The seven LEDs on the front of the pedal represent seven different calibrations. Pressing the Calib button, allows scrolling through these settings. The calibration settings of the tuner are from 437Hz to 443Hz with the default value at 440Hz. Disconnecting the power source and then reconnecting will reset the calibration to 440 Hz.
Press the Note button to cycle the display through 0,A,A#,B,C#,C,,D,D#,E,F,F#,G,G#, for individual or fixed note tuning. The chosen note will blink three times indicating the tuner has entered the fixed note tuning mode. In this mode, the far left LED indicates flat tuning, and the far right LED indicates sharp tuning. The LEDs blink faster to indicate distance from the note, and blink slower as the tuning gets closer. When neither LED is lit, accurate tuning has been achieved. Holding the Note button for 2 seconds and then releasing, will return the display to 0, and will exit the fixed note mode immediately.
The Strobe button selects between Sweep and Strobe mode. The Tuner will remain in the Mode chosen until the alternate has been selected.
This switch determines whether the pedal is active or bypassed (on/off). This is a True Bypass switch.
This switch will mute the signal when engaged (on), for silent tuning.
Using a standard line cable with a 1/4 inch jack, you can connect your instrument to this jack.
To use external power (not provided) use only a 9-Volt DC adapter. For details please refer to the section POWER REQUIREMENTS.
Using a standard line cable with a 1/4 inch jack, connect this output to the input of your amplifier or next accessory in the signal chain. This is a True Bypass output. When the tuner is disengaged (off), your signal will travel directly to your amp or effects chain without tonal sacrifice.
The Battery is located inside the pedal. To install or replace the 9V battery, loosen the screws on the bottom and remove the bottom plate. Be careful not to scratch the unit.
Always remember to unplug your cables from the pedal to conserve battery life. Some battery drain will take place when the line cables are connected to the tuner, regardless if the tuner is engaged or not.
