      Comments about Peterson StroboPlus HD:

      You think you used real tuners before?
      Wait to be proved wrong.
      This lil tonophilic masterpiece leaves all other tuners in in the bin where off-tune notes belong.
      And I've used Boss, Korg, pedal units before.
      The sensitivity leaves you shocked.
      Want to test your tuner? Just try tuning your low E on your guitar with it.
      And this kid here latches onto that note with the jaws of a bulldog.
      And of course, there are the presets.
      And the ability to tune over 20 instruments...and that's my conservative estimate.
      Costs you half a ear, but nothing else levels up with this!

            May take some getting use to if you are not familiar with strobe tuners but worth the time to learn. Great for Pedal Steel, the manual does not provide much information about the preset tunings only that the are there. However a quick call to Peterson they will email you a detailed booklet. If you plan to order any accessories from Peterson wait until you have your unit in hand, At the time of registration Peterson provides a discount on its accessories

            Comments about Peterson StroboPlus HD:

            Everyone who plays an instrument where pitch depends on technique, or where tone decays rapidly should have this tuner.

            Purchased for watching my intonation while practicing viola, but excellent for all other uses.

            This has the lightening fast response advertised. Needle readout tuners confuse low volume with flat pitch and respond too slowly to monitor intonation while playing normally. The cheaper clip-on version would probably work as well, but extra weight on the head is the last thing you want on a viola.

            The readout is large enough to be seen at a distance, and self-illuminated so ambient light is not an issue. Some of the letter names are in a font that is confusing, which seems to be a flaw in most tuners -- too creative by half.

            The strobe readout does not give an objective measure of how far off you are, but it is quite good enough for monitoring your intonation while playing. This slight disadvantage is trivial compared to the prompt response. For critical intonation setup of instruments, you can get a digital readout of your deviation in cents, though it is a bit more cumbersome than the vernier dial on a Regular Peterson Strobe tuner.

            Be aware you must have a computer or buy the charger to use this device. It would have been nice if the charger were included, not just the USB cable.

            In general I dislike any toggle function, and this unit has several, including on/off. Unless there is a sound source, there is no way to know if the unit is on. But the automatic shutoff and rechargeable battery prevent this from being a severe problem.

                The Stroboplus HD is a very nice and precise tuner. I have owned several other Peterson tuners; and it seems like they put all my favorite things from the others,into this one tuner.The screen is huge; and I can see it in the dark on stage.It has internet capabilities; of which I haven't explored yet.I highly recommend this tuner for anyone that wants to tune up with accuracy.Doesn't it drive you nuts; when you are at a place with 20 musicians, and they all have their "version" of being in tune - and it still sounds like fingernails on a chaulkboard?

                    I got this unit after my previous guitar tuner (not a Peterson) bit the pillow. I find it to be VERY easy to work with! The instructions provided with the StroboPlus are not confusing--just long-winded and boring. Once you figure out how to use one of its capabilities, everything else just falls into place.

                    What's really ultra-awesome about this is the accuracy. Seriously, it's amazing for me to hear what my guitars sound like now that they're as close to being perfectly in tune as can be gotten. I HIGHLY recommend this tuner!!
