The CT16 attaches securely to the headstock of your guitar or bass, as well as a variety of other stringed and wind instruments, for hands-free tuning. A dual 360° ball-jointed clip stems from the rear of the tuner, allowing you to view the display at any angle. In addition, the tuner’s design includes a large LCD display for quick tuning in any lighting environment. Whether you’re in a well-lit studio or on a dark stage, the CT16’s display makes all of the tuner’s functions easy to read.

With the goal of keeping your instruments sounding performance-ready at all times, the CT16 is packed with comprehensive tuning capabilities. Based on a piezo sensor that calibrates by vibration, the tuner supports a wide range of calibration from A 410 to 450Hz, while its smooth, real-time display provides precise and accurate tuning. The tuner offers chromatic, guitar, bass, violin, ukulele C and ukulele D tuning modes. In addition, the CT16 also features a flat/drop tuning/transposition setting that allows you to easily tune down your instrument. Powered by an included single CR2032 battery, the CT16 provides over 20 hours of continuous operation.

yes would buy again


great product for guitar or bass -fast tuner"



Great display and works great, seems like clip is backwards.


As you can see in the display photo on the front of a strat headstock it is still angled outward. when clipped on the back of the headstock the display is upside down. Would work best for left handed players.
