Getting Started / Basic Use
Your new StroboStomp Mini pedal tuner may be powered by a regulated 9V DC power supply or via the USB-C connection on the top of the tuner.
WARNING: USING A WALL TRANSFORMER WITH THE INCORRECT POLARITY OR VOLTAGE MAY CAUSE PERMANENT DAMAGE TO THE TUNER!
For normal operation, the tuner can be used out of the box; no special adjustment is needed. After connecting a regulated 9V DC power supply, or powered USB-C cable, simply activate the StroboStomp Mini by inserting an instrument cable into the input jack of the tuner located on the right side of the top of the tuner. The output jack located on the left side of the top of the tuner can be used to connect the tuner to the input of an amplifier or another effects pedal. Use the Stomp Foot-Switch to mute the instrument’s signal and proceed to tune. When finished, use the Stomp Switch to unmute the signal and return to playing. When muted, a speaker icon with a slash will appear in the upper-left of the display to indicate the muted state.
If no mute icon is visible, the tuner is un-muted and signal will be present.
The note being tuned appears in the center portion of the screen. The strobe bands scroll counter-clockwise ( down ) if your instrument is flat of the displayed note, and clockwise ( up ) if your instrument is sharp of the displayed note. When the image is stabilized or “caged”, your instrument is in tune to 0.1 cent accuracy (1/10th of one cent) of the displayed note.
If you are new to strobe tuners, you will notice that they are much more sensitive and accurate than your previous tuners. It’s OK if the strobe image doesn’t completely stop. It may shift slightly due to the ‘real-time’ feedback of a strobe tuner. For stringed instruments, it helps to use your finger or thumb to gently pluck the string instead of a plectrum.
