From Our Research Team:
Virtual Strobe Technology with Tone Generator and Metronome!The V-SAM's "tuner mode" expands upon the Peterson VS-1 with an even wider variety of alternate temperaments and the ability to select temperament tonal roots. In addition, the user can create and store custom temperaments and use them with the same flexibility as preset ones. The V-SAM automatically detects a note being played in real-time and is accurate to 1/1000th of a semitone. It can transpose displayed notes based on any of 12 scale notes. The ultra-wide 410.0 to 490.0Hz range of the V-SAM's Concert A pitch reference makes it the premium choice for "Early Music" instruments such as harpsichord, lute, recorder, and Baroque flute.
The "Bass Shift" feature allows effortless tuning of double bass (including instruments with fingerboard extensions), tuba, and euphonium. A built-in speaker is included for the audio tone generator/tuner, and a pre-amplified signal is provided to drive a P.A. or headphones. These new and expanded features permit definitive measurement and control of the intonation of orchestral instruments, allowing tuning and real-time scale rehearsal for stringed instruments such as violin, cello, and concert harp as well as all brass and woodwind instruments in all keys, all tonal roots, and all temperaments-a worldwide first!
The high-output tone generator within the V-SAM offers an unprecedented 10 octaves of audible tones, which conform to a selected preset or custom temperament and are adjustable in 0.1cent increments. This permits ear-training possibilities previously unavailable in a hand-held device.

Professional Grade Tuner
by Don Munson from Charlotte, NCThis offers the most precise tuning that I have ever encountered. But, be prepared to sit down with the manual. It offers many options, tone generator, metronome, programmability, that I will probably... read more [+] never use. But, the tuning parameters that can be employed make it much more versatile than any tuner that I've ever dealt with. close [-]

The GREATEST tuner ever!!!
by Christopher Paglia from Byfield, MAI have the original version of this tuner the VS-1. It is truly the greatest tuner I have ever used. Various tuning presets and you can set your own. At first I didn't think I could find a use for pre... read more [+]sets, but this thing made me a tuning fanatic. Occasionally when recording I will actually temper guitars for certain chords (a little extreme for some perhaps). The only thing to keep in mind with this tuner is if you are recording an instrument you used this tuner on, you had better use this tuner on all the rest of the instruments on that recording or you WILL be slightly off! I also got the StroboStomp to take with me on the go - it is not only just as good, it has some neat DI features - check it out! close [-]

Keeps you perfectly in tune
by vince from Des Moines, IA, USAEasy to use strobe tuner -- able to save your own tunings, so your favorite alternate tuning is just a knob twist away. The ability to tune other instruments is a plus in multi-instrument families (we... read more [+] have guitar, flute, piano) and it will work for all. The audio tones are rather rough and coming from the tiny speaker in the V-SAM sure doesn't enhance them...I never use this, just the strobe. Overall, easy to use, and very accurate. close [-]
