With the TC Electronic Polytune 3 tuner pedal, you'll never play an out-of-tune note again. This next-generation tuner provides fast, precision tuning for guitarists and bassists. Whether you're performing live, recording in the studio or practicing at home, the Polytune 3 offers versatile tuning modes to suit any situation.

Tune All Strings at Once

The Polytune 3's polyphonic mode lets you strum all your strings at once and see each string's tuning instantly displayed on the bright LED screen. With a single strum, you're ready to rock in seconds. For live playing, the polyphonic mode is a must-have, allowing quick tuning even in dimly lit stages.

Choose the Precision You Need

For precision tuning, use the Polytune 3's chromatic mode. Pluck each string individually and the tuner detects the note you're playing, and how sharp or flat you are from the target pitch. The high-definition screen displays needle-point accuracy so you can get perfectly in tune. When recording or fine-tuning, chromatic mode gives you the control you need.

Achieve Ultimate Tuning Precision

The Polytune 3 also offers a strobe tuner mode for the highest level of tuning accuracy. The strobe display allows you to tune your instrument to exacting standards. By tuning each string to the point where the strobe display is most still, you can achieve +/- 0.02 cents accuracy for any performance situation. Strobe mode is ideal when laying down tracks in the studio or setting up your instrument.

Protect Your Tone With Built-in Buffer

In addition to multiple tuning modes, the Polytune 3 features TC Electronic's BonaFide buffer to preserve your core tone no matter the length of your cable run. For comprehensive tuning and tone protection, the TC Electronic Polytune 3 tuner pedal has you covered.

Tune all Strings Simultaneously With Polyphonic Tuning

Strumming all six strings at once, the PolyTune 3 recognizes each note and shows you the tuning status for every string clearly on the LED display. The intuitive polyphonic tuning mode makes tuning fast and foolproof. Just strum and you'll instantly see which strings need fine tuning, ensuring you hit the stage perfectly in tune every time.

Choose From Chromatic, Capo, Drop D and Alternate Tunings

The PolyTune 3 goes beyond standard tuning with multiple handy modes. The Chromatic mode lets you tune each string independently. Capo tuning adjusts for using a capo so you can transpose while staying in tune. Drop D tuning quickly gets you ready to rock. Alternate tunings like open G are also available to explore new tones. With the PolyTune 3, you'll have the right tuning mode for any style of music.

Maintain Optimal Tone With Built-in Bonafide Buffer

This pedal has TC Electronic's high-quality Bonafide buffer circuit built right in. Just switch it on to preserve your tone and sustain over long cable runs and complex pedalboards. The transparent, low-impedance buffer keeps your signal strong. That means no muddiness or treble loss between your guitar and amp, giving you optimal tone at all times.
