OVERVIEW

Two tuners with all the features of the NS Mini, and more, but in an even smaller size.

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

This item is very much improved over the previous model. I really like the streamlined compact design that doesn't stick out like a "sore thumb" off the headstock. Visually, it blends well with the headstock on my PRS SE Custom.

The D'Addario NS-Micro 2-pack is a really great idea because it was a pain swapping out a single tuner between my working guitar and my stay-at-home guitar. I guess I balked at getting a 2nd one previously because of these 2 things in particular that got fixed with this new design. With the old one, surface pressure from being jostled in the gig bag almost always either (1) turned it on & used up battery life, or (2) dislodged it from its bracket so I had to hunt for it & reconnect it . Neither of those situations has occurred yet with the new design. Plus, the display orientation is user changeable, so you can mount it on the front or back of the headstock & still read it correctly.

I haven't had a gig with this one out in sunlight yet, but I recall the old one being hard to see in sunlight. That's the reason I also use on BOSS TU-2 tuner on my pedalboard(PedalBoard Nano). I've found the new D'Addario NS-Micro Headstock Tuner to be as accurate as the TU-2, which is a good thing, if I decide to free up that TU-2 space on Pedalboard Nano for some other effect.

Overall, in my opinion, this D'Addario NS-Micro is probably the best Headstock Tuner available. Glad it's available in the 2-Pack.

I love and use everything D'Addario/Planet Waves makes EXCEPT this thing. It's the least sensitive tuner I've ever used! On guitar it takes forever to zero in on the pitch and on bass it reads nothing most of the time. Their last generation clip on tuner was great but they no longer make it. So I just ordered s Snark. We'll see....

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

    I already have a Planet Waves PW-CT-10 NS Headstock Tuner, and it works great, but I was looking for something a little more compact. This items nails it, and at the two-pack price, it's kind of a no-brainer. Tuning is easy and accurate, and these little guys ratchet-clip to your headstock and become almost invisible. Highly recommended.

        This really is a great little tuner. It's hidden away but easy to see. No problem recommending this tuner.

            I am using it with a mandolin so having it small is a big plus. It works great.

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

            I love these little tuners. I have five of them- one for each of my acoustic instruments. I just leave them on the headstock- for the price there's no need to look for a tuner each time you pick up your guitar, banjo or mandolin!

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

            I was hesitant to buy this two pack of tuners, but was extremely surprised and happy as to how well they work, especially for the price. From my acoustic and electric guitars, to my four string, six string and electric upright basses, this thing worked like a charm, even on the low B! It's practically invisible, too. Very easy to operate and so far doesn't seem to go through batteries very fast.

            I just bought two more. These are my favorites, I keep one with a fresh battery in the case and one on the headstock. They are sensitive enough to tune almost silently.

                I now use this tuner exclusively (3 guitars / 1 banjo).
                Snark is also very good, but just too big and clunky.
