How to tune your bass.

1. First, please check the settings of TN-1B.

Tuning set: Can you see `Standard`?

[info window]

You can change standard pitch here.

You can change tuning set here.
[set tuning set]

[set tuning set]


2. Turn to Manual-Mode.
[manual mode]


3. Tap the button on the far left. Then selected E-string.
[select 4th]


4. Please pick the E-string(thickest string) of your bass.

Take care not to sound other strings.


5. Look at the meter.

[meter too low]
The sound of your bass is too low against target pitch. Wind the tuning peg up slowly that until the needle points to zero.

[meter low]
The sound of your bass is low against target pitch. Wind the tuning peg up slowly that until the needle points to zero.

[meter too high]
The sound of your bass is too high against target pitch. Loosen the tuning peg to that the needle is to come to the left of zero once back, and wind the tuning peg up slowly that until the needle points to zero.

[meter high]
The sound of your bass is high against target pitch. Loosen the tuning peg to that the needle is to come to the left of zero once back, and wind the tuning peg up slowly that until the needle points to zero.

Note.
When the sound of the bass is higher than the target pitch (or gone to the right side over zero), loosen the strings once. You make the needle that matches to zero by while winding up. By doing so, the string does not loose easily, and the pitch will stable.
[loose and wind up]



[meter in tune]
Since the needle is pointing to zero, the pitch is in tune with the target.

IMPORTANT.
Octave higher from target pitch, and in pitch of octave lower, the needle points zero. From this, TN-1B displaying `too high`, and pitch of your bass is further increased, the meter will be displayed as `too low`.
For this reason, you wind up the string, is very dangerous that break a string, even if meter displayed as `too low`. If you're a bass beginner, then it is necessary that people who can well to tuning your bass. Please use TN-1B only to fine-tune.


6. In the same way, tune to G-string from A-string.


7. After tuning up to G-string, back to the E-string, Please check up to G-string.
[check again]
In all strings, the meter needle to the point to zero, please repeat tuning. Depending on the strength of the neck of your bass, or the gauge of the string set, you may need to be repeated many times.


8. In all strings, the meter needle points to zero. Tuning is complete.

Bass is a musical instrument that will be off pitch eased. You need to tune always before you play.
