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.

The more affordable price is still out of reach for many guitarists


Charvel MJ San Dimas SD24 CM


Charvel’s first Guthrie Govan signature model was released in 2014, after an arduous two-year effort to get the design just right. Since then, the guitar—now in its second edition—has become one of Charvel’s most coveted models. Unfortunately, its $3,699 price keeps the U.S.-made axe out of reach for many.

This year, though, the company released the Made-in-Japan signature MJ San Dimas SD24 CM, which sells for a slightly more manageable $2,799. Needless to say, that’s not cheap. But depending on your priorities, it’s a fair price for a very high quality, pro-level instrument.

Take a moment and think of your favorite guitar solo. Can you hear it in your head, note-for-note perfect as if you were listening to the track itself? I’m willing to bet the answer is yes. Indelible guitar solos tend to get lodged in your brain that way. Every practicing guitarist not only strives to play these solos as well as the guitar heroes who composed them, but we all long to craft such a brilliant lead ourselves. The million-dollar question is: Where do you begin when attempting to play the next great, iconic solo? The next “Stairway to Heaven” or “Kid Charlemagne” or “Hotel California”?
