The TC Electronic Polytune 2 has all the legendary features of the original Polytune. But TC, not happy with their original Polyphonic tuner, decided to go one step better, and refine it even more... The Polytune 2!
Polytune 2 features super-high accuracy with a new strobe tuning mode, a bright LED display, plus a whole host of convenience features: memory of your preferences, a highly-intuitive tuning experience where no detail has been missed, down to the action of the tuning "needle", and true bypass so that when you aren't 'Polytuning', your tone is exactly how it would be without the tuner in the chain!
Here's what TC Electronic say about the Polytune 2
We've taken all that is awesome about our smash hit PolyTune and fine-tuned perfection with the addition of a ridiculously accurate (+/-0.1 cent) ultra-fast strobe mode and a retina-scorching bright display that guarantees maximum visibility under all circumstances!
- PolyTune - Tune all strings simultaneously
- New super fast precise strobe tuning mode with +/- 0.1 cent accuracy
- Improved analog circuit
- New retina-scorching bright display
The original PolyTune rocked the world. It forever changed the way we look at tuning. The world's first polyphonic tuner took the hearts of guitarists by storm. Was it the jaw-droppingly awesome polyphonic tuning that made tuning much faster, easier and intuitive- The bright LED matrix with auto-dimming that ensured maximum visibility- Tuning Magnet, the slowing of the needle as you approached the correct pitch- Maybe the MonoPoly technology that sensed whether you played one or six strings and instantly adjusted accordingly- Like musicians who never really know how they wrote that number 1 hit, it was probably a combination of factors for us. Whatever it was, you loved it and we loved it! But at TC Electronic we're all about moving forward, so we've improved on perfection and added some guitarist gems that cement PolyTune 2 as the leader of the pedal tuning pack.
Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few years, you'll know this. With PolyTune, you simply strum all strings on your guitar or bass at once and it will immediately tell you which strings need tuning! It really is as simple as strum - tune - rock! This way, you spend minimum time tuning and maximum time doing what you love the most - playing.
And They Thought Einstein Was Bright!
You ain't seen nothing yet! The display on PolyTune 2 is primed with some of the brightest LEDs you've ever laid your eyes on. Remember when some tuners were really good for daytime gigs, and others excelled in dark clubs- With PolyTune 2, you get an instant clear overview, no matter what the situation. And the ambient light sensor makes sure you get just the right amount of brightness. Every time. It's truly amazing how bright they get, so don't come complaining if planets want to orbit your pedalboard.
The Strobe Is Strong With This One
The original PolyTune was best in class when it came to precision. Great – but why stop there? We’ve received many requests from the guitar community to add a strobe tuner – a decision we’d been debating internally as well. So let there be strobe! For fine-tuning your precious gear and giving it the care and attention it deserves, to super accurate tuning in the studio or by a roadie on stage. This strobe tuner is lightning fast and ultra precise. But how precise is it? Well, let’s just say if you tune and then put your pick on the fret-board – you’re going to see the difference (we’re not even joking).
The tuner magnet feature slows down the needle once you get close to the desired pitch, delivering a quick and easy tuning experience – any time, every time.
MonoPoly instantly recognizes whether you play one or more strings and replies with the appropriate polyphonic or monophonic tuning mode.
PolyTune 2 stores your preferences. From pitch reference to tuning mode, it hangs on to this information even after it is powered down, making sure you only have to set how you want things to happen once.
Brighten Up Your Day
This feature will make you smile. Basically, the new LEDs in PolyTune 2 are bright enough to be seen from space, but the ambient light sensor in PolyTune 2 ensures you always have the right brightness. The result? A clear and pleasant visibility, no matter what situation you’re in.
This allows for your carefully sculpted tone to flow unaffected when the pedal is bypassed and for silent tuning once engaged.
