SMG Review: Go Go Tuners TT-1

SVH took Go Go Tuners TT-1 out for a test drive, check it out!


There are many tuners on the market that clip on to your headstock and most all of them really work the same way. They effectively get you in tune very quickly in just about any setting. They all seem to work the same by using either a built-in mic or the vibration of the instrument to pick up the note values and the GoGo Tuner TT-1 works the same way. However, this little puppy has some pretty cool little features and conveniences that make it stand out a bit above the rest.

The main features include its fast accuracy up to ±.5 cent and a range that covers from A0(27.5Hz) – C8(4186.00Hz), and can be calibrated for alternate tunings with a pitch range from 430-450hz. The TT-1 also precisely tunes a multitude of instruments including acoustic guitar, electric bass, violin, viola, ukulele, electric guitar, brass and woodwind instruments, and has 5 settings: Chromatic/Guitar/Bass/Violin/Viola. It uses a single battery and comes with an Auto Power-Off function that preserves the battery life…. something I think any musician can appreciate.


The other stand out features include a large bright LED screen, which illuminates red when out of tune and green when in tune, while simultaneously showing you if you are sharp or flat. The 360 degree swivel arm bracket makes positioning the TT-1 a snap in any direction. The design of the unit makes this a great tool for learning note names as you practice. For example, if playing scales slowly, the tuner will pick up each note. This will help you develop a better sense of what notes are where on your fretboard, aiding in the development of your ear to distinguish pitches accurately. The swivel also makes it easy to hide the bulk of the tuner behind your headstock, therefore leaving it intact to “tune on the fly” during gigs without having a huge eyesore on the end of your axe. The clamp is very rugged and durable and has soft rubber material inside the clamp that clings tightly without scuffing or scratching your prized instrument.

With these few added features and intuitive functionality, the TT-1 is one of the coolest little headstock tuners on the market today and at a price of $29.99 a smart buy on a tool of the trade you really can’t live without.

About Scott “SVH” Von Heldt

Singer and guitarist Scott Von Heldt (aka: SVH) joins a new breed of heavy music and offers up a glimpse into the future of the primitive. From entrancing tribal rhythms to unparalleled vocal incantations, SVH has long been admired by his peers and continues to push the envelope to create music with unrelenting passion and intensity. Scott broke out into the original metal scene of Northern Ohio at the age of 17 by releasing his first solo guitar record "To Each His Own". SVH went on to join local metal giants Vatican (later renamed Marquis de Sade) and soon became a local guitar legend with the release of his second solo record "Cries of Silence". In 1994 Scott gave his full attention to the formation of his new band Theater of Madness. The group went on to dominate the local music scene, releasing their debut CD "The Demo" and opening for national acts ranging from Quiet Riot, Slaughter, and LA Guns, to metal masters more in their vein such as Suffocation, Anthrax, and Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson. After many years of trudging through the trenches in search of a record company, Scott formed his own indie label Dead City Records and began work on Mantra, the debut from a new and improved version of his former band now named KURAI. Scott moved to Los Angeles in 2002 and went on to join Ivan de Prume (White Zombie) and Martin St. Pierre (Cirque du Soliel) in the creation of HEALER, a band combining the elements of World music with Modern Metal! The bands debut "Awakening" has been hailed as one of the most original CD's released this decade and continues to garnish rave reviews. SVH, recently lent his extreme vocal abilities to the SHEESH E.P. by LA thrash/funk quartet Baron Von Sloth. On Halloween 2008 Scott released his first book of the Mystic Art of Self-Discovery series entitled "Mind Over Metal". In March of '09 SVH joined HEAD; the band formed by former KoRn guitarist Brian "HEAD" Welch. The group is currently on tour. Scott continues to add a unique sentiment to heavy music by infusing raw intensity with spiritual insight and global awareness!
