Tascam's TG-7 and TC-8 tuners are said to combine fast pitch detection and a 5" wide backlit LCD display to help musicians dial into perfect pitch.

 

The TG-7, designed for guitar and bass players, has a 1/4" in and thru and fits 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 metronome with internal speaker.

 

Four tuner modes allow up to 1.25-cent steps on the display for 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:

  • Chromatic tuner
  • Metronome with 30–300 BPM range and seven accent values
  • 5" Wide backlit LCD display with note value and bargraph displaying pitch deviation
  • Four display modes: Bargraph, Fine, Strobe Animation and Needle
  • Oscillator for playing pitch
  • Built-in speaker for pitch and metronome
  • Built-in microphone for acoustic instruments
