Barcus-Berry Soul Mate" Chromatic Tuner
Charleston, SC, June 1, 2007 - Barcus-Berry, a manufacturer of transducer/preamp systems and acoustic-electric violins, is proud to announce the newest addition to the line, the Soul Mate™. The Soul Mate™ is a clip-on automatic chromatic tuner with backlight LCD screen that tunes by picking up vibrations directly from your instrument. This remarkable tuner can also easily transpose instruments into any key with extreme accuracy.
The Soul Mate™ works with all fretted, band and orchestral instruments making it a commodity for any musician. Unaffected by outside ambient noise, it has 12-note full range capacity and can easily transpose into all keys with an easy-to-read, illuminated, wide LCD screen that acts like a tuning meter. The Soul Mate™ contains quadra flat tuning, so there is no need to remove a capo to tune a guitar. An intelligent re-calibration button makes it easy to switch from A=430Hz to 449Hz in 1Hz steps or for alternate scales. The Soul Mate™ clearly shows if you are sharp or flat in cents with a tolerance level that is extremely low at +/-0.5 cents by means of quartz crystal, allowing for more accurate tuning. It automatically powers off after three minutes of no vibration signal for optimum battery life. You can also easily attach this to your instrument one-handed with the easy-to-attach clamp. This compact tuner weights only 1.2 ounces, including the 3Volt coin battery and has a non-volatile memory that retains all settings. This tuner is easy to use and comes with an instruction sheet explaining every feature.
Barcus-Berry offers pickups and preamps for pianos, band instruments, orchestral instruments and guitars in addition to its Vibrato-AE™ and Chromatic-AE™ Series acoustic-electric violins.
