Hi! I just got my Guzheng in the mail from your store yesterday. I am trying to tune it but have never tuned anything before.

I watched your video and read your instructions and pretty much know what to do but I have one question for you.

For example: If I want to tune something to B5 and it shows up as B4 or B3 then what do I do?

Thank you! It is taking me forever to tune the Guzheng...

I also want to add that my tuner is a SAT 501S and not a SAT 500. Don't know if that makes any difference.

If you want a B5, and it shows B4 or B3, then you need to tighten the string a lot.

The pitch goes in the order of C1 D1 E1 F1 G1 A1 B1 C2 D2 E2.......C3 D3......C4........B4 C5........B5 C6

So you see B4 is an octave lower from B5.

Seiko 501 is an upgraded version of the 500. It doesn't make any difference.
