    Question Best clip on tuner for Wolfgang headstock?

    I picked up a D'addario micro clip on tuner and while the features were great and the screen was incredible, the thing would just hang there and not really detect string pitch--especially on the dropped D/C#, then sometimes just go away, I re-pluck, etc. It seemed like witchcraft at times. I changed the battery and no joy so I returned it.

    Wondering which clip on tuners you guys use on that Wolf headstock? The placement of the tuners and lack of wood on the headstock make it a bit of a challenge so I'm interested in what you're using. Bonus points if it can be used for intonation on the Floyd as well -- otherwise I'l just use my corded tuner (korg pandora) for bench work.

    If you see my sticky thread on Van Halen tunings you wonít be surprised that I will wholeheartedly recommend the Peterson StroboClip HD!

    @Peterson StroboClip HD;

    I've seen those tuning posts. Very deep dive, my man! I'm not sure I want to go that pricey at this juncture -- just something that can pick up the vibrations fast and is relatively accurate. I have a heavy hand so I usually like to check often.

    I think if I'm going to get a strobe I would get a shelf unit peterson. The gold standard.

    I was going to get one of those but they seem to have about 20 different versions these days. Did they change the firmware or is one more accurate than another?
