Fast response, Poor Tuning Octave-to-Octave
on April 20, 2018
Does not tune accurately from octave to octave. I play 5-string banjo. When tuning the 3rd string to G4 (by the tuner), then tuning the 5th string to G5 (one octave higher), by the tuner, the string would not match by ear nor when a 12th-fret harmonic was played on the 3rd string.
I also found the tuner to not be accurate when a 440hz "A" tuning fork was applied. It was off by 1-2 hz. This can be compensated for on the tuner by adjusting the reference frequency on the tuner, but that made no difference in the octave-to-octave accuracy.
The tuner did have good response time (which is what I was hoping for), but if it isn't accurate, what good is it? I have been using an "Intellitouch PT10" for many years, and although it is a little slow, the tuning is very accurate.
Maybe this was just a "bad one", but it performed poorly none-the-less. What a bummer...
