I'm very happy with my Seiko ST 747-200. You can calibrate it from 435Hz to
446Hz. It can read the lowest notes on my 64 chrom and the highest notes on
my F# diatonic. But the coolest feature is that in the upper left corner of
the display, it reads out exactly how many cents sharp or flat you are. With
the ability to tune notes exactly 2 cents flat, etc. I've found it very easy
to create just tuned harps.
These tuners are very inexpensive. I think mine was $20 at Elderly. Of
course it's not as accurate as a strobe, but it is the most accurate digital
tuner I've used, and I've owned 5 or 6 different models.
