    Comments about Peterson StroboPlus HD:

    After some 30 years of playing guitar i finally found a real tuner. The Peterson stroboPlus HD is the most accurate tuner i have ever owned hands down. I tuned my Les Paul with a boss tuner then, the peterson and it was way off. I recommend this tuner to everyone. Best of all, you cannot beat the price. Gwynne A. Brown

    Comments about Peterson StroboPlus HD:

    I had heard the Peterson tuner was the ONLY way to tune a pedal steel guitar, but I found them just too expensive. The StroboPlusHD did much to alleviate that problem. It's still expensive, but much more manageable.
    When I got my pedal steel guitar, I went the through the tuning procedure by ear and was reasonably satisfied with the results. Now that I have used this Peterson tuner I found how far off my by-ear tuning was. I can't believe how good the guitar sounds now.
    It took a little playing around to figure out how to use the tuner. The manual was a bit sketchy for detail, accuracy, and terminology, but I figured out how to download the tunings I wanted. The results are worth the effort. I'm a happy camper.

            For the price this unit is in my opinion the very best tuner for my use, electric guitar. The response time is the fastest I've seen and the precision is phenomenal.
            My first experience with it was setting up a guitar to correct high string action. I installed new strings, lowered the action and corrected the intonation. Even with the ultra fine tuner screws on the tremelo, it took very minute ticks of adjustment to get the strobe to halt and indicate the string is in tune. After completing the setup and getting it in tune, I checked the tuning against my Korg pitch black rack tuner. Everything was dead on perfect.
            If I had to dig up any complaint I would have to mention the display. To my eyes the contrast between the backlighting and the digital readout is not contrasted enough and I would like to see the digits for the notes and octave be about 50% bigger.
            This is very much nitpicking and it shouldn't be any reason to not get your hands on one of these fine units.

            Comments about Peterson StroboPlus HD:

            I haven't had the Strobo very long, but I've already tweaked the set-up and intonation on my two Les Pauls, so that essentially paid for the StroboPlus. It is simple to use and it does make it easier to get the guitars perfectly tuned. I haven't had it long enough to play around with some of the sweetened tunings, but so far so good. I've also used it to tune my Takamine Santa Fe acoustic guitar and it sounds great.

            I use this tuner on my classical guitars (2 acoustic guitars and one SoloEtte electronic--silent practice guitar). I like the stroboscopic display--makes it easy to see the effect of even minor tweaks of the tuning keys. It is very accurate and can be used to see minor imperfections in guitar intonation.

            This makes a big difference over other type tuners

            Comments about Peterson StroboPlus HD:

            I primarily bought this because I acquired a used guitar that had the Buzz Feiten tuning system, and I asked the seller how he was tuning it. He said he has a Peterson Strobo Stomp. I compared the stomp pedal version to this StoboPlus HD and decided on the StoboPlus. I have electric and acoustic guitars, and a mandolin, and was using a Boss TU12 EX high quality needle style tuner. When the guy sold me the Guitar, he had it well tuned, it sounded incredible, but after a few days, needed to be re tuned. I used the boss until receiving this Peterson, the tuning was good, but I could hear something was off, but after receiving the StoboPlus, and figuring out how to change the mode to the Feiten preset, and tuning it one time, the magical sound the guitar was back, it made that much of a difference. My ears hear out of tune very sensitively, and the SroboPlus is great. I changed the mode to acoustic guitars, tuned up several, and was amazed at how well they sounded, the sweetened software in the presets factors in string deflection on acoustics since the strings are typically set higher on an acoustic. One issue I had was, this is my first strobe tuner, and the manual wasn't clear on how to change the modes by rotating the data wheel, then pressing in on that wheel to enter the mode, then rotating the wheel again until the desired setting was found and then pressing in again to save it, I had to watch their online introductory video to learn how to use it. However after the first use, I was able to understand how a strobe tuner works, and the large screen makes it very easy to see while its in use. Even though i already had a decent tuner, I am totally satisfied I bought this, not only for the Feiten equipped axe, but for my other instruments as well.

                        I knew I could get my intonation set close with a clip-on but to really nail it I decided to purchase this Peterson tuner and it sure was the right decision. Amazing how the sound comes into sharp focus up and down the neck when you use a tuner this accurate to get the intonation correct. I highly recommend this tuner.

                        These units are awesome! The LARGE back lighted strobe-screen is the largest available without a computer screen. The sweetened turnings are a HUGE plus. The price is right. And charging is done with about any USB phone charger. Great for intonation setup work. You will regret not having gotten one when they are out of production. This is my 3rd unit--- just in case.
