I just purchased the deluxe suite with the intent of using it for tap tuning and adjusting intonation for the acoustic guitars I am building.

There doesn't seem to be much information on setting up microphones in the manual, and I will have to admit to being pretty inept at the technical side of things, so please be kind! blink.gif

The only thing I have seen so far is the 600 ohm dynamic mic in your accessory list.

I currently own a couple of Shure SM58's and would like to figure out if I can use them. They are 300ohms and have XLR connections.

Can anyone advise me on whether they will work for this application and how I can adapt them to the 1/4" female phono adapter plug that comes with the tuner?



Edit: Oh man! What was I thinking? After stopping by a RS yesterday, I realized my folly. For the price of adapters that might make this possible, I could get a $24 mic that is dedicated to the tuner with no hook up problems. DUH!

Hi Mark,

We do not cover microphone types or placement for tap tuning because depending on the type of mic being used and work environment there are too many variances to try and cover in a single manual.

Roger Siminoff recommends this mic for tap tuning and it can be purchased from his site. He modifies them for tap tuning to offer a smoother response. Take a look at his online store.
