Nicky said:Hi, guys, simple question if I may, bought a second hand serviced gemeinhardt 2sp for my daughter from a repair centre.
She was excited with it played at home ect, but when she went to her school lesson her teacher said its out of tune. Now we went back to the repair guy, he got my daughter to play each note against a electronic tuner and it was coming up fairly good, we did notice that she couldnt hold an exact note, eg it went up and down a bit from her air pressure, but pretty much every note flicked the green light on and was within one division of the perfect note.
What do we do, is the repair tech right or the teacher right, we dont want her going back to school saying to her teacher that shes wrong, not a good thing to do.
How do we test the unit ourselves, can an instrument play a c on the electronic tuner and still not sound like a c. Sounds silly doesnt it, but I hope people undertstand what Im saying
Tell the teacher that you took it to repair tech and they did something, then played it to a tuner and it was good now. It's sort of the truth and defuses a situation. Then if teacher still says daughter is out of tune find a plan B.
