How To Use A Micronta 63-670A Electronic Guitar Tuner
Wondering how to us a Micronta 633-670A? If you are new to guitar, then one of the key things you will need is a guitar tuner, a great one being a Micronta tuner. Learning how to use one is a very simple process that you will grow accustomed to and be able to do efficiently after a few play around with the machine.
What You'll Need:
- The tuner
- A guitar that needs tuning (either electronic or acoustic)
- A guitar pick
- The first step to using your Micronta tuner is to set it to tune on the selector switch. When you do this a red LED will come on informing you that it is on and ready to work.
- Now you will want to select the first string you want to tune on your guitar. A good habit to develop is starting with the low E string then going to the A, then D and so on. This is essential because when your ear is trained you will be using the Low E to tune the rest of the guitar!
- Next, if you are using an electric guitar then you need to plug it into the jack on the tuner. It uses a standard amp cable to connect the guitar to the Micronta tuner and you will want to make sure your volume is turned all the way up so it can get a signal from the pickups. Tip: if you have an acoustic guitar, then you can just skip this step because the Micronta tuner works using a microphone that pickups up the sound.
- Now hit the string that you selected earlier using a pick. The arrow at the top of will move telling you whether it is too high pitched (right) or to low pitched (left).
- Now turn the tuners until the arrow goes towards the middle. Since some guitars made are strung differently there is no definite way to turn it. Just hit the string and slightly turn it until you can hear which way tighten (higher) or loosens (lowers) the pitch.
- Repeat step 4 and 5 for each string making sure to select a new string each time. After your guitar is in tune strum it a little bit and if it is an old, or even new, guitar you made need to tune it a few times to get the strings stretched out .
