PROS: covers plenty of instruments, and almost any guitar configuration.
Believe it or not, tuners used to be real luxury items, and there really was only one brand that the professionals stood by: Peterson.▼ Article continues below ▼
The StroboClip brings the features of their original models in a small package. It’s a combination of stainless steel and plastic and feels strong, with plenty of pivot points for easy viewing, regardless of the headstock. Powered by a small coin cell watch-type battery, its orange LCD display is plenty bright, even out in the sun. It also has several modes, optimized for a variety of stringed instruments; guitar, bass, dobro, lap steel, ukulele, mandolin, violin, sitar, lute, oud. It can even cover brass and woodwind instruments as well as bagpipes. For guitarists it can also work with the Buzz Feiten tuning system, as well as in capo mode.
For guitarists or even multi-instrumentalists who use a lot of alternate tunings and or a capo, a convenient clip-on tuner is a must. The StroboClip can fill any portable electronic tuning needs.
