    TC Electronic PolyTune Poly-Chromatic Pedal Tuner Product Description

    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 PolyTune, the stomp-box sized tuning miracle from TC Electronic!

    PolyTune is the world's first polyphonic tuner, and a game-changing total tuning turnaround that will have future guitarists wondering how they ever got by without it.

    It couldn't be done - until TC did it.
    The magic lies in a never before seen approach to tuning aimed at speed, accuracy and ease of use. With PolyTune, 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, PolyTune 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.

    Fever Pitch
    Equally effective for guitar and bass, PolyTune 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 situation.

    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, PolyTune is a sure-fire way to be spot-on, with an accuracy of just plus/minus 1cent.

    Chromatic champion
    Besides the Polyphonic tuner, PolyTune has a chromatic tuner that can hang with the best current tuning technology out there, with an amazing 0.5 cent accuracy. But they are never satisfied with the current norm, and added some features to make this tuner's chromatic section stand out from the crowd.

    Tuning modes
    Let's 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, they 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.

    Tuning Magnet
    Key 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.

    MonoPoly
    Whether you want to use the polyphonic tuner to get in tune, or prefer to go the chromatic route,this pedal has you covered. PolyTune features "MonoPoly", a unique patent-pending technology that recognizes whether you play one or more strings and instantly replies with the appropriate poly- or monophonic tuning mode.

    Total Recall
    Of course, all of these amazing features would not mean a thing if they were a pain to use or set up. So, they added some traits to ensure this tuner is calibrated to the guitarist. Unlike most other tuners, PolyTune 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.

    The next 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
    PolyTune was their 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 guitarists.

    Design is where beauty and technology meet
    But besides all the spearheading features inside the tuner, they took a long hard look at the outside as well, and pushed tuner design to the next level in the process!

    A strong display of innovation
    Starting with the display, it instantly becomes clear why PolyTune 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.

    PolyTune offers unprecedented visibility using an ambient light sensor, which automatically matches the brightness of the LEDs to its surroundings.

    What is the Matrix?
    PolyTune 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 manual mid-gig.

    Size Matters
    PolyTune will brighten any pedalboard, and they aren't just talking about the LEDs! Besides looking like a million bucks, its small footprint design means that PolyTune 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.

    True Bypass
    The true bypass feature ensures PolyTune 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 once engaged.

    They can't make tuning fun. But they can sure make it a whole lot easier.
    They want to do the part for the guitar community and truly innovate the life of guitarists. And with PolyTune's extraordinary features and cutting-edge technology, they feel they have accomplished just that. They are passionate guitarists ourselves and they work every single day to make everyone's lives easier and more rocking. They did it for multi-effects with G-Force, G-Major2, Nova System and G-System, they did it for stomp boxes with the Nova series, and now PolyTune is here to give tuning a much needed kick in the A440!
