  • 1Description

The PolyTune 2 Polyphonic Tuner from TC Electronic allows you to tune all your strings simultaneously by strumming all the strings on your guitar. Once you have strummed your guitar, the PolyTune 2 will display which of your strings is out of tune. In addition to recognizing standard tuning in polyphonic mode, the PolyTune 2 also has dropped-D and capo tuning modes to accommodate most tunings. You can also use it to tune one string at a time with its chromatic strobe mode.

The tuner features an LED display with a built-in light sensor that automatically adjusts the brightness level based on your surroundings. It has true bypass when not in use and supports silent tuning once engaged. The PolyTune 2 also features a DC output for powering other pedals on your pedalboard.

Polyphonic Tuning
With PolyTune, you simply strum all strings on your guitar or bass at once and it will immediately tell you which strings need tuning
Bright LEDs
The display on PolyTune 2 is primed with bright LEDs. With PolyTune 2, you get an instant clear overview, no matter what the situation. And the ambient light sensor makes sure you get just the right amount of brightness
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
Strobe Tuning Mode
The strobe tuner in PolyTune 2 is designed to be accurate and fast. Fine tune your instruments with +/- 0.1 cent tuning accuracy
Polyphonic Chromatic Tuning Mode
Besides the Polyphonic tuner, PolyTune has a chromatic tuner with 0.5 cent accuracy. It instantly recognizes whether you play one or more strings and replies with the appropriate polyphonic or monophonic tuning mode
Stored Preferences
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

    PolyTune 2 Polyphonic Tuner is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extremely accurate strobe mode Although the main marketing pitch of the PolyTune 2 is the ability to do polyphonic tuning, I don't even use the polyphonic mode. Polyphonic tuning is nice, but the accuracy isn't entirely up to par. It might say you're perfectly in tune but when you disengage and start playing, it turns out that a few strings are off by a little bit. The strobe mode, on the other hand, is insanely accurate. I have had pretty extensive frequency recognition training and I can say that the PolyTune 2's strobe tuner is the only stompbox-sized tuner that really nails the tuning of each string dead-on. I have one complaint: the pedal seems to always be in silent tuning mode. I haven't found a way to disable this and use the pedal in always-on mode, which would allow you to check your tuning while playing. It's a minor gripe, but I think it would have been a nice option to have. I tend to use my ears to double-check what a tuner is telling me, and with a tuner that always mutes your signal when it is engaged, this isn't possible.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets the job done This is my second polytune tuner. I needed a second to keep on hand at my home studio. This tuner is fast and accurate, and because it's true bypass, I have not noticed any change in tone to my sound. ( I also keep my cable lengths as short as possible). The display is brighter than the original polytune.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tuner! This tuner is everything it claims to be. Easy to change modes, a pedal that you don't need to stomp on, and BRIGHT!!! The poly tuning mode works like a charm, even on a 5 string bass. I would definitely recommend this product.
