As Jools Holland’s bassist for almost three decades, Dave Swift is arguably the UK’s highest-profile bass player and one who's performed with countless legends of our time. Talking about Peterson, Dave wrote:

“I’ve been a pro musician for 37 years, playing double bass, trombone, guitar and a wide range of bass guitars. The double bass, fretless bass guitar and trombone in particular are challenging to play in tune, so tuning & intonation are extremely important to me. Working with Jools Holland full time for 27 years and being the house bassist on his BBC TV and Radio 2 shows, I get called to play with a huge array of international and iconic artists, including Paul Simon, James Taylor, George Benson, Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, Adele, Ed Sheeran, Smokey Robinson and hundreds more, so all of my instruments have to be perfectly in tune and I always need the best and most reliable tuners in the studio and on tour. I play 4, 5, 6 and even 7 string bass guitars and my Peterson tuners tune all of my basses accurately and perfectly. My 7 string bass guitars are tuned BEADGCF (low to high). That’s an enormous range and not all tuners can handle it. My Peterson tuners have no problem whatsoever and tune my basses 100% spot on, every time! I’ve owned countless tuners in my career, but none of them have been as precise, accurate and consistent as my Peterson strobe tuners. Ever since I started using them I can’t ever imagine using any other brand of tuner. They are without question the best tuners I’ve ever used”

StroboStomp HD

$149.00

Featuring the largest tuning display Peterson Tuners has ever incorporated into one of their pedal tuners, the StroboStomp HD boasts a high-definition, LCD screen that incorporates a variable color LED backlight. The user-selectable colors can be used to personalize the tuner or to increase display viewing quality in different levels of ambient lighting depending on the usage environment. The vibrant screen colors can also be assigned to stock or user presets to significantly reduce menu navigation time and increase on-stage tuning confidence at the gig. For tone purists, the StroboStomp HD provides a 100% silent, true-bypass operation mode to keep precious tone safe, as well as, eliminate the often annoying “pop” experienced when engaging such a feature in other products. It uses a unique series of timed relays incorporated within its circuitry to shunt the signal, draining the cause of the popping sound prior to breaking the connection, and effectively shutting the tuner down for direct play through without affecting tone quality. The StroboStomp HD also includes a long-time, user-requested buffered output operation mode that can be user engaged. The buffered mode can be used in or out of monitor mode. It is designed to boost instrument drive to overcome potential tone loss in signal chains that incorporate multiple low-impedance guitar pedals or those that utilize long cable runs. The buffered output modes preserve sonic quality all through the instrument range and keep prized core tone intact. The StroboStomp HD features over 100 exclusive Sweetened Tunings™, as well as, numbered guided tuning presets for a large variety of instruments and playing styles. Sweetened Tunings are exclusive to Peterson tuning products and are designed to help correct inherent tuning issues exhibited by many instruments. The new "Guided Tunings" mode allows the StroboStomp HD to display numeric string values instead of traditional note names making for sure-fire intuitive and rapid re-tuning to any number of open and alternative tunings. The Guided Tuning mode was instituted for beginners who want to experiment with popular alternate tunings, as well as, experienced players who employ multiple tunings in rapid succession. Numerically expressed scales are also included.
