Tunes a wide variety of stringed instruments without drawing attention to itself.

Designed in conjunction with Ned Steinberger, the Planet Waves NS Mini Headstock Tuner precisely tunes a wide variety of stringed instruments in a compact, lightweight, and easy-to-use design. The highly sensitive piezo transducer and backlit display allow for smooth and highly accurate tuning in noisy, dim or well-lit environments, where other tuners fail. The compact design allows the tuner to hide effortlessly behind the headstock, concealing it from your audience and allowing it to remain mounted on the instrument inside most cases.

Featuring a 360° swivel mechanism and adjustable padded clamp, the NS Mini offers optimal viewing angles and maximum positioning flexibility. As a result, the NS Mini is equally at home on left and right-handed instruments as well as on small and large headstocks, making it the ideal choice for the widest variety of players and instruments, from 5-string bass to Ukulele. The NS Mini also features an easy-to-read color changing backlit display which is easily seen on dark stages or in direct sunlight. Maximum battery life is provided by the auto-off function, shutting the tuner off automatically after several minutes to preserve the life of the CR2032 battery (included).

Powered by the latest version of the highly praised and super accurate Planet Waves Headstock tuner software, the NS Mini also offers adjustable calibration between 430 Hz and 450 Hz for use in a wide variety of playing situations.


  • Low-profile compact design hides behind the headstock, concealed form the audience - leave one on every instrument!
  • Ultra-sensitive piezo pickup provides extremely accurate chromatic tuning based on vibration, no sound or cable input required
  • Innovative 360 degree swivel and adjustable ratchet mechanisms for versatile placement on both both left- and right-handed instruments
  • Easy-to-read color changing display performs in well-lit & dark environments
  • Accurately tunes a wide range of instruments, from 5-string bass to ukulele

Comments about Planet Waves PW-CT-12 NS Mini Headstock Tuner:

I have three of these; they are excellent tuners and very inconspicuous. I recommend them highly if you want a tuner that is quick and accurate. The only issue/fault is the clip; I feel it is a bit weak; the plastic could be a bit more sturdy.

Comments about Planet Waves PW-CT-12 NS Mini Headstock Tuner:

I really like them. I don't think the clip will take a lot of off & on moves, if adjusted too tight, but adjusted properly and left in place has been working nicely , I went back and ordered 2 more for my bandmates Christmas presents
