User Comment Section

What people are saying about the StroboFlip:

"The StroboFlip is a quick and sure-fire way to have students accurately tune their string instruments. It is small, light, and simple to use. The bridge clip works great. I have found the StroboFlip to help my students learn to tune their open strings as well as their perfect-fifth tuning. I applaud the makers of StroboFlip!"

- Bob Gillespie, Professor of Music - Strings, Ohio State University, Immediate Past National President, American String Teachers Association.

"Not only would I find these tools useful in the university and private lesson studios, but I am also the director of a Suzuki string institute."

- Paula E. Bird, Director, TX State University Suzuki String Institute.

"How much my students are enjoying the Strobo-Flip. I have a studio of 40 plus students and it really helps them to actually see if they are sharp or flat. I can spend time telling them but seeing is believing. Thanks again!"

- Nina R. Mavrinac, Private Suzuki violin instructor, Converse, Texas.

"As a professional violist and string teacher, I have found that the current tuners on the market have not addressed the specific tuning reqirements that we need in the string profession. Now, with the Peterson Stroboflip, we finally have a tuner that meets our needs. In addition to being very precise for the tuning of a viola or violin etc., you can use this tuner to fix intonation as you play. With this added feature, the StroboFlip is so much more than just a device to tune one's intrument, but also a fantastic teaching and training tool for intonation problems in a piece or exersize. Thank you Peterson Tuners for creating this wonderful new product!"

- Christopher Parsons, Professional violist, session player & teacher.
