TC Electronic have described their PolyTune
pedal as the most revolutionary product of NAMM 2010. Make up your own mind... here's the press release:
Strum. Tune. Rock! Welcome to TC Electronic's PolyTuneâ„¢ pedal,
the most revolutionary product of NAMM 2010...
Forget the old days of string-by-string tuning â€“ it's time to join the PolyTuneâ„¢ revolution.
TC Electronic's PolyTuneâ„¢ is the quickest and easiest way to tune your guitar. Simply
strum, tune... and rock!
TC Electronic has just revolutionized guitar tuning at a stroke â€“ or strum â€“ with PolyTuneâ„¢, 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
PolyTuneâ„¢ obviously has a 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 100
LED display, all built to endure life on the road.
Quite simply, PolyTuneâ„¢ is the greatest innovation in guitar tuners for over 30 years. Tuning
could not be easier or quicker.
