Pete Townshend, principal songwriter and guitarist for the legendary Who, creator of such classic rock songs such as My Generation, I Can See For Miles, Pinball Wizard, Won't Get Fooled Again, Baba O'Riley and many others, is one of the main pillars of rock guitar.

His songs, peppered with memorable riffs and power chords, have inspired multiple generations of bands and guitarists from the 1960s to the present day. One of the first with his own home studio from the very earliest days, his combinations of loops, keyboard sequences and live guitar were among the very first in mainstream rock music, both live and on recordings.

Such classic rock anthems are often an amalgam of on-the-spot inspiration and carefully crafted sound textures, requiring great attention to detail. It should come as no surprise, therefore, that Pete Townshend's guitars have always been tuned with a strobe tuner.

The Who's studio and stage productions have included multiple and various models of Peterson & Conn Strobotuners of all vintages from the 1960s to the present day.
