i just got my electric. i have a quick tune tuner. do i need to plug in the chord to the tuner, or can i do it with out the chord. i know with acoustic you dont do a chord, you just play it out loud. this may sound like a dumb question, but i really dont know. thanks
it makes it more accurate with the cord rather than without, especially if your in a noisy environment.
read the manual, some you need to connect a cord, some out loud while playing clean on your amp. if you have an option, always connect the cord directly, it's more accurate as mentioned above.
yeah, usually the tuner will have a built-in microphone, but if you dont plug it on, make sure your tv, radio, everything is off or the volume is on low, otherwise the noise will interfere, it's generally easier and more accurate just to plug your instrument into the tuner
