Wide Range of Pitch Detection
This compact chromatic tuner supports a broad range of C1 (32.70
Hz)--C8 (4186.01 Hz), allowing speedy and high-precision tuning
of wind, string, keyboard, and other instruments. This tuner is
ideal for tuning even low-register notes containing numerous overtones
that are often difficult to tune. A high-sensitivity mic is built-in,
allowing easy and accurate tuning of acoustic instruments such as
ukuleles. A separately sold CM-100 contact mic can also be used
to send the vibrations directly to the tuner for even more accurate
Ultra-compact body with a "Tilt
Although the CA-30 is small, thin, and light, dont let its
pocket-sized body fool you. The CA-30 packs the functionality needed
for tuning a wide range of instruments. From studio to stage, tuning
is easy and convenient. The back of the unit includes a unique arc-shaped
"tilt slit" that lets you insert a plastic card for use
as a handy stand.
High-precision LCD Meter
The meter section uses a LCD needle, combining the accuracy of an
LCD with the easy visibility of a needle, and providing a stable
display. Additional visual feedback is provided by LEDs that indicate
Sound Out -- Internal Speaker Provides
a Reference Pitch
In addition to visual tuning via meter, the CA-30 can play reference
pitches from its internal speaker (Sound Out) for tuning by ear.
Each press of the Sound switch will cycle through the A4--Bb4 notes
commonly used for tuning wind instruments. Or you can hold down
the Sound switch to change the cycle to the semitone intervals from
C4 through C5 (one octave), allowing reference pitches for any instrument
to be sounded quickly.
The Calibration function (410--480 Hz) supports a wide range of
standard pitches, and can be adjusted in 1 Hz steps for accurate
and flexible tuning to any song or key. Thanks to the Memory Backup
function, the Calibration and reference pitch are remembered even
when the power is turned off. (However, these settings will be initialized
when the batteries are replaced.)
Auto Power Off Function
If you leave the unit powered-on for 20 minutes without performing
any operation, the Auto Power Off function will turn the power off
automatically, avoiding unnecessary battery consumption.
Approximately 100 hours of Continuous
Low-power consumption design allows an amazing 100 hours (approximate)
of continuous battery life (A4 continuous input, Meter mode, zinc-carbon
* Even if the pitch is within the detection range,
detection may not be possible for instrumental sounds that contain
a large number of overtones or have a rapid decay.
