well i was just going through my cupboard looking for something, and came across one of these.



An Ibanez LU20 tuner. it turns out it was my brothers who has since moved away.

it works, no box, no instructions, but sometimes its wrong... like i'll tune it to whatever note i want, play the note, and it will be completely out, i'll tune up using my old tuner (some little crappy $30 one) and its right.

So since i have no instructions, is there a way to like... set this thing up? its got a 'flat' and 'calib' button on it which i assume stands for calibrate.


any help would be dandy. FeLiX


EDIT: does where the tuner is in the pedal chain affect it? like i have it at the start of my chain before my distortion and chorus pedal.

try pushing that calib because it should change the calibration from 435-445 i guess so it might be adjusted wrong



do you mean its meant to be on 445??

I have this tuner, pretty easy to use once you understand the numbers.

For calib (examples from the manual):
436Hz = 6
437Hz = 7
440Hz = 0
445Hz = 5

Basically, keep the calib on "0", because 440Hz is 'concert A' or just the standard tuning note.

For the Flat button, no lines = no flats, 1 line = 1 semitone down, 2 lines = 2 semitones/1 tone down, 3 lines = 3 semitones down.

This is obvoiusly for drop tuning and stuff.

Also, the LU20 is True Bypass, so it shouldn't affect your tone at all.
If you're super paranoid however, you may want to get an AB/Tuner box.
