PolyTune: It's what guitars crave!


I want an outboard tuner. The LED for my multieffects is not really bright enough, and the glossy front means I have to be at the right angle. I am frustrated with that. What I want is a pedalboard that has tuner, noise gate and compression as the first three pedals and something that'll act like an amp for the DI box at the end, because for all the bells and whistles of my multi-box, I use the amp simulator, tuner and volume pedal for every sound, and maybe a little delay. There's autowah, phase, flange and lots of other stuff that I just don't use, and if I want an effect, I can't just switch that effect on and off. I want a pedalboard that I can turn what I want on and off while keeping the fundamental tone. I can keep up with what I have for tone, no problem, so the first thing I want is a tuner.

And I thought I wanted a Petersen or a PitchBlack. Now I'm thinking elsewise. This is the TC Electronics PolyTune, just announced at NAMM, which evidently allows you to hit all the strings and it'll tell you where you are. Despite the very "Brawndo" way the TC ad works, it seems like the coolest thing.
