Question about Music

1 Answer

Yamaha CG162S will NOT stay in tune.I put a new set of Saverez 520R about 2 weeks ago and I canto more than 1 minute without having to stop and re-tune. Is this a problem with the nut or poorly made tuners? BTW, I live in Tennessee. However, I make it a point to keep humidity levels in my guitar room comfortable for all of my guitars due to owning several Martins and Strats. Any help would be appreciated.

You might try tightening up the phillips head screw on each head a bit (not too much). If the strings continue to fall out of tune, you may also want to be sure the pins at the bridge are well secured.

By now you may have solved this problem, but maybe this information is still helpful:

What you are essentially recreating is a tenor guitar. Many companies make tenor guitar strings. I would suggest D'Addario J66 80/20 Bronze Tenor Guitar Strings (10-32). I've done this a few times and it is quite fun and makes for an interesting travel guitar.

Have a blast!

This will help you tune your gtr. Tuners have 3 lights 2 red and 1 green. Green is in the middle of the 2 lights. You may all so have a meeter with a number calibration. Dead center of the meeter is the # 440. 440 is what is what is called standard pitch When you tune up start with the 6 string low E. the biggest string A 5th ,D 4th G 3rd B 2nd E 1ft. Looking at the red lights when the lite on the left is red you string is flat adj. by tightening . To much and the right lite glows , your sharp, back off the tention untill the green lite glows and the meeter nedal is at 440. . Thats is what you want 440 and green. Do this to the rest and you will be at standard pitch. Good luck, keep on rockin in the free world DFD please rate me TKU

SOURCE: Need Korg GT-2 chromatic tuner help

well i hope you've figured it out by now, it's a really cool looking tuner and i love it. but if you are still having problems...
the switch on the left side: OFF, ON, LMP (ON with a little light so you can see in the dark)
The number and letters you see across the top of the interface indicate which string it is tuning to. 6E is the low E string (the thickest one) and 1E is the high E string (the thin one on the bottom of the guitar), i've seen many people get confused when they've tuned those two.
You can leave the tuner in auto and it will pick up what string you are trying to tune. but if you are having problems getting the correct string or whatever the case is, you can switch to manual mode. click the only button on the tuner and the specific string will light up on the interface.
If you press and hold the button, the tuner will go into flat mode, tuning all the strings flat.
once you have the right string and you're tuning it in, you want the needle to be centered.
that's pretty much it. enjoy!

How do i fix a Yamaha P95 that sounds Es with Fs and Bb with Bs across all the octaves?


Whether it happens to all of the key?
If yes, transpose setting may have changed. Change the setting to normal (0).
If the normal transpose, but tuning is still not standardized, check Pitch Setting.
To Restore Standard Pitch setting:
Hold down the A-1, B-1, C0 and C # 0 keys simultaneously and press any key between C3 and B3.

If the above procedure is still no effect, try resetting the factory settings / Initialize overall: :
This is the steps:
Initializing the Settings
When you initialize the settings, all backup data stored to this instrument will be initialized and reset to the factory default settings.
Turn off the power to the instrument. Then, simultaneously hold down the C7 key (right-most key on the keyboard) and turn the power on again.

NOTICE
Do not turn off the power to this instrument while it is initializing the data in its internal memory (that is, while the button indicators are flashing).

Violin doesn't stay tuned


This is an intonation issue. If you can find a music store that works with violins, talk to someone there who will certainly be better informed than I am. At least they can tell you if it's worth your time to fix it, or more cost effective to replace it.

Problem is after a few minutes i lose all sond comming from my speakers


Not likely a grounding problem. Run a test: Turn on unit with NO sound into the mics and wait 5 minutes... now try the mics. If they start working for a few minutes, then the amp is being overdriven. These small systems can be overheated and a thermal protector shuts them down to protect them. A hidden problem is if the mics are in front of the speakers you MIGHT have ultrasonic (above hearing range) feedback that may be overheating the unit. Put your speakers nearer the audience and mics behind. If problem persists, exercise your warranty.

I own a Yamaha YPT-220 portable keyboard. The "c", "b" and "f" keys (all octaves) just stopped producing a sound. Anyone else have this problem?\r\n The dealer's service...


That's the thing with today's electronic and why warranty length is so important. Where did you buy your keyboard? It's strange that they won't fix it if it's still under warranty. My Casio CTK-2100 came with 1 year free service and they fix one key that stopped function in few days. I'm pretty sure Yamaha has the same warranty length. You sometimes have to be very persistent with them though...

HOW TO CALIBRATE KORG DT-10 TUNER TO 440 TUNING


From the user manual:

While the setting is shown in the display, press the CALIB key to

set the calibration.

Each time you press the key you will cycle through the following

settings.

0: 440 Hz 2: 442 Hz 4: 444 Hz 8: 438 Hz

1: 441 Hz 3: 443 Hz 5: 445 Hz 9: 439 Hz

When you have made the desired setting, wait approximately two

seconds without pressing the key.

The indication in the note display will blink three times, and the

calibration setting will be completed. You will then return to tuning
mode.

Just do it and stop on the 440 one.
