I guess... Whenever I'm having trouble with the tuner half the time it's because the bar (we have a marimba) isn't placed right, so the pitch shouldn't be the problem. But since sciolywiz has a pvc instrument like the one in the video, not sure what the problem is.C2 really isn't that low...I believe that it's equivalent to the open C string on a 'cello. Any decent tuner should be able to pick it up. If it's not picking up, try putting the tuner really close to whatever you're trying to tune and give it a good whack (by "it", I mean the pipe/bar, not the tuner).
just a regular instrument tuner you would use in music class or whatever... something like this:how are you guys tuning your instruments? Do you have an electric tuner that shows the note or frequency of the note just played, or do you have some other device?
I was thinking about this the other day. I haven't tried it but you should be able to tune your instrument using your computer, a microphone and a program like Audacity (Free Download). The waveforms are likely to be complex, so be sure you're looking at the fundamental. In the past, some have had problems on some instruments with an electronic tuner locking on to the wrong note. This could have been due to their inexperience with the instrument/tuner.how are you guys tuning your instruments?
