TN-1G

How to tune your guitar.

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

Look at info-window in the center of the screen.
Standard Pitch: Can you see `A440`?
Tuning set: Can you see `Standard`?

[info window]

You can change the setting of the standard pitch here.

[set tuning set]


2. Turn to Manual-Mode.
[manual mode]
You can turn to Manual-Mode by tapping the button a few times.


3. Tap the button on the far left. Then selected E-string.
[select 6th]


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

Take care to not sound other strings.


5. Look at the meter.

[meter too low]
The sound of your guitar 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 guitar 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 guitar 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 up the tuning peg slowly that until the needle points to zero.

[meter high]
The sound of your guitar 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 up the tuning peg slowly that until the needle points to zero.

Note.
When the sound of the guitar 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 0. From this, TN-1G displaying `too high`, and pitch of your guitar 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 guitar beginner, then it is necessary that people who can well to tuning your guitar. Please use TN-1G only to fine-tune.


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


7. After tuning up to high-E-string, back to the E-string, Please check up to high-E-string.
[check again]
In all strings, the meter needle to the point to 0, please repeat tuning. Depending on the strength of the neck of your guitar, 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.

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