I'm happy with my Pitchblack, but if I ever need a new tuner, or want a pedal tuner for my bass 'board... at $99 this thing is a no-brainer if it works as advertised.

Hi,

I am new here, but got a TC electronic polytuner yesterday and just wanted to tell how happy I am with it.

It just saves lots of time as you can see immediately what strings are out of tune. Very nice with floating bridge guitars that can be troublsesome to tune!

I also detected a problem with one of my guitars with the help of the polytuner; all strings get stuck in the top nut and return accuratly when pulled. I could have found out with a normal tuner, but this was so obvious now with the poly as you see it happen in front of your eyes, while with a normal tuner you have to piece together all the induvidual information of all six strings.

The poly remains very clearly visible in all kind of lighting; I tried in the dark and with a strong light on it, can't even see any difference in visibility.

I almost bought the Pitchblack as I thought the poly would be too expensive, luckely I checked in time and the poly was only 10 Euro more: done deal.

I also thought there was no battery until I removed the back out of curiosity; there sure is one included.


The polytuner almost makes tuning a fun hobby!

I have one question 'bout the Polytune : how low does it go ? I mean, does it "hear" a "Dropped D" ? (Dropped C ?...)

'Cos the tuner in my Nova stops recognising notes from a Dropped D.

I love my polytuner. True bypass, fast tuning, accurate, perfect led. Had for over a year and would never get rid of it.

Also, I tune to standard D and have no problems with it.

Great first post. Do you work for TC Electronic?

Only the igneous ones. Sedimentary and metamorphic boss rocks cannot be trusted.
So if my posts all of a sudden went from lauding Skreddy, Paul C and Analogman to "PS5 rocks with great tracking, and the MT2 brings the warm, syrupy distortion of EVH to Jason Becker" you wouldn't buy it?
