Rugged Tru-Strobe pedal tuner introduced by Planet Waves
|At Summer NAMM show 2009 in Nashville, booth #1401, Planet Waves highlights the new Tru-Strobe Pedal Tuner. The new tuner offers true strobe accuracy (not a simulation) that will ensure precision tuning up to +/- .1% of a cent.
Featuring a heavy-duty, die-cast design and convenient pedal housing, the new tuner will prove ideal for studio use or on the road where accuracy competes with clutter, noise, and poor lighting. To that end, the readout is exceptionally bright with its large back-lit LCD display that can be seen on dark stages and equally well in full sunlight. The tuner also features a simple, user-friendly design to promote additional ease-of-tuning. Utilizing the Buzz Feiten Tuning System Offset for guitars to ensure tuning accuracy, it also employs six de-tuning modes for players using drop-tunings. The Planet Waves Tru-Strobe Pedal Tuner incorporates True Bypass wiring that will not affect the original instrument’s tone.
“The release of our Tru-Strobe Desktop tuner brought immediate requests from artists and fans that we should offer it in a pedal version,” says Planet Waves Product Design Specialist, Robert Cunningham. We chose to make other adaptations, as well, to meet the market needs, such as the backlit LCD which addresses the need for many players to see their stage tuner in daylight, and the addition of the Buzz Feiten programming, which is more popular than ever. We view this as our ultimate design achievement and based on testing feedback, players are going to flip when they try it!”
The Planet Waves True Strobe Pedal Tuner will be available mid-August 2009 in the US, global availability is announced for fall 2009.
