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 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.

          I never write reviews , but I really like this product. I always hated the way clip on tuners stick up from the headstock. Looks terrible. Also makes them prone to breaking off. These folks had the great idea to make it so the tuner hugs the back of your headstock. Very discreet. Appears to be very accurate. So inexpensive I was able to buy two so that I can keep one permanently on each guitar I use the most. It remains to be seen how durable they are in the long run, but so far so good.

              I love these little tuners, they work well and stay put. I clip them on the headstock of every guitar so I'm never without one. I've seen other tuners go flying with an energetic player, but these stay put. Great value for the price.

                I play and teach Classical and Acoustic Guitar for over 43 Years. I have used every type that's out there.
                These are so accurate and lay so close to the head stock I never take it off. I buy and give them to students because it helps them learn ear training by tuning but it helps them set Metronome Marking Times. It has an adjustable Blinking Metronome ( silent ) that is the intent. My Students always arrive in tune or they immediately tune very quick so we can go into the lesson time. I use in in my home recording studio. These are for Acoustic instruments, I tune the Mandolin, or Violin or Cello, Bass, Guitar- But not for electrics. They do not transmit enough vibration up the neck to detect the string frequency for that USE a TC Polytune

                      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.
