Peterson tuners have been in the business of producing A-grade
tuning devices for quite some time now, from desktop models
designed for the discerning guitar tech, through pedal based
devices for live use, to the latest software based products
for working within DAW recording systems.
Their latest innovation the StroboClip
brings the strobotic tuner to the
arena of portable clip on tuners, useful for many instruments
which in this case, need not be even electric for its use.
The StroboClip is a lightweight clip-on
tuning device which with a foam pad to avoid marking your
finish, clips onto the headstock of most stringed instruments.
The device is housed in a handsome brushed aluminum casing
together with a swivel clip to provide maximum flexibility
as to its position on your instrument for easy and clear reading.
Powered by a long life lithium cell the bright orange display
is easily seen and can tune your instrument to 1/10 cent accuracy
which is in keeping with all other Peterson strobe products.
Basic operation is as easy as simply swiveling the clip into
the desired position, clipping onto your instrumentís headstock
and turning on the unit.
I tested the device on several guitars such as a Gibson 335
semi-hollow, Fender Stratocaster solid, a soprano ukulele
and a dreadnought acoustic guitar all with great results and
noticeably better tuning than your average tuner.
†The tuner also offers
28 Peterson Sweeteners or Temperaments (as in the reviewed
Strobosoft) for enhancing those
chord voicings and solo runs, as
well as a sustain mode to ease tuning instruments with short
sustain such as a banjo.
All in all an excellent well made product which will enhance
any instruments musicality.
