OVERVIEW

The evolution of a revolution in tuning from TC Electronic.

The original PolyTune rocked the world. It forever changed the way people look at tuning. The world’s first polyphonic tuner took the hearts of guitarists by storm. Was it the jaw-droppingly awesome polyphonic tuning that made tuning much faster, easier and intuitive? The bright LED matrix with auto-dimming that ensured maximum visibility? The slowing of the needle as you approached the correct pitch? Maybe the monopoly technology that sensed whether you played one or six strings and instantly adjusted accordingly?

It was probably a combination of factors. Whatever it was, you loved it. But TC Electronic is all about moving forward, so they’ve improved on perfection and added some guitarist gems that cement PolyTune 2 as a leader of the pedal tuning pack.

• PolyTune Technology – Tune all strings simultaneously
• Retina-scorching bright display
• Ultra-precise chromatic strobe tuner

Polyphonic Perfection
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, you know with PolyTune, you simply strum all strings on your guitar or bass at once, and it will immediately tell you which strings need tuning. It really is as simple as strum - tune – rock! This way, you spend minimum time tuning and maximum time doing what you love most: playing.

And They Thought Einstein Was Bright!
The display on PolyTune 2 is primed with some of the brightest LEDs. Remember when some tuners were really good for daytime gigs, and others excelled in dark clubs? With PolyTune 2, you get an instant clear overview, no matter the situation. And the ambient light sensor makes sure you get just the right amount of brightness. Every time.

The Strobe Is Strong With This One
The original PolyTune was best-in-class when it came to precision. Great – but why stop there? TC Electronic has gotten many requests from the guitar community to add a strobe tuner – a decision they’d been debating internally as well. So let there be strobe! For fine-tuning your precious gear and giving it the care and attention it deserves to super accurate tuning in the studio or by a roadie on stage. This strobe tuner is lightning fast and ultra precise. How precise is it? Well, let’s just say if you tune and then put your pick on the fretboard – you’re gonna see the difference.

PolyTune 2 – FineTuning Innovation
With PolyTune 2, TC Electronic wanted enhanced performance and maximum precision, without getting away from what made the original PolyTune such a hit. Have a look at their feature list, which combines the revolutionary with a strong display of innovation.

Full Strobe Ahead
The strobe tuner in PolyTune 2 is super accurate and super fast. Finetune your instruments with surgical precision at blinding speeds. Sounds good, right? We’re talking 0.1 cent tuning accuracy and in case you don’t really know what that means – there are atomic clocks who’d kill for that accuracy.

Tuning Magnet
The tuner magnet feature slows down the needle once you get close to the desired pitch, delivering a quick and easy tuning experience – any time, every time.

MonoPoly
MonoPoly instantly recognizes whether you play one or more strings and replies with the appropriate poly- or monophonic tuning mode.

Total Recall
PolyTune 2 stores your preferences. From pitch reference to tuning mode, it hangs on to this information even after it is powered down, making sure you only have to set how you want things to happen once.

Brighten Up Your Day
This feature will make you smile – basically, the new LEDs in PolyTune 2 are bright enough to be seen from space, but the ambient light sensor in PolyTune 2 ensures you always have the right brightness. The result? A clear and pleasant visibility, no matter what situation you’re in.

True Bypass
This allows for your carefully sculpted tone to flow unaffected when the pedal is bypassed and for silent tuning once engaged.

FEATURES
  • PolyTune(R) - Tune all strings simultaneously
  • New chromatic strobe tuner - 0.1 cent tuning accuracy
  • New bigger and brighter LED display with ambient light sensor
  • Drop-D and capo tuning modes
  • True-bypass with silent tuning
  • 9V DC output for powering other pedals

    Very quick for checking tuning in-between songs. I love the one-strum concept (polyphonic) versus having to check each string independently, one at a time (chromatic). Chromatic, strobe tuning is immediately available by just plucking one string, and is more accurate than the polyphonic tuning mode, as evidenced by the polyphonic tuning showing all strings in tune, but strings being tuned by the strobe mode showing to be slightly sharp or flat. This tuner has replaced a Peterson Strobostomp that I have used on my pedal board for years, which is a great, accurate tuner; however, the quicker and easier-to-read Poly Tune 2 has won out, hands down.

    I purchased the TC Electronic Polytune 2 Pedal Tuner because my 20 year old Korg tuner finally died, and the Polytune 2 seemed like a cool idea, and had good reviews online. Unfortunately, the unit was either a lemon when I got it, or immediately broke after 1 use. It came New with a dead battery, I swapped out the battery, I used it once to tune up my 4 guitars, came back a week later to use the Polytune 2 again, and all that it would do was make a clicking noise, and show a small "d" on the screen. So, I replaced the battery a third time, tried 2 different cables, tried a couple different guitars, but only got the same small "d" on the screen, and the strange clicking noise from the Polytune 2 pedal. I emailed TC Electronic, and they responded fast telling me that the small "d" means that the pedal thinks that it is not receiving any signal from the guitar cable, but trying a different cable did not make the pedal work. So, I called Musician's Friend, and exchanged the pedal for another New one. I am trying out the replacement Polytune 2 pedal that Musician's Friend sent me, but I don't trust it yet. TC Electronic's customer service responded fast, and Musician's Friend's customer service responded fast, and actually surprised me by sending the exchange unit out before I had time to get to UPS to return the defective pedal. So, I still like the idea of being able to tune all strings at the same time, but it will take me awhile to trust this pedal, which means, I cannot in good conscience recommend it to anyone yet.

              Wow, this tuner is awesome. Fast tuning, different modes for guitar including drop D and flat tuning. Has a poly mode where with a quick strum you can see all strings and which are sharp or flat. Also is chromatic so it can be used with other instruments. I use it with amplified fiddle.

                Takes up little space and can be seen from space!
                There are a few polyphonic tuners on the market now but T.C.Electronics did it first and I think still does it best. Easy to use and so bright and adaptive.
                Everyone should have one on their pedal board.
                No reason to ever be out of tune again.

                  Comments about TC Electronic Polytune 2 Pedal Tuner:

                  I bought this tuner after I saw another guitarists pedal board with this tuner on it.
                  The fact you can tune all the strings at one time seemed awesome. I had to have one.

                  Got mine worked great. 4 months later I was having trouble with my rig(about 4 effects pedals + tuner). Turned out to be the "in" jack on my polytune tuner. It was an intermittent problem - I would not get any sound out of my amp and found that if I jiggled the cable going into the tuner I would get a sound through to my amp.

                  I had a good experience dealing with TC Electronics. I paid to ship it to them , it was under warranty. They sent me a new one. So I am happy with it. Things happen I understand.

                  One thing to mention if you plug a "stereo" cable into this tuner it will play through but the tuning function will not work. I was using a sound-recording guys cables and couldn't figure out why the tuner did not come on as I was playing through it. Any ways I know now.

                  Another thing its kind of hard to see the all strings at once tuning function display when standing. Kind of small although I am almost 50 years old - that could have something to do with it.
                  Happy with this tuner !!

                  Comments about TC Electronic Polytune 2 Pedal Tuner:

                  Out of all the tuner pedals out there, this little guy packs a punch. I was torn between the Boss TU-3, but the fact that it is simple and straight forward, three different display settings (poly, needle, & strobe), quick drop D running select, and true by pass it was hard to look away. I did a lot of research on this pedal and every musician is pleased with its performance.

                  There is a slight difference in accuracy between needle and strobe, but TC address this on their website and states that the strobe will be the most accurate with .1 cent of the selected pitch. The first time I used the pedal in poly it seemed to be broken, but it was user error. After sitting down with my guitar and resetting my intonation the problem was gone. What problem you say? The low E, high B, and high E was not showing up. This was due to the string being off and the algorithm was not able to detect the pitch. Once the intonation was fixed through strobe/needle display I was able to switch to my poly and all was well. I play in and out door frequently and the auto-dimming feature was very impressive. Anyone who plays live knows the need a quick response tuner that is easy to see and reliable. I couldn't have spent my money anywhere better than with TC Electronics and look forward to using it live this weekend!
                  Bottom line-get and you won't be disappointed!

                    I pretty much tossed a coin between this and a BOSS. This is quite a bit smaller than the BOSS box size but I like the huge display. Being able to whack up a chord and see the status of each string is very convinient. Makes touch up tuning fast. Works exactly as advertised.
