Default Ears versus Tuners

I suspect those commenting here may be too young to remember the days before tuners. I think tuners have done more to improve piping than almost any other new technology. Before the wide spread use of tuners, grade 4and 5 bands were almost impossible to listen to as the tuning was performed (often tho not always) by a PM who had no idea other than his/her own ear. Tuners have changed all that and although not perfect, most bands are now at least close to being in tune. A vast improvement over the previous situation.
