GOT BASS CHOPS? | Peterson Strobe Tuners

GOT BASS CHOPS?

With rock-solid tracking down to 16Hz, tuning that low B will never be a problem.

There is no more need for 12th fret tuning to get low notes to register or trying to decipher an erratic tuning display.

The StroboClip HD will always deliver a smooth tuning response and convey even the most minute changes in pitch in real-time allowing users to get in tune faster using the highest resolution in tuning accuracy.

Awesome tuner - accurate and easy to use. It has more functions than I need but some that will make players of a variety of string instruments ecstatic. Only two issues: 1) The bolt/nut holding the tuner unit onto its clip mount tends to loosen and come apart. I've had the units fall apart during performances and they are no longer usable until repaired. Two of the four clip strobes I use (two older models) we're unusable for some time without jerryrigged fixes because the bolts/nuts are not easily replaced through hardware stores; 2) Peterson would not provide me the bolt/nut specs without first registering my units, two of which I had purchased some years earlier. I ended up working through the retailer who sold me the units to get replacement bolts/nuts. Never did receive the specs so I can replace them myself in the future but so it goes. All four units are working. Note that the tuner units themselves have never had an issue - they work flawlessly. It's just in the design of the a ...

My guitars finally sound the way they should after tuning them with the Stroboclip HD. Best tuner I've ever used. I've been playing for over 50 years and my advice would be to pay more for this tuner instead of wasting your money on a bunch of cheap ones.

Another clip on tuner...blah, blah, blah... How much better could it actually be?

Uh, wait a minute. Sweetened tunings for mandolin, acoustic and 12 string guitars? Wait a minute. This ain't your cheap clip on. This is for reals.

Worth the price for the 12 string sweetened alone. Made my Martin sing like never before. I have now owned 4 of these. One I stepped on, one got stolen, and now I have one and a backup on tour with me.

If you're not used to the strobe tuning - get used to it and you will be much happier and more in tune with this clip on.

I just love Peterson products and user support! I play guitar professionally and depend on professional equipment and service. Peterson is the only tuners which the display can be read in direct sunlight, which i depend on, since I have a lot of outdoor gigs. I have their app, 3 stroboclips, one pedalsteel tuner and 2 stomp box tuners from them. I LOVE their sweeteners, and have several instruments with buzz feiten tuning, where peterson tuners is a must. Since I use my equipment extensively, sometimes i need spare parts. And every time they have answered promptly, and sent me for free (I live in Norway, so cred to them for sending). Just a big tnx from me to Peterson, and your professional amazing stuff you make!

Great little tuner, I really like that I can easily configure my fav tunings and also update firmware.

I had an issue where the little screw and nut came loose and I lost the nut. I opened a support ticket and a few days later I received a replacement part. Fantastic to find a vendor that is so focussed on customer service!

Highly recommended - a high quality product and high quality customer service.

I have had this tuner for several years now and not a single until today when the tiny nut fell off. I called the number on the website, got a human being immediately and was transferred to an extension that went to voicemail. I left a voicemail and within minutes I got a call back. I told Sue I lost the nut and she was quick to tell me that it wasn't a problem and got my address.

The tuner itself is awesome and incredibly accurate. It has been easy to use and totally reliable for a few years and I have no doubt it will keep on going strong.

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.

Peterson Connect does not detect my StroboClip HD in Linux environment.

Chrome needs access to /dev/hidraw*, so either set "chmod a+rw /dev/hidraw*" or start chrome as root with the --no-sandbox option

*Some Ubuntu based distros do not allow running Chrome as root with the --no-sandbox option enabled. -Running as root without --no-sandbox is not supported. See https://crbug.com/638180. You can however run Chromium as a normal user and invoke that option.

Some users have reprted a fix by adding a new udev rule as follows: KERNEL=="hidraw*", SUBSYSTEM=="hidraw", MODE="0664", GROUP="plugdev", ATTRS{idVendor}=="2368", ATTRS{idProduct}=="*SEE BELOW"

* Some Peterson products operate in two different modes with individual product id's for firmware update operations. Multiple rules may need to be created. Here is the list of Peterson USB product ID's

idProduct =

Stomp Classic = 8002
StroboPLUS HD = 0003

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.

What is my StroboClip HD’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 StroboClip HD, 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 StroboClip HD offers 50 unique and very accurate “tweaks” which often make all the difference, try it!

Does my tuner require calibration?

Generally, your tuner will not require calibration and should remain perfectly accurate if it has not been damaged.

Unlike more modern Peterson strobes, legacy models such as the Peterson 400, 420, 450 and 700 do require occasional calibration.

If you require service, please open a support ticket and return the tuner for repair.
