Check for a problem with the neck or the truss rod. Look for anything loose or cracks and especially at the joint between the neck and the body.

Old or bad strings are the first thing to check of course. Use the right tension strings as they come in different weights. Use the recommended ones.

How do I set the tuner to tune at different keys?


Good question, tuners can be simple and some are complicated
a basic automatic guitar tuner you would not have to do anything to the settings, just tune normal on the E string then slowly down tune to D most tuners are a little sensitive, so go slow
and one thing I always do is go lower than the note I'm tuning to then tune up tell it's correct, strings seem to stay in tune better
Hope this helps ?
and if you have time check back on my profile
I will be doing some video tips this weekend
showing tuning, and some basic guitar repairs
thanks for your time

I have just bought a 1980 Hawk. But i am having trouble tuning it. it is also the pick-ups are really sensitive. It picks up every touch on the guitar. Putting your finger on a string sounds like a drum...


Your guitar Needs to be setup properly, tuning is tough need to wrap strings around tuner peg properly to stay in tune, and the pickups may need to be adjust farther away from the strings?
there are Tons of videos on YouTube showing basic guitar setup,
hope this helps?

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.

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...


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.

Just had hipshot tremsetter installed and guitar will not stay in tune


The tuning will be LESS stable using pitch bending hardware, however if the unit is going out by more than 10 cents, take it back to the installer for adjustment.

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...

Trombone wont stay something wont come out


Try removing your tuning slide and while pointing the bell toward a light source ,look in the tuning slide end of the bell. You might have the rubber grommet from the end of the stand stuck in there. If so carefully use something smaller than the diameter of the tubing to push it out towards the bell opening.. A piece of wooden dowel should work.

SChecter c1 plus tuning problems


If you do a lot of bends or use a whammy bar this will happen a lot. The best way to keep a guitar in tune is to buy a locking system to put on it. I use a floyd locking system for my own guitar.

Gibson Les Paul wont stay in tune


That's the problem; you're using light gauge guitar strings. Chances are that if you are not used to playing strings that light, you're fretting hand will hit the strings with more force than is neccesary to fret them, thereby forcing them out of tune. You can solve this problem by adding more winds around the string post (three or more winds should do it), or you can switch to a heavier gauge of string.

If they're true locking tuners, they should have a notch on the back of the gear housing that you turn with a nickel to engage the locking mechanism once tuning has been established.

Also; check the intonation of the guitar itself on an electronic tuner. If it tunes right but sounds out of tune when played, this is an intonation issue, and can be solved by adjusting a small set screw that moves the individual saddle back and forth in the tune-o-matic style bridge. You can check this by tuning the string to the correct note, then playing the same string at the 12th fret and checking it against your tuner. If it rings in true, you're fine, if it comes up flat or sharp, every note on the fretboard is going to be off by that much, and you'll have to adjust accordingly (turn the screw to the right to add length and lower a sharp note, turn the screw to the left to subtract length and raise a flat note, if I remember right).

Hope that helps.

Tuning


If you are marginally interested in the process of tuning the piano, and your main motivation is to save the cost of a professional tuning, bite the bullet and engage the services of a qualified tuner. Trying to do it yourself will become overwhelming very quickly. If, however, you are genuinely interested in the skill of tuning, and willing to invest the time and effort to become good at it, then get yourself a star tipped tuning hammer and some mutes (eBay will do) and start to see what you can do to make your piano sound better. Begin by getting the whine out of individual notes by tuning the strings to each other. Search out the "Every which way you can" tuning article by Kent Swafford on your favorite search engine for an introduction to aural tuning. If you're inclined to start out with an electronic tuning aid, check out Tunelab Pro - a free, fully functional demo is available for download to your laptop. Remember, however, that an electronic aid only shows you whether you've hit your target for any given string. Learning how to finess the physical motions of tuning so that the string stays on target for more than a few minutes is another process altogether. If your first couple of forays into trying to tune don't drive you around the bend, then consider finding a qualified piano technician who would be willing to provide lessons for a fee. If your interest holds up, investigate the resources for learning that are available through the Piano Technicians Guild. Their source books and monthly journals are second to none, but unless you are committed enough to the process to become an associate member, the non-member prices for materials are pretty high. "Piano Servicing" by Reblitz is another excellent source of knowledge. It might be in your local library.
