Since the 1960s, Peterson strobe tuners have been the gold standard for professional musicians and instrument makers. The new StroboClip™ packs many of the features of Peterson's larger models into the world's first compact clip-on digital strobe tuner.
Patented Virtual Strobe™ technology brings an array of preset "sweetened" tunings for acoustic instruments, those subtle adjustments to equal temperament that make notes sound more harmonious anywhere on the fingerboard. You get 29 tuning modes in all, for practically any stringed instrument; for brass, woodwinds and pipes; for the Buzz Feiten System, AND user-calibration for overdubbing or playing along with hard-to-tune instruments such as pianos.
The StroboClip requires no wires or mics: all of that tuning precision—down to 1/1000 semitone—is available right on your instrument, at the touch of a button, on a bright, easy-to-read high-definition digital display. You could never hope to achieve this level of tuning ease and versatility by ear on a dark noisy stage!
Simply clip it onto the headstock—a sensitive piezo element in the spring-loaded clip picks up direct vibrations, unaffected by surrounding sounds. Peterson's exclusive Sustain Mode allows prolonged note viewing time for instruments with short sustain too, such as banjos.
Padded contact surfaces and a swiveling lower jaw on the spring clip help protect your instrument. The brushed-aluminum display housing swivels in three dimensions, so you'll always have a clear view. Even the storage case is impressive, a roadworthy compact metal container with form-fitted padding to protect the StroboClip when not in use. Auto sleep and power-off help conserve battery life.
