I had read other reviews before I bought this tuner. I was really surprised at how small this was but was surprised at how well it worked. I would have probably rated it 5 stars but it is really sensitive. If you pluck a string somewhat hard it doesn't register the string being in tune. But for the price and now knowing how to use it by plucking the string lighters it works well. Nice to have a spare in the case.

I'm a guitar player, and I find that having a headstock tuner, especially for practice/rehearsals, is a quick and convenient tuning option. I already had a Planet Waves PW-CT-10 NS Headstock Tuner, and I love it, but I wanted something a bit more compact.

I ordered one of these along with one the Planet Waves NS Micro Headstock Tuners. Both work fine, as I expected, but this one is just clunky. It does plenty of bends and twists, so you can make it fairly unobtrusive, but for a guitar, it just seems that the big alligator clip is cumbersome.

So take this device for what it is: a *universal* tuner. Get it if you need it for some other type of instrument. For guitar, go with the plain NS Micro. They're basically the same tuner, except this one has a lot of unnecessary hardware if you're a guitar player.

      My preferred tuner

      Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves NS Micro Universal Clip-On Tuner:

      My preferred tuner. Great display, very accurate, highly adjustable, works on the broadest number of instruments, and smallest profile. Yet another example of Ned Steinberger's incomparable design work. No matter the instrument or accessory, the NS brand never fails to delight.

                  I slap this on the head of my Hofner Bass and tune up and play. I don't have to wait for quiet or some other band member to plunk a note. Plus, this is so much easier to use than the plug in tuners.

                      Love this tuner, so much easier than what I was using. My only difficulty is that the clamp is not deep enough to fit properly on my Ovation guitar. I am always afraid it will fall off.

                                I bought this as a replacement for my 12-year old son. He started taking guitar in Middle school this year, and lost his original.

                                This is very small. I gave him a old digital camera case to keep it in. It fits perfect. It's a very nice unit.

                                      The telescoping arm that has been added to this model makes it very versatile for use on various headstocks and much easier to place and still have a clear view of the display. I own several NS Micro tuners and they are consistently accurate with long battery life. Reasonably priced, fast shipping and a quality product add up to a very satisfying experience.

                                      So you clip it to your headstock. Turn it on. You get blink-blink-blink-blink....strike a note....blink-blink-blink-blink....tune the note down or just let it ring a few seconds and the tuner responds with a letter, let's say "A" then if you don't start tuning it goes back to blink-blink-blink-blink. Annoying.

                                        Unobtrusive, but a screen that's big enough to see easily.

                                        not easy no read, nor intuitive to use, buy a Snark instead

                                            I attempt to tune acoustic guitars with this device, but find using the piano is quicker and easier. I do not recommend you buy this poorly designed tuner/

                                              I wanted a clip on tuner to easily tune my acoustic 12 string and this does the job nicely. It is also back up for my inline tuner.
