I bought a rt 7000 a couple years ago, Worked fine for a while. now I have problems with the power cord. it shuts off at the slightest touch. the thing is ultra sensitive too, If it isn't quiet when I tune, it picks up everyones noise, thought it might be the pickups...Nope that wasn't it. the lights are great, if you'standing next to it. otherwise you really can't see them. The thing is pretty good for the money and I have had it for awhile so i guess it was worth it. but it won't last forever.
This thing is nuts. Big easy to read display? Eh ehhh! The LED display is big, but you can't tell the difference between the notes on the led display. Tuning in a loud place is hard when you rely on the visuals offered by your tuner, but you can't tell yours A's from your B's and your B's from your D's, C's, E's, or F's! It can really be bad when you hit the first cord and all it really sounds like is as if you dropped your guitar on the ground. Not sure if the problem is LEF isolation or if they are just too bright, but you just can't read the note display! I sent it back and got a Korg, a few bucks more, but worth it!
i've been wanting to buy one of these for a long time but i got a korg dtr-1 instead, which is well worth the money. my friend got this one and i like it because of the swoop display and large note display. the bad thing is that it doesn't pick up the note very well and it's very hard to tune the input and outputs are weird and it's not easy to hook up (as a first timer). i definitely would suggest spending a little extra money and buying the korg dtr1000, it's works way better.
It works well enough -- I mean, it's a tuner and it does exactly what it's supposed to. It does allow for flat tuning, which is nice. It also has a Strobe Tuning mode which comes in handy as well. It seems to have more features for less money that other brands, which is what made me buy it. It's best feature is the A/B. You can plug 2 instruments into it and plug it into 2 amps and then select between them via footswitch or front panel. For example, I have my electric going into input A and output A going to my half stack. Then my acoustic guitar in input B and output B going straight to the P.A. Now I can effectively switch between acoustic and electric guitars by hitting a button. Everything stays hooked up and connected, but routed correctly. Very nice option for a guitar player that like to play some acoustic songs.
I, like many others, maybe even yourself, was looking for a rackmount tuner and was comparing this one to the Korg DTR-1000. The Korg brand might sound appealing compared to Sabine but that need not be your deciding factor. The bassist in my band got the DTR-1000 so I was able to compare the two side by side:-The Sabine tracks notes slightly faster than the Korg but both are excellent. -The DTR1000 only has one input. The Sabine has two inputs and two outputs and are footswitchable and are nice if you play two guitars each with their own amp. I thought it would let me switch to using a backup guitar on the same amp but it does not. Switching to another input also switches to a different output. -Both are extremely accurate-The Korg has a lot of plastic: plastic inputs, cheap button switch, extruding molded plastic that can crack easily. The Sabine is all metal with a flat plastic cover on the display and metal locking nuts on all the terminals. Others have reported problems with the Korg's pieces breaking. Both will hold up to gentle use but the Sabine is a bit more robust.-Here's the deal with the DISPLAY problem that everyone is whining about: Yes, if you're staring at the tuner from 2-3 feet away it will look very bright and will be a bit tough to distinguish the note labels. Stand 5-25 feet away on stage and its clear as day, with or without sunglasses. Easier to read in that case than the Korg. That may be the deciding factor. If you're playing on stage, get the sabine. If you're just at home...why do you even need a rack tuner?? But if you insist, get the Korg if you just need something for home. The Sabine has great features at a great price.
Had a Korg, and it served me well, but it died in my rack. Found a new Sabine 7000 for an unbelievable price (out-of-business sale). I like it as much as the Korg. All the same features, except the differnce in the strobe took a little getting used to. All in all, it's a great rack tuner, easy to see from a distance.I think I'll keep it 'till it dies. Has all the same features, flat tuning, mute, calibration, etc..only one small feature I miss, it only has output jacks on rear, vs. front and rear input/output. Also no mic input, but I think those features are available on the Sabine 7100. Large LED type light or strobe. Pretty cool though. One note, if you are using the old a Furman power supply mounted directly above it, you might have to dim the lights. No biggie, I think most people do anyway.
