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.

      Comments about TASCAM TC-1S Chromatic Tuner:

      This tuner is better than I expected. I bought it because I thought it'd be neat to have a rechargeable tuner, and the solar part seemed nifty too. However, it turns out this thing out paces several fancier, more expensive tuners I've used. It is very fast, smooth, and seems pretty darn tight with its accuracy. Also, the colored part of the case is a removable silicon-esque shell, so that's fun.

        Comments about TASCAM TC-1S Chromatic Tuner:

        This is a chromatic tuner that will let you tune your instrument to the
        exact pitch. It is very sensitive, and so will respond to extremely
        small changes in pitch. It has strobe, needle, fine, and microphone
        modes that make adjusting your instrument until it is in tune easy.
        It is a precision tuner that will not disappoint you.

        love this little guy.
        took it apart to see what kind of battery.
        It uses a PC motherboard battery,which will last a very long time!

        no backlight makes it hard to see in very dark places no big deal unless your a back stage guitar tech.

        if you don't want the strap "theft-loss"to come off just tape the latch or get a screw down type from your local hardware store.

                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.
