I tune my guitars at 400 using a clip on tuner,which I believe is concert pitch I've recently bought a 5 string blue grass banjo .I set tuner to c mode to tune banjo is this correct


Actually, concert pitch is A=440 rather than A=400. Normally a 5 string banjo is tuned G (octave) D G B D though many variations exist.

Just purchased a used Alvarez FF60WR. The Electrical part works, but the on board tuner does not. It lights up when you turn it on, but the pitch indicator lights do not flash, and neither do the arrows,...


my on board tuner used to do that. I just tried to tune the guitar normally and it usually worked after a couple of seconds. The tuner needs sound to work - it won't work without you playing any notes :)

My AG6 tuner its wrong at the moment of intonation. I comprobe it with a computer tunner (a program). I need to now how to tune my tuner. Thanks


Your Fender tuner is crystal controlled and if you set it for A440 Hz, it will be far more accurate than any computer program can generate. Most of these tuners have the ability to be set at different reference pitches. If your guitar intonation doesn't match at the 12th fret, then you have a guitar setup problem, not the tuner. The intonationation is set at the bridge if you have a bridge with individual adjustments.

Ive got a dean vedetta guitar with floyd rose pickup... every time i tune it, it goes off in a while... also my string levels are very high which makes it difficult to play... i dont have much knowledge...


Some tuners have a weird mode that one presses the button once and the tuner will pass the audio until it times out, then tuner and audio stop. Two presses kills audio while tuner works for a time period and then goes dead. A third press enables audio to pass for normal playing. These are confusing compared to other type built in tuners. If you have one of these read the CONFUSING instructions carefully...

E5 flat and off pitch


Inspect for damage, especially hairline cracks. Also inspect for contamination or dirt that will change the resonant frequency. AND VERIFY the tuner you are using is accurate. Do not compare to a piano which MAY be out of tune... in fact, pianos are STRETCH tuned, that is the higher notes are SHARPED and the LOW notes are FLATTED deliberately. Comparing your chimes to a piano, the E5 would appear flat. Use a good electronic tuner to verify the pitch, not a piano,

Hi, i have a acoustic guitar and i am trying to tune it but i do not know how to use the Matrix Chromatic Tuner SR-1050


Hi
Simply turn the tuner on using the power button. Play an open string note close to the tuner (no more than about 1/2 metre away) - for instance the low E on string 6.
The built in microphone will pick up the sound and, if your guitar is reasonably close to being in tune the led light labelled 'E' will illuminate on the lower scale on the tuner along with one of the three other leds to indicate whether the note is flat (b), in tune (green) or sharp (#).
Due to harmonics any or all of these three leds may flash but it is the one that is on the most that matters.
Adjust the tuning peg until the green is on constantly when you play the string.
Move on to the next string
Note - if the string is more than a semitone sharp or flat a different light may flash (e.g if the low E string is 3/4 of a tone flat the D light will come on).
If you wish to tune your guitar to another instrument that is not at perfect pitch (and perhaps cannot be easily adjusted - like a pipe organ) you can use the calibrate button to adjust the setting of the tuner. This temporary recalibration will be lost when the tuner is turned off.

How to reset the pedal 25 ME? thank you.


You can restore the settings in the ME-25 (memories, tuner

reference pitch, and knob response method) to the values set when

the unit was shipped from the factory.

Performing a factory reset causes all settings saved in memory to be

lost. If you want to keep the memory settings, use the ME-25 Librarian

(p. 11) to save them on a computer.

1.

Hold down [EXIT] and press the MEMORY DOWN

pedal at the same time.

"FA" appears in the display.

2.

Press [WRITE].

The Tuning Guide flashes.

3.

Press [WRITE] again.

The display flashes and the factory reset is executed.
Never turn off the power while factory reset is in progress.

My guitar is great I love it but the built in fishman isys tuner is not tuning my guitar properly and when it tells me my guitar is in tune it is really not at all. Is there a way to fix this ? Please...


Hey There,
If its adjustable its worth checking if the Pitch of the tuner is set right (normaly changed by a + & - button) Any normal tuner should be set to 440 which is standard Pitch.
Hope this is of any help

I have a Suzuki tone chime C6 that is flat sounding. Is there any way that this can be fixed?


First inspect for mechanical damage such as cracks or dents. Do not confuse "flat" as off pitch with "dead" sound...

Get an electronic tuner and verify pitch before going further. If there is a crack, depending on the material it might be repairable. It is UNLIKELY that the pitch would be very far off as these are mechanical type resonators due to manufacturing defect. Also look for problem with the clapper...

No instructions for a yamaha erg 121 c electric guitar


i don't really know what instructions you expected, although you should have received something for the tuner and amp. I suspect that you are new to playing the guitar, as, I don't wish to sound disrespectful, you would know what to do! So first, and again I hope not to sound like I'm treating you like a dummy, plug the guitar into the tuner input. Or if It's a piezo tuner clamp it to your headstock. Most tuners are now automatic so it should pick up on the string you are striking.Repeatedly pluck the same string til the tuner changes colour, or flashes, or some other indication to tell you the string is at pitch. Repeat the above for all 6 strings.
Then plug the cable into the amp input, switch it on, and bugger about with the controls til you get a half decent sound. ( thats what the rest of us do).Don't expext too much from this package, it is budget level, but of quite good overall quality.hope this helps
