The Blair HBT-3 Bagpipe Tuner is a pocket-sized, easy to use and accurate bagpipe tuner full of punch. this is simply an essential bagpipe tuner for anyone tuning their pipes. This tuner is specially programmed and built for the bagpipe scale, meaning each note will be detected and displayed correctly for pipers. Once calibrated, the HBT-3 Bagpipe Tuner will display when a note is sharp or flat and makes tuning easy for all pipers. Adjustable needle speed allows the piper the best possible detection for fine tuning. The HBT-3 Bagpipe Tuner’s LCD also changes colour when the ‘in tune’ calibration frequency is reached to indicate the note is perfect. The device delivers precision accuracy and will detect any pitch fluctuations your bagpipe chanter and drones produce, which means if the blowing is not ‘spot on’, the HBT-3 needle will highlight this. There’s also a ‘velocity’ (v) button which allows you to slow down the needle movement if required. The velocity button gives greater tolerance to pitch and pressure fluctuations, which is useful at times. The HBT-3 calculates movement at 1Hz steps between the ranges of +/-1 cent (Hz) for superior detection and sensitivity. The HBT-3 Bagpipe Tuner is gentle on batteries and has an auto-off function when not used for five minutes. This is simply an essential bagpipe tuner for anyone tuning their pipes. Supplied with HBT bagpipe clip-on microphone.
