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.

Tuning range: C0 to B6
Concert pitch range: 400-490Hz
CR2032 coin cell battery included.

In tune, at last!

I was skeptical about the accuracy of a clip on tuner.. How nice it was to find that the Peterson is so precise. I use it when intonating my Bass builds and they sound great! The sweetened tunings are an added bonus. The difference is amazing. Another great product from Stewmac.

Best tuner, period!

This is just what the Dr. ordered! I have the big brother to this one for when I'm near an outlet, but when I'm going acoustic and unplugged, this is the best you can do for your self...believe, you want whips and jingles, this little dude delivers...tune up...Walt

The best tuner I've found

I only wish I had found this tuner earlier in my quest for a more accurate tuner. The sweetened tunings are the trick. Craig's list here I come with some really pretty slightly used tuners.

The best

This is with out doubt the best clip on tuner I have seen. Excellent value for money and the sweetened tunings for all instruments make it very versatile.

Best tuner ever

In my 35+ years of playing guitar I've had several tuners but without question this is my vote for #1. I removed my stomp tuner from my pedal board, that says it all.

My favorite tuner

Love the low latency of this tuner. It locks in fast to the frequency you are tuning. And it is sensitive but still gets the fundamental right most of the time. You have to be careful with the preset sweet'ners. I've tuned my guitar to the dobro setting more than once. Ouch!

Simply Awesome!

For years I've played an EUB, Ampeg Baby Bass in a quartet with two guitars. It is amazing how the bass now fits perfectly within the guitars. Hands down this is the best tuner I have ever owned, I've been playing for over 35 years and owned many others.

This is a Super Product!

The first time I used this tuner on my banjo I was sitting in the living room with my wife. I don't think she knew I had a new tuner. After I used it in the "sweetened" mode and played a little she said "I don't know what you did but that sounds really good." I about fell over because she is usually indifferent about my banjo building and playing. I explained I bought a new tuner but it was a little pricey. She said it was worth it

For my wife to notice this has to be a great product. I also agree with her assessment.

I sold my other electronic tuner. If you are trying to decide on a less expensive model or this one invest a little more and get a product that really works great.
