[NAMM] HardWire HT-6 Polyphonic Tuner
HardWire introduces the new HT-6 Polyphonic Tuner, a tuner for guitarists and bassists that can be used to tune all 6 strings of an instrument simultaneously.
Based on technology from 3dB Research, the HT-6 is designed to make tuning instruments faster and easier by strumming all strings and viewing the 'string' display readout as to which string is in or out of tune.
The HT-6 Polyphonic Tuner pedal interface is similar to chromatic tuning pedals, but features standard effects pedal, 6 rows of LED lights (one for each string) and an LED display matrix that represents the six strings of a guitar or bass. Two buttons on the HT-6 Tuner's top display panel are used for selecting display modes (Mode) and tuning references (Tuning).
The HT-6 also features individual guitar and bass LEDs to indicate whether guitar or bass display modes are being used. The Custom LED will light when Drop D tuning reference is selected. There is a cluster of LEDs below the matrix that is used to display the note as individual strings are tuned.
The HT-6 can also be used as a standard single string tuner. The HT-6 runs off of a 9VDC battery, or an optional external Harman PS200R DC power adapter. The HT-6 can also power up to six other 9VDC powered pedals on your pedal board when used with an optional DC power adapter and a power chain cable.
Pricing & Availability
The HardWire HT-6 Polyphonic Tuner is expected to ship in March 2011 with an estimated price of £99 RRP inc VAT (pricing may be subject to change).
