I'm a bit frustrated right now. I have purchased a couple models of contact tuner (Tune Tech 500 & 1000) and I'm disappointed. Here is why:
- They are slow to respond to a pluck. Higher frequencies receive a faster response than lower frequencies, but I need to wait several seconds for the A or low E string to get a response.
- Sometimes there is no response to the low E string.
- Sometimes a low E pluck shows as a B on the tuner.
Both of these tuners are inexpensive, so I guess that I'm getting what I deserve, and maybe that is just the nature of the beast. But I doubt it.
So, what are you using that doesn't suffer from these maladies?
