Subject: TGI 101 tuner instructions?

I have come by a TGI 101 clip-on tuner.

Its interface is a tiny screen and one orange button.

Pushing the button has it cycle between the notes C, G, B, U and V (how did I miss out on learning about U and V?) with a needle-dial display that doesn't seem to move.

What next?

PDF anyone? (Somehow I expect that a printout of the manual will weigh several times as much as the tuner itself).

I would imagine the letters C, G, B, U and V stand for tunings for various instruments:

C - Chromatic
G - Guitar
B - Bass
U - Uke
V - Violin

When you get to the instrument you need to tune, the dial should guide you to the right tuning - needle or colours or what have you.

It came in a box of other random stuff and my first guess was that it was a pedometer.

Will Fly - you've just done me a huge favour. Having worked out the G B U V options, I assumed the C meant cello, thus concluding it was no use for my de-tuned 12 string. I acquired it via someone leaving it behind at the Unity folk club; and despite appealing month after month, no-one claimed it; presumably as puzzled as the OP!

Out of curiosity, do any here with chromatic tuners that also have settings for specific instruments such as "guitar" or "violin" use these "non chromatic" modes of operation?

The whole point of a chromatic tuner is that it will tune every note, including all sharps (which also means all flats). It usually means that it is automatic. You play any note and the tuner will tell you what the note is and if it is sharp or flat. You should be able to calibrate it so that it will adjust the pitch which is considered in tune. Maybe the C means calibrate. What happens when you try to tune a string?

If you use an instrument-specific setting it will presumably be able to limit its guesses of where you're heading to the pitches the instrument is supposed to have and thereby make the process quicker. With standard guitar tuning you don't need to be told your B flat is off.

Perhaps they make a 2gig expansion card for Martin Carthy.

One with settings for the array of tunings some guitar players use would be interesting...

I wonder if there is one on the market that has DADGAD as a setting?

Never use the instrument specific options, except by accident. Apart from the built-in one on one ukulele which is standard ukulele specific, which is silly, since there are different uke tunings people use.

One of the great things with chromatic tuners, apart from alternative tunings, is that it's good for checking strings are still in tune after sliding a capo up a few frets.
