    My tech and sound guy are recommending I simplify. I'm definitely hearing that as 'sell off half your rig to provide half the funds to do something else, even though in truth it will only give you the great tone you already had'.

    In truth, that's why I'm looking at low dollar things like a compensated nut, because a Kemper Stage to control a Kemper rack would also cause me to need a lighter double guitar case that I would have to mod to hopefully also carry the Stage. And we only have two shows booked in December currently.

    Compensated nuts (IMO) don't fall in the needless upgrade category. They're freakin' great. I don't know if I'd care as much about it for gigging fiddles, but for recording they're almost a must-have once you get used to them.

    I definitely buy a lot of dumb guitar shit (hell, I bought a Gruv Gear Fretwrap) but deez nuts are legit.

    It makes less sense the longer you look at it. What exactly is going on here? It's a tuner that doesn't look like any modern tuner I have ever seen that comes with another free tuner?

    Does it vibrate like a tuning fork or what? What exactly is an off pedalboard tuner that vibrates with the neck? As interested as I am in the compensated locking nut, everything else about their site screams "do not give these guys $50".
    I did some digging because I too wondered what the fuck this thing is.



    I'm just glad he kept it real by leaving the headstock absolutely filthy for the video. A clean guitar in the demo video would just be un-metal.

    Am I missing something or is this pointless as fuck?

    I have never had the issue this dude was having. With a pedal tuner you wouldn’t need this. Don’t you unclamp your locking nut while tuning? What the fuck is this for??!

    They haven't responded to my emails or my FB private message, so I posted on their wall today and still nothing there either.

    I want to see the actual compensated part of the nut, and every one of their product pics I can find has locking pads on covering it up. This is not boding well.
