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 HDC 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.

Using the Peterson StorboClip HDC, I redid my setups on my guitars.
They haven't sounded this good for a long time.
Checked them with my Korg strobe and everything was right on.
It's a great tuner and easy to use.
Ialso left a couple reviews on YouTube review videos.

So far so good. I just purchased this tuner but as I said, so far so good. I have already made use of the presets available. I play acoustic and electric guitar and bass guitar. The unit is very intuitive to use.

what amazing customer service (John Norris)
John took me through all the options, pros and cons with patience and professionalism

Not easy for him as I have complex requirements (guitar, acoustic, dobro, PSG)

Ended up with clip for convenience and a stomp for main

Great products backed uk really well

Out of warranty user damage issue also sorted out very sympathetically.

Does my StroboClip HDC require calibration?

Generally, your StroboClip HDC 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.

How long do I need to charge my StroboClip HDC if the battery dies?

Your StroboClip HDC will give roughly 5 minutes of tuning time after a 1 minute charge.

10 minutes of charging will give roughly 1.5 hours of tuning time.

45 minutes of charging should fully charge the StroboClip HDC and allow up to 6 hours of tuning time.

What is the battery life of StroboClip HDC?

The StroboClip HDC should operate for roughly 6 hours of tuning time, dependent upon color choice and brightness.

The colors red, green, and blue use only one LED driver and therefore require less power allowing for longer use before depleting the battery.

White uses all three LED drivers at full power, using the most amount of battery power and will reduce the amount of tuning time available.

Brightness values will also affect the battery life. Brightness may be set via the Configuration Tool in Peterson Connect.

No, the battery on the StroboClip HDC is not removable.


There are no user serviceable parts inside the StroboClip HDC.

My StroboClip HDC is charged but will not turn on. What do I do?

If your StroboClip HDC is non responsive to the Power/m\Menu Button, and it is confirmed that the battery is charged, please use the Reset Button located on the rear of the tuner.

To activate the Reset Button, insert a pin or straightened paper clip into the hole in the back of the tuner. You will feel a slight depression and click of the Reset Button. Hold the Reset Button in the depressed state for 3 seconds then release.

Your Power/Menu Button should now function normally.
