TC Electronic PolyTune: Six in One

TC Electronic PolyTune Review

When it comes to guitar tuner pedals innovations don't come by everyday, so when TC Electronic announced the PolyTune, a pedal that allows you view all at once which strings are out of tune,we got curious... Read more…

    not bad

    I use it for 2 months. Before I used tuners integrated with various multi-effects I've owned (Boss GT5, Pod X3 Live)
    Format pedal, not bulky, lightweight but sturdy enough.
    Nice look ... the price is equivalent to other tuners of the same type

    I use it for a week, I had a TU-3 boss before this l ... Like this tuner because it very accurate and very fast compared to De Boss ... the more I find it much more efficient still readability compared to the boss ... I also appreciates the fact that it is "true bypass" and also that the signal is mut when the tuner is Switch-on ( Contrary to the opinion prcdent Erratom that says otherwise, well mine mute the signal !!!) ... The possibility also can power other pedals ...

    Quality for money excellent (85 euros at Euroguitar FDP included) ...

    In short, it's all good !!! I can only recommend!

    A Daube

    It is a stew, a good gadget to plug the holes in your pedalboard, the tuner is false, I grant three guitars with his took me over an hour and none of his guitars was given the same ( or rather the same tune) and yet I reconnect one after the other and he said they were given! Seriously for the price rather buy classic BOSS TU-3 tuner or even 15 euros what!

    Effective and robust

    An effective pedal tuner. She completed the job well, and it's solid. The LED display is nice in live situation, it helps to navigate. The strum function is cool, but do not expect not to have especially accuracy by using it. For my part, I prefer to use it to identify the most detuned strings, and after I pass on the way one note for a better reading. The settings are very good, and the ability to change the tuning reference may be useful, but only if you use the mode to strum a tune (not my case what). Oh, and on early versions, the switch is a bit hard to walk, but that's quibbling ^^.
    Otherwise, this is the top, and the value for money is good in all reports.

    Practical and effective

    True bypass pedal, battery powered (not included) or power supply boss type 9V.


    How long have you use it?

    Few months, he is attached to my pedalboard and is not about to leave! Used at home, and again in concert: it's basic and it works nickel.


    Have you tried many other models before buying it?

    I previously used a small Korg tuner, but my experience stops there ...


    What is the particular feature you like best and least?

    The tuner is very accurate in standard mode. It seems to me less effective PolyTune mode (you scratch all the strings at the same time and the screen displays the correctness of each), but it's a way a little "gadget" anyway. It can help to limit quickly…

    The tuner is very accurate in standard mode. It seems to me less effective PolyTune mode (you scratch all the strings at the same time and the screen displays the correctness of each), but it's a way a little "gadget" anyway. It can help to limit quickly view if you have a really rope to the street, but it does not go away in my opinion. A small button will also set the tuning used by default (useful if you play drop, for example).

    A stupid but is also handy with a tuner pedal format trick: pressing the switch mute on and the guitar is quite useful on stage!

    The screen offers good visibility.

    Another practical detail: it is possible to supply a second 9V pedal via the PolyTune.


    How would you rate the quality / price?

    Very good for a robust specific product (it has its importance when the scene is invested by slamment guys with their beer), well finished, super fun to use.


    With experience, you do again this choice?

    No problem!

    buy a few weeks ago on the German site well known. I hesitated with the Boss TU3 which refers in this matter, and I'm not disappointed with my choice. Matter of taste, but I find the display PolyTune nicer, more readable.

    The guitar and bass PolyTune accept (configurable on the pedal mode), as well as tuning in drop .... in short, there is a consensus as you want.

    The special feature of this pedal is to bring in more than one color mode, the "PolyTune". Note that you can scratch your 6 strings at the same time, the pedal recognizes each string and the display shows the height of 6 strings in a single view!
    In practice, nothing to do, the pedal does everything alone. The only small criticism I bring the PolyTune, it would lack (a bit) precision in this fashion:
    I did the test, after having granted rope rope my guitar (really close milimetre), when I play the six strings, the pedal tells me on two or three strings that the accuracy is not nickel, but a bit above or below the tone. Really not much, but had to find a criticism this, then here is: to quibble a bit, the precision poly tuning is not a 100% on top (and I repeat, very little difference anyway )
    Add to this that the intensity of the display is set automatically according to the ambient brightness (practice), nice look, and the sound is muted when you snap (not bad when there is agreement on scene ...) and you must get the tuning!
    very happy with my choice, this pedal responds to the expectations you can have (I think)
    a choice I do it again without hesitation.
    To note I did not put the 10/10 just because of this very, very slight lack of precision in PolyTune fashion ..... but it really is to look for the little beast

    Polyphonic tuner pedal size, equipped with a true bypass.
    I use it for 2 years now, and especially repeat concert where you can not afford to go to unplug agree!
    The screen is visible. The polyphonic mode (which was a little innovation and encouraged a lot of people to buy on the spot anyway ...) can be useful to see at a glance if you are not well tuned ( although if you use its leaves, you know that we are out of tune ...), but the accuracy is not great I think.
    Even in normal mode (single rope), I find it better but nothing more. In comparison my little Korg AW-2G clip and my old Seiko over 10 years of age are more accurate. Yet I plug just after the guitar at the beginning of the …

    Even in normal mode (single rope), I find it better but nothing more. In comparison my little Korg AW-2G clip and my old Seiko over 10 years of age are more accurate. Yet I plug just after the guitar at the beginning of the chain. At the same time, the system of red and green dots that light + / - next one is very far or not the note is necessarily less accurate than a good hand, even digital, which come one aim sweet spot in the center of the beach ... so Logic.
    Question bypass the other hand, RAS. I find that the pedal affects my sound, this is a good point.
    Luckily for me I have guitars that take good agreement, so I'm using it more for sure if it is connected ... but often I do not need.
    I do not know if I will ever ... Since this choice, a mini version came out, and I read here and there it seems more accurate ... I think if I had to change I will look closely Korg Pitchblack example, which apparently has a very good reputation ...
    Not a bad product per se, but not enough successful. Can do better especially when you see that knows how TC (Nova etc ...).

    Turn on, tune in, drop out

    TC Electronic PolyTunePublished on 12/23/12 at 12:37
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Very good tuner, fast and accurate.

    PolyTune mode is a "plus", not necessarily very effective (personally the E string bass is almost always shown as out of tune as it is right), but allows a phone pick whether you need to retune . (Or need to do it quickly and roughly).

    Drop mode has been added since (Update available on the website), it works well too.
    Damage that alternative does not exist (Open), but this is not a drama.

    In short, a bit expensive for what it is, but it makes the job very well, it is quite small, and very strong.

    Nice and very convenient!

    Suitable for guitar, bass, with or without shift key.

    I use little display "Auto" is scanned all strings and the whole spectrum of 4 or 6 strings is displayed.
    I use this function to check the end of the tune, never to fine-tune each string.

    It produces no noise disturbance and may well remain permanently connected (of course right after the guitar and not the amp input, if there are several pedals!)
    I could test in comparison with measuring pro and the response of this little gem is excellent: no false notes!

    In agreement

    This is my first pedal tuner formats. The accuracy seems to me good in any case better than my korg (even with the jack on) well it manages the transition to X drop cords. Small flat at this level since all the notes are correctly stated in sharp if not in B flat, I would prefer. PolyTune mode even if does not offer the same accuracy is certainly a big plus. Hoping TC continues to provide electronic updates on its website, this is a serious tool.

    Not for me.

    I've had it for a year, and I had the tuner korg (black foot). And in between I have kept the Korg just because I had not concentrate to watch the LED. PolyTune is satisfactory in the room in darkness, but if too light, or even a little it becomes galley to see the light. And that is disqualifying in my case.
    Since I was not covered by other modes offered by this pedal, I am separated. Plus I've always had a little doubt on the accuracy.
    So in one another, saving time that is supposed to bring this pedal was not obvious to me ...

    Pros: sturdiness, enjoy some operating modes.

    It's really a great tool: check filled in 5 sec. if it is granted on the 6 strings on stage is really great
    I could not do without!

    Good tuner

    I used it for eight months. I had a Boss TU-3 before but I opted for the Tc PolyTune because it is true bypass. PolyTune mode works very well on a guitar, a little less on a low, there is more opportunity to get a good variety of tunings to set the mode to PolyTune its tuning. An output power supply allows the use of PolyTune to redistribute the power supply current that is connected and a special entrance connects the animal to a computer to load tunings in the pedal from TC electronic site (pedal toneprint ). I was using did not have all these features, I was using the pedal in color mode. Rolls Royce of tuning, we would have liked a screen look a bit beefier and I'm not a fan of the LED …

    The price / quality ratio is good, I opted for the mini because it is true bypass, take up less space on my small board and not lose the characteristics of its big sister that I was using did not.

    Good tuner, excellent screen

    TC Electronic PolyTunePublished on 05/02/12 at 07:59
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Overall a good tuner, I find it more pleasant to use than my ex Pitchblack, mainly because of a more readable screen. In fact, I leave my amp on the PolyTune vertically and 3-4 meters I see fine "needle".
    PolyTune mode is nice to have a look here and there on the holding of the tuning, but the string after string remains the most accurate. It gives me more of a cool gadget than a must.
    I will not speak of transparency or bypass, my amp has a dedicated tuner output so I myself am not interested.
    I have only one real complaint: when the pedal is fed must still press the switch to activate it, which in my case is frustrating.
