Provides accuracy and excellent functionality when you need it most.
The Peterson 590 AutoStrobe Tuner responds at light speed to display relative tuning of any source to 0.1 cent accuracy with automatic handsfree note selection. Peterson Tuner features automatic image clarity and contrast control for optimal viewing. The +2/-1 display shifts strobe patterns into more visible middle ranges-bass note patterns can be displayed 3 octaves higher and treble notes can be displayed one octave lower. Strobe patterns appear at correct note for Bb, F, and Eb instruments. A new external input and through output with mute enable onstage silent tuning with your 590 AutoStrobe Tuner.
In addition to the visual strobe indication, the Autostrobe 590 can function as an audio tuner by means of an Audio Out section, which combines input sound with reference-pitch tones into headphones or an internal speaker.
As with all of Peterson's AutoStrobe models, the Model 590 allows students, technicians, and musicians at all levels to utilize automatic (handsfree) note selection for fast, accurate tuning of instruments. This feature also permits realtime display of intonation and, combined with the Audio Out function, provides a great way to improve performance and listening skills while playing.
Sure, it costs more, but it does more and does it with far greater accuracy. Put it in the cart!

Comments about Peterson 590 AutoStrobe Tuner:
I bought my Peterson 590 AutoStrobe awhile back to update my piano tuning business to a more mordern (now digital) strobe with some of the newer bells & whistles that are available now-a-days.I have a Conn Strobotuner ST-6 tube type '60's model,And the Conn Strobotuner ST-11 solid state '70's models. So my compairisons are based on 45 years of piano experiance. The Conn ST-11 improved over the previous ST-6&8 tube type of course ,with no warm up time & lighter weight ,but,same basic controls .This new Peterson 590 AutoStrobe Has all of those older controls but , in easier acsess (once you get used to where they are) . The manuel is pretty easy to understand and apply . I expected more presets (tempers and possibly the strech tunings pre-programed) in this "Model 590" but you are limited to the 8 basic temperments.A couple are usefull for the guitar but,really useless for modern piano tuning.The Auto feature will not be useful at all tuning pianos but,the digital cent adjustment IS more accurate than older model Strobes .Not to cut this unit short,I like the push button features & lay-out of the manuel note selection and, the audible tones have been a help at times.All in all, I like the Peterson 590 AutoStrobe for updating to a newer peice of equip.,the digital features are nice ,even though I'm an old analog guy , it does make my job easier and the digitaly controled strobe "IS" easier to read.
