    I have the sabine AX800 tuner for my 5 string fretless bass and I must say it work ok - not great(7 out of 10). I tracks some what when I am by myself, but it is next imposible if someone is playing in the room.

    I found it works best with the tuner right on the bridge, still it has a hardtime with the B and E strings.

    is the AX2000 any better? what about the intellitouch tuner.

    In case you don't know what I am talking about, these are chordless contact tuners that you use sticking them on the surface of your intruments. Great for woodsheding in the bathroom etc. :D

  2. Hey Samie, i think that this may be better suited in the misc. section, so i'm going to redirect it that way for you. :)

    I have an Intellitouch tuner...they're very popular for use on acoustic instruments, and I use mine on my upright and it works wonderfully. However, it doesn't work so well on electric bass...just doesn't seem that enough of the vibrations transfer through the solid body to get it to register consistently.

    I had a chance to use the Intellitouch tuner on my upright at a gig recently and it does work very well, I may just pick one of those babies up.

    I have an Intellitouch, and like it very much. It works well in noisy environments, but can be a bit slow to sense the E. It's a matter of finding the sweet spot on your bass.
