A compact, fast and accurate tuner is the foundation of your pedalboard. The TC Electronic Polytune 3 Mini takes things further with a built-in Bonafide Buffer to keep your tone crisp.
This is TC Electronic’s third iteration of the famous pedal in micro form – still retaining all the best bits of what makes the range great. As rightly named, the Polytune offers unique polyphonic tuning, meaning you can strum all the strings at once and it will feed back every string on the LED display.
First seen on the full size Polytune 3, the Bonafide Buffer is great for countering long cable runs from guitar to pedalboard. It negates tonal degradation by boosting the signal into your effects pedals, making the Polytune 3 perfect for sprawling setups. You can always switch back to a true bypass setting if you don’t require the extra oomph.
A secondary benefit to the Polytune 3 Mini is that you no longer have to include a separate buffer in your rig. Combined with the small physical footprint, this is one of the most versatile and pedalboard friendly tuners available.
Tune accurately thanks to chromatic, polyphonic and strobe modes. The ultra-precise strobe tuner offers ±0.02 cent accuracy for ultimate performance, while the chromatic mode is best for getting the job done in lightning fast time. You can leave the tuner on without it killing your sound, too, which is a great addition if you need to make small adjustments mid-song.
