(back) Subject: Korg CA-30 Tuner From: "Larry Chace" <RLC1@etnainstruments.com> Date: Tue, 28 Oct 2003 09:25:51 -0500   I just tried out a little Korg CA-30 tuner. It is very small (and inexpensive!) and can beep out an octave of notes as well as hear the full piano keyboard range, displaying the note letter and showing the pitch deviation via an LCD "meter" (that looks surprisingly realistic). The needle's resolution appears to be about 2 cents (2% of a semitone). (It was able to detect low DDD on my 16' Bourdon -- CCC and CCC# are being faked up right now as Resultants.)   Its base pitch level can be varied from A=3D410 to A=3D480, but it does = not have a choice of temperments other than "equal".   For setting the bearings or for checking how well you are doing tuning octaves by ear, this seems to be quite a nice little device. I did some Google searches and found it available at various places for (well) under $40.00 US.   Happy tuning!   Larry Chace

I am trying to compile a list with pictures or drawings, to be posted on my ATOS chapter knowledge base. The information may be pertaining to classical or theatre organ pipe makers since our site gives general information in many cases. -----Original Message----- From: DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org [mailto:DIYAPASON-L@pipechat.org]On = Behalf Of Dan Emery Sent: Tuesday, October 28, 2003 9:21 AM To: Residence Organ List Subject: Re: [Residence Organs] Pipe makers     I am familiar with Blair's work - top notch.

I have tried adjusting and = tweaking them in various ways, but about a dozen of them still just will = not open when the chest is under pressure. I have checked the specs for = these and made sure I am within the performance window for each size and = ohmage. Anyone got any thoughts about troubleshooting? thanks Steve Pitts Ardmore, Tennessee

Many times this is hard, as I can't hear the electronic voice when right next to the pipe. Eventually we do get the right pitch, but it takes a lot of time. Any warnings before I buy one of these?   Paul     --- Larry Chace <RLC1@etnainstruments.com> wrote: > I just tried out a little Korg CA-30 tuner.

I've tested it on several different pitches and it seems to pick them all up. You can tune the pipe dead center since it has an analog scale and three LEDs. I've been told that it may have difficultly on lower notes = such as the 16 foot stop (more vibration), but have not tried this.   You can't go wrong for the price,   John Volbeda Corona, CA       >I think this might be what I'm looking for---on our >pipe/electronic combination, I have been tuning the >pipes to the electronics.
