TASCAM tell us that their new TG-7 and tuners combine fast pitch detection and a 5" wide backlit LCD display to help musicians dial into perfect pitch. Here's their description of the pair...
The TG-7, designed for guitar and bass players, has a 1/4" in and thru and fits perfectly on pedalboards and amplifiers. The TC-8 is tailored for band and orchestra players with alternate tuning scales for period instruments. Both tuners have a built-in microphone and powerful metronome with internal speaker.
The tuner in the TG-7 and TC-8 uses high speed processing to calculate the pitch. Four tuner modes allow up to 1.25-cent steps on the display for maximum accuracy, and the tuner can be calibrated to an installed piano. They have desktop feet with a clip to attach to a music stand, and a tripod mount is also built-in. The metronome on the TG-7 and TC-8 can be set to various beat accents, and tap tempo allows the musician to find the tempo marking for any song. Features:
Metronome with 30-300 BPM range and seven accent values
5" Wide backlit LCD display with note value and bargraph displaying pitch deviation
