Overview

The DigiTech HardWire Series HT-2 is a chromatic tuner pedal that is visible, accurate, and durable when in use; transparent when not. The cornerstone of every pedal board is a reliable tuner. The HardWire Chromatic Tuner's true bypass means that when it is off, it's out of the circuit. With the DigiTech Ht-2 tuner you can tune with confidence, using tone with integrity.

The DigiTech HardWire pedal series represents DigiTech's commitment to quality and attention to subtle details. In addition to technical enhancements like true bypass and high voltage operation, all HardWire pedals feature rugged, all-metal construction; a wide, stage-stable footprin; durable, custom-machined metal knobs for a sure grip; and precision potentiometers that guarantee knob positions will stay intact.

The rugged, durable construction of Extreme Performance Pedals is just the beginning. Inside each DigiTech HardWire pedal are technological features that serious players require—all updated and improved to their utmost capacity. True bypass preserves the purity of your original tone as signal passes through the pedal, and high voltage operation further protects your sound by eliminating clipping and other signal degradation caused by power drain.

With the high-output pickups found on some electric guitars, it's not unusual to hear clipping when playing through an effects pedal. This occurs when the voltage range produced by a guitar's pickup is greater than the operating voltage of the effects pedal—normally limited to the voltage supplied by the effect's battery or power supply. HardWire pedals incorporate circuitry that increases the operating voltage headroom above that of the typical pedal. As such, HardWire pedals benefit a wider range of guitars and are also at home in an amplifier's effects loop.

Features
  • True Hardwire bypass
  • LED note display + 11 LED tuner array
  • Normal and strobe tuning modes
  • 9VDC battery operation

This is a solidly built stomp box tuner. It works by just plugging in your guitar chord, so you can use it to tune even if you don't want to set up your whole pedal board. True bypass, makes it great to have in the pedal board. This is why I never had one before, because they all seemed to suck some power. This one does not. As far as tuning you guitar. This is better than any portable tuner I have ever used. This is even better than any of the rack tuners I have used over the years. When you hit your string, it does not bounce all over the place, it finds the note and holds it there until it is solid in the middle. I instantly knew I finally found a good tuner after 27 years playing guitar. GC had it on sale for $79 which made it that much better. It is worth every penny of that and more. Get this one!!!!!

I bought this pedal new and within three months it stopped working with battery power. I checked the wires and conector and they're OK, something internal. I expect more out of a hundred dollar tuner.

    This thing is awesome! Deadly accurate with a super bright display. Great for setting up intonation. If you're really worried about batteries you probably shouldn't be using pedals anyway!!!

      Comments about Digitech HardWire Series HT-2 Chromatic Tuner:

      When I first received this tuner, it didn't work. I took it to Guitar Center only to find out the new battery that came in the unit was dead. Guitar Center gave me a new battery. I took the tuner home and tried it; it worked fine. The next day I tried to use it again and once again the battery was dead. I put in a another new battery and once again it worked fine. The next day this battery (the third battery in as many days) was dead. I've not used the tuner since.

          Much better/faster at finding the note than my previous ibanez model. Looks like they dropped the price due to releasing a "polytune" model that I care nothing about. This is a steal at the reduced price.

            I bought mine about 6 months ago after shopping several others and for the money there isn't one better. I know of at least two others who bought one as a direct result of having seen and used mine. All of the Hardwire pedals represent extreme bargains and the HT-2 is so exception. It's well worth the price.

                  This is well built tuner. The multicolored lights are bright and easy to read from a distance. It has no affect on the tone of my guitar and responds quickly to a plucked string.

                      what's not to like quiet, easy to see, accurate, rugged, like the strobe mode as you know how close your getting to pitch early on which allows you to get "on" faster. Checked it with my home Peterson and it's dead on.

                      i replaced my boss tu2 with this. man was that ever a mistake, yeah its built well and the features are good but it doesn't work half the time for me. i've tried it first in my chain, last in my chain, and even alone and it doesn't track my notes at all. maybe it's because i'm in dropped B tuning but my old boss tu 2 never had that problem. i'm going to get rid of this and get the korg pitch black

                      This is the first pedal in my chain. I run it through 7 pedals and i use it on all my amps and haven't had any problems. Its a great tuner, its easy to use and the mute setting is one of my favorite options. Ive use it on all of my guitars to tune from stander to drop C with ease.

                      To me, a good tuner should be the one pedal you never have to play with or think about; it shouldn't alter your tone, it should be be accurate and it should be easy to read. This pedal accomplishes all these things. It's also built like a tank and probably the last tuner I'll ever have to buy.
