Sage Wisdom

"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

April 3, 2015 | D'Addario PW-CT-10 Headstock Tuner Reboot.

Our favorite mandolin tuner remains the D'Addario NS Micro PW-CT-12 clip-on headstock tuner. It's stealth form and adjustable display makes it ideal for discreet tuning behind the back of the headstock, but for bigger instruments like mandocello or tenor guitar, the newly released and larger PW-CT-10 is a great solution. The display is larger and less challenging on the eyes for the bifocal crowd.

This is a new incarnation of the original five year-old version, and packed with vast improvements and advances in technology. It sets up quickly and is highly responsive.

The tuner features a flip-up display that automatically powers the tuner on when opened and off when closed. The 360 degree rotatable display allows for use on right-handed and left-handed instruments and can be moved to optimum viewing position in use, and closed position for storage in the case. We leave it on the instrument at all times.

The $29.99 MAP pricing is a bit ambitious compared to other tuners on the market, but considering its features and benefits, the PW-CT-10 is still a good investment.
