OVERVIEW

A versatile way to stay in tune.

Roadie Tuner's Automatic Guitar Tuner helps you tune your guitar quickly and accurately, switch tuning in seconds, or create your own custom tuning. It's that simple and effective.

Speed

It takes Roadie a few seconds to fine-tune your guitar or completely change tuning. The accompanying mobile app comes preset with 8 alternate and open tunings. It also gives you the ability create your own custom tunings.

Detection range: A1 (55Hz) - A5 (880Hz). Detection accuracy: Less than +/-1 cent. Tuning accuracy: Up to ±2 cents. The reference A 440 Hz setting is customizable in 0.1 Hz increments from 420 Hz to 460 Hz.

Customization
Roadie lets you customize any of your strings/tunings in 1 cent increments. If you like to tune a string slightly sharp or flat or if you have a piece you like to play in a different temperament, simply adjust that tuning in the app and tune back to it perfectly anytime.

Winder

You can restring quickly using the automatic winding feature of Roadie. The motor rotates faster than 70 RPM.

Convenience
Roadie fits in your pocket or guitar case/bag.

Versatility

I am absolutely happy with it! The tuning quality is great, alternate tunings are all correct and easy to use, it even works on my 7 strings Ibanez. Setting up whole-step-down tuning was insanely easy, starting from Standard, setup a custom tuning and take each note one step down. The steps were clear and easy to follow, and I didn't run into any issues or errors. I HIGHLY recommend this product. I've been raving about it to all my guitarist friends!! Not to mention, you can download the app and check it out before you even buy it so you can see how it works. Love it!! Very happy I finally bought this.

Took a while to do calibration. Also kept changing the string tuning until it popped a string. Uses your smart phone so you can run down your phone battery. I found the one I had kept hunting for string tuning & more stuff to carry on the road. I also deemed any one of the stand alone tuning devices (pedal or clip on) to be just as or more accurate, simpler & easier to use. My opinion, save your money, or get a more traditional turner!

      Comments about Roadie Tuner Automatic Guitar Tuner:

      This product is great! Broke two string with it though in the beginning. HOWEVER, that is not a reason to give it a low-star rating like another reviewer did. All you have to do is decrease the sensitivity from "quiet" environment to "noisy" environment to make sure it doesn't pick up any extra noise. I broke the strings from talking loud like a doofus. Other than that, this product is extremely efficient and useful.

              The first Roadie Tuner received didn't work at all; returned it and Musicians Friend sent a replacement which works just fine. Impressive use of technology applied to an artistic endeavor. I'm just getting used to it, but I can envision its convenience once I become more adept using its features.
              NOTE, it does require a blue tooth connection to a smart phone otherwise its just a motor powered manual tuner.

                Bought Roadie to help get into other tunings that I have not played in much, ended up using it when tuning to standard most of the because it is just done and I am back to playing. Roadie gives great results and I have to admit I kind of look forward to tuning my instrument now

                I play a 12 string, 8 string and 6 string acoustic. I have created a profile for each and all of my instruments, and once I went through calibration tuning was super easy.
                It takes seconds to tune my 6 strings. Now I am able to switch between alternate tunings very easily. I even created a Taylor tuning and my guitar sounds great!
