D’Addario has announced a new compact headstock tuner, loaded with features. Their Nexxus 360 is also their first ever rechargeable tuner, making concerns about keeping batteries handy obsolete.
The Nexxus 360 also offers a lighted full color display on a circular head that can rotate 360° so that it can be clipped wherever it suits you best. The rechargeable lithium battery is good for 24 hours of use on a single charge, and can be recharged quickly using any USB device with an included cable. Like most such devices these days, it is a chromatic tuner that automatically determines the pitch with its onboard sensor.
It is made from high impact plastic and is small enough to fit in a case pocket, or a shirt pocket for that matter. D’Addario says it is effective on any stringed instrument that can accept a clip on tuner, including bass.
The display can be folded down when not in use, also saving on battery drain. An icon in the display always lets you know how much life is left on a charge.
You can see it in operation in this brief video.
This is likely to be a popular item on Christmas lists, selling for $29.95 at D’Addario dealers worldwide, or directly from their web store online.
