Polytune Question

Post by Slowy »

I have the original version. I have never found the 'polytune function' to work in any useful way. (It will show strings out of tune even when individual mode says otherwise)

Lately it has become delinquent: Calling a B string an E, shifting to polytune mode when one string is plucked, even when all the others are muted.

Any experience or insight out there?

My Korg Pitchblack does the same. Each individual string is in tune, but strum them simultaneously and it usually says at least three strings are sharp.

I have some really nice PRS clip-on tuners coming from the US. Carbon fibre, rechargeable battery, very accurate and when you're in tune, you can have a blue PRS bird appear! Won't be too pricey either.

Nice, but I think I'll wait for the Private Stock models to come out.

Cheap at Andertons. Assuming it's not just in need of a new battery.

Conway's had a plug for Guitars Rock. I have a bunch of stupid suggestions and nobody has offered anything useful for fixing my tuner.

I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!!!!!!
