OVERVIEW

A portable chromatic tuner for planet-conscious musicians.

The TC-1S chromatic tuner has a built-in microphone as well as a 1/4" input for guitar and bass tuning. Its lightning-fast pitch detection is displayed on a wide bar graph display for instant feedback. Four display modes are available, including fine pitch display for 1-cent accuracy and strobe tuning animation. The tuner can be calibrated to an external source such as a piano or other hard-to-tune instrument.

The TC-1S charges its battery via a USB input or from a built-in bank of solar cells on the front panel allowing 6 hours of continuous use or an amazing 7 years of standby charge in darkness. It's wrapped in a shock-proof silicone cover that's available in multiple colors and keeps the Solar Tuner protected.

Included with the TC-1S is a nylon strap and clip. Snap it to your guitar or bass gig bag and it will stay charged all the time.

    The Tascam TC-1S Solar Tuner is a great idea executed very well. This is hopefully the first step in musical gear that is environmentally conscious, high quality and convenient to use. You never have to change the battery in this tuner and the internal battery has a lot of reserves. What I usually do to charge mine is place it on my dashboard the night before so in the morning the sun will shine on the solar cells. By the time I'm ready to use it it is fully charged again.

    Solar power coolness aside, this tuner is very accurate and it has a few different tuning options like strobe or fine tuning that really make this a quality product. I have bought tuners in the past that are calibrated a little bit off but this one is spot on and could be used for studio recording. I bought one of these as a Stupid Deal, lost it and immediately bought another one at the regular price.

    The only drawbacks are there is no output jack so it is not able to be linked as a tuner on a pedalboard and there is no backlighting to see the display in the dark. Hopefully Tascam will develop a solar powered pedal tuner next.

    I purchased 2 of these. Saving the planet 1 battery at a time. They are large and not easy to use with my accoustic guitar or my fiddle. Seems the microphone picks up more ambient noise than instrument noise because you can't mount the tuner on the instrument. I stopped using them after 1 day.
    I would not want this on stage.

          I have no complaints about this tuner. The product description is accurate. However, I bought this item because it was on sale and was a really great deal for the money. I do know I would never buy it at the MSRP or the regular price. If they are ever on sale again, I will probably buy several more as gifts for my students.

                      very quick, so fast that it will display notes almost as fast as you can play them, want to know what that note name is ? just look at this tuner.
                      4 functions are very usefull
                      I get it close in needle function and then hone it to perfection in
                      strobe function

                        Bought this tuner to keep with a guitar I use in my Library/Study where there is lots of light. Hangs from my Guitar stand ready for use, always able to work as there are no batteries. No need to clip onto Guitar. Easy to read and has a nice rubber case that keeps it well protected from bumps and drops. Had one sent to a friend to tune his Uke, who lives in Texas and likes to play outside.

                          The TC-1S will never need batteries and it's easy to use. Also, the shape makes it easy to put in a shirt pocket and go. All for a really good price! It does take a little getting use to but that is no big deal.
