    I see what looks to be a tuner on several fiddles in the videos.
    John, Dave, and Steve have something on the top of their fiddles  that appears to be a D’Addario NS Micro Clip-On Tuner.

    Is this correct and do you like it?

    I have one clipped on my fiddle.  It’s great.

    I generally use a Korg handheld to tune if playing inside.  However, I find the micro-clip on really handy if playing outside or where it’s drafty, in order to quickly check the tuning.  It’s also handy to check intonation issues.

    I haven’t used a clip on.  But, I do use a really good, free IPhone app that works great….Pano tuner.

    A clip-on tuner is really nice in a jam session because it works off vibrations in the wood (no microphone). You can tune even in a noisy environment.

    Kenny I love my tuner , like John says you can tune while noise is going on very handy and it’s always right there when you need it ! I never take it off except to clean and polish the fiddle , It doe’s not get in the way putting the fiddle back in the case !

    I have clip-on’s on all my wood-bodied fiddles.  They never come off.  They’re cheap too, what maybe $16?   I remember buying my first tuner in the 80’s…. over $300!
