Change the batteries regardless of what the display says. Fresh batteries make a huge difference.I just got one; having some trouble getting readings from it. When you hit the drum the light should blink, right? Well, it does - and then it doesn't ... so it seems like the device goes to sleep - so I'm continually tapping trying to get a reading, and nothing. I'm using the "shipped with" batteries, and the charge life indicator looks good. I just don't know why it keep "sleeping" or "going dark" on me. Has this happened to anyone else? Thanks
Some quick tips:I bought one as well a week or so ago. I've only used it once on my snare. It works pretty good, but I have yet to master it. I can't wait to have some time to mess with it more.

Thanks!This is a fantastic list! Over my time using the Tune Bot I've stumbled onto doing a lot of these things too, but I've never been motivated enough to post up such a detailed reference. Great stuff!
My one add-on tip is I often tune the tension rod 180* from where I tap as I go around the head. One thing using a Tune Bot has made me much more aware of is the effect of a head not being perfectly seated and centered on a drum. I think that's often why you can get wildly different readings from one particular tension rod; the imbalance is causing the head to throw off weird overtones that the Tune Bot is trying to make sense of.
