OVERVIEW

Tune with confidence.

The DigiTech HardWire Series HT-2 is a chromatic tuner pedal that is visible, accurate, and durable when in use; transparent when not. The cornerstone of every pedal board is a reliable tuner. The HardWire Chromatic Tuner's true bypass means that when it is off, it's out of the circuit. With the DigiTech Ht-2 tuner you can tune with confidence, using tone with integrity.

The DigiTech HardWire pedal series represents DigiTech's commitment to quality and attention to subtle details. In addition to technical enhancements like true bypass and high voltage operation, all HardWire pedals feature rugged, all-metal construction; a wide, stage-stable footprin; durable, custom-machined metal knobs for a sure grip; and precision potentiometers that guarantee knob positions will stay intact.

The rugged, durable construction of Extreme Performance Pedals is just the beginning. Inside each DigiTech HardWire pedal are technological features that serious players require—all updated and improved to their utmost capacity. True bypass preserves the purity of your original tone as signal passes through the pedal, and high voltage operation further protects your sound by eliminating clipping and other signal degradation caused by power drain.

With the high-output pickups found on some electric guitars, it's not unusual to hear clipping when playing through an effects pedal. This occurs when the voltage range produced by a guitar's pickup is greater than the operating voltage of the effects pedal—normally limited to the voltage supplied by the effect's battery or power supply. HardWire pedals incorporate circuitry that increases the operating voltage headroom above that of the typical pedal. As such, HardWire pedals benefit a wider range of guitars and are also at home in an amplifier's effects loop.

FEATURES
  • True Hardwire bypass
  • LED note display + 11 LED tuner array
  • Normal and strobe tuning modes
  • 9VDC battery operation
  • Mute and thru outputs
  • Multiple tuning references
  • Optional PS200R adapter compatible

This is the best tuner pedal I've found. I was deciding between The Korg Pitchblack and BOSS Tu-2 when I found the Hardwire HT-2. It combines the best features of the BOSS and KORG.Korg is true bypass and +/-0.1 cent accuracy but has four display modes instead of tuning modes. i.e. flat tuning.Boss has the flat tuning modes but is +/-0.3 cents accurate and is not true bypass.Hardwire is True Bypass, +/-0.1 cent accurate and has flat tuning modes. Best of both.It has a super bright display. Bright blue LED when engaged and when in-tune. It's built like a tank. If your thinking about the KORG or BOSS, check this out. Great tuner and comes with some great details like a velcro pad for your pedalboard. Great buy.

I bought this pedal with high expectations. The first time I tried to use it at a gig, it wouldn't work. The lower notes wouldn't register and it just kept tetering back and forth. I had to borrow a tuner from someone else, so we could play the gig. I took it back and the guy at the store got it to work, so I tried again and it crapped out on me again. I regret buying this piece-of-junk.

      what's not to like quiet, easy to see, accurate, rugged, like the strobe mode as you know how close your getting to pitch early on which allows you to get "on" faster. Checked it with my home Peterson and it's dead on.

      Good tuner with a few quirks

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about DigiTech HardWire Series HT-2 Chromatic Tuner:

      I own all the Hardwire pedals. Great build quality, attractive looks and 9 volt power demands make these pedals a popular choice and the tuner is no exception. This guy doesn't track quite as well as the Boss but it does out shine the Korg Pitch Black (I've got both). A hot signal (hot humbuckers or a boost before the tuner) will freak this pedal out. (Click off the boost and/or roll back your volume knob and all is well.) If I had to pick one tuner I'd probably go for the Boss first, but the Hardwire is a close second. Worth a look, particularly if you can get one on sale for under a C-note.

      Great Tuner, but buy a power supply

      By BassFace

      from Kitchener, Ontario

      Comments about DigiTech HardWire Series HT-2 Chromatic Tuner:

      Excellent tuner. Works well with guitar and bass, but sucks up a 9volt battery in a gig.Save yourself bucks and aggravation and get the power supply with it.

      Comments about DigiTech HardWire Series HT-2 Chromatic Tuner:

      To me, a good tuner should be the one pedal you never have to play with or think about; it shouldn't alter your tone, it should be be accurate and it should be easy to read. This pedal accomplishes all these things. It's also built like a tank and probably the last tuner I'll ever have to buy.

      Not too shabby for bass

      By samikaze

      from Austin TX

      See all my reviews

      Comments about DigiTech HardWire Series HT-2 Chromatic Tuner:

      I bought this when it was first released and still use it today. Back then, I also had just switched to bass after primarily being a guitarist for over 15 years. I use 5 string active basses in my current band, either E standard (lowest string is B) or with C# standard (low is G#). It seems to work harder with the two lower bass strings on both tunings, but playing a harmonics on the 12th fret is a lot more responsive. I believe it would work better with guitars, even a 7 string. It definitely seems to eat batteries even when "bypassed" but works great with a OneSpot adapter. I like the two output options, but use the "Mute" output to silence in between songs. I think it's better than Boss's TU3 (one of my guitarists has one), but that right there is just my opinion. You're better off with a Korg rackmount tuner for bass if you don't mind going rack.

      Comments about DigiTech HardWire Series HT-2 Chromatic Tuner:

      I've owned this piece for about 18 months. I use it professionally on my live show pedal-board. It's fast,accurate, easy to read, solid and dependable! Yes it is TRUE bypass. This is accomplished by using a mini-reed switch. The unit adds no noise or any unwanted characteristics whatsoever to my signal chain. PERFECT score. The best tuner I've ever used.

          Much better/faster at finding the note than my previous ibanez model. Looks like they dropped the price due to releasing a "polytune" model that I care nothing about. This is a steal at the reduced price.

                  I bought mine about 6 months ago after shopping several others and for the money there isn't one better. I know of at least two others who bought one as a direct result of having seen and used mine. All of the Hardwire pedals represent extreme bargains and the HT-2 is so exception. It's well worth the price.

                        I bought this around the first of the year (2009) and have used it a fair bit since then. it seem to be a very accurate and reliable tuner with a nice bypass feature. my only neagtive about this is the blue on light. the thing is so bright its hard for me to stare at the display to see my tunning. other than that i find it as a great product and recomend it to all.

                        I bought this because I needed a stomp tuner for between songs at gigs. I looked at the Fender and couldn't find the Boss (they were changing from TU-2 to TU-3 and neither product was in stock anywhere), but in the end decided to get this one because of its build and how accurate it is. So far, it has not let me down (knock on wood). Cons:If you leave the guitar plugged into it overnight in battery mode, go ahead and kiss that battery good-bye.It cannot easily pick up a bass guitar note low C (but I don't know any that can).

                        Just received my HT-2 and have put it through its paces. My initial impression of it is EXCELLENT. Seems to be built solidly indeed. As others have said, it is build like a tank. Much larger than my Boss DS-2 and certainly heavier than most pedals. That said, I think that the greater size and added weight are benefits and not negatives. Very easy to use. Love the strobe feature. Was considering this or the Korg Pitchblack and opted for the Digitech Hardwire HT-2 instead. I'm (so far) exceedingly happy with my choice.
