Thread Name: Pitch pipe vs electronic tuner
Subject: RE: Pitch pipe vs electronic tuner
I am a guitarist of 37 years, and I always wanted a solid, accurate pitch anywhere, anytime. I don't always want to pull out an actual tuner, I merely want a starting note.
As I was teaching a guitar class one day, I suggested that if only my key fob could emit tones, I would be a happy man.
One of the students approached me after the class and said he was an electronic engineer - "I'll have a prototype next week."
He did and Pocket Tones were born.
If you want to train your ear, and have tones at all times, try Pocket Tones, they cost around $10.00 and are always accurate, never go out of pitch, and you never have to blow on it.

Pocket Tones now sell in 15 countries, and they are produced for many instruments, including a chromatic version. Music stores nation wide carry PTs, and if you have questions, contact me:
