I can't take it anymore! My high dollar MTD 535 has never been intonated to my satisfaction, and I find no straight answers or practical solutions... anywhere! I'm sure that the problem lies with me and my understanding of how to perform the intonation... but... I think I'm an intelligent person and I've followed advice from various people and... my bass is still poorly intonated above the 12th fret. I am using a Peterson Strobostomp tuner and have tried intonating and tuning the bass in several different ways that have been implied by the options and information that have been presented to me. At this point I'm tempted to: 1. Buy the Korg tuner with built in Buzz Feiten offsets and see what results I get, forgetting that the Strobostomp was presented to me as being far more accurate. and 2. Concluding that the Buzz Feiten system is a frickin' bad idea until such time as the Buzz Feiten people actually make public the intonation formula, rather than leave it to aftermarket speculation and/or advise that you take your instrument to an elite "licensed" shop to have it set up. I frickin' have an expensive bass that's never been intonated properly, and I'm unhappy at the moment. I am tuning my open strings to the EQU temperment, then programming the P-1 setting of my Strobostomp according to my understanding of the following formula: G = 1c b @ 12th fret (P-1 programmed so that G = 1c b) D = 1c b @ 12th fret (P-1 programmed so that D = 1c b) A = 1c # @ 12th fret (P-1 programmed so that A = 1c #) E = 1c # @ 7th fret (P-1 programmed so that B = 1c #) B = 1c # @ 7th fret (P-1 programmed so that F# = 1c #) Buzz Feiten temperments ignored for regular tuning or for intonating. My bass sounds like ass above the 12th fret. I've about had it with this Buzz Feiten crap. I have yet to try to see if I can intonate the bass in the standard fashion without ill effects. I'm sure that the Buzz Feiten system is good, but I am frustrated with the lack of clear information about it. I don't question whether it works, but I question whether it's a good idea to put it on instruments when reasonably intelligent people can't figure it out based on the information that is made available by Buzz Feiten, the instrument makers (MTD), and the tuner makers (Peterson).
