The bulk of the musical talk
Moderator: Uber Moderators
- $100 or less
- small / battery operation
- very fast response
- hears well down to the bottom of the piano keyboard range
- does not get "confused"
- (optional) external microphone input
- some extra features (??) considered a plus
I mean, "Which one (make/model) should I get?"
Yes. (No, please.)
I'm seeking, "extraordinary" as contrasted with "good"...
...and (if it must be) perhaps more than $100...??
' presumptuous, eh?
Has memory for 20 minutes of recording and allows you to play back at 50%-160% of original tempo.
Metronome goes up to 300bpm
Allows external mic.
Cost me about $70.
I gave up on trying to find something like this (though I would certainly be interested in trying the Tascam or anything else that someone recommends). I just couldn't find anything "economical" (i.e., ~ $100 or less) that could adequately handle the low range, and so for my own purposes at that point resorted to Klaus's drone tones.
The other requirement I'd add is "easily readable". I have an ancient Korg DT-1 that is easy to read because it actually uses LIGHTS to indicate the tuning. The LCD ones are virtually impossible for anyone to see in anything except the most optimal light conditions. But the DT-1 does not seem to be reliable in the contra bass range.
Wessex EEb "Symphonic" bass tuba (TU-17)
Amati oval euph (Doug Elliott J6Es shank on ...)
Mack Brass compensating euph (Doug Elliott EUPH LN104J9)
Buescher 1924 3-valve Eb, Denis Wick 5
The spec's state that it's fast, but (in your experience) low can it hear...and (ref. above) is it not-easily-confused ?
bloke "cool...My jobber carries those."
