OVERVIEW

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
  • Tunes acoustic and electric guitars, basses, mandolins, banjos and other stringed instruments

I ordered some more PlanetWaves headstock tuners and these came instead---they're apparently newer/updated models. Still compact, unobtrusive and accurate. The compact design might limit visibility with some placements but it surely contributes to keeping the unit out of harm's way and accidental damage. Small enough to leave on you axe when you put it to bed in its case. They work just as well as the original version with theses added/updated features: (1) Metronome (visual) function, (2)Display "flip" function (useful!), and (3) an easier to use clamp/clip. The battery compartment is, however, more difficult to open than the original version---you may need a pair of needle-nose pliers to apply the proper amount of squeeze and pull to release the battery holder. The good news is that I've been using my original ones daily, for months, and have yet to replace the battery.

This is the first tuner if this type I've used and it works great in the home or where ever there isn't much ambient noise, but it's definitely not a good stage tuner. It picks up every noise on stage, which makes for a difficult time trying to retune during a performance. I found myself having to wait for a quiet moment then hurriedly tuning whichever string was out. For home use, it works well, just not on stage.

        Works great on my bass guitar headstock. The display is easy to read and the low profile keeps it from looking unsightly. The metronome is a nice added feature.

          How much more simple can tuning get than using this tuner? No weird looking gismos hovering over your headstock like a vulture. No micro tuner necks getting hit and snapped off right before you start playing. Plu-perfect! Wish I'd invented this.

              Does what it claims to do. I've been using a Snark SN8B and I've been happy with the tuning performance of it. But I've also broken a few as they are a bit gangly and tend to be in harm's way the way they stick out of the headstock. The NS Micro Headstock Tuner's tuning performance is completely comparable to the Snark's, but is much more compact. I've been using it on a Martin 000-15m and a Fender Blacktop Jaguar, and it blends into the headstock on both of these very nicely. The clamp is tight and confidence-inspiring. And there's no need to remove it when placing the guitar in a hard case (as the Snark requires). It's completely tucked in, and out of harm's way. I highly recommend this tuner.

                  This is a Useful, albeit small tuner. The small size does make them unobtrusive. I just leave them on my guitars and they're there when needed.

                    Great little tuner. Sensitive and accurate. Small enough that you can keep it on and it still fits the ukulele case. I have 3 of these so far.

                        Geat little tuner. Clips on and is barely noticeable even on a tele headstock. Definitely going to buy a couple more for some other guitars. I love the convenience of having the tuner right there when you need it!
