Product Description

Style:Single Pack

The feature-packed tuner your audience will never see.

True to its name, the NS Micro Clip-On Tuner features a low-profile design that can barely be seen by the audience while the clear and bright display can be seen easily by the player. The highly compact design even allows the tuner to be kept on the guitar while stored in its case. At a stealthy 1.25 inches, it's the best performance they'll never see.

Upgraded Performance

The NS Micro boasts improved accuracy and note recognition from its 'Mini' predecessor. A wide calibration range (410-480) guarantees precise performance on each instrument. A visual metronome adds an additional practice tool.

Easy on the Eyes

The easy-to-read, Tri-Color backlit screen displays the note in red when out of tune, yellow when close, and green when in tune. This allows the player to accurately tune with a quick glance at the display - even on dark stages or in direct sunlight.

Ultimate Versatility

The NS Micro features a 360 degree swivel mechanism that allows the tuner to be equally effective on both left and right-handed guitars while the reversible screen allows mounting on either the front or back of the headstock. These features provide the optimal viewing angle on the widest array of guitars and instruments. A newly designed rubberized padded clamp ensures no damage is done to the instrument while in use.

Professional Accuracy Without Complications

The included CR2032 battery powers the unit for hours on end. The auto-off function preserves the battery by turning the tuner off after several minutes of no signal. A visual metronome provides the player with additional practice means.

Highly visible to the player yet concealed from the audience.

Style Name: Single Pack Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a very small and very unobtrusive tuner. There's a tiny clamp to attach it to the headstock and all that shows on the front of the guitar is an about one inch piece of black plastic.

Pros: Easy to use. Pluck the string. If it's off, the string letter turns up red with bars along the high or low side. Tune in the direction needed until there's one bar on each side of the string name-- like this-- lEl --and the string name turns green--and the E string is in tune. It's fast and easy. I compared it to a high priced clip on tuner and it was dead accurate. I removed the expensive one and left this one on, if that indicates anything.

Only one concern. The 'ratchet' mechanism that opens the thing to grip the headstock is all plastic and felt quite flimsy. There were also no instructions on how to open it properly. I was afraid I would break it putting it on and am still afraid it might not be durable for long.

I'll add to this review if it lasts or breaks...

Style Name: Single Pack Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a decent to good little tuner, but there are some drawbacks to it. Also, I have the other Planet Waves Chromatic Headstock Tuner to compare this one to. Here are the pros and cons of this tuner as I see them:

Pros:
- Super compact. Virtually invisible from the front of the guitar.
- Adjustable frequency settings.
- Top load battery. No need to unclip from the headstock to load in a fresh battery.

Cons:
- Awkward in use when not used on a inline six tuning peg headstock. I have a Gibson Les Paul and this tuner is awkward to use with it.
- Less gradation in setting than other tuners. The gradiation bars are thicker and fewer in number, giving less of a sense of how close you are to a perfect tuning.

Debatable:
- Clip mechanism: Not spring loaded. This means that this unit is really designed to stay clipped to your guitar.
- One battery: This unit takes only one battery versus two with the other.

When it boils down to it, I prefer my old planet waves tuner. It seems more accurate to me with the finer gradations (though both units gave roughly the same results when tuning - using both at the same time) and I like the ability to clip it on and off in a hurry. In fact I can easily recommend that tuner, main drawback is that that one eats batteries)

This tuner is more catered to Fender-style headstocks for players that plan on leaving the tuner clipped on. For those players, bump up this review to 4 or 4 and half stars. For others, I highly recommend the other planets waves tuner linked to in this review.

Style Name: Single Pack
I've been playing guitar more than 35 years and have used a lot of electronic tuners. The first was slightly larger than a paperback book and cost what a cheap guitar sells for today. But it was a godsend tuning up backstage while another band was playing. Over the years tuners have gotten smaller, cheaper, and easier to use. The Planet Waves PW-CT-12 is my new favorite.

It is very small - a little bit larger than a grape. Despite some of the other reviews I have used it with good results on a Strat, Tele, Les Paul, and ES-335 electrics and on acoustics from Martin, Gibson, National Resophonic, and Voyage Air. I clamp it on the headstock between the nut and the low-E tuner. I didn't expect it but it is out of the way enough to leave on while playing. Previous to this my favorite tuner was a chromatic ukulele tuner built to clamp on the top of the headstock. Small and accurate but to use it behind the headstock I have to read it upside down. The PW-CT-12 is nicely out of the way even when I play an F chord with my thumb on the low E string. It's so light I don't notice it's there.

The display is bright and easy to see in most light. A bit hard to read in direct sunlight but I do my best to avoid playing without shade anyway. The display is small - a dime can cover most of it - but the characters are large enough to read in normal playing position. The '#' sharp symbol is small but once you are familiar with the display you recognize it. (No flat symbol. Bb is displayed as A#.) The tuner has auto shutoff to make the battery last longer. The display uses bars to the side of the note letter and color to indicate tuning. It's red until you get close then green with a bar on each side when you are in tune (for example, |E|).

The NS Mini chromatic headstock tuner quickly recognized twelve pitches across a multi-octave range of electric bass, guitar and mandolin. The accidentals appear as sharps or flats toggled using the alternate functions of the frequency button.

The tuner's view window is slightly larger than a Chiclet but brightness and resolution are fine for dimly-lit spaces. One thing that's less than ideal is the charcoal color of the tuner itself. If you've ever dropped stuff on dark stages you know what I mean. I'd wager the back of most headstocks skew to lighter tones than darker, so if discretion is what the manufacturer is emphasizing, a lighter color may work better.

The notes appear red when out of tune; their color changes to green as a `rough marker'. You then continue fine tuning using the vertical bars that appear on both sides of the note. They've gone to lengths to make the tuner stage-friendly, but I'd much prefer the green color mean ` fine tuned and done'. That way I can look from a distance. I should only have to bother with the bars if I'm struggling to home in (and in my experience that's the exception rather than the rule and usually caused by: new strings, slack under the bridge pins, a slipping tuner, etc. Mid-life strings tend to stretch and loosen predictably, so long as you don't use a lot of altered tunings.

The NS is designed to be clipped discretely to your instrument headstock and viewed from the back. I'm a lefty and, unlike some other tuners, I appreciate the swiveling base that allows me to view the screen right-side up.

The viewer doesn't extend far above the headstock surface and felt a bit cramped on my L4 with large New Yorker-style tuners.
