|NEW! Planet Waves Summer NAMM release of their Mini Headstock Tuner|
|Planet Waves NEW Mini Headstock Tuner|
The new Mini Headstock Tuner still uses the red to green indicator to tell you when "you're there" but it is so small, it can rest nearly unnoticed on your headstock. No need to remove it!
UPDATE: We tested this tuner in the studio on a Martin HD-28 acoustic which is a very loud and powerful guitar. Martins are known for their booming lows which causes some tuners not to read the low E at all. This wasn't a problem with this tuner and both the high and low E's were easily detected.
Once you adjust the clip to the width of the headstock, there is really no need to take it off the instrument. Just keep in mind that you'll be looking at the underside of the headstock to read it. Not a problem because the LED lit screen is very bright and clear. It also automatically turns off after a set time if no signal is detected which will save battery life. This tuner takes watch batteries but due to its size, you'll see why no other type would fit.
Some musicians prefer to see the actual note they are tuning to which is a plus with this tuner. Each note that registers is clear and bright with extra lines to tell you if you're going sharp or flat. Really I would recommend it being kept on the headstock as it is so small, it would be quite easy to leave behind!
