NAMM 2010: TC Electronic Announce the Polytune tuner pedal!
Described as the World’s first polyphonic tuner, the Polytune looks like a mix of Boss TU-2 in MXR-style shape, and is pretty cool...besides incredibly versatile!
TC Electronic has just revolutionised guitar tuning at a stroke – or strum – with the TC PolyTune, 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 – PolyTune will tell you which strings need tuning – tune up and you’re ready to rock!
PolyTune 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.
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. 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 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 100 LED display, all built to endure life on the road.
Quite simply, PolyTune is the greatest innovation in guitar tuners for over 30 years - and will look great and fit perfectly on any pedalboard, which's always a plus...
