As I often experiment with anything "steel", I sat down the other day in front of a digital keyboard and my steel to see which of the sweetners matched the keyboard best.

Playing single notes plus chords on the keyboard, I would play open single notes and open chords with no pedals and with A & B pedal, 0 fret. I was looking for what matched the best, according to my ear when using each sweetner.

This past weekend I did a gig here in town with me on steel and Danny Muhammad on bass (fantastic steel player along with about 5 other instruments and steel player for Ray Price for about 14 years). On breaks we discussed tuning different ways just as has been spoken on the Forum before, Just Intonation vs. Equal Temperament. The discussion sparked me to perform the experiment spoke of above using my Stomp tuner.

All sweetners did a good job, but I chose the EM9 & EP9 as my choice that sound the best with the keyboard, with the least waver sounds with the keyboard.

It seems the EM9 used the 440 string tunings with the exception of the 3rds which were tuned flat to 438.5 (per Buddy Emmons).

Anyhow, this is my findings and opinions.

Got one a few days ago,Just about the coolest tuner I've ever seen...if someone figures out a clamping system to attach it to a steel guitar leg?let me know!


Here’s how I solved this issue. I ordered a mic stand stand cell phone mount from Amazon. 14 bucks or so. It didn’t fit around the leg, but I had a iPad mount that I don’t use anymore. So I mounted the cell mount on to it. It actually allows me a lot more freedom for adjustment this way. As you can see I’m running straight to the volume pedal and I’m using the Strobostomp HD to power my pedal board. Love this tuner. I finally tuned my E9 JT with my Es at 440. Sounds great and no issues playing in a band setting either. Easy to program too! Can’t say enough good things about this tuner.

I have had one of these for a while now.
Is it always ‘on’ when there is an input jack going in?
Or is there a way of turning it off without unplugging it?

PS. I have never read the instructions.... Very Happy

Hi David,

In the battery compartment, you'll find a 3-position switch.
The three positions are:

TB = True Bypass (tuner off unless muted)
BB = Buffered Bypass (tuner off unless muted, buffer on)
MN = Monitor Mode (tuner on whether muted or not)

In True Bypass mode (TB) you can turn the tuner off with a stomp and leave the cord plugged in.

I don't know why you would bother putting this tuner on a clamp on the leg of your guitar -- the whole idea of the much larger display is so you can easily read it from the floor :-} !!!

Just got one, a lot of choices for which E9 tuning. Any thoughts out there about SE9 (later Jeff Newman tuning) vs. EM9 ("Emmons" stye E9)?
