I want to see some post video of the person who thinks they have the worst ear for tuning playing their ukulele that was tuned solely by ear....The winner will get the soon to be out KC-o2 New faster response uke specific tuner made by Kala that Clips on and just speeds to respond when the notes are plucked. has mode for Chromatic, c tuning (Gcea) and d tuning (adf#b). Tune away!!!!

I'm pretty good at relative pitch. I can match notes with the best of them. I think it might have to do with my radio manufacturing days and staring at a scope and tuning meter eight hours a day tuning out "beat" notes.

Trouble is, I have no idea what note is being played without some sort of reference to get me started. :confused:

Surely people are going to get deliberately out of tune to win, are you still delirious after you bout of man flu;)

I think most people on here do know how to, but it's difficult if your instruments intonation sucks^^

Hell yeah!

MGM, if you are really challenged to judge just put all the entrants name in a hat and draw it. Just put me in 20 times for suggesting he idea! Lol. :D I kid. But seriously if you are really challenged to judge you can do a random drawing.

Wow. Thank you very much. One of the very few times when being the worst has a winning advantage.

Thank you MGM for sponsoring the contest. My wife, all 5 of our dogs, and I think probably our 3 cats also thank you for the contest.

Mike, thanks for your congratulations. But your Ukuleles really do sound much better then mine when we are finished tuning.

MGM, I'm not sure how to send you an email with my address. So I hope a private message will suffice.

Have a Great Day,
Jim

OK. I am very impressed. I won this contest for an electronic tuner. Mike said he was mailing it out the next day when I sent him my address. I was expecting to see it in a couple of weeks. I think it was just a couple of days ago I gave him my address. Anyhow it showed up TODAY!!! I live in Indiana and Mike is in Hawaii.

The tuner is a Kala KC02. Small, easy to use, 3 different settings. Even changes color when you get in tune.

Just found out Mike has a web presence. His link is: http://stores.shop.ebay.com/Musicguymics-Room

Thank you Mike.

Have a Great Day,
Jim
