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.

Exceptional clip on tuner. Top of the line in my opinion. I bought this one because I do my own intonation and the other manufacturers don’t guarantee their quality in that area. Peterson is heads above the others and truly back up their products. I’m a customer for life. I don’t need another tuner. Just one that works when I need it to work. Thank you Peterson for producing a great product that I can count on. Like on stage, when there’s no time to mess with tuning. You guys rock!

Phenomenal tuner! Easy to use and TONS of built in options. Easily 3x the price of the regular headstock tuners but the Strobe Clip HD offers FAR superior accuracy and real time measurement. I'm sold! I'll never buy another brand again.

Does my StroboClip HD require calibration?

Generally, your StroboClip HD 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 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.

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
StroboPLUS HD Firmware Mode = 8003
StroboClip HD = 8004
StroboStomp HD = 8005
StroboPLUS HDC = 0006
StroboPLUS HDC Firmware Mode = 8006

If there is trouble connecting or reconnecting as a product is switching modes, ex: StroboPLUS HDC product id 0006 to StroboPLUS HDC Firmware Mode 8006 run the command:

"sudo chmod a+rw /dev/hidraw*"

This command will solve any "waiting on user input" or if the update button in Peterson Connect is unresponsive. The command may need to be executed more than once.
