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.

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves NS Micro Headstock Tuner:

    Like the older Planet Waves/D'Addario tuners, these work decently well. I haven't had too much problem with ambient noise interference, but they react a little slowly. That said, I put one on my acoustic guitar and tapped the headstock on a mic stand (yeah, I'm a little clumsy) and the tuner clip stripped and the tuner flew off. I retrieved it and tried to put it back on, but some teeth had stripped off of the clip and it won't tighten.
    They need to re-think the design. It's not rugged enough for stage use, in my opinion.

    Really good price. Works good. I haven't used it in a loud environment. Gotta be careful with this, it is very small and I need to be careful so I don't lose it. Price went up after I bought one. Still a good deal.

        I have 3 of these tuners now and I just leave them on any of my acoustic guitars that don't have a built-in tuner. Also I really love them because they're so small and very easy to use.

                  This is a great micro tuner, but this is the 3rd one I've bought two of the units the batteries die fast , one the clip broke pretty easily . Very accurate and easy to use but not sure if ts worth the price to keep replacing them or the batteries..

                      I am a left-handed guitar player, and tuners that clip on are usually like everything else in the guitar world, geared toward righty's. But this tuner is flexible, is solid, tuning is a breeze with it. It is small enough that I leave it clipped on my Taylor DN4e, so i'll be getting a few more for the old Guild D-40 and others.

                      It worked perfectly when I first turned it on. I turned it off and the next day, the battery was dead. This things is supposed to turn itself off even if you forget. So I buy another battery and it works perfectly. The next day the battery is dead again. I bought another battery and it happens again. This is a pain and a waste of money no matter what you pay. Don't buy one.
