You can choose any tuning, including Open C or D, Drop D, or even a custom tuning.
The built-in electronics and the Doctor included in the app will help you keep an maintenance historic of your instrument and it can even alert you when strings need to be changed.
Roadie is powered by a LiPo battery that can be recharged via micro-USB. The head is compatible with any type of tuners that equip electric and acoustic guitars.
The crowdfunding project on KickStarter is opened until January 4th, 2014 and Roadie should be available in June 2014. Its final price will be $99 but you can become an early-owner starting from $69 at www.kickstarter.com.
