The Ernie Ball CradleTune utilizes a tuner and tripod to provide an integrated, portable solution for quick and easy setups, maintenance, or string changes. The tuner attaches to the tripod acting as the fixture which holds the guitar at the headstock. The tripod pivots for multiple angles of setup to accommodate different instrument types and sizes including electric guitars, acoustic guitars, bass guitars, ukuleles, and more. The tuner can also be quickly detached from the tripod for use as a clip-on practice tuner. The tripod folds up for a compact, durable design that easily fits into a gig bag or instrument case.
