Can you please explain the difference between the DBO and DBH tunings? Could one also use these with a regular guitar tuned to Open A, D or G or are they specifically for an instrument played with a bar or slide? How would one use these to tune to Open E?

Hi,
For open A, D & G major tunings, DB0 gives you pure major thirds (meaning intervals), DBH gives you half tempered major thirds, we developed the two Sweeteners for Dobro/Resophonic instruments, but they are after all just offsets of a tuning, try them on regular guitar and see what you think.
More info here

Depending on what tuner you have, open E tuning may also be affected as above.

I'm actually something of a Peterson junkie, as I have a VS-1 (given to my son), an original StroboStomp, a StroboFlip, iStroboSoft on my iPhone and I just got a StroboClip (which, I think, is the first tuner I've had that has the DBO/DBH sweeteners). I play in Open E a lot, but on an regular acoustic, not on a Dobro.

Hi,
The Dobro offsets were introduced around 2006 and are in the Peterson StroboStomp2, StroboFlip, StroboSoft, StroboRack, StroboClip, StroboStomp Classic and later versions of the V-SAM tuners.
