Tascam's TG-7 and TC-8 tuners combine fast pitch detection and a 5-inch-wide backlit LCD to help musicians dial into perfect pitch. The TG-7, designed for guitar and bass players, has a 1/4-inch in and thru, and fits perfectly on pedalboards and amplifiers. The TC-8 is tailored for band and orchestra players with alternate tuning scales for period instruments. Both tuners have a built-in microphone and metronome with internal speaker.
The tuner in the TG-7 and TC-8 uses high-speed processing to calculate the pitch. Four tuner modes allow up to 1.25-cent steps on the display for maximum accuracy, and the tuner can be calibrated to an installed piano. They have desktop feet with a clip to attach to a music stand, and a tripod mount is also built-in. The metronome on the TG-7 and TC-8 can be set to various beat accents, and tap tempo allows the musician to find the tempo marking for any song.
The TG-7 and TC-8 will be available in December 2010.
