Re: EverTune

I guess it would come in handy in a gig situation.

I'm only a bedroom player & don't mind spending 30 seconds to get in tune, so **** it.

Re: EverTune

I'd buy one to try if they were a little cheaper.

Not saying I think they are overpriced, they aren't, a lot of work went into creating them so they actually should cost a little more, I was surprised when I saw the price (I thought it would be more like 500ish).

I'd put one on my main guitar if I could try one first.

Re: EverTune

I think I'll pass.. I don't see myself taking a router to my LPs anytime soon just to install some gadget.

I'd buy a Robot first, and that'll likely never happen either.

Re: EverTune

...Too heavy....for a Les Paul.

EDIT:

However, that might be just the trick to fix the balance issues on an Epiphone G-400...whether it works or not...

Re: EverTune

Let me get this straight.....
$330 to buy, $200 to $300 to install, so MINIMUM $550 and it involves cutting timber out..... Heck - most of my guitars cost less than that (never bought new, always used).

And you have to tune her up anyway - the EverTune just "keeps the strings in the exact tune set by the player". Then the spring/lever keeps the tension from changing.

Strange thing is, I have Bigsby, I have Floyd-Rose and I have hard-tails - none of them go out of tune so badly that I can't tweak a tuning peg and get them in tune again on the fly.
And it rarely happens anyway.
Plus read the bit about string bending. Sure - you CAN - but it sounds kinda weird to me.

Re: EverTune




Jesus Christ.. Far too bloody complex to take on stage unless you had about three guitars..

What will they come up with next.. A pair of gloves that fingers all the notes for you after programming it?
I can just imagine a thousand and one bedroom players downloading 'RockGlove ' apps from places like Amazon.

Stairway to Heaven... $1.50
Classical Gas..............$2.95.
Highway to Hell..........$2.00



F*ck me, I must be getting old....

The good old days eh?

Re: EverTune

And the more I look, the more confused I get.....

The godamned saddle moves towards the nut!

What is that gonna do to intonation fer fooks sake!

Every time I change strings I check intonation (accurate tunes and an allen key - it's the work of moments, no more) and I can finger chord shapes all over the neck. This thing puzzles me so bad my BRAIN MUSCLE hurts.....

And man - Lowell could sure sing sweet.

Re: EverTune

Like all these new fangled gadgets.. Fine..Until they go wrong and with gears and motors, sensors ect, it will only be a matter of time before something goes arse upwards...Then you are buggered..

I bought one of those red knob Fender Twins some years ago and after about a year the volume pot gave up.
Do you think I could get into the thing to put another pot in.. Jesus! it was all part of a bloody printed circuit board. I had to send it back to Fender UK and it cost me £150.. Yep! for a volume control pot to be put in..

I got rid of the thing quick and have since gone back to basics..

These days, I mainly use a 59 Bassman on stage.. No bells whistles and channel switching. Just plug in and away you go, with a great tone.

I must admit I do channel switch in the old fashioned way though.. I simply jump a short lead from the normal channel to the bright channel and use both volumes..
If I need a bit of break up at a low volumes, I'll kick in a Fulldrive 2 pedal.

My motto is keep it simple.. The more gadgets, the more there is to go wrong.

+1.. KISS, Keep It Simple Stupid. I like gadgets but that's just a bit too much IMO. Spending 500+ dollars on something just seems a bit too much to me. It just seems to me that pros should be able to tune their guitars fast and they should stay in tune for some time unless there is something wrong with the axe. Just my 2c.

The best invention for guitar as far as I am concerned was probably the floor tuner. I used to do six nights a week in a steamy night club in London back in the 70's and tuning was a nightmare. There was no quiet place to go to tune with a tuning fork and once on stage with the cabaret you couldn't start tuning when they were talking between numbers.
Nowadays you can simply hit a pedal and bypass the amp if you need to check and do it all standing there looking at a bank of LED's.
