Post Earvana Compensated Tuning Systems!
Hey guys, I was doing some research and I ran into these... Earvana Compensated Tuning Systems.
These seemed to be pretty interesting and I think they would solve a lot of problems with playing chords
in tune with each other and more! They have a lot of different styled Guitar nuts! Check it out!

Are they similar to those Buzz Feiten tuning systems?

(I haven't done my research, so sorry for knowing so little.)

I've always hated that little tuning discrepancy I get with my guitars, but ONLY if the change is really huge. I dunno, though. Are my ears untrained enough that I don't get THAT bothered with the tiniest #s and bs? I know I can hear ones that are close to a half step up or down, but the ones in between are really hard to hear.

I think that was more of a doyouguysreallyhearthat kinda inquiry haha.

Also, will this work good with those crooked frets?

similar as in "they both improve the intonation"

but otherwise they work differently

I don't see the point in buzz feiten really... you need to use a tuner with offsets or whatever...
with the earvana you could just tune normally

You don't need this if you have true temperament frets installed.

Price isn't bad, really. Maybe I should get one of these & try it out.

Locking nut is a lot more expensive. :wink:
I'm reduced to being a cheap-ass in these times.

One of my buddies got one of these installed on his ESP horizon

He asked me to play a Dmaj7, then play the SAME shape an octave higher. Pretty much 5th, and at the 17th fret of the A string... It was amazing. Every note completely in tune.

It must be an amazing feeling to play any notes all over the fretboard with perfect intonation.

Eh, I don't cringe when I listen to a Zeppelin or Jeff Beck album, and I know for a fact those guys only intonated for the 12th fret.

Hmmm yeah that's true about the zep thing..but I wonder if things can sound better if they're all a little out of tune with each other...or if perfectly in tune zep songs would sound better...or we wouldn't notice

Maybe you will someday, if you keep improving your ear.

Has been this way for me. And the missus, who's a classical musician, recently remarked on how out of tune Beck's guitar was on Blow By Blow. I'd not noticed, but she could really hear it. That's what playing a fretless instrument from age three will do for your hearing, I guess.

I don't think much of the Evertune because I love bends and vibrato, they're the reason I still play guitar. You have to compromise its function to some extent if you want to be able to hear bends and vibrato.
