Ok so I am having an issue with the tuner on my Spider IV. I try to tune my guitar to standard tuning, and while the LED screen says it is in tune, the guitar is way out of tune. When I use an external tuner it is just fine. But then the LED screen shows me out of tune. Has anyone else had this issue? and How can it be fixed?

I have heard of this, and there does not seem to be any way to calibrate the onboard tuner. You could try a factory reset, but note that you will lose any custom patches you have set up in the amp (save them onto a computer using Spider Edit).

It’s a known issue that the tuners on all the Spider amps are crap, but that’s a pretty minor thing in my book.
