      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.

          Comments about TC Electronic Polytune 2 Pedal Tuner:

          I love all TC Electronic pedals and devices I have bought. They have all exceeded my expectations, including this awesome tuner. I was on the fence about this versus the smaller one. I think both would be just fine, just depends on if you need space or not. I personally like a bigger display for tuning, esp for doing intonation, but if that is not a big deal for you then get the smaller one.

          I don't use it but this pedal allows you to daisy chain additional power supplies which could be important for some folks. I don't know if the smaller one offers this (it wasn't a deciding factor for me).

          Switching tuning configuration is easy too - small buttons in back that you press when the device is on. The tuning style is also quickly changeable to guitar, bass, and style of tuning (simple line or more animated with a waveform-like design). I like the more animated style because it seems more detailed, but this is all personal preference. Playing live I might prefer the simpler display.

          One limitation/word of advice: a tech at guitar center (sorry musicians friend) gave me some great advice, as follows. the poly tune function is extremely helpful but not the most accurate way to tune your guitar. I use it to get a baseline. If a string is out of tune, then I play just that string by itself and tune it. the polytune feature does not seem to be super accurate - but is extremely helpful for quick spot-checking, playing live (I think those are its intentions?).

          Lastly, my other favorite thing about this is that it cuts the output signal when you tune, which allowed me to get rid of my a-b switch. may be obvious for those who do research, but I did not know this and was pleasantly surprised.

          Comments about TC Electronic Polytune 2 Pedal Tuner:

          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.

                Comments about TC Electronic Polytune 2 Pedal Tuner:

                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.
