Overview

The Planet Waves Chromatic Pedal Tuner is a sweep and strobe tuner with patent-pending intuitive rotary user interface housed in a rugged, roadworthy metal enclosure. An oversized note name indicator and super-bright tuning LEDs combine to make on-stage tuning easy in all lighting conditions. Professional features like true hard bypass for preserved tone and dual 9v AC jacks make the instrument tuner at home in any pedal board configuration.

In Strobe mode, the played note appears in green on the oversized rotary display while red LEDs chase clockwise if you're sharp and counterclockwise if you're flat. They slow down and finally stop as you nail the pitch. In Sweep mode, the LEDs sweep left or right indicating whether you're flat or sharp.

A big, multi-segment note indicator in the center of the display is very legible when standing. The pedal activates the mute/bypass circuit while 3 controls above it select the tuning mode and user-selectable A435”A445 calibration.

The pedal instrument tuner runs on an included 9V battery and has 9V I/O for daisy-chaining other pedals. With its large display and true bypass that doesn't mess with your tone, it's ideal for electric guitar players who have to perform in dark conditions and who use pedal boards.

I just purchased this tuner from the Guitar Center in San Jose. So far, I'm happy with the purchase and haven't had any of the issues described by others. The display is large and shows the note, in addition to the large lights which indicate if you're flat or sharp. The housing is very sturdy metal and has a chrome finish. I'm running it into a Splawn Competition (50W, modified marshall-type head) and don't have any noise problems. I'm running off the 9V battery. You can choose between silent tuning and audible tuning, depending on which jack you use. The box indicates that this device has a "true bypass" which is good to me. Overall, I like the value in this product.

Wen't to Guitar Center planning on getting the BOSS pedal tuner or the Korg pedal tuner. When I mentioned what I wanted this guy just insisted that I get the Planet Waves pedal tuner because they'd been selling alot and had good reviews. So I said it's got a bigger display and it's cheaper and they through in some patch cables with it. Good deal I thought. This thing makes an awful hum when in silent tuning mode. Everytime the lights change on the pedal it changes tone of the hum and is very irritating. So if you use a powered pedal board(such as a Furman) with any kind of distortion or wah(or anything with a high gain) this isn't a good idea. I'm definately returning this product.

Great Tuner Pedal!!!

By affolterbass

from Baldwin, WI

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves PW-CT-04 Chromatic Pedal Stage Tuner:

I bought the Planet Waves Chromatic Pedal Tuner today and it is great. I wanted to buy a strob tuner, but I couldn't afford the super high-priced tuners. When I saw this pedal and saw that it was from Planet Waves, I bought it. It is really heavy which is a good thing because it can take a beating. The no-skid back is great. I would recommend this pedal tuner to anyone!

See in tune! Stay in tune!

By Stuart

from Detroit,Michigan

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves PW-CT-04 Chromatic Pedal Stage Tuner:

This is a great tuner that is practically bullet proof. It's solid and durable, and you could probably drive nails with it too! It has an excellent display that is perfect and easily visible from a normal distance, a strobe mode, and tunes easily in 440 and reads sharp & flat for easy detuning! Uses a 9 volt battery or you can purchase a power supply as well.

Garbage!

By Ken

from Albuquerque, NM

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves PW-CT-04 Chromatic Pedal Stage Tuner:

Everything bad that the other reviews note are true. This tuner does have a terrible hum that made it impossible to use unless my amp was in standby mode. The LED is impossible to read during outdoor gigs. But most importantly, it broke completely after my 4th gig. The battery compartment wouldn't stay shut and it would not tune. Don't even think about buying this, get a Boss Tuner.

Planet Waves Stomp Tuner

By hbucker

from HR, CO

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves PW-CT-04 Chromatic Pedal Stage Tuner:

I understand this may just be a problem if you use a power cord and not a battery, but when tuning in the mute mode, it emits a hum when sensing the note. It is really quite loud and irritiating. I was very disappointed and wanted to make this work so I exchanged my first one for another. Both performed the same way. I also tried them on different amps with the same result. If Planet Waves fixes this problem, it will probably be a dynamite product. As it is, for me, it is unusable.

Good Tuner

By SOS man

from Pensacola, FL

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves PW-CT-04 Chromatic Pedal Stage Tuner:

I must say that when I first bought this tuner I was kind of skeptical because it was not as expensive as the boss. After i bought it, however, i found that i was very satisfied with it because it is very accurate, it has different tuning modes, it's good for de tunings, and it has a big and bright display.

Best Pedal Tuner on the Market!

By Dulcimerist

from Billings, MT

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves PW-CT-04 Chromatic Pedal Stage Tuner:

After looking at the Boss TU-2 and Fender PT-100 chromatic tuner pedals, I decided on the Planet Waves CT04 due to its larger display. Upon receiving it, I was impressed! Not only is the Planet Waves pedal tuner built more durable than the Fender model, it's also built noticeably tougher than the Boss TU-2! The all-metal casing and heft of the Planet Waves CT04 makes it the most road-worthy pedal I've ever seen! The tuner performs excellently, is extremely accurate, and has a very bright display. Being able to choose between bypass and muted tuning also makes it versatile. The pedal produces no noise whatsoever, making it quieter than the competition. Powering the CT04 with a 1 SPOT (or similar power source), along with a Boss PCS20A daisy chain, allows the pedal tuner to power a truckload of effects pedals, making this the perfect choice for the pedalboard! This is a must-have item!

sucks with power supply

By nomad 100

from Indiana

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves PW-CT-04 Chromatic Pedal Stage Tuner:

If you use a none isolated power supply with other pedals this tuner is not for you. A distorted tone is heard threw your amp while tuning regardless if your using the muted output or not. If you batteries or an isolated power supply you'll be fine.

Beware

By BDP

from Atlanta, Georgia

Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves PW-CT-04 Chromatic Pedal Stage Tuner:

Only buy this tuner if you plan on replacing it after 1 year. After the second battery change it developed a short in the battery connector. I was able to get a replacement part from Radio Shack and make the repair myself. On the next battery change the tab to open the battery compartment broke off. I was not able to fix this, but the tuner still worked. The next time I was back in the store I told the sales guy about my problem and he said that the same thing happened to his tuner. About 3 months later the switch to turn it on and off broke. Now it's dead! I have a large collection of effects pedals. Most are over 5 years old. I have never had one fall apart like this one. If I pay this much for a tuner I expect it to last longer than 1 year. Pro: It tracked the signal very fast and was very accurate. Con: Poor Construction Quality

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves PW-CT-04 Chromatic Pedal Stage Tuner:

    I bought this when it first came out a grip of years ago I didn't write a review then because I was self absorbed so I'll rectify that. I purchased this in store but it doesn't matter with condition you receive merchandise in that respect. This one is solid, reliable, functional and straightforward. I like Planet Waves merchandise. The type of designs they came out with are what a lot of others should have done previously so I believe in supporting. If I had the cash to buy anything I would have bought a Peterson without comparing but that's typical human nature. This pedal has been through it with me and it could have doubled as a protective weapon if I needed.

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves PW-CT-04 Chromatic Pedal Stage Tuner:

    I upgraded from a Danelectro tuner to this one. The planet waves my be a little expensive than some others, but when you get it you will know where your money went. Is very acurate, offers true bypass and cool easy to see indicator lights. I am very happy with this tuner.

    Planet Waves Pedal Tuner

    By jconway

    from Philadelphia

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves PW-CT-04 Chromatic Pedal Stage Tuner:

    This is THE BEST pedal tuner out there. It is a bit more expensive than the flimsy Fender PT-100 tuner, yet cheaper than the Boss TU-2. This pedal is built like a tank, and a very shiny tank at that. The LCD screen is very bright and easily readible on a dark stage. It has a few different modes/options for tuning, and its true-bypass! It has an extra ac adapter jack, so it can power uour other pedals too and has great battery life. You won't be sorry if you buy this pedal.

    Planet Waves Crashes

    By DannyLee

    from knoxville, TN

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves PW-CT-04 Chromatic Pedal Stage Tuner:

    Yeah, I bought this particular pedal cuz i wanted to stay within my budget, but it turned out to be a pretty poor decision. I've had all kinds of problems with it and it has shorted out and cut off in the middle of shows. So over all i think the quality just doesn's compare to some of the other pedals out there.

    Hey! It Works!

    By Joe Voodoo

    from Sacramento, California

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves PW-CT-04 Chromatic Pedal Stage Tuner:

    After selling my Crate amp with the built in tuner I found myself needing a tuner to place on my board. I was looking at Boss and Korg which I am sure are great but after my band Rehearsal I decided on this one from Plantet Waves. 1st the price is great. 2nd visibility is awesome. 3rd, Accurate and responsive. Lastly, its a Tank... except for the plastic pedal portion. BUT my bass player stated it broke on him, he sent it in to Planet Waves and expecting just fixing it... THEY sent him a new one fast! So just don't stomp on it like your other pedals and you should have no problem. Off to GC to get one!

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves PW-CT-04 Chromatic Pedal Stage Tuner:

    I went to Guitar Center in Hobart cause my band was practicing the next day and i needed a tuner pedal. So i go in and buy this pedal when i got home it wouldnt work at all! The lights on it were flashing but when i would play a note nothing would happen. I would return it but i lost my reciept.

    I've only had this tuner a week, but am glad it was recommended by GC. Heavy weight so it stays put. Excellent display. Very accurate. And it the finish matches the hardware on my new SR700!

    Hands down best pedal for the money!

    By Mark Woltz

    from Lancaster, Ohio

    Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves PW-CT-04 Chromatic Pedal Stage Tuner:

    I've used this petal now for over a year and never had a problem with it. I play 4 to 6 gigs a month, used it in several different configurations and it delivers. It has an extra jack to output 9V to another pedal if you are using an AC adapter, so you can power 2 pedals with one adapter. It has two outputs, one to use the mute feature of the pedal and one to send the signal straight through. It has two modes of tuning, strobe and sweep. I find the strobe mode extra useful when making intonation adjustments on your guitar, and use the sweep mode during gigs. Lastly, this thing is built better than any other pedal I've ever owned. It's a tank! You would have to really mistreat this pedal to break it. Players, you can't go wrong owning this pedal.
