OVERVIEW

Accurate tuning with a screen you can see virtually anywhere!

The Peterson Stomp Classic Strobotuner is a pedal tuner that combines the timeless 'mojo' of the legendary Conn ST-11 Strobotuner with the most desired features in a pedal tuner to date!

Peterson didn't stop there as they also added many exclusive features into the Stomp Classic, such as Peterson's pioneering true-bypass circuitry, a host of new Sweetened Tunings that include support for 7-string guitars, electric violin, and mandolin-family instruments, along with their renowned built-in, fully adjustable, active DI.

Unparalleled note detection and a high-definition, realtime strobe display resolution of 0.1 cent combined with a host of presets allowing for each instrument's individual idiosyncrasies (including string deflection, interval spacing, harmonic nature and range) place the Stomp Classic in the top of its class.

An extremely bright, high-contrast LCD display makes the Stomp Classic an excellent choice for use outdoors or wherever lighting conditions are less than optimal. Integrated pedal board mounting lugs keep the Stomp Classic in place on the road and while in use.

The Stomp Classic is built to last and capable of taking the most grueling punishment while protecting your cables with the included cable guard. We have designed this to be the most roadworthy tuner you can place on your pedal board.

The Stomp Classic's look pays homage to the most iconic tuner of the 1970s, the ST-11 Strobotuner - still used then and now on the stages of some of the most exalted of rock gods!

FEATURES
  • 100% true-bypass tuning
  • Guaranteed 0.1 cent note detection and display resolution over the entire tuning range
  • Large, high-contrast display is easily visible in direct sunlight
  • Ultracool, classic '70s Conn Strobotuner design
  • Sweetened Tuning presets for many instruments
  • Buzz Feiten Tuning System support
  • Fully programmable via USB from PC or Mac with quick access favorites
  • Drop tuning/capo tuning auto-transposition
  • Onboard professional active DI (mutable) with user-selectable 3-stage attenuation
  • Heavy-duty die-cast chassis with 3PDT stomp switch
  • Switchcraft input/output jacks
  • Quick-release battery access
  • Integrated pedal board-mounting lugs

Precise tuning in any light, plus plenty of throwback vibe! Order now.

I've had 'em all...Peterson SAM, Strobostomp Classic and II (also great except for direct sunlight), Boss, TC Electronc Polytune (great concept but needs work), and TurboTuner...this one beats them all. Tough, super accurate, and locks in REALLY quickly. Many other tuners have trouble "making up their mind" if you are in tune or not, which wastes alot of time in between tunes...this one is the fastest and most accurate by far. Anybody wanna buy a couple TC Polytunes??
Read the specs
As said, the best by far and I've had 'em all...
Pricey but worth it, all three of my boards are getting them.

So I have used them all:Boss, Korg, TurboTuner (TT), Snark, etc. I have used a TurboTuner stomp for the past 8 yrs, but decided to try the Peterson. Well, it does work, but the display is way to laggy and its hard to tell when you are way off tune vs. just a tad...this is very unlike my TT which spins faster the more off you are and is very easy to read, fast to react and small...the Strobo is a beast. But I gave it a fair trial, over 6 months on my board. I am a semi-pro & gig 1-2 times a month. Very serious about my music. Well, just could not deal with the slow response and the lack of the rotation of the screen display to be proportional to the degree of error. So, today I took it off my board, put my old TT back on. And believe me I was greatly relieved and pleased. I know lots of folks like the strobostomp, but I just do not like it that much. My overwhelming response to the strobo was irritation. Fine for setup, but that is not what i bought it for. Need a real accurate quick responding easy to read gig tuner. The strobo is not it for me. And way expensive too!

    Comments about Peterson VSS-C Stomp Classic Strobotuner Pedal Tuner:

    Was recommended to me by Adam Rafferty.... one of my guitar 'heroes'. I used the Peterson 'Sweetened' Tuning s on my acoustics and believe it really did sound better than when tuned with my 'el cheapo' tuner. It's a bit pricey... but it you are a serious guitar player or professional.... it's a must have... IMO.

        No need to guild the lily on this one, buy it! The sweetened guitar tuning produces the most beautiful chords I've ever heard. Yes it's expensive, but who cares?

        Comments about Peterson VSS-C Stomp Classic Strobotuner Pedal Tuner:

        OMG !! Fantastic tool. Precision tune. If you're cursed or blessed with hearing that can pick up subtle sharps and flats in any chord, then you are going to love this tuner. Tuner is SO precision that the intonation on my 6 string electrics that was correct with a cheaper tuner (to remain unnamed) was sharp with this Peterson; and now all the guitar's chord harmonies sound like heaven.

        Really excellent product. Not difficult to use. Great. Great. Great.

            This is absolutely must have gear. No other tuner will do after trying a Peterson Tuner. You will never realize how far from being in tune you were until you tune with a Peterson. Worth a little extra over the cost of other tuners. Get it.

              This is my second tuner and is the first in line to show my actual note that I'm playing as in another (switched) section of my pedal board system I have a Digitech Whammy DT pedal which then is monitored for final output by a Boss tuner. The Peterson unit is easy to use and built to last.

              I was so sick of my Boss Tu-3 tuner. Never giving me enough fine tuning. This one, THIS ONE, gives me the best tuning in the WORLD. It stays on, lets the strings play and decay, and it is so correct, so accurate, that I can't live without it. When you tune to this tuner all of your chords are correct. You still have to adjust for attack versus decay, but this one gives you the finest of fine tuning. It stays on while your notes decay into silence. It stays with you and never goes off. I've never tuned so true. Worth every penny.
