I first used this tuner while on a very noisy tour with heavy metal bands, which made it very difficult to tune the acoustic guitars used during a portion of the band I worked for's set. The combination of a Peterson tuner and the Pitch Grabber saved the day!

Works just great with my iPad Pro. Great customer service too. I’ve used an old model 570 for almost 40 years and it still works, but this makes the Strobesoft app a better and more accurate tuner then anything else I’ve used

This works great with my smart phone. I'm using an Android tuning app called "A Tuner" which is free and extremely accurate. This clip is durable and the cord is made in such a way that it won't crack or break like my old one did. I'm sure I'll get many years of use out of this. Very happy with it.

Excellent product, The PitchGrabber is so much more accurate than a conventional microphone.

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 my ’s Sweetened Tunings feature all about?

A Sweetener is a set of cent offsets or a deviation from generic Equal Temperament interval spacing traditionally used in tuning. Tuners made by Peterson, including the , contain many choices of “Sweetness“, in other words, several presets with differing interval spacing relevant to the instrument being tuned. If you’ve never been happy with how your instrument tunes up with your present tuner, a Sweetener could be just the thing to change that without any modifications whatsoever. The offers unique and very accurate “tweaks” which often make all the difference, try it!

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.
