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.

  • 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
  • Designed by Ned Steinberger

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

The D'Addario Micro Headstock Tuner is so compact it can be left attached to an instrument's headstock at all times, even with the instrument in a tight-fitting case. The reversible readout allows the tuner to be mounted either above or below the peg-head. The CR2032 battery is commonly available but can be pricy if bought locally (look online for those). The tuner doesn't seem to have an auto shutoff feature (or maybe I just don't wait long enough), so remember to turn it off after tuning.
The price of the D'Addario Micro Headstock Tuner through Woodwind & Brasswind is so good I keep one on every instrument; 10 and counting (plus several given as gifts).
