New Seiko Tuners for Musicians of All Kinds -
Seiko, the global leaders in metronome and tuner technology, have released three new tuners that are suitable to musicians of all shapes and styles. Convert any instrument tuner into a clip-on style with the Seiko STM30 (£9.99 UK RRP), which has a connecting point seven times stronger than previous models. The STM30 plugs into the Line-In socket of your regular tuner and then simply clips on to your instrument to enable you to tune directly via the vibrations in the instrument's body - meaning it is not affected by the sound of other instruments or noise. This means that, for example, you can tune an electric guitar, during a performance, without even plugging it in.
The industry standard Seiko STX1N Clip-Style Chromatic Tuner (£16.99 UK RRP) returns in a new, improved form for 2013. Stylish, accurate and reliable, the STX1N's built-in vibration sensor ensures perfect tuning every time, with nine super-bright lights telling you if you're sharp, flat or in tune. These lights make the STX1N ideal for stage use, and the tuner's adjustable angle and flexible face mean you can see it from anywhere. With two selectable modes - sensor and mic - the STX1N is also adaptable to whatever musical environment you find yourself in.
A classic, professional tuner with ultra-thin VU meter, the Seiko SAT1200 Chromatic Tuner (£69.99 UK RRP) makes staying in tune easier than ever before. The backlit SAT1200 has an accurate and smooth response, and with a A0-C8 tuning range, it is ideal for a vast number of instruments. On top if that, it also features Auto Tuning, Manual Tuning and Sound Modes, a super long battery life and a solid, minimalist design.
Available in music stores now, these Seiko tuners are a must for all musicians who are serious about staying in tune, so make sure you try them out. Seiko is distributed in the UK and Eire by John Hornby Skewes & Co. Ltd. For more information, visit the JHS website.
