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
  • 3M Velcro for pedal board attachment
  • DC adapter sold separately

Great tuner for a gigging musician!

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.

The faceplate is a glorified sticker with a low-grade adhesive. The body is solid, and the switch takes stepping on, but in time the glue loses adhesion, then the faceplate will flake off and expose the raw circuit board and LED's.
Interface could be far more intuitive. I'd rather learn the instrument, instead of learning a tuner.

    Comments about TC Electronic Polytune 2 Pedal Tuner:

    I honestly never expected to replace my Boss TU-3 with anything but the next version of the same; after years of touring, over which time I've encountered hundreds of other musicians, I understood that Boss pedal to simply be the industry standard... If you were actually serious about your playing, it was the first (or only) thing on your board... Then recently I started noticing something different popping up on pedalboards: the TC electronic polytune. For months, I ignored it, assuming nothing could be preferable/superior to my Boss, but then, on a friend's insistence, I tried his Polytune, and my world shook a little. TEN TIMES MORE ACCURATE THAN THE BOSS TU-3?!?!? Yes, it in fact is. Check the specs. Plus, you can check the tuning of EVERY STRING AT THE SAME TIME... I was converted immediately, and as more time passes, the more I see the Polytune on professional boards, right where the old TU-3 used to be. Industries change, and this is simply the new industry standard. Enjoy!
