headstock Tuner (2-Pack):

      This is one of the most accurate tuners I've ever used and I really like that it can be hidden behind the guitar headstock with only the end of the clip showing. The one detriment, if using this on an acoustic guitar the control buttons rattle in the case and are amplified through the guitar. Ends up sounding like you have a fret buzz or buzzing nut slot or bridge slot. You will go crazy looking for where the issue is until you grab the tuner and realize that that stops the buzz. I wish they would fix this. The older style of this tuner did not have this problem.

      These small inconspicuous tuners are just great. Easy to read, accurate,and easy on the battery They are very affordable in the 2-pack, and I like them so well, I have them on all my guitars that don't have built in tuners. I bought these as extras to carry to gigs in case the battery starts going dead on the one I'm using. Best tuner for the price, period.

      Great little tuners, and they clip onto the neck. I think they are way more accurate than the popular Snarks'. And you get 2 in the pack. Surprised they don't sell them in the store. A must have....

          Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves NS Micro Headstock Tuner (2-Pack):

          First didn't like them much. But after a week of using seems doing a good job. I just left them on the guitars and no more switching, is a plus. By the way compare to two other tuners that I have it seems to be more sensitive to location. For best result try to find the right spot on your guitar. I just found out by calling Planet wave,that the green flashing light is normal. It's just letting you know that the tuner is on.one more thing I noticed is my fingers wouldn't let me see the screen while I was trying to tune the 4th and 5th (D,A)strings when tuner is installed in the back. Size matters .5 stars because I still liked them.

          This tuner is easy to use and small enough to leave on the head of the guitar when performing. It's great for beginning guitarists, so they can learn to tune their guitar on their own, easily. NS Micro tuner is the best, in my opinion.

          Tiny, almost invisible tuner

          Verified Buyer

          Comments about NS Micro Headstock Tuner (2-Pack):

          These are great little tuners! I have now equipped all my guitars and ukuleles with these. They are practically invisible, even if you are forced to put them on the front of the guitar. The visual metronome is a nice feature.

          They can be a little slow to respond sometimes and the unit will sort of blank out and then "re-find" the note. Not sure what it's doing when it does that, but it's really not that much of an issue. I find that it responds better to Ukuleles and Classical guitars than to my 335. I think the classical and Ukulele are just passing more vibrations up the neck into the headstock where the tuner sits which translates to better/quicker tone analysis.

          The small size and invisibility and usability far outweigh these slight "speed" issues, in my opinion.
