Positively PolyTune

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.

• PolyTune® Technology - Tune All Strings Simultaneously 

• Retina-scorching Bright Display

• Ultra-precise Chromatic Strobe Tuner 

Polyphonic Perfection

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). 

Backstage Pass - All Access

With PolyTune 2, we wanted enhanced performance and maximum precision, without getting away from what made the original PolyTune such a hit. Have a look at our feature list, which combines the revolutionary with a strong display of innovation.

PolyTune: Strum - Tune - Rock!

PolyTune® is the world’s first polyphonic tuner – a multiple patents pending, game-changing total tuning turnaround that allows you to instantly gauge the tuning of all your strings simultaneously and tune up on the fly, ALL strings at once. What else can we say besides: BAM, son!

Chromatic Champ

Besides the Polyphonic tuner, PolyTune has a chromatic tuner that can hang with the best current tuning technology out there, with an amazing 0.5 cent accuracy.

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.

Full Strobe Ahead

The strobe tuner in PolyTune 2 is super accurate and super fast. Finetune your instruments with surgical precision at blinding speeds. Sounds good, right? We’re talking +/- 0.1Cent tuning accuracy and in case you don’t really know what that means – believe us there are atomic clocks that’d kill for that accuracy.

Tuning Magnet

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

MonoPoly instantly recognizes whether you play one or more strings and replies with the appropriate polyphonic or monophonic tuning mode.

True Bypass

This allows for your carefully sculpted tone to flow unaffected when the pedal is bypassed and for silent tuning once engaged.

Total Recall

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.

Polytune 2's Resume

• PolyTune® - Tune all strings simultaneously
• New chromatic strobe tuner - 0.1 cent tuning accuracy
• New bigger and brighter LED display with ambient light sensor 

• Drop-D and capo tuning modes
• True bypass with silent tuning

• DC output for powering other pedals
• 3M Velcro for pedal board attachment

New features include a brighter display with an 'ambient' light sensor, and a chromatic strobe tuning mode that increases the pedal's tuning accuracy to +/- 0.1 cent. The new ultra-bright display is designed not just for dimly lit stages, but also for sunny outdoor gigs, when virtually all tuners we've tried are impossible to read. The best pedal tuner just got better.

TC Electronic seems to be at the top of its game when it comes to delivering user-friendly, reliably, well-built products, and this latest PolyTune is no exception. If you already own a PolyTune you will know just how great they are and may well be tempted to buy this one. If you don't already own one, then you really need this in your life!

I have to conclude that this sturdily built little tuner does pretty much what it claims to, with no fuss and with a nice clear display. Its compact format makes it easy to fit into a pedalboard, and its true bypass means that it won’t compromise your tone.

Its rugged metal housing and the perfectly lit and easy to read display make it the ideal partner on the stage as well as in the studio. The TC Polytune is currently one of the best tuners on the market, with all its features it's worth every penny.

The polytune is a transparent addition to your pedalboard. The true bypass circuitry works as expected, and our signal sounded the same bypassing the tuner as it did with a cable straight into the front of our amp.

The ability to check all strings simultaneously is nothing short of revolutionary. With the groundbreaking, time-saving, and (dare I say) performance enhancing convenience of polyphonic tuning thrown in the mix, there's simply no competition.

I felt so cool when I would hit the tuner, unplug one guitar, plug in the next guitar, give it one strum while muted, make a few adjustments and move on to the next song. There were much fewer awkward pauses between each song where you feel like you have to stall while your dumb guitar gets tuned.

The auto switching feature is great so you can decide for yourself. If you’re a cutting edge Poly Tuner – go for it! If you’re old school, go string by string – doesn’t matter. The PolyTune will get you there quickly and reliably one way or another.
