When it comes to musical equipment, one of the most discerning musicians is guitarist David Gilmour. His writing and playing with legendary rockers Pink Floyd and his solo work include some of the most evocative music of our time.

As far back as the early 1970s, Mr. Gilmour and his band colleagues used a strobe tuner consistently. In fact, according to David Gilmour's long-time technical assistant Phil Taylor, before a massive 1974 concert in Earls Court around the time of the Dark Side of the Moon album, it was discovered that someone had forgotten to bring their ST8 Strobotuner. This precipitated a mad dash across London during rush-hour back to Britannia Row to retrieve it for the gig. Ever since, there has been no Pink Floyd or David Gilmour solo concert which didn't have one or more Peterson strobe tuners doing tuning duty on electric and acoustic guitars, his use of steel guitar also necessitates altered tempered tuning made easy with a Peterson.

David Gilmour's pursuit of musical excellence and sonic quality makes his choice of tuner very important. At Peterson, we are very humbled to count him among our users from the 1970s to the present day.

AutoStrobe 490

$759.00 - $779.00

The Peterson AutoStrobe 490 is agreed by music students, technicians, and professionals to be the standard by which all tuners are measured. Only Peterson could bring you the kind of real- time intonation critical enough for ear training use. Enjoy hands-free note selection for fast, accurate tuning of instruments. Other companies may boast of their strobe tuner capabilities, but buyer beware! The AutoStrobe 490 is a truly stroboscopic mechanical tuner capable of fundamental and overtone display. Key features include mutable throughputs for in-line (yet silent) tuning during performances, automatic image clarity and contrast control which internally compensate for optimal viewing over a wide range of source pitch and volume, improved clarity for upper and lower register notes (our +2/-1 display feature shifts the strobe patterns into more visible middle ranges so that bass note patterns can be displayed two octaves higher and treble note patterns can be displayed one octave lower in strobe display), and easy transposition (strobe patterns appear at the correct note for Bb, F, and Eb instruments).
