The idea for the revolutionary Robot Guitar auto-tuning system came to Chris Adams in a fit of frustration. Aggravated that he couldn't keep his guitar in tune and that he was spending so much time trying to he imagined a system that would automatically tune a guitar in no-time-flat. Also, a system that could switch effortlessly between multiple tunings, keep a guitar perfectly intonated, and even change the strings. Over a period of 10 years, the professional guitar tech perfected a lightweight and foolproof system that tunes a guitar precisely and automatically in only a few seconds. "I wanted to create something that would respect the tonal concept of the instrument without changing it."Adams explains.
