Rack Tuner for a 5 String

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by aaronhutson, Apr 15, 2011.


  1. So im looking for a good rack tuner. I play alot in Drp Bflat so I need one to handle the lows. My problem is that I dont have alot of cash and I also am looking to buy a Sansamp RBI. So can anyone tell me of a good rack tuner thats not too expensive. I found a behringer btr2000 i think it was, for $50 on CL. And if it works i'll do it. But I need to know if it will pick me up. Let me know what you think. And I know this isnt the classifieds but if you have one you would wanna sell you can PM me or Email. Thanks Guys!

    I have a Korg DTR-1000 that I am very happy with. Some on ebay right now under $50.

    I had a Behringer BTR2000. Not very good at picking up the low B. It will work, but tracks very, very slow and not very accurate.
    A used Korg will suit you MUCH better.

  4. Does it pick up lows? Im mostly gonna be using it for my metal rig.
     
  5. I have the Korg DTR-1000. Works great, tracks a low B just fine, maybe slightly slower picking it up compared to the other strings, but nothing to worry about. Its a real shame Korg discontinued these tuners, they are really great.

    Theres also the DTR-2000, which is the next model up, it has more features, lights, etc, but if you dont need to extra features of the 2000 the 1000 will do you just fine.
