What are hertz used for on a tuner?

All notes produce a frequency that can be measured in a number of hertz (vibrations per second). Most tuners are set to the ISO standard, which is an A at 440 hertz. Some tuners, however, allow you to recalibrate to something other than the standard. For example, you might be able to tell a configurable tuner that A = 429 hertz instead.


What hz should a chromatic tuner be set to?

440 Hz for musical instruments.


Can you get my guitar tuned?

If your guitar is a standard guitar then yes buy a set of pitch pipes or an electronic tuner (this is the easiest). Tuning a guitar is something you do yourself its not like a piano that needs a specialist. If you took your guitar to a shop and had it tuned by the time you got it home chances are it would be out of tune again due to the change in temperature etc.

When you buy an electric guitar does everything come?

When you buy a top brand guitar, generally you will get a set of strings and probably a soft case. If you ask nicely, you can even get a pick or two free. Sometimes when you buy cheap guitars, they might throw in a stand, a small amplifier and a tuner, depends on the generosity of the merchant. What you need to have everything enough to play is the amplifier, a guitar lead, some plectrums (picks), a set of strings already on the guitar and something to put the guitar in after you play. Later, you can get a guitar stand, a strap for standing while you play and some effect pedals.

What does Calib stand for on your tuner?

The 'Calib' button on your chromatic tuner is used to calibrate the tuner. Standard tuning has 440 hertz frequency difference between half-steps on the musical scale. Some tuners will allow you to re-tune this to 441 or a few hertz off. The calibrate button selects the frequency. Make sure you get it set to the right frequency (stick with 440 hertz), or you'll create audible harmonic interference when playing with others.

How do you tune an electric guitar WITH electronic tuner?

Plug one end of a patch cable into your guitar and the other into the tuner. Start with the open E string, repeating the note every few seconds to keep it ringing. Then if the tuner says it is flat (too low) turn the key clockwise until you meet the pitch. If the string is sharp (too high) then then the key counter clockwise until it is flat, then go back up to the correct pitch. You always want to go from flat to in-tune. Then you can continue with the other five strings in the same manner. Troubleshooting: Make sure the volume knob on your guitar is turned up, but not too high. Also make sure that your tuner is set on guitar and not bass. Hope I helped!

Are guitar and bass amps the same?

No. Guitar amps and bass amps are set up very differently. You should never play a bass guitar through a guitar amp, as you will blow out the speakers of the guitar amp. Guitar amps are not meant to project the low frequencies of a bass guitar.
