BASIC TIMP-TUNER OPERATION - TAPPING THE DRUM AND READING THE DISPLAY
ABOUT THIS DEMONSTRATION: The player uses a light repeating tapping to get a continuous reading of the note ("C") on the Timp-Tuner™ display. The pitch accuracy is shown by the motion of the bar pattern. Whenever you see the bar pattern moving up, the note sounded is sharp. When you see it moving down, the note is flat. The faster it moves, the greater the tuning error. When the bar pattern is motionless,the note is right on pitch.
Here the note ("C") is initially slightly flat, as indicated by the bar pattern's downward motion. Then the player makes an adjustment with the pedal, and the C is briefly in tune (bar pattern motionless). He then goes way sharp (briefly all the way to a flat C#), and then comes down slowly and ends up with an accurate C.
