No...not on mine at least...it has sharp on one side, and flat on the other...and the little needle goes between them, and when you think you got it, it goes to some random note

Set it to 440.

It's called the calibration.

If you aren't at 440, then you aren't really in tune.

It's used for situations where you are tuning up a band that has an instrument that can't easily change its tuning, like a piano.

You change the calibration until the piano registers as being in tune, and then tune the rest of the band off of that.

Do it by ear.....Just got down half a step, tune the A string then tune it like normal then match the low E to your now Ab string.....Hope I said that right...

Can't you tune your E string to your 6th fret, A string, and then tune as normal to the E string?

I thought by changing the 440 number then tuning you may alter key i.e 420 is Eb 400 is D... Just a guess really... So this number is for what??

Get a chromatic tuner, or tune to standard, and tune down by ear. And don't screw around with the Hertz. It's supposed to be 440...
