UNMATCHED ACCURACY

Our patented Virtual Strobe Technology doesn't allow an intune/out of tune decision to ever be made electronically. Your eye simply interprets the motion of the pattern as an indication of tuning error relative to the target pitch.

This level of accuracy is the highest in the industry and what has made Peterson the choice of professionals around the globe for over 65 years.

HUGE SWEETENED TUNING LIBRARY

The StroboRack's tuning library contains a whopping 35 tempered and exclusive Peterson Sweetened tunings.

User-defined presets allow users to create uniquely-named presets for instant recall from the front panel.

Is the accuracy the same for all Peterson tuners?

Yes, the accuracy is within 0.1 cents (1/1000 of one semitone) as with all Peterson Strobe Tuners. An important thing to note is that Peterson Strobe Tuners have ultra high definition displays, so not only are they highly accurate in detecting a note but they have the ability to display that accuracy. Other products claim accuracy but do not have the high definition screen to display the level of accuracy in which they claim. If you cannot see the accuracy, it is of little value. Only Peterson provides High Definition Strobe Tuning.

How do I read a strobe display?

Basically, the strobe image appears to travel to the left if your instrument is flat of the desired pitch and to the right if it is sharp. On earlier models such as the StroboStomp 1, StroboStomp 2, VS-1, VS-II and V-SAM, the strobe image travels upward if your instrument is sharp and downward if your instrument is flat of the desired pitch.

Adjust your instrument until the pattern is as close to still as possible. Strobe displays are 'real-time' and extremely high definition. They require very precise tuning adjustments to stop the display because the frequency/pitch of any instrument is never totally stable.

You'll quickly learn to read the display, make the most precise adjustments and appreciate the high resolution that only a Peterson provides.

What is the difference between Drop/Capo and Key?

Drop Tuning refers to the re-naming of notes when changing the tuning to a lower pitch one half step or more down on guitar or bass.

To aid musicians not familiar with note names outside the standard EADG(BE) or whatever the original tuning is, choosing -1, -2 etc. will cause the instrument to be lowered in pitch by one, two half steps etc. without the original note names being changed. Any Sweetener settings chosen in conjunction with a drop tuning setting are preserved and applied to the correct strings.

Capo Tuning refers to raising the pitch by means of a Capo d'Astro. To aid musicians not familiar with note names outside the standard EADG(BE) or whatever the original tuning is, choosing +1, +2 etc. will cause the instrument to be raised in pitch by one, two half steps etc. when the capo is applied to the first, second fret etc. without the original note names being changed.

The alternate Key settings are used for instruments played in a key other than the key of C. The note display will change so the proper note for those instruments will be shown. Common examples would be Saxophone (Eb), Trumpet (Bb) and French Horn (F).
