The original PolyTune rocked the world. It forever changed the way we look at tuning. The world's first polyphonic tuner took the hearts of guitarists by storm. Was it the jaw-droppingly awesome polyphonic tuning that made tuning much faster, easier and intuitive? The bright LED matrix with auto-dimming that ensured maximum visibility? Tuning Magnet, the slowing of the needle as you approached the correct pitch? Maybe the MonoPoly technology that sensed whether you played one or six strings and instantly adjusted accordingly?
Like musicians who never really know how they wrote that number 1 hit, it was probably a combination of factors for us. Whatever it was, you loved it and we loved it! But at TC Electronic we're all about moving forward, so we've improved on perfection and added some guitarist gems that cement PolyTune 2 as the leader of the pedal tuning pack.
Polyphonic Perfection Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few years, you'll know this. With PolyTune, you simply strum all strings on your guitar or bass at once and it will immediately tell you which strings need tuning! It really is as simple as strum - tune - rock! This way, you spend minimum time tuning and maximum time doing what you love the most - playing.
And They Thought Einstein Was Bright! You ain't seen nothing yet! The display on PolyTune 2 is primed with some of the brightest LEDs you've ever laid your eyes on. Remember when some tuners were really good for daytime gigs, and others excelled in dark clubs? With PolyTune 2, you get an instant clear overview, no matter what the situation. And the ambient light sensor makes sure you get just the right amount of brightness. Every time. It's truly amazing how bright they get, so don't come complaining if planets want to orbit your pedalboard.
The Strobe Is Strong With This One The original PolyTune was best in class when it came to precision. Great - but why stop there? We've received many requests from the guitar community to add a strobe tuner - a decision we'd been debating internally as well. So let there be strobe! For fine-tuning your precious gear and giving it the care and attention it deserves, to super accurate tuning in the studio or by a roadie on stage. This strobe tuner is lightning fast and ultra precise. But how precise is it? Well, let's just say if you tune and then put your pick on the fret-board - you're going to see the difference (we're not even joking).
