Each tuner comes with a mini magnetic base that can be attached anywhere on the instrument.

Fullerton, CA (March 22, 2017) -- Digital clip tuners have been on the market for quite a while, but not much has changed since they were invented. Coming in all sorts of shapes and sizes they have one thing in common: a bulky clip that in most cases is bigger than the tuner itself. Clipped onto the head stock, they are obtrusive, an eye sore during performances, and pain to transport because they need to be removed when placing the instrument in its gig bag or case.

The magnetic Cling On Tuner solves these problems. It makes tuning quick, easy and fun. Equipped with a very small yet super-powerful rare-earth magnet, it will cling on to any metal including tuning machines, tuning gears, metal plates, and even metal strap pins. Each tuner also comes with a mini magnetic base that can be attached anywhere on the instrument, giving you the freedom to place the tuner anywhere you want. Unlike bulkier conventional clip-on designs, this patented tuner can be placed discreetly and conveniently behind the headstock of any guitar, ukulele, mandolin, or banjo. It folds compactly when not in use and can stay on the instrument when packing it in its case or gig bag. The magnetic Cling On Tuner demonstrates the perfect balance between outstanding functionality and elegant design.

Key Advantages:

  • Compact – because there is no bulky clip, the overall size of this tuner is about half the size of a traditional clip tuner. Still, it has one of the largest and brightest 2-color LCD displays.
  • Convenient – Folds compactly when not in use so you can leave it on the instrument. It is very quick and easy to attach and detach.
  • Discreet – if placed behind the head stock of most fretted instruments, it will be completely hidden out of sight.
  • Fun to use – magnets are fun and that encourages students to use it to tune their instruments more often.
  • Versatile – The Cling On Tuner can be placed virtually anywhere on the instrument where the user may find it convenient. It is not limited just to the headstock.
  • Ultra-fast and accurate – It is +/- 1 cent accurate with under 20ms response time.

The Cling On Tuner is available in two colors – Titanium Grey and Lava Red. Listed at $34.99 they are currently on sale for $19.99.

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.
