Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!
As my guitar collection grows I'm interested in doing basic setups on my own vs bringing guitars in to a tech. What's a good tuner for testing intonation? This would be for setting up electric guitars.
For testing intonation I use my Sonic Research Turbo Tuner ST-300. It's a lightning fast tuner too. Best I've ever used for 'pro' use. FWIW for more casual use I prefer the interface of a TC PolyTune pedal.
Your guitar tuner should be set to 440Hz. On the KorgCA-30 shown in the picture this is indicated at the top left of its display. 440Hz is known as “Concert pitch” which means what sound frequency is defined as being the note of “A”, and that's 440Hertz for 440 sound waves per second.
