The fun of correcting unisons #2696432

I use an ETD for the middle strings and tune the bichord and outers aurally. When some unisons need correcting I find it very satisfactory to do this in an analytic way.

To do this, starting on the string with the longest NSL, I apply my lever with slight torque CW to see if it immediately starts beating. If it does not I apply it CCW for the same check. If neither produce beats I move to another string and repeat and then to the last of the choir.

After finding which string can easily be set beating I double check by muting the left of a triple then the right and compare which pair beats most.

By using this double check I can ascertain if it is an outer or the middle of a choir that requires adjusting.

I do this because it works for me and saves me digging out the ETD.

The good news is that as time passes I find that I'm re-tuning these stray choirs more infrequently.

Good process of elimination. Works for me too.

Unison tuning is not easy to master. Congratulate you find the right way to tune it.
