I was wondering if it is normal that my piano down-tunes while I am playing.


No, it's not normal.To determine if it's a setting glitch or a hardware problem, perform a factory reset and see if the problem continues. If it does, it's a hardware problem and needs to go to the shop. Here's the reset instructions-

Guitar pickup at bridge (EMG 81) is not working


several things....First I would check your battery. second, check wiring to your switch to make sure the wiring hasnt come apart from the solder joints. From there I would test your switch itself to make sure it is still good.I have had switches go bad and only have one pickup work before.

Tuner Won't Acknowledge Sound


Before turning the unit on, press the calib/batt button to check the battery condition.
The Fender AG6 only responds when the strings pitch is within a certain frequency range. If the guitars tuning is not within that range or if your installing new strings, first connect the guitar to the AG6 with a cord that you know to be in good working condition and turn the AG6 on. Then starting with the low E string (the thickest one), loosen the tuning peg to a point well below the standard tuning for that string. Then slowly tighten the peg as you strike the string repeatedly. When the strings frequency, comes within range you will see the 6E light glow and the needle will begin to deflect. When the needle reaches zero it is in tune. Do the remainder of the strings the same way then go back and recheck each a second time. If you have a tuning fork, you can use it to tune by ear then re-tune and maintain it with the AG6
Remember to always stretch then re-tune new strings several times.
If the AG6 does not respond even after checking the condition of the battery and the cord that connects the guitar to the tuner, the problem could be inside the AG6 with a bad connection on the board. Try moving the cord as you strike a string that you know is close to being in tune. Again a tuning fork would be helpful.

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.

I am trying to replace several of my Suzuki hand chimes that are so out of tune I can't really use them anymore and can't find a supplier who will sell them individually. Can you help? I need 1 G-4, 2...


Suzuki does sell individual replacements, I bought a few last year. If there are a few unusable chimes now, you can try to tune them, nothing to lose, I was able to tune 8 of ours and 2 others were too far gone and had to be replaced. They tune like a tuning fork, which is what they are. If the chime is flat, you either file the tips, in effect making the legs shorter, this must be done evenly or sustain will be affected, or, the inside of the legs near the tips can be filed, again evenly, to reduce mass. If the chime is sharp, filing is done down in the "******" area.

Got a Roland GW-8. I've had it for almost a year and a half. The problems consists on the fact that the keyboard gets out of tune while playing. Its not even a full note. After that I have to shut it...


OK... It is literally impossible for the unit to "go out of tune" as it is crytal controlled... HOWEVER what is probablly happening is the PITCH BENDER is getting into the mix somehow.
If the centering on the pitch bend control is sticking or is loose, this would likely be the problem.
Do some tests with the pitch bender to see if you can detect either a mechanical or offset condition of the control.

Is he tuner supposed to light up green when the string is correctly tuned?


Before turning the unit on, press and hold down the calib/batt switch to check the condition of the battery on the battery meter.

Then either plug in your electric guitar to the input side of the AG-6 or if tuning an acoustic guitar without electronics placing the AG-6 near the front of the guitar should work. You will not need to press a button to select which string you are about to tune. The AG-6 will detect it and the corresponding light will turn on when it is tuned within range.

Turn on the AG-6 and start by striking the low E (thickest) string while open. This is the number 6 string or 6E. Slowly turn the guitars low E tuning key untill the red LED below the 6E marking on the AG-6 lights up. Continue stricking the open string and turning the key untill the needle centers on zero and the 6E light remains on.

Repeat this for the open A string untill the 5A light turns on and the needle centers on zero.

Repeat for the remaining four strings, 4D 3G 2B and 1E, being careful not to over tighten and break them.

Tip: It may be a good idea once the low E string is tuned, to tune the rest manually, especially new strings or strings way out of tune. Then tune again using the AG-6 tuner.
.
If installing fresh strings you will probably need to stretch each string and re-tune, possibly several times, before they hold their tuning.

I have several Kratt F to F pitch pipes that are out of tune in one or more notes. Can they be fixed. or can the tuning plate inside be replaced.


First try cleaning them. If there is contamination on the reeds it will lower the pitch. Clean the plate with 99% isoprophyl alcholol. Do not use chemicals such as brasso as they will etch the plate and change the pitch.

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.
