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 pedalboard 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 pedalboard.

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 pedalboard-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.

    Exactly 62 days after purchasing this product it would not power up. I called Peterson and they sent me a prepaid UPS sticker. I sent it back and they returned it with a repaired C100 power module. Now it powered up but the input no longer worked!! I called again and they sent me a "new" (read reconditioned) unit and asked me to return my old one. The new unit lasted a week and the screen started to go nuts like it needed a new battery so I put one in and two days later the screen is no longer functioning. I applaud Peterson for their excellent customer service but I can't recommend this product.

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

          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.

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

              I know it costs more than just about any other tuner you see but if you play guitar you need to get one of these. I felt like I was playing a guitar in tune for the first time in my life after using it the first time. (And I've been playing for more years than I'd like to admit.)

              As others have said built like a tank etc. etc. but the bottom line is it's more accurate than any other tuner I've ever used and makes a guitar sing. Pricey? Yes, compared to other tuners, but worth every penny. Run, don't walk and go get one of these.

                  Has a usb port to update the software if you care to. If something happened to mine I would get the exact same one. I trust it. When I mute the output and tune up I know when I hit that cord it will be right on the money every time. It has a bunch of other features that havent used but thats just me.

                      I have used many other tuners in the past and all have failed. This should be the last tuner I ever buy. I love the accuracy and easy readout. It seems sturdy enough to last a long time, even under the harsh circumstances it will endure at my live performances.
                      I was tired of the rest and wanted the best so I reckon it is money well spent to avoid stress at gig time.

                      By G.G. Moseley

                      from Midwest USA

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

                      There is nothing about this tuner that I find inadaquate, its by far the best thing out there on the market today, IMHO. Peterson has gone the extra mile in its construction and in its features. I don't believe you will be dissatisfied.
                      I've used every tuner known to man, PLUS I have a Peterson Flip-Top strobe tuner but this one beats them all. Super accurate, made like a Sherman tank, really "holds" the note a long time - - that's been a pet peeve of mine in the past - - I couldn't find a tuner that would hold the notes long enough to tell if they are really in tune. (now the Peterson Flip-Top will do this also but I don't guess they make this anymore (?) ) Plus, the Flip-Top is not as sturdy as this "Stomp Clasic". I even tried the Peterson "Clip-On" model but its really flimsy and wouldn't hold a long note. This Stomp Classic is NOT cheap but as the old saying goes, a lot of the time "you get what you pay for"! Everything worked on mine, right out of the box. I highly recommend this tuner - - its a hefty unit and will take a lot of hard use, whether in the living room or out on the road! I've done a lot of both in about 50 years of playing guitar.
                      Its put together for rugged use! Plus, it doesn't move around on the floor, whether its in a pedalboard arrangement or used independently....it stays put!
                      Well, the only reason I give it a 9 instead of a 10 is that it AIN'T CHEAP but its probably worth the money, it will probably be the last tuner you will ever have to buy.

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

                      I love this tuner. I had a planet wave true strobe tuner before, but it was difficult to tune with it.

                      So far I used this peterson tuner for intonating 10 electric guitars. It was very easy to do with this tuner. I also use this tuner for playing my guitars. What a great tuner, it has a guitar sweetner that is great. I feel like I can play much better now, cause it sounds so good.
                      Has more features than I know what to do with. But It has what I need for guitar.
                      Bought this a week ago. So far...the quality looks good.
                      A little expensive. I guess we get what we pay for.
