Comments about TC Electronic Polytune 3 Pedal Tuner:

I've used many different tuners, from rackmount to other pedal types. TC electronic polytune has worked the best for me and most other musicians I know. With all it does as in settings with different tunings, this is by far the best if your a bassist tuning in alternates or F to F#!

Why Did I Wait So Long

By Cliff

from Las Vegas, NV

Comments about TC Electronic Polytune 3 Pedal Tuner:

I'm old school, been playing 40+ years, never used a tuner. Always tuned by ear because I thought it was the best way. Bought this from GC here in Vegas mainly because of the strobe tuner capabilities for setting the intonation on my guitars. Tried tuning everything up and boy I wish I would have picked one of these up a long time ago. Now I spend very little time tuning and a lot more time playing. The strum and tune all 6 strings at once is absolute brillance. I play a lot of slide in open G and D, so easy now to change. Don't wait like I did, it may not be the sexiest pedal on your board, but it is the most necessary.

            Great addition to the pedal board. I like the way the tuner looks at all strings for a quick check netween songs. This is really simple to use and is just the right brightness. I am very happy with this pedal.

              Comments about TC Electronic Polytune 3 Pedal Tuner:

              For some reason, (in single string mode) the pedal doesn't recognize the low E string, so when I'm tuning, I have to fret that string at an octave higher. It works fine then.
              Other than that, it's a great product!

                  If you don't have a pedal tuner, get this! If you have a pedal tuner but it isn't the Polytune 3, get this! Allows for very quick tuning with extreme precision. Definitely recommend if you're a serious guitarist.
