Subject: RE: Tech: inexpensive tuner
G'day Novice,

I use a little electronic Korg Chromatic Tuner CA-20. I just switch it on - hit it with a note - and it tells me which note I am nearest to ... and an LCD version of a needle dial shows how far out, and in which direction.

I cost me just under Aust$50 ... about US$28 (?) and is small enough for a shirt pocket. Its greatest fault is that, as well as being small, it is black plastic on top and dark grey below ... and it's very easy to lose ... Find something like this - in flourescent red or orange - and you'll never lose it!
