For over 75 years, Peterson has been trusted by some of the biggest names on stage and in the studio as the standard in tuning precision. The StroboStomp Mini™ delivers the unmatched 0.1 cent tuning accuracy of all authentic Peterson Strobe Tuners in a mini pedal tuner format. Featuring a high-definition LCD strobe display with variable LED color backlight, your instruments will never sound more in tune. A pop-less true bypass mode and a buffered output mode place you in command of your precious tone without compromise. With over 80 exclusive Sweetened Tunings® and Guided Tunings on-board, you'll be able to dial in your sound and tune like the pros!

We designed StroboStomp Mini around the most requested features from our customers: a mini form factor, and top mounted jacks. We felt there could be no concessions in StroboStomp Mini. Users will find everything they love about StroboStomp HD in StroboStomp Mini, pop-less true bypass, pure buffer, always-on Monitor Mode, transposition, adjustable concert A reference, as well as a few new features like Power Up Mute State not yet available on StroboStomp HD. As with all our tuners, StroboStomp Mini adheres to our 0.1 cents standard of tuning accuracy. StroboStomp Mini is everything you need in a pedal tuner; shrunk down to less than half the size of StroboStomp HD.

Mini Pedal Form Factor | Peterson Strobe Tuners

Mini Pedal Form Factor

Size matters. StroboStomp Mini includes all the fantastic tuning power you have come to love, in a teeny tiny living space.

With its HD display, StroboStomp Mini is accurate to 1/10th of 1 cent, includes over 80 Sweetened and Guided Tunings, has adjustable Concert A Reference from 390Hz - 490Hz, and includes Transposition settings from -5 - +6 half steps.

Top Mounted Jacks | Peterson Strobe Tuners

Top Mounted Jacks

You asked. We listened.

We take customer feedback seriously. Our most requested feature is top mounted jacks. StroboStomp Mini utilizes top mounted jacks to make its small footprint even more useful. StroboStomp Mini will fit on even the most crowded pedalboard.

The LCD display on the StroboStomp Mini is easy to see in bright lighting conditions but the LED backlight color is user-adjustable to suit your particular viewing preference.

Globally change the display color for all functions or choose to associate colors with specific tunings for easy and quick identification at the gig.

Pure Buffer Mode Operation | Peterson Strobe Tuners

Pure Buffer Mode Operation

Does your love for effect-driven musical chaos require a massive pedal board? Need that XL cable for jumping off the stack during your face melting solo?

No problem.

The StroboStomp Mini features a PURE buffer mode to preserve the sonic clarity of your axe while enabling you to run a collection of pedals and long cable lengths without compromise.

100% Pop-less True Bypass | Peterson Strobe Tuners

100% Pop-less True Bypass

We've redesigned and greatly improved the way incoming signal was handled in true-bypass mode to deliver a perfectly silent experience when muting your signal.

A dual relay circuit effectively bleeds out any incoming signal before powering the tuner down resulting in a silent transition without affecting tone quality.

Always-on Monitor Mode | Peterson Strobe Tuners

Always-on Monitor Mode

Want to see your tuning without having to mute? Need to check your intonation on the fly on fretless? With our Always-on Monitor Mode you can do just that.

Monitor Mode allows you to see the Tune Screen at all times, without needing to mute the signal. It also engages our buffer to combat tone-sucking of long cable runs. Of course, you can still mute your signal in Monitor Mode to tune silently.

Can We Go Outside and Play Now? | Peterson Strobe Tuners

Can We Go Outside and Play Now?

The multi-color display on the StroboStomp Mini is easy to see - even in direct sunlight!

The strobe image and note name appear monochromatic in direct sunlight making it very easy to view what is going on with your tuning when playing outdoors.

My setups are way better and accurate now that I'm using the Strobo Stomp. Also I'm teaching myself fretless bass so it's helping to tighten up my finger intonation. Best tuner I've ever owned!

By far the easiest & most accurate Tuner Pedal I’ve used. Basic operation couldn’t be simpler, but already the added options have proved themselves invaluable.

This tuner is absolutely AMAZING!!! I was one of those guitar players that swore by Boss pedals of all kinds since the late 80’s / early 90’s. I had the Boss TU-3 for a while and it was ok. Then I watched an interview with the guys from Chevelle and Pete was talking about this thing called a Peterson Strobe tuner and I immediately starting looking into it. Well, after reading reviews and watching some product reviews, I pulled the trigger and bought one from Amazon. Well, lets just keep it like this, I will NEVER use another tuner for my guitars again. Peterson tuners are the best tuners on the market. More accurate than anything else out there and all the things it can do are too many to list here. But I can assure you that if you buy one, you WILL NOT be disappointed. I’m with Peterson for LIFE!!!!

Does my StroboStomp Mini require calibration?

Generally, your StroboStomp Mini 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.

  • CIOKS DC7
  • CIOKS 8
  • Fender Engine Room LVL8
  • Fender Engine Room LVL12

What power supplies can be used with my Peterson Pedal Tuner? ( StroboStomp 1 & 2, Stomp Classic & StroboStomp HD/LE/Mini )

9VDC - Regulated - Center negative - At least 85mA

Partial list of regulated power supplies:

  • Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 (Eight isolated 9VDC 100mA regulated outputs)
  • Dunlop DCB-10 DC Brick (10 outputs)
  • Visual Sound 1-Spot (9V fully regulated output)
  • Carl Martin Big John 9v Power Supply (Seven 9VDC outputs 600mA total)
  • Sanyo Pedal Juice
  • T-Rex Fuel Tank
  • Godlyke PA9 Power All (9V 800mA regulated output)
  • Boss PSA120 adapter (9V 200mA regulated)
DO NOT use the Boss ACA120 Unregulated power supply! Boss ACA, Danelectro DA1, RadioShack, etc., do not have a voltage regulator and are not suitable.

As always with any pedal, be careful - check voltage ( 9V regulated ) & polarity (positive barrel-negative inner sleeve) first and don't overload the power supply's ampere rating by daisy chaining too many pedals from a single supply.

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 precise. They require very fine 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.

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.
