The clip-on tuner is lightweight and very small, discretely attaching to the headstock of your guitar to get the job done without distracting you and your audience.
To create this compact tuner, D'Addario sought the help of Ned Steinberger, known for his ergonomic, compact and innovative instruments. The result of their collaboration is a fully functional clip-on tuner that is visible to the player but hidden from the view of the audience.
In contrast with the tuner's small size, the NS Micro packs in a lot of features. It piezo sensor system provides accurate tuning while the improved software offers faster note recognition when compared to previous generation tuners.
The small tuner also has an expanded calibration range, which allows it to work with a variety of tuning and musical instruments. It works well with electric, acoustic, classical and bass guitars, as well as other stringed instruments like mandolins, ukuleles, banjos and upright basses.
The small but efficient display works well in both lighted and dark-lit stages. It features a simple multi-color backlit screen that shows the name of the note in green when in tuner, or red when out of tune.
Rob Cunningham, Planet Waves Product Manager, said: “Living up to its reputation as one of the most innovative companies in the music product industry, D’Addario/Planet Waves is proud to accept the Best in Show Award for this new NS Micro Tuner, the next iteration in its family of clip-on, headstock tuners. Always striving to improve, we’re thrilled about this new iteration of Planet Waves’ clip-on tuner.”
The NS Micro Tuner is currently retailing for $32.99. For more information, go to Planet Waves.
