DeltaLab Announces the NT-100 Ninja Tuner

The Ninja can be calibrated between 430 and 450 Hz and can detect frequencies from A0 (27.5 Hz) to C8 (4,186 Hz).

Thousand Oaks, CA (November 9, 2015) -- Tuning your guitars and other instruments just got a lot more convenient-and stealthier-with the release of DeltaLab's new NT-100 Ninja tuner. This extremely accurate, innovative tuner attaches to the back of your guitar's headstock using DeltaLab's versa-mount base. The base provides semi-permanent mounting via a high-stick silicone backing that is safe for most poly and nitro finishes.

When not in use, the tuner folds flat so that it's hidden behind the headstock and invisible to the audience. When you flip it open, its auto-on/off feature engages, illuminating an extremely bright fisheye LED readout. A detachable 360° swivel cup ensures you can view the display from any angle.

To use the Ninja with other instruments, simply pop it out of its versa-mount base and into the included clip-on base. (Note that the versa-mount is not recommended for vintage or "checked" instrument finishes.)

The Ninja can be calibrated between 430 and 450 Hz and can detect frequencies from A0 (27.5 Hz) to C8 (4,186 Hz). In addition to the main display, a nine-LED meter provides a visual tuning reference. Red LEDs light when the pitch is sharp or flat, guiding you toward perfect tuning, and when the pitch is in tune, the center LED glows yellow, while the main display illuminates bright green. You'll never strain your eyes checking this tuner!

DeltaLab is known for quality metronomes, as well as tuners, so the Ninja includes a built-in visual metronome that shows at a glance when you're in time. A low-battery indicator ensures you'll know when it's time to replace the Ninja's 3V lithium battery.

"We're extremely excited to introduce the Ninja tuner to guitarists everywhere," said Rick Gagliano, Deltalab Product Manager. "Our research indicates that guitarists who love their instruments, want to proudly display the brand of their guitar to the world. The versa-mount base never hides your guitar's logo, because it mounts on the rear of most headstocks. Convenient and cool!"

The DeltaLab Ninja is available immediately with a street price of $29.99. With a price this low and tuner this stealthy, you could put one on each of your guitars, so you're always ready to go.

This rare English Tonemaster was made circa 1957.

The Valco-produced English Tonemaster is a rare, lap-steel-inspired gem from the 1950s—when genres and guitar design were fluid.

The 1950s were a peculiar time for the electric guitar. Innovators, designers, and tinkerers were pushing the boundaries of the instrument, while musicians were experimenting with various playing techniques and sounds. There was an evolution of sorts (or de-evolution, depending on your slant) from solidbody “sit-down” guitars, like pedal and lap steels, to “stand-up” or “upright” solidbody electrics. If you look at an early Fender catalog—let’s say from 1953—you’ll see the Telecaster (and Esquire), the Precision Bass, and then a whole bunch of steel guitars. There was a shift underway, and many manufacturers began to blur the lines of what a guitar should look, sound, and play like.
