Adjustable calibration range (410-480Hz). Tunes 6- and 7-string guitars
and 4-, 5-, and 6-string basses. Pure major/minor 3rd pitch indication
marks. "Quinta" flat tuning lets you tune down as much as 5 semitones.
Features reference tone, mic, speaker, and folding stand. Auto power
off and memory backup.
Range of Pitch Detection This compact chromatic tuner supports a broad
range of C1 (32.70 Hz)-C8 (4186.01 Hz), allowing speedy and
high-precision tuning of wind, string, keyboard, and other instruments.
This tuner is ideal for tuning even low-register notes containing
numerous overtones that are often difficult to tune. A high-sensitivity
mic is built-in, allowing easy and accurate tuning of acoustic
instruments such as ukuleles.
A separately sold CM-100
contact mic can also be used to send the vibrations directly to the
tuner for even more accurate tuning.Ultra-compact body with a "Tilt
Slit" Although the CA-30 is small, thin, and light, don't let its
pocket-sized body fool you. The CA-30 packs the functionality needed
for tuning a wide range of instruments. From studio to stage, tuning is
easy and convenient. The back of the unit includes a unique arc-shaped
"tilt slit" that lets you insert a plastic card for use as a handy
stand.High-precision LCD Meter The meter section uses a LCD needle,
combining the accuracy of an LCD with the easy visibility of a needle,
and providing a stable display.
Additional visual feedback
is provided by LEDs that indicate pitch deviation.Sound Out - Internal
Speaker Provides a Reference Pitch In addition to visual tuning via
meter, the CA-30 can play reference pitches from its internal speaker
(Sound Out) for tuning by ear. Each press of the Sound switch will
cycle through the A4-Bb4 notes commonly used for tuning wind
instruments. Or you can hold down the Sound switch to change the cycle
to the semitone intervals from C4 through C5 (one octave), allowing
reference pitches for any instrument to be sounded
Function The Calibration
function (410-480 Hz) supports a wide range of standard pitches, and
can be adjusted in 1 Hz steps for accurate and flexible tuning to any
song or key. Thanks to the Memory Backup function, the Calibration and
reference pitch are remembered even when the power is turned off.
(However, these settings will be initialized when the batteries are
Auto Power Off Function If
you leave the unit powered-on for 20 minutes without performing any
operation, the Auto Power Off function will turn the power off
automatically, avoiding unnecessary battery consumption.Approximately
100 hours of Continuous Use Low-power consumption design allows an
amazing 100 hours (approximate) of continuous battery life (A4
continuous input, Meter mode, zinc-carbon batteries.
This electronic tuner is one of my personal favorites.
I would suggest the
mic to get even more accurate results. Other features I like are the
wide ranges of pitch that this unit supports. You don't have to stick
strictly to EADGBE. This also allows more versility to tune different
