TC Electronic PolyTune

TC Electronic PolyTunePublished on 02/21/11 at 15:00
This is the little white box from outer space that claims to revolutionize the way you tune your instrument.

Basically the Polytune by TC Electronics is different from your standard tuning pedal because it can read all 6 strings at once, instead of having to individually pluck each string to get a readout.

You can opt to set it to what is called Monopoly and tune your strings individually if that is easier.

I was excited to finally see these in stores. I have heard about them for awhile. I bought one and it was $100.

The accuracy is great. I feel it is accurate enough to use for a basic intonation setup of your instrument.

The accuracy is great. I feel it is accurate enough to use for a basic intonation setup of your instrument.

It is compact, actually smaller than a Boss sized pedal.

It is true bypass, so when it is off it will not suck any of your tone.

The display can be adjusted to however you can see it best i.e. you can make it brighter or darker.

It is new on the market so I am curious how long it will last. What happens if it breaks? Those sort of annoying questions that I have no answers to. Other than that, the pedal performs flawlessly.

Feels solid. It can definitely take a few good stomps. I haven't christened it with having a drunk kick a beer over on it yet, after that, if I can still read the LED display I will update this to praise the Polytune's glory.

A step in the right direction. Don't be afraid to take a chance on it. A cool, modern and accurate way to tune.

The PolyTune is T.C. Electronics' new tuning pedal. It is a quite innovative pedal as it is the first poly tonal tuning device. If you strum all open strings (in standard tuning,) it tells you which strings are in and out of tune. It also tunes individual strings chromatically. It is a simple on or off and true by bypass.

I got this product from the manufacturer for review.

There is a lot to talk about here. The polyphonic tuning mode works quite well. If you know your guitar is out of tune, one strum lets you know which string it is so you don't have to go through all six. Murphy's law makes sure that it is always the last one you check. It also recognized if a string is only sightly out of tune. The LED's tell you how far out it is as well. If you play one string at a time, it almost instantaneously switches into single string chromatic mode. The chromatic mode is very accurate and isn't overly finicky. There is a needle mode and spinning mode for the LED's. Players that play in drop tuning, are taken care of because you can adjust the pitch down that it recognizes as standard tuning.

The only negative I found was that the polyphonic mode displayed my low E string as being flat when it wasn't. It was something I quickly adjusted to because it was consistently wrong between several guitars both acoustic and electric. I'm sure TC will get this glitch fixed. Also, it only recognizes standard tuning in polyphonic mode. I think the next step for T.C. is to make the polyphonic mode programmable to custom tunings.

It seems to be built quite well. I didn't have it long enough to test longevity but I imagine it will hold up.

This is a great pedal and when they fix the little glitches, it will be even better. I think it is just as accurate as the BOSS pedal but the polyphonic mode makes it a better pedal. It costs the same as the TU-3 and in my opinion is a much better option.

Great Tuner if you arent using weird tunings

TC Electronic PolyTunePublished on 01/13/12 at 09:26
The TC Electronic Polytune is something you do not see every day in the world of tuners. It is something different. The Polytune brings a new level of usability to the act of tuning your guitar. With the Polytune you tell the tuner what tuning you are using. It does E standard all the way down to B standard. Once this is setup you can just strum all the open strings at once and it will tell you which string is out of tune. This is great for gigs when you know something is off you can quickly strum all the strings and it will tell you which one is off. Another great feature for gigging is the auto adjusting brightness level. If you are at a dark gig the pedal automatically makes itself...…

This is great for gigs when you know something is off you can quickly strum all the strings and it will tell you which one is off. Another great feature for gigging is the auto adjusting brightness level. If you are at a dark gig the pedal automatically makes itself brighter so you can easily read what it is saying. You can use a needle tuner or a strobe tuner if you want ultimate accuracy. It has a thing called Monopoly where it can detect if you are playing 1 string or more than 1 string. If you are playing a single string it goes into single string mode and if you are playing more than one string it shows the set of strings. The pedal is true bypass as well so it will not color your tone when it is in your line. You can power it by a battery or a 9v DC connection like most every other pedal and it is super small so it will not take up much room in your pedal board. If you are still using a simple old tuner in your rig you can do yourself a favor and upgrade to the TC Electronic Polytune. It is pretty much a game changer when it comes to tuners. It can do it all and has more features than you can shake a stick at.

Great Tuner

TC Electronic PolyTunePublished on 04/08/11 at 19:40
This is very simple to use. Just plug it in, strum all of the strings, check which ones are out of tune, tune 'em up, and continue playing what you were playing. It can do tuning all the way from E flat to B standard, and is accurate within +/- 0.5 cent, which is amazing. It can tune from 435 to 445 hertz, for those of you who like tuning to something other than concert pitch. It remembers what Tuning, tuning mode, and pitches you use the most, to make it even easier to tune up fast and to quickly check your tuning mid-set. It has a Strobe tuner to show you even the tiniest change in pitch, and a needle tuner for those of you who prefer the standard tuner's view. This is an essential...…

It has a Strobe tuner to show you even the tiniest change in pitch, and a needle tuner for those of you who prefer the standard tuner's view. This is an essential pedal for every pedalboard. A Tuner is, in my opinion, the most important part of anyone's board. Making sure you're in tune, whether playing live, recording, just jamming with friends, or practicing by yourself, is one of the most important things in guitar, and this makes it even easier to tune, and stay in tune. The ability to check all of your strings' tuning all at once makes things even faster and easier to tune. I think it's a great option on a tuner. All in all, this is one of the fastest, easiest to use, and most accurate tuners available. It's a must have for everyone's pedalboard in my opinion. In my opinion, it's one of the best tuners available, second only to the Turbo Tuner. Tuning with this is fast, simple, and easy, which is what you want in a tuner. This tuner is everything you'd want and more in a tuner. This is an awesome tuner for an awesome price.
