Simple double bass tuner to tune up your double bass. This is for the standard EADG double bass tuning.
Tuning your double bass can be a difficult task for you if you are just beginning double bass. The good news is, the more you do it, the easier it becomes. A nicely tuned double bass can make your music sound a lot better and help you greatly while you're are just getting the hang of finger placement for notes.
Click on the note for the string you want to tune and then turn the tuning pegs on your double bass and match it up with the note that is being played.
Caution: If your double bass is extremely out of tune or if you are replacing the strings on the double bass, and tuning it the first time, you have to be careful. If this is the case then tune each string a little at a time and then go on to the next string. You want to keep the tension on each string fairly equal. The bridge is not glued or attached to the double bass, it is held there by the tension of the strings. If the tension varies too much it might cause the bridge to collapse. Also while you are tuning pay attention to the bridge, it should always be perpendicular to your double bass and be straight, not angled.
Tip: Make several passes tuning each of the strings. For example you might have noticed that if you have tuned all the strings once, and then back to the first one you tuned, it might be off a little bit. This is because you are increasing or decreasing the tension on each of the strings as you tune it and the instrument's body might bend ever so slightly due to this difference in tension. This causes the other strings to slightly change in pitch. So make sure you keep on checking and tuning the strings until all are in tune, so make several passes.

What's New in Version 2.0.1
- Fixed no sound issue, which confused users a lot. It was caused by mute switch on. In this version the sound is active even in silent mode, with mute switch on. Thank you for the feedback.
Great for hearing the sound of the strings while you tune
Great app if you have the time to tune your bass.
Guys, don't waste your money. All the strings make too low of a sound.
