What I use with my students is a Sabine STX1100 tuner (at musiciansfriend.com). I first used this tuner with a deaf girl in high school whose parents asked me to help her sing on pitch. I worked with her using the Sabine, among other tools, and she now sings beautifully. The instrument can hear seven octaves and matches your intonation to a pitch played on a piano/keyboard or another musical instrument. It will tell you if your intonation is exactly the same as the pitch played and it tells the singer if (s)he is sharp or flat on the pitch. To use it you play a note on a piano and watch the light on the panel. Then after the pitch fades away you sing the note that matches the pitch you heard and watch the lights. If the same light lights, and the +/- lights on each side of the panel don't light, you matched the pitch. If a different light lights then you slowly slide up or down to the correct light. The objective is to be able to match the pitch exactly every time a different pitch lights.The Sabine STX1100 is is the only tuner (there are many others), we use to teach our New England Talent young students to match pitch. Children like to watch the indicator lights telling them when they correctly match pitch and work to match pitch when they are off.If you are an aspiring singer and want a fun way to train yourself to sing on perfect pitch, this is the product you need.

This is a good tuner and I have always preferred it to the Boss or Korg models in this price range. However, The battery compartment is too tight as to prevent the sliding door from properly closing at both ends. This makes me want to throw it in the garbage. Also, there needs to be a backlit screen as you can not read the note names without a flashlight or a well lit room. All you can see are meaningless Leds flashing as the note names are simply printed on the plastic under the lens cover and not illuminated. To be fair the tuner function works great though despite these significant shortcomings in the case design.

The King of tuners

By Tallman

from Tennessee

Folks, I have used my Sabine ST-1000 (pretty much the same as the STX1100) for, get this, 20 years! It has been in my gig back, on top of beer-drenched amps, dropped off of couch arms, stepped on, and generally abused for many thousands of gigs. I dare say any piece of electronic equipment could last this long, and mine has finally given up the ghost. I'll be getting another. It's the best!

Great Small Tuner

By LarryS-Lk9D1

from Indiana

I owned the grandfather to this unit many years ago and never had any issues. During a lapse in my playing years I gave the old unit away. Recently, I decided to get back into playing as a hobby and started replacing old gear. I read several reviews about this tuner and had concerns. After receiving it, I was pleased to find little or no issues for my use. The battery fits tight into the case, but if care is taken to lace the wiring, it works fine. Like a lot of units, sensitivity of signal amplitude is key. For the money, you can't beat the value of this tuner.

Tuner

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Mine is 8 years old and still going strong after a few hundred shows and endless time in a (very) smokey practice area that does kill gear. This tuner and the Ibanez TS-9 are the only things I own duplicates of, so that should say it all. Only problem is it's hard to read the display on stage so if your way out of tune it's easy to tune to the wrong note, but if you any sort of ear that's not much of a problem. Just a note for new musicians and people who get very nervous on stage (did in once one of the first times I played out when I trusted my gear more than my ear, never again). Haven't had a problem with the battery case metioned so many times elsewhere, must just be lucky because it is certainly not from handling it nicely.

Sabine STX-110 for Vocal training

By Dean FH Macy

from Undisclosed

See all my reviews

I have used the Sabine STX-1100 for helping vocal students to learn to match pitch. As the teacher you play a note on the piano or any instrument with the Sabine turned on, have the student hold it to see what light on the panel lights up and ask him/her to sing the note that activates the same light (a mic is built into the Sabian). For now don't be concerned that the student is singing sharp or flat. Just to light the same note you played is reward enough. Later you can fine tune their voice. Do this in each lesson until the student can match all pitches. I've been teaching kids for decades, and this little piece of equipment is worth its weight in gold. I highly recommend it for ear training besides tuning instruments.

Best you can get other than studio strobe tuners.

"I have an ST-1100, pretty much the same thing except the input and output jacks are reversed and the display is white not black. Mines going on 16 years old here soon, these things are built like a tank. Simply one of the greatest tuners ever created."Same here! Mine is well over 10 yrs old. Couldn't dream of a better tuner. The battery lasts AGES, the body will take just about anything and it's small and easy to use! Top notch. buy one!Build quality - the only downside to this product is that the battery compartment could be re-designed to close better. Mine doesn't really close (never did) so use a half strip of duct tape to make sure it stays shut.

Best tuner for your money!

By Live Bait !

from Lacombe, LA.

I have had my Sabine ST 1100 for 10 years, and have been extremely pleased. I did not want to pay the money for it, but split for it anyway and never thought about it twice until the hearty, trusty, true workhorse started wheezing and coughing (actually it had some sort of short inside). Probably from being dropped, kicked and beer spilt all over it for 10 years. No need to baby this brick of a tuner. Since its slow agonizing death, I have used several others, thinking I would save some $$. What a mistake, I'm getting another Sabine tomorrow!!

Still Pickin'

By Cowboy-eXkpm

from Parker, AZ.

See all my reviews

I was looking for a new tuner... My little battery compartment finally fell off and disappeared. I saw this and wow... the same one I have.... Can't believe it! Only... I got mine in 1968. Will be 40 years ago this april 1st. (That is scary). Well aside from the batter commpartment disappearing (Probably my fault) this thing is still going strong. Have been an active musician most of my life and used it when I was teaching school also. Batteries last about two to three years I would guess, maybe more. It is no wonder they are still around. Something good that has not disappeared. Rugged, strong, durable.. have dropped it a million times it seems like. Tuned great and right on every time. I would not spend money to get something cheaper if I did not have the money for this. You'll probably be getting another soon. I would wait and get this one.

Sabine Chromatic Tuner

By Rick Milton

from Cleveland, Ohio

See all my reviews

I have owned a Sabine for 20 yrs, and it has performed without fail. It is the most accurate tuner for bass that I have tried (and I've tried plenty). It is one of the first to work with the low "B" on a 5 string. The LED's blink from fast to slow as you get the right note, and it is very fast and smooth, and easy to use on a dark stage.Only issue is the battery cover!

Junk

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Nice to calibrate with... that's while it works. I have owned two of these because we needed the calibration feature in my band. Both quit working for no reason after about 1 year of use. They weren't abused or mistreated in any way. Spend a little extra and get a decent tuner.

Mines going on 16 years old here soon, these things are built like a tank. Simply one of the greatest tuners ever created."Same thing here. I think mine is 13 years old. The battery compartment needs a redesign BADLY. I haven't lost the cover, but it needs to be taped on. Other than that it's bullet proof and dead on!

WARNING! It may grow legs!

By DADZGTR

from Morgan Hill, CA

I've had mine since the original (ST) first came out. It has been a workhorse for all this time. Battery door is stupid and usually has to be forced back in, but it's so worth it. Rock solid tuner. Easy to use. I now have to replace the old girl with the new STX model, since mine walked away during tear down of a recent gig. I guess someone needed a tuner right away. I hope she's in good hands. Replacing my Sabine is a no-brainer. I'm buying another right now. In this price range, the STX-1100 is a smart buy that you will not regret.

Fantastic tuner

By cjmck

from Boston

It does not have a typical dial-like display, but the flashing LED's are easy to use when you get used to them. Tunes anything. I use it for guitar, banjo, electric bass, cello & violins. I've been abusing mine for ~15 years without any problem. Batteries last a long time.

Easy and quick

By Chris Mann

from Phoenix

I have always found this little tuner to be fast and very easy to use, particularly onstage. Some tuners might be more accurate, I don't know. All I know is for some reason it speeds up my tuning and I sound in tune when I'm done. I'm very picky too. On stage it just finds the note right away and I'm not sure exactly what about it makes it so easy, but it seems like it smooths it out or something. It's not so jumpy as other tuners.

takes a licking but keeps on ticking

I've owned the ST 1100 for at least 10 years. I've never had it let me down. Seems to work a little better on the guitar than the bass, but it gets the job done. Best tuner I've had it works well, even when abused.

Out of the box impressions

By stratman-BZItf

from Undisclosed

First, let me say I've not used this product yet - just some comments on build quality:-The unit has a decent weight about it with the battery connected. -Despite this, the unit kind of feels flimsy. The On/Off and function switches on the back feel a little loose and I can imagine them getting hammered into the case or cockeyed (should not be a problem if this is for home use).-The unit has 4 little feet on the bottom, similar to most electronic things, but the feet are not rubberized! It slides all over my desk! I'd rather have stick-on rubber pads than raised plastic feet.- Biggest complaint: The 9V battery compartment is incredibly tight. With the battery connected and crammed in the slot, I've not yet figured out how to put the battery cover back on. The width of the battery and wires combined seems to be too much for the lid to contain.I'm excited to use this tuner as it should do everything i need (and do it well!), but I was a bit disillusioned when I got it in my hands.
