    Default What chromatic tuner for a bass?

    Hello nice people!

    My chromatic tuner doesn't suffice for my bassoon. Below F at the low lines on bass clef, it's deaf.

    Would you know a chromatic tuner that works for a bass? Whether a cello, bass clarinet, bassoon, double bass... The need should be the same.

    I don't dare a tuner for bass guitar, as I fear it recognizes only empty strings, and won't operate on the bassoon's high notes. Or?

    I checked these models up to now, for no good reason:
    A metronome function is interesting but not vital.

    And how are the clip models different? Do they use a vibration sensor instead of a microphone, hence fit a woodwind badly?

    Thank you!

    I've received my Korg TM60, use it for 3 days, and it seems excellent.

    Because a tuner is difficult to design, and some work badly, I followed the experience of other users, despite competing models cost 1/3 with identical claimed features. And this model because a metronome can serve.

    The Korg TM60 recognizes all bassoon notes reliably and swiftly. As I play alone in my room, no contact microphone is needed.

    The needle should be much thicker or replaced by a different shape, and then the three LED could disappear. The viewing angle is acceptable. No menus, just one button per function, as I like.
