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.

Guitars are the best. We love them. It’s fun to fall in love with a guitar at a store, buy it, and proudly bring it home. But we’ve all been there … where after a month that new guitar is just not playing as good as it was before. As guitar players, we know what feels good and what feels bad when it comes to playability. Maybe you have setup preferences that you like on all your guitars, or maybe you want to experiment with changes to your setup?
