    Sorry: didn't really know where to post this.

    I bought a Korg Pandora last year to use as a tuner, and also to goof around with effects, record a bit, etc.

    I only recently noticed that when I tune, I can change a value from 438 to 445. What's that all about? It affects the tension, of course, and I'd always thought I had a problem with tension on my bass.

    I'm playing a Highway One Precision with D'Addario Chromes (50-105). What should I set this to, and why?

  2. You should set it to 440, unless you are playing along with a recording that you need to tune to.
    Why? Because A 440 is the standard tuning note for Modern Western Music.

    Sounds good. Will do.

    Thanks for the quick answer!
