I don’t know if the device attached to the English horn is to check intonation, to amplify, or something else completely. Anyone out there know?

From the YouTube page (since the video isn’t really all about the English horn):
El?na Garan?a performs Gounod’s “Repentir” from her new album “Meditation” on Deutsche Grammohpon.

  1. It looks like a clip on tuner, but not one I’ve ever seen. I also can’t imagine having it that close to my eye and at that low of an angle.

  2. I know, I know, maybe it’s a miniature TV and she’s watching something else?! 😉

  3. I just googled clip on tuner and it looks like a guitar tuner. Although personally, I would pick the Hello Kitty clip on tuner myself.

  4. Just for fun, I clipped my Snark tuner onto my EH at this point on the horn and was surprised at how well it works. You wouldn’t want to try and read a meter this close, but you can easily see if your tuner has red and green LED’s indicating which direction you need to go. BTW, love reading your blog.

  5. Glad you like the blog, Ned. Thanks! 🙂

    I would be so very distracted by those red and green lights, I fear I’d “stop” if I saw red! 😉

  6. Yeah, I think if I get a clip-on tuner I’d want something fun, Sus!
