Strum! Tune! Rock! PolyTuneâ„¢ is now shipping! Today, guitar and bass tuning changes forever...
Mark this date as the day guitar tuning changed forever because TC Electronic's revolutionary â€“ and now multi-award-winning â€“ PolyTuneâ„¢ guitar tuner is shipping worldwide. Now everyone can find out why the guitar world is going PolyTuneâ„¢ crazy...!
When TC Electronic unveiled PolyTuneâ„¢ at this year's NAMM show we confidently predicted that it would be the product of the show, and guess what? PolyTuneâ„¢ 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 World gave PolyTuneâ„¢ its Platinum Award, Guitar Player bestowed its Editor Pick on the tuner while Guitarist gave it its Choice Award and Premier Guitar its Premier Gear Award. But there's even better news because from today PolyTuneâ„¢ is available worldwide. Now everyone can experience the biggest revolution in tuners in the past 30 years!
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 PolyTuneâ„¢ 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 â€“ PolyTuneâ„¢ will tell you which strings need tuning â€“ tune up and you're ready to rock!
PolyTuneâ„¢ 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.
PolyTuneâ„¢ 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 PolyTuneâ„¢ display can be seen in any lighting conditions. So whatever the gig, whatever the light, whatever the situation, guitarists can now strum, tune and rock in an instant.
True Bypass makes sure that PolyTuneâ„¢ 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 PolyTuneâ„¢ pedal chassis features a diecast aluminum box, heavy duty footswitch and 108 LED display, all built to endure life on the road.
Quite simply, PolyTuneâ„¢ is the greatest innovation in guitar tuners for over 30 years. Pricing and Availability:
