Tuner Accuracy

Recommended Posts

Anyone know the tuning accuracy of the built-in tuner on the Spider V?  I was looking at tuners that were more accurate than the clip-on so I hjust wanted to see how accurate the existing one I had in the amp was...

I like the clip on better. I hate having to stop, turn on the light, and  push buttons just to check the tuning. Clip on is always on, bright clear and readable.

I agree with Colek98. Although I don't mind the internal Spider V tuner at close range, it is hard to see at distance and most often not convenient depending where the amp is, and even harder to decipher on my older FBV MKII pedal board, so I too prefer either a clip on and/or a pedal tuner. Much faster/easier to see. Also to note, I love my polytuners. SO fast and easy to see the entire 6 string picture at a glance. All that being said however, when I was in a music store the other day, noodling on a V120, it was great to have instant and easy access to the internal tuner since every guitar I picked off the wall was out of tune .... lol.

I'd say it's neither especially great nor especially horrible.  Comparable to the tuner in, say, a Blackstar ID:Core.  If you're really worried about it, maybe I just got lucky with this, but I picked up a Monoprice Stage Right tuner pedal for $20 out of curiosity, basically, and it's the best tuner I've ever owned.
