Tuning used to be a necessary evil. The last barrier before you could
get truly rocking. But now, tuning is ready to get blasted into the 21st
century with PolyTuneTM, the stomp-box sized tuning miracle from TC Electronic!
is the world's first polyphonic tuner - a multiple patents pending,
game-changing total tuning turnaround that will have future guitarists
wondering how we ever got by without it.
It couldn't be done - until we did it.
The magic lies in a never before seen approach to tuning aimed at speed, accuracy and ease of use. With PolyTuneTM,
you simply strum all strings on your guitar or bass at once, and it
will immediately tell you which strings need tuning! This cutting-edge
tuning technology revolutionizes the way you tune and accomplishes what
has been deemed 'impossible' until now: tuning all strings
simultaneously! It really is as simple as strum - tune - rock, and this
quantum leap forward allows you to get in tune fast, and back to doing
what you love: playing.
Strum - Tune - Rock
Providing an instant overview of the pitch of all your strings, PolyTuneTM
is an invaluable tool in live-settings, where it is essential to be in
tune quickly and ready to play. Crowds don't want to wait around, they
want to rock, and, let's face it, so do you. Besides live use, this
stomp box will deliver like no other in any situation where you want to
get tuning out of the way and focus on play.
Equally effective for guitar and bass, PolyTuneTM
is extremely flexible as well. The reference pitch can be set to your
preference and ranges from 435Hz to 445Hz. This guarantees you'll be
able to play along with anyone, with any instrument and in any
Drop it like it's hot
If you are a
guitarist that likes to play at a different pitch than standard, this
is your go-to pedal, allowing for dropped tunings from E-flat all the
way down to B. Whatever your pitch or tuning, PolyTuneTM is a sure-fire way to be spot-on, with an accuracy of just plus/minus 1cent.
Besides the Polyphonic tuner, PolyTuneTM
has a chromatic tuner that can hang with the best current tuning
technology out there, with an amazing 0.5 cent accuracy. But we are
never satisfied with the current norm, and added some features to make
this tuner's chromatic section stand out from the crowd.
start with the two separate chromatic tuning modes, which cater to your
individual preferences and needs. Needle mode is for those that are
used to the classic view on a tuner. For the people that want a little
more real-time information, we have included stream-mode, which measures
even the slightest pitch variation and instantly feeds the info back to
you via a rotating motion on the display.
to both these great chromatic modes is an ultra-fast and precise
response, which is achieved via the use of the unique tuner magnet
feature. This slows down the needle once you get close to the desired
pitch, making it much easier to get the job done quickly.
you want to use the polyphonic tuner to get in tune, or prefer to go
the chromatic route, this pedal has you covered. PolyTuneTM
features "MonoPoly", a jaw-dropping new technology that recognizes
whether you play one or more strings and instantly replies with the
appropriate poly- or monophonic tuning mode.
course, all of these amazing features would not mean a thing if they
were a pain to use or set up. So, we added some traits to ensure this
tuner is calibrated to the guitarist. Unlike most other tuners, PolyTuneTM
stores your preferences. From pitch reference to tuning mode, it hangs
on to this information even after it is powered down, making sure you
only have to set how you want things to happen once.
time you power up again, it will show you the settings, so you instantly
know Everything is exactly how you want it to be.
Tuning as it should be
was our chance to build the ultimate tuning tool from the ground up and
finally get rid of some of the current tuner drawbacks that guitarists
run into time and time again. Tuners have been around for some 30 odd
years and we felt it was high time they got in tune with todays
Design is where beauty and technology meet
besides all the spearheading features inside the tuner, we took a long
hard look at the outside as well, and pushed tuner design to new heights
in the process!
|A strong display of innovation|
Starting with the display, it instantly becomes clear why PolyTuneTM
is lightyears ahead of current tuners. Guitarists that play gigs, will
no doubt recognize the nightmare of an unclear display, due to for
example bright sunlight, an overeager light technician or a stage smoke
machine gone bonkers.
offers unprecedented visibility using an ambient light sensor, which
automatically matches the brightness of the LEDs to its surroundings.
What is the Matrix?
features 17 LEDS which allow for a higher resolution and the LEDs
themselves are super bright and focused to ensure optimal visibility at
all times. This guarantees the most effortless tuning experience money
can buy. And as an added bonus, the 100 LED matrix can give you
information right on the display, so you won't have to go dig for the
will brighten any pedalboard, and we aren't just talking about the
LEDs! Besides looking like a million bucks, its small footprint design
means that PolyTuneTM doesn't take up more of your precious pedalboard real estate than absolutely necessary.
Spruce the juice
Battery changes are a breeze thanks to the one-screw easy access to
the battery compartment and when powered by an external 9v DC power
supply, the 9v DC out can be used to power other pedals on your board.
The true bypass feature ensures PolyTuneTM
is only there when you need it. It allows for your carefully sculpted
tone to flow unaffected when the pedal is bypassed and for silent tuning
