Convenient tuning with modes for guitar and bass and a built-in metronome!

TASCAM's TG-7 tuner/metronome combines fast pitch detection with a wide LCD display to make guitar and bass tuning fast and easy. The 5" wide backlit LCD display fits on your amp or pedalboard for quick checks between songs.

The TG-7 includes 12 tuning modes for guitarists, including Guitar, Bass, Drop-D, Open-D, and user-definable scales. A 1/4" guitar in and thru jack allow you to keep the TG-7 wired in all the time.

In addition to features for guitarists, the TG-7 acts as a desktop metronome. The metronome ranges from 30 to 300 BPM with seven accent values, played through a built-in speaker. The LCD also conducts the beat for visual feedback, and Tap Tempo is available for finding the metronome value of your own music. A flip-out stand, music stand clip, and tripod mount offer other mounting options.

Tuner & Metronome, both

One item of note: AFAIK, the metronome only does x/4 time signatures (e.g., 1/4, 2/4, 3/4, etc.) and simple straight 8th's or straight 16th's. However, it DOES have a "Shuffle" setting and this proved to be a miracle worker during my last piano lesson.

(Consider: It was proving to be very difficult to explain to a piano student what exactly the standard sheet music marking of "two 8th notes = 1 dotted eighth note + a sixteenth note" means exactly, beyond the simple assertion that this makes it much easier to write and read such tunes. When i pulled out the metronome and set it to beep out a "shuffle beat" and i saw my student's eyes widen with immediate comprehension, i knew that this impulse buy had just paid for itself, so to speak.)

I took off a point or two for it not being the most-intuitive unit out there. Maybe i'm just getting old, but i had to resort to the manual to figure out how to set the metronome.
It has both a tuner AND an audible metronome in one unit, and that was really my sole impulse for buying it.
I wish ALL tuners and/or metronomes came with that standard tripod-accepting screw-hole. This unit also has fold-out braces -- just like a Qwerty keyboard might have -- so that you can stand it upright. The max volume is too quite to hear above a drumset or amplified guitar (without mic'ing the unit and running it through your PA) but who would honestly expect it to be THAT loud, anyway?
I bought this as a Stupid Deal of The Day. I really didn't need yet another tuner, but couldn't resist the deal when I realized I could probably never buy a tuner and metronome both in the same device for even 2x or 3x that cost.

This tuner is not accurate, neither by plugging in an instrument nor by using its built-in microphone.

This is personally tested and verified in several ways.
1. Plugging in a piano/keyboard and test the frequency detection at 438Hz using middle octaves
2. Test the mic using a piano, playing its middle octaves.
3. Using several tuned guitars (both electric and acoustic, essentially tuned stage-ready to gig) and find out that it reads our tuning inaccurately. The guitars are tuned to match using Boss and Korg tuners.

The saving grace of this tuner are as follows:
1. The pitch through the "tone" functionality is accurate. I verified this through a well tuned orchestra-grade grand piano. As such, this is my current way of tuning my stringed instruments (ukuleles & guitars) using this tuner.

I will rave about the tone functionality. It tunes 7 octaves using an electronic pitch. It's a simple single-frequency pitch, and that's enough to get the job done. Still~ 7 octaves!

2. The metronome works. Not like that says much, really.

I acknowledge the Tascam brand's quality. My orchestra friends have some nifty Tascam devices for their recording, and the sound being captured is nothing short of amazing.

However, this product falls short of my expectations as I purchased it.

    Comments about TASCAM TG-7 Guitar and Bass Tuner/Metronome:

    There is a trend these days to overload electronic devices with unnecessary functions. Have you priced professional studio time recently? You could spend a lot of money just setting up this unit. Other than that this unit appears to be well built and functional.

        It works pretty good. It takes a engineering degree to figure out all the setting. Maybe that is exaggerated a little but its not really user friendly for a novice. Other than that, its great.

                Very nice tuner. I see why people say they have it taped down because it is a little light and doesn't have a case like a TU-12. But functional and probably more stable durable display than say a Pitch Clip. Not sure how stacks against Snark though.

                    Takes some time to familiarize with navigation but instructions are clear enough and after using enough, no problems.

                    Would not pay full price on it but would recommend to someone if on purchased via Stupid Deal of the Day.

                    This works fine for my beginner students. Not bad for the price for a tuner/metronome combo for someone practicing at home. The plastic housing doesnt appear to be able to withstand performance abuse though playing through you may want to tie it down. It may be better suited for acoustic players. Also, the speaker is not very loud. I recommend it for practicing or for a guitar bag extra.
