GOT BASS CHOPS?

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

Certainly not the cheapest solution. I've never used a clip-on or strobe tuner. I've been using a Korg GT-12 and a LockOn Autotuner both of which were also not cheap. For years I was happy with the results from both tuners. They both agreed with each other and my guitar always sounded good. The first thing I did when I got the Stroboclip was tune using my old tuners and then used the new strobe. Two strings didn't need much correction but four strings were off. When I corrected them I couldn't believe the difference in sound. In order to make sure I wasn't just "willing" the more expensive tuner to sound better I had my wife sitting there when I did this. She has very acute hearing and said the difference was amazing. So the proof is, does it work better than other tuners? Yes. Is it worth the extra money? Along with the feature rich software and ability to upgrade the firmware (something I didn't expect), definitely Yes. Now let's make sure it keeps working that way.

The best tuner I have ever owned - not just the best clip on. Accurate and consistent, bright display and display moves and rotates in many directions. Why only 4 stars? I have the istrobosoft for my iPhone and one feature it has that I miss here is it shows how many cents you are off sharp or flat. I kinda miss that feature.

I lost the screw and nut for my Stroboclip HD. When contacting Peterson's support and asking for the dimension for the lost items, they offered to send them to me.

So now my tuner is back in service. One important fact to mentions is that I live in Germany. Believe you me, it is not easy so get any service from a company outside of Europe, so thumbs up for Peterson.

Thank you!

I bought two of these stroboclips because they were on sale, replacing an aging snark.
I use them on my 4 and 5 string, fretted and fretless bass guitars.
I find the tuning display un-intuitive and confusing. I usually tune the wrong way when there strange river of shapes is moving, so I often waste time. I've tried setting the intonation on my basses with it, but again, having to think which way is flat and which is sharp.
It would've been better to have some sign showing flat or sharp, as well as a cue that shows when the string is actually in tune.
Lucky for me I paid $25 a pop for these, had I paid full price I would have certainly returned the tuners, since the UI isn't doing it for me.
The tuner itself is robust, the display is bright, and it tracks low B strings well, the display choices by Peterson really ruin it for me, and often perplex fellow bandmates when they need to quickly borrow the tuner.

I own a few of these. I will never use another tuner. Why? Because not only are Peterson tuners the most accurate consumer-level tuners you can buy, but you won't find better customer service than Peterson. They stand behind every product they make, and if anything one wrong with it, they will take care of you.

Unit was supplied minus the battery compartment lid. I suspect due to UK Royal Mail postal carrier regulations, the battery was removed, and the cover was forgotten to be included in the package.

I opened an online support query, and the advisor was exemplary in his assistance. I am awaiting receipt of a replacement cover gratis

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

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.
