These images demonstrates the use of the tuner in Chromatic mode (C ). This mode will automatically “sense” from the vibration of the string the frequency of the string being plucked or sounded.
In this example the lower E string (6th string) is being plucked. Note the number of the string is not displayed in this mode allowing you to pluck any string and tune is to any desired note or frequency.
Here you can see the string is FLAT as indicated by the needle being RED and pointing to left of centre.
Here, still in chromatic mode the string is SHARP as indicated by the needle being YELLOW and pointing to right of centre.
Finally in chromatic mode, the string is TUNED as indicated by the needle being BLUE and pointing to the top centre “V”.
You can of course use chromatic mode to tune all 6 strings of the guitar in this way, or your Bass, Violin or Ukulele in a similar manner.
These images demonstrates the use of the tuner in Guitar mode (G). This mode will also “sense” from the vibration of the string the frequency of the string being plucked or sounded, but allows you to tune each string of a 6 stringed guitar in order from 1 to 6.
This image demonstrates the notes on the stave and the corresponding strings.
You may choose to start tuning from string 6 in a “top down” method, or from string 1 in a “bottom up” method. It is a good idea to re-check each string least once, as changing string tensions whilst tuning will cause slight detuning of previously tuned strings.
For simplicity this also shows the layout and numbering of the strings, string number 6 being the “bottom” or thickest string, and string number 1 being the top or thinnest string.
When the tuner is powered off by pressing the power button, it will remember the last mode it was in; if the mode is not the desired one, press the power button again until the mode you want is displayed; you can cycle through all the modes by pressing the power button briefly until the display shows the mode you want. The unit will cycle in the following order:
Chromatic (C), Guitar (G), Bass (B), Violin (V), Ukulele (U).
Here is the 6th string shown in tune, you can clearly see that the string is bottom E and that the string is numbered 6, and that the mode is G for guitar.
Finally, Here is the 5th string shown in tune, the string is A and the string is numbered 5, and that once again the mode is G for guitar.
