The Best Clip-on Tuner for Classical Guitar

Guitar TunersReview: D’Addario Planet Waves NS Micro Tuner Clip-On.
Small and compact, I never take this tuner off the guitar. I’ve had it on there for over a year. Works great, only $11. Metronome is only visual which could be useful for some applications, I never use it. Not great for taking on and off quickly but just leave it on anyway. Buy or learn more via Amazon: NS Micro Tuner

  1. I have this for all my guitars and second this is a great tuner! It’s small and discreet and fairly accurate. Especially helpful in tuning in noisy situations.
