I've been having a lot of problems lately with tuners picking up my low E string (top string). I have an electric with active pups and the battery is fresh. It has gotten worse over time. what could be causing this?
My simple set-up:
ESP - M-200-FM with emg 81-85s
Washburn - Maverick (total POS)
Saint Louis 5 string Bass

Floor POD, Du Hast and several cheap Behringer pedals.
Crate Amp

fret the Low E at the 5th fret, and tune to "A."


some tuners just cant get the low E

When I get home, I'll try the 5th fret "A" technique. My reluctance with that has always been that my action is so sensitive that holding that note at a true "A" is tricky.

For the other questions, I've used 3 tuners with the same problem and they don't use batteries. Granted the main tuner I use live is the one that has been getting worse so it is probably the tuning element going into the crapper. Thanks everyone.

Sometimes a cheap tuner cant pick up anything lower than a D note if played on the low E string. So maybe your E is way out of tune too low, and it wont pick it up. tune by ear first...

Have you tried playing a harmonic on the 12th fret, and tuning that?


Not yet but I'll give it a shot.
