Strum Tune Rock The TC Electronic PolyTune is now shipping
March 1, 2010
PolyTune was named ‘Best in Show’ at NAMM 2010! That was just the start of it, though, because it opened the door to a flood of other awards in the guitar media.
Guitar Player bestowed its Editors' Pick on the tuner but there’s even better news because from today PolyTune is available worldwide.
So what is all the fuss about?
Put simply, guitarists and bass players can forget the old days of string-by-string tuning. TC Electronic’s PolyTune is the quickest and easiest way to tune your guitar because it is the world’s first polyphonic guitar tuner. This cutting-edge tuning technology revolutionizes tuning and accomplishes what has been deemed "impossible" until now: tuning all strings simultaneously! Simply strum and PolyTune will tell you which strings need tuning. Tune up and you’re ready to rock.
PolyTune has an amazing chromatic tuner as well, rivaling the best current tuning technology out there, with an amazing +/- 0.5 cent accuracy. MonoPoly, another unique new TC Electronic technology, recognizes whether you play one or more strings and seamlessly switches between the polyphonic or the chromatic tuner on the fly.
PolyTune offers unprecedented visibility using an ambient light sensor, which automatically matches the intensity of the super bright LEDs to its surroundings. This ensures that the PolyTune display can be seen in any lighting conditions.
True Bypass makes sure that PolyTune preserves the integrity of your precious tone. It allows for the signal to flow unaffected when the pedal is bypassed and for silent tuning once engaged.
The PolyTune pedal chassis features a diecast aluminum box, heavy-duty footswitch and 108 LED display, all built to endure life on the road.
Price: $149 MSRP (USD)
