i know many of you love the strobostomp. just wondering from those who have/ used this one.
It sure is.
if you can't afford a strobostomp, get one anyhow. If you still won't, the DT-10 is the best tuner that is not a strobe tuner :AOK
I picked up one basically brand new about two weeks ago from someone here. I'm having a very difficult time in getting it to 'zero in' on the correct pitch. Probably less than 10% of the time can I get it so that there is no red dot showing either above or below the target, and only the green 'in-tune' light is displayed by itself. Is this normal, or should I contact Korg?
I have the Korg on my pedalboard, and have had the larger version of the Peterson tuner as well.
The Peterson tuners are incredibly accurate, and I really did notice a difference using one. The Korg is a really nice tuner, not quite in the same league as the Peterson, but certainly more than acceptable for a gig. For critical recording, I'd go with the Peterson.
It's what my strobo replaced. Great tuner for the money, but there's no going back.
Sounds like almost every tuner I've ever used.
I like mine .. gets the job done and is built very solidly.
As LSchefman says though, I probably need a strobe of some kind for recording and intonating.
not to hijack the thread, but is the DT-10 not good enough for intonating?
aside from the Peterson, any other (more affordable) tuners good for setting intonation?
only a strobe tuner is accurate enough to properly intonate
hmm ok thanks Moe!
I was also looking at the new Planet Waves strobe tuners.
...i got one to replace my boss tu2. i'm much happier with the korg.
more accuracy, less noise, and easier to read.
I believe these are "strobe" tuners only with respect to the pretty lights -- not the tuner mechanism.
I suspected as much. kind of misleading on PW's part...
I think they are accurate to within 0.4 cents, which is pretty darned good
I like mine.. but I don't like it in the signal chain.. a/b box
The Planet Waves pick tuner IS an actual strobe tuner (the leds are flashing on and off at the frequency the string should be vibrating at) where the Peterson is a "virtual" strobe tuner (it says it right on the packaging). Not to take anything away from the Peterson as its a great tuner but it is not a true strobe tuner by definition.
Be that as it may, the Peterson reads the signal in realtime and displays it, whilst LED tuners take an average of a sample of the signal and display that. And it's more accurate than the PW pick.
but let's not split hairs
Korg DT-10 is fine.
It is an accurate enough tuner for day to day usage (I see the point about tuning for recording).
It is soildly built and easy to read.
Tiny bit of tone suckage, but I don't run it in my chain any way.
I'd say get one. They are relatively inexpensive and they work nicely. Try and avoid putting it in your effects chain.
