Hipshot D-tuner

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by katri, Oct 4, 2005.

  1. would using a hipshot D-tuner affect your intonation because when i recorded recently i was told i needed to intonate to play in drop D but if i had a D-tuner would i intonate for D or E
  2. If the detuner is setup correctly AND the string itself has been intonated at the bridge, both notes should be intoned. Intonation is matching the length of the string to the length of the neck under playing conditions.
  3. ok that makes scense now
