Strum, Tune, Rock! with TC Electronic’s PolyTune pedal
NAMM: Anaheim, Calif. (MuseWire) – Forget the old days of string-by-string tuning – it’s time to join the PolyTune revolution. TC Electronic’s PolyTune is the quickest and easiest way to tune your guitar. Simply strum, tune and rock! TC Electronic has just revolutionized guitar tuning at a stroke or strum with PolyTune, the world’s first polyphonic guitar tuner. This cutting-edge tuning technology revolutionizes tuning and accomplishes what has been deemed impossible until now: tuning all strings simultaneously!
Simply strum and PolyTune will tell you which strings need tuning and tune up and you’re ready to rock! PolyTune obviously has a chromatic tuner as well, rivaling the best current tuning technology out there, with an amazing +/- 0.5 cent accuracy. MonoPoly, another unique new TC Electronic technology, recognizes whether you play one or more strings and seamlessly switches between the
polyphonic or the chromatic tuner on the fly.
PolyTune offers unprecedented visibility using an ambient light sensor, which automatically matches the intensity of the super bright LEDs to its surroundings. This ensures that the PolyTune display can be seen in any lighting conditions. So whatever the gig, whatever the light, whatever the situation, guitarists can now strum, tune and rock in an instant.
True Bypass makes sure that PolyTune preserves the integrity of your precious tone. It allows for the signal to flow unaffected when the pedal is bypassed and for silent tuning once engaged. The PolyTune pedal chassis features a diecast aluminum box, heavy duty footswitch and 100 LED display, all built to endure life on the road. Quite simply, PolyTune is the greatest innovation in guitar tuners for over 30 years. Tuning could not be easier or quicker.

I guess also it must be less embarrassing for less frequent guitar players – just strum all strings, and start tuning right away and see results of all strings –
as opposed to fiddling around with plucking each individual string and coordinating getting to tune the right knob.
With polytune this must be much easier –
to be able to tune with the speed of a really pro-player
(and we do not have to wait so long)
