    hello , i bought the roadie bass and when i m trying to tune i have a lot of problems with environement sound . sometimes the head starts to rotate even when i m not tuning but have it in my hand when changing from one tuning peg to another . i find this really strange , can you explain ?
    i have run the test from the settings menu a sometimes the current and position test fail , sometimes it will pass the test .

    i m tuned in a drop c variation and the tunes does have diffulculties with 'hearing' the low c , it doesn t respond at all on that string . 

    there is one other thing that bothers me , when i check the tuning with other tuners most of the time the strings are of with 8 cents or so . 

    what do i do , is the tuner broken ? all i know so far is that i can not use it this way..

    hope there is a sollution for these problems , 

    all the best

    i just saw that roadie 3 is coming up , i am very curious how this gonna be an improvement because i have tried 2 different bass tuners thinking the first roadie bass was defect but the 2nd one also didnt do the trick at all in a not that noisy environment . first seeing then , maybe , believing . this has to be really good though to remove the bad taste bass roadie has given me . 

     

    all the best

    @Pim thanks for your comment. For Roadie 3, we will improve on the audio algorithm to filter out the noise better. However, you should know that Roadie 3 will not tune bass guitars. It will tune everything else and with enhanced noise immunity. The struggle is that when the body of the instrument reverberates around the frequency that Roadie is tuning at, it becomes very difficult to control. This is especially true in the case of the Roadie Bass (since most detectable instrument reverberations would occur at bass frequencies). That is why you had this experience with the Roadie Bass. So by default, if you are going for a Roadie 3 to tune instruments other than bass guitars, you should definitely observe improved noise immunity. If you have more questions, shoot us an email directly support@bandindustries.com and we'll be happy to answer them.

    Hi Karine , thanks for your extensive reply , i really appreciate it . i bought the roadie bass for my electric guitar because i use some kind of drop c tuning (65.41hz , strings daddario 110-7 , lowest string gauge is 59) . when i look the tech specs of roadie 3 it should be okay . i think i understand what you are saying about the bass frequenties but since the specs of roadie bass applied for me at the time but could not live up to what it should do (and put me in some quite nasty situations gigging as well a number of broken strings) i have to see some very good results before buying (not having a single doubt to use it or not before gigging) . if this is the case this is a incredible tool , hopefully this roadie will be as good as promised ! thanks again for the reply & all the best !
