    ....all those dave era vh albums were half-stepped to enhance daves vocals, in return enhanced the vh sound. It makes it 5 tons heavier.I hope to here that next album.

    I will also hope the new album is tuned down a half step. 1984 had somes tunes that were tuned normal such as hot for teacher and drop dead legs. It really sucks when your playing guitar with the albums and then they tune normal!!!!!!!

    So THAT's why all you lucky folks got more than one Wolfgang...So you can have one tuned normal and one down a half step eh? But you know, I'd love to challenge someone to see how fast they can retune a Wolf. I'm prety quick with that hex wrench you know...LOL!

    sounds like an intonation problem I don't own a Dtuna but the fact that your going down a half step will knock out your intonation a bit.
    Try tuning your guitar to D and then dropping your d down to c if you want real heavy, (just thicken up those strings!)

    You have to do a setup on the D-Tuna if your tuning down a half step. All that requires is tuning the guitar with the D-Tuna in the out position to Dflat, then popping it in and adjusting the tiny set screw so that Eflat is right. The reason it's out of whack is because it was set to standard tuning at the factory.

    ya it is true that all the roth era songs were tuned down half a step. except jump!
    cuz when i play guitar along with it its the same! and my guitar is tuned regularly.
    thats the only song ive noticed thats normal. i think most of 5150 is tuned down half a step too. and other stuff of course.
