Seiko Sat1100 Chromatic Tuner Regular
When I started measuring the cent deviations of certain musical notes, I first used the KORG OT-120 tuner. After a while I noticed, that OT-120 diplays a too large cent deviation if the pitch is not exactly at the. Fortunately I found that SEIKO model SAT1100 tuner. The Seiko has a better microphone response, furthermore it has a much a better input filtering than the KORG OT-120. Higly dynamic guitar string picking does not cause erratic needle movements and the reading is quicker to take. The SEIKO SAT1100 does only offer equal temperament tuning. Since the needle pointer is very stable, tuning off scale pitches is as easy as it can be. Other SEIKO tuners, eg. the SAT800 display the cents tuning deviation as digital needle pointer and additionally they display the value in digital numbers... watching small changes as they occur, while the LCD types jump from cent to cent but are easier to read.
