    We've all probably heard about this by now but since there wasn't a thread about it I thought I'd start one to get chatting about it. Who's going to sell their original PolyTune in favor of this little guy?! I sure know I am! Been trying to condense my board and this will help out a ton.

    Anyone know when this is supposed to hit stores? And how much is it supposed to cost?

    Won't sell, but I'll buy a second probably. Put one of them on my main board, and the larger one on my keyboard's pedalboard to tune my Moog.

    The biggest thing for me is that my board it not super cramped. It could be cool on a pt nano but i think for most applications your only going to get an extra half inch which in 90% of the cases is not a deal breaker.

    Also im not super happy with the accuracy of the big polytune so i cant imagine the smaller one is going to have better accuracy.

    And the last thing is i think pedals in the size enclosure are just plain goofy looking and it would be incredibly hard to read.

    BUT i do see the benifits of someone who only needs a pt nano and that extra half inch would be huge.

    I really love mine. Really compact, and the new footswitch is great. I moved my full size polytune to my "heavy metal" pedalboard.

    beta testing. I don't think I can find anywhere in stock in the USA even though it's already out in Germany...

    Hmmm...honestly, as of now now, these aren't the results I was expecting! Those who say no, is it just because you'll buy one for another rig and keep your existing one, you don't care for the smaller display, or you just don't need the space savings?

    It might be that they don't have a full sized polytune...some people just like to vote in polls...

    Voted no because when I will replace my Polytune it will be in favor of the ST-200 Turbo Tuner.

    no 9v jack, no usb adapter for future updates.

    I don't like to run pedals on batteries only, so it's a deal breaker for me.

    I plan to buy one for the smaller board I am planning to build (unless it really does not have a 9v jack), and I will keep my Turbo Tuner on my big board.
