The worst best tuner you can get

If you want the most accurate tuner you can get, this is it.
I play the sitar, and this is the only tuner on the market that can accurately tune a sitar.

If you want the most accurate tuner you can get, this is it.
I play the sitar, and this is the only tuner on the market that can accurately tune a sitar.

Unfortunately, the great technology is packaged with cheap, throwaway hardware and a poor interface, hence the 1 star rating.
Here's what I don't like about it:

- You have to pay Peterson 30 dlrs to switch on the metronome feature. Having paid over 200 dlrs (with shipping and taxes) for the most expensive tuner on the market, Peterson is extorting you for yet another 30 dlrs to unlock a feature that already exists on the device. This is an extremely cynical and anti-customer practice.
- Very cheap plastic, disposable build quality. For the cost, I would have expected titanium and glass. That would only have added another 10 dlrs to the cost, at most.
- The digital strobe indicator is vastly less accurate than an analogue needle would have been.
- Rechargeable battery via USB. Yet another thing in our lives to charge, and who knows for how long the battery will last? What if you show up at the gig, the battery is dead, you don't have a charger or computer, and you have to start playing in 5 minutes? You can't just pop in a pair of replaceable AAs.
- You can only configure the tuner's presets and options by tethering it to a computer with an internet connection. And the Peterson Connect software is not pretty.

But hopefully someone at Peterson will read this and improve the build quality of future products. Give me a slab of metal, an accurate analogue needle, replaceable AAs, no computer tethering and no extortionist metronome feature, and I'll be happy.

          Comments about Peterson StroboPlus HD:

          Use this to tune mandolins and fiddle. I have a 30 year old Peterson but its bulky, was hoping to lighten the load and thought the technology would be good. Either I got a lemon or its really disappointing, the spinners spin one way then the other on the same note, can rarely get them to stay still. Compared to tuning forks and Peterson 450 the StroboHD is always sharp. Its a real pain to deal with, instead of simplifying my tuning it made it more difficult. Definitely would not recommend. Needs improvements.

                  I am very pleased with my latest investment. I have used other tuners, including pedals, handheld, and rackmounts, that are just not this accurate. My guitars just plain sound better after using the StroboPlus HD vs other tuners. I do my own set-ups and guitar tech for a few bands.

                    Comments about Peterson StroboPlus HD:

                    This is an extremely accurate and versatile tuner. I use it as a work bench tuner for performing setups. The display is very easy to read. I haven't even scratched the surface of the tons of features - probably won't. However, if you want to do precision intonation setting, or want a tuner which is super fast and easy to read for changing strings, etc. on a bench, this is the tuner for you.

                    I have no idea what a "sweetener" is but this tuner has them (reading the vague description in the manual left me scratching my head). I tuned using the "guitar" sweetener and couldn't really tell much difference, but I'll look into it more.
