How to tune your violin using nSpireMe's tuner!

Play your A string

Sharp?

Turn your fine adjuster anticlockwise until the tuner says “A”, and the needle is in the centre.

Flat?

Turn your fine adjuster clockwise until the tuner says “A”, and the needle is in the centre.


Stuck?

If the fine adjuster doesn’t get you close enough, or you don’t have one (!), then you need to use the peg! Try to push the peg in as you twist.

Sharp? Twist the peg away from the scroll.

Flat? Twist the peg towards the scroll.


Now repeat for D, G and E strings!
