Any one ever use one of these.
I want to get one to practice DB and make sure I am in tune.
The guitarist in our band uses one. How does it even work? Is it mic'ed? I tried using it once, got really frustrated, and went to my normal tuner. I vowed never to touch it again.
Later I went to the corner of my room and cried. That was such a long winter.
I love mine, and use it on my acoustic g**t*rs and all my basses. It's a contact-type tuner, so you need to experiment to find the best attachment point for each of your instruments. Once you find the consistently "sweet spot", it works great!
It works on vibration. I have been playing my DB with a normal LED tuner to make sure I am hitting the note but the screen is to small.
I figure clipped to the bridge it should work nice but I also never really have used one.
I have one and I love it! It works with a Piezo pickup, so if you want to tune up on the stage, all you have to do is turn your volume all the way down and tune up. Also, unlike a tuning pedal, it does not interfere with your sound, as it is out of your signal chain. I use it to tune my basses (Except the Steinberger), my guitars and my upright and it works great. I highly recommend it.
Gruff, I just got one for my DB. It works just great...I clip it to the bridge, like you mentioned. I'm playing in a bluegrass band, and every one of us owns one.
Big Wheel -
I don't know if you have an original or a Spirit, but I've found I can clip my Intellitouch to the bases of my kickstands on my Spirits. Works fine!
Thanks for the info, I get payed today so it is off to MarsMusic to get one.
Funny little tid-bit. I made a tape with a keyboard playing scales so I can get my ear and hands in shape on the DB. After tuning last night I left my tuner on by mistake. The 2 watt light blinked and I thought hmm maybe I can play with the tape and have the tuner on while watching for the green light that says good note. BLah blah blah Thanks again for the input.
