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 tuning.

Ultra-compact body with a "Tilt Slit"
Although the CA1 is small, thin, and light, donít let its pocket-sized body fool you. The CA1  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 pitch deviation.

Sound Out -- Internal Speaker Provides a Reference Pitch
In addition to visual tuning via meter, the CA-1 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.

Calibration Function
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 Use
Low-power consumption design allows an amazing 100 hours (approximate) of continuous battery life (A4 continuous input, Meter mode, zinc-carbon batteries)

    Metronome Help

    Not sure which model  you need? There are many models  to pick from and it depends what you are using the metronome for. If you need a metronome for music purposes, any model  will work well, but there are some with more features than others. Below are a few tips to help you choose a model. 

    The Korg Ma30 digital metronome is packed full of features. The Screen of the Korg Ma30 metronome has a pendulum that swings back and forth, volume control, and tuning features. Another great feature of the Korg Ma 30 metronome is the tap feature. 

    Franz are the only metronomes made in the USA. They carry a one year warranty and repairs are available after one year. The Franz Xb700 is a very loud metronome, with accenting and half time/double time. The Franz Xb750 metronome/ tuner is identical to the Xb700 except that it has a switch to generate pitches. 
   
    The keywound metronomes with a swinging pendulum let you see the motion of the beat. The bell models will also accent the first beat with a bell sound. The keywound models give the most natural sound of all the metronomes and are very pleasing to the ear. The Taktell Mini is a great metronome for portability, but the sound is louder on the Taktell Piccolo or Standard Models. Using the keywound models is simple and with winding the key about 8 -12 times the sound should last from 20 to 30 minutes. The plastic standard models are identical to the standard wood model... except for the case which is wood. The wood is made from a composite wood and then finished with walnut, mahogany, or black finishes. 

   Back To Metronomes  

    Quartz and keywound models  are a little easier to use than digital models, as you can dial the tempo quickly with a quartz model  - a digital model  requires pressing a button till you get to the tempo. -  Look at MatrixSeiko and the Wittner Mt70  for great quartz models at a low price.

    Digital Metronomes have many features and will increment the the tempo by one beat at a time. With a digital metronome you can obtan  the tempos 60,61,63,64... etc. Quartz and keywound models use musical tempos to determine the increments.  
  
      Need a loud metronome... the loudest are the Franz XB700 (made in USA), Matrix  Mr600,  and Seiko Sq70 are our loudest.  Need a very loud metronome -- for chorus, band, orchestra, large groups... look at the MetroAmp packages.  
  
        For exercise, physical therapy, dog training, or golf swing... our most popular model  is the Seiko DM50 Clip On.
