    Comments about Planet Waves Pw-Ct-12 Ns Micro Headstock Tuner:

    Best clip on tuner I've tried, hands down. Has precise tuning, east to operate, takes up little space on the guitar, and you can just leave it in place. I liked it so much I bought one for each guitar that I own.

            This tuner is great! It's accurate, and small enough to leave on the headstock of my mandolin while playing, and in the case. This is the second one I've bought, and only because my dog chewed the other one!

                Comments about Planet Waves Pw-Ct-12 Ns Micro Headstock Tuner:

                I really like that you can place this thing to not be so obvious in appearance. It works great but every once in a while, the placement can be a little problematic. Your guitar stand may knock it off if you place it too close to the nut. On my Seagull, I moved it down to the end and it worked great. I wish it would turn off when not in use a little sooner, but still, for headstock tuners, this is the only brand I use.

                    I was expecting...not this. I was pleasantly surprised by the functionality and ease of use.

                    I opened up the package, engaged the battery, placed it on my guitar, pushed the power button and that's it. Worked flawlessly.

                    Comments about Planet Waves Pw-Ct-12 Ns Micro Headstock Tuner:

                    I originally bought this for my ukulele which is really just for fun with my nieces and nephews. This thing is so great I knew I needed one for each guitar. It's no strobe tuner but it is in line or better than most other clip on tuners and a fraction of the cost. You know you're getting a great product from D'addario so no worries there. They are small so I did already lose one, (doh!) so really just keep it clipped on your instrument, I just bought three more and intend to grab a few more for my other guitars and basses so then I won't lose it transferring it around to different instruments.

                    I prefer tuners that just have a chromatic range, I can figure out which string I'm tuning, but if you need one that tells you which string you're on this isn't it.
