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):

    After buying one to try out I ordered the 2 pack so I wouldn't have to switch between guitars so much. I like the display, it's easy to see and that you can calibrate it, that makes it easy to tune down a half note which comes in handy for vocals and bending notes.

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

      Nice compact unit; Easy to Use; sometimes gets confused and slow to respond when other instruments are tuning. At the Bluegrass JAM we may have up to 20 players within a 25 ft radius circle. When everyone starts tuning or playing at the same time the unit is sometimes slow to respond because my instrument is picking up resonance from other instruments close by, this is not the tuners fault. In a solo setting, at home, the tuner is responsive and works great. I recommend searching out the two-pack for a better deal in price. I have three of these tuners now, they're fixed to my stringed instruments for convienence. This is a Good little tuner, don't be fooled by the size. Don't leave home without one!!!

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

      It having Di'adarrip branded on the unit, obviously means it's gonna do the job. I purchased a pair and I am considering buying a few more pairs... I teach guitar at Columbia Arts Academy, Columbia, S.C. And for the price, the fact that it works well, it's not hard to operate, it's small enough you can leave one on each of your guitars, for me, I can use it as a great incentive to give to students..

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

        I'm so glad I stumble across these, I was actually looking at the korg sledgehammer, but after a few reviews showing it rattling and buzzing I quickly lost interest. I did see korg has addressed this in the korg sledgehammer pro or something like that but instead of an up charge and adding pro to the title why not fix the first product. Not a korg hater used them exclusively for the last fifteen years plus, just sad in the quality of these clip ons. Now on to the NS micro it's so tiny but not in a bad way, the screen is so big it almost takes up the whole unit. Had concerns on the clip but once I put it on my first guitar couldn't be simpler really a one handed operation, the clip is a plastic ratchet so only time will tell if it last but the plastic does seem strong and holds tight. Easy to use on different guitars from twelve string acoustic to strat.

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

              I love these tuners! They work very well to help keep all of my guitars and bass in tune at all times. The main reason that I would recommend these tuners is because they are so small and inexpensive, that I bought one for every guitar and bass that I own. I just leave them on the headstock perminently, so I never have to go looking for a tuner no matter what guitar I'm playing. The one thing I will say negative is that when using it with a bass, the B string (5 string bass) and sometimes E string have trouble searching for a reading on the tuner. I find it helps to pluck the string at around the 3rd fret or so instead of down by the pickups when the tuner has trouble searching for a reading. Get these tuners for all of your guitars and just leave them on the headstock. You'll be glad you did.

                Thought I was buying only one at this price. Pleasantly surprised at two! The small size means I don't have to take them off my 6 & 12 string guitars. The rotating head piece allows you to tune up without being a contortionist. Very quick and easy to use.
