Overview

The StroboFlip VS-F Virtual Strobe Tuner is a great addition to Peterson's line of multi-temperament tuners, offering easy-to-use functionality in a flexible new design. It uses Peterson's exclusive Virtual Strobe Technology to provide an instantaneous picture of musical pitch. It gives you a compact flip design, large bright LCD, and full user programmability. The StroboFlip is perfect for intonating guitars and basses as well as realtime intonation practice to improve performance and listening skills.

It features cent offset, FTS drop tuning, and tuning assistant and comes with tempered tuning presets, some of which have never before been included in a tuner. In addition to Peterson's proprietary GTR temperament, which sweetens a guitar's tuning, the VS-II adds BAS, which does the same for basses, plus E9 and C6 tempered presets for pedal steel and lap steel guitar. The StroboFlip also supports the Buzz Feiten tuning system. The Bass Shift feature allows for effortless tuning of acoustic or electric bass down to 2 octaves below a normally tuned low B on a string instrument.

Great Tuner

By Andrew

from Las Vegas, NV

Comments about Peterson StroboFlip VS-F Virtual Strobe Tuner:

I was hesitant to purchase such an expensive tuner, but I am glad I did. I'm a fairly novice guitarist, having played for about a year. I used the excuse of my clip-on tuner battery dying to purchase this one since I couldn't find a replacement battery in any of the local stores. I like several things about this tuner... 1) I can put a capo on, press a couple buttons and the tuner will tune the guitar fully understanding which fret is capo'd and displaying the string as though it was not capo'd. In other words, my EADGBE strings still display as EADGBE on the tuner even with the capo on and I can tune the guitar without having to transpose the notes. (Hey, I said I'm a rookie and that is a big deal to me.) 2) It is extremely accurate. I'm sure I'm getting a better tuning out of this than the piezo clip-on I was using before. 3) It includes an attachment that mounts the tuner onto my music stand, so it is always out, accessible and ready to tune my guitar. 4) It takes standard AA batteries and included a plug-in power adapter. I never have to worry about specialized batters or dead batteries again. 5) I haven't even begun to play with alternate tunings, temperaments, or sweeteners yet, but it has them and it looks like easy and fun stuff to play with. It is pricey, but I'm glad I spent the money.

Amazing Replacement for My Korg MT1200

By Nunya

from Chicago, Illinois

Comments about Peterson StroboFlip VS-F Virtual Strobe Tuner:

As an active musician, I am always trying to take the easy way out when it comes to set ups (guitar techs/ servants/ sherpas do most of the setting up), except for the tuning of the instruments (for reasons stated above). So me and the other two guitarists and our bassist went and each bought one of these, and it was well worth the money. Not only does it account for capos, it also has built in drop tunings of anything you could imagine (though we mainly use 1 of 4 tunings [Drop C, Drop Bb, Drop D, Standard]). If you can stand the ache of spending this much on a tuner, then this is definitely for you. And in my humble opinion, this tuner is definitely worth more than this price.

Versatility and accuracy what else can be said.

By MICHAEL SEBASTIAN

from Pennsylvania

Comments about Peterson StroboFlip VS-F Virtual Strobe Tuner:

I am totally satisfied with this tuner. I have always had a great ear for tuning my 3 guitars and thought that maybe it was time to just get a great tuner just to make sure (I'm not a spring chicken anymore and alot of time spent at concerts can really damage your hearing) that my hearing is still good. I have to say this item is dam impressive, I read alot of reviews and am glad I purchased it. I love being able to set it to my liking and set up my guitars accordingly before playing. Its alot of money but if you are a true player and will be for years to come, it is worth the money. Dont give it a second thought, if you got the bucks, get it.
