This is overall an okay tuner. It does well for the price, but here is what I didn't like:

The worst issue for me (as a piano tuner) is that this device, even with a great external mic connected, does not have a good 88-key range as it guaranteed. I really have to tune by ear for the last entire octave on the high and low ends without the mic, and it isn't much better with the one. The good news is that the entire mid range is a lot more accurate with the mic than without.

2nd issue: It has some issues tuning in a room with any other noise at all. I live in a house with a well pump, and while my piano is five times louder than the well pump, it gets severely distracted by it to the point that I can't tune with it. So I can't tune my piano without stopping for the well pump every 10-20 minutes. I have used a Yamaha strobe tuner that can keep focus in a room with someone stringing a piano, tuning, machines running, etc...

The other issue I have is not something that Peterson said it c ...

Good product works well and does many things. Mainly I just use it as an acoustic guitar tuner and as a metronome. The STROBOPLUS HD I purchased in 2015 and the product still works perfectly. One of the sturdiest and best designed products I've ever seen.

I use my tuner on my workbench to tune my bass guitars and my friend's guitars.
I consider it an excellent product!

I love how accurate the tuning is and how sweet it makes an acoustic guitar. I had problems with the StroboPLUS HD connecting with Peterson Connect, but the support staff (Chris) was amazing. He problem solved step by step and never gave up on trying to solve the problem. After quite a few tickets he was able to fix the issue. I am so happy with his help and he even helped me with moving between user and factory settings ( hold mode and power and toggle between USR and FDR, reverse to go back). 5 stars to Chris alone. I can't wait to see how the sweetner setting will go on my Fender Rhodes.

I m at first a bass-player and use the StroboPLUS HD for tuning my Dingwall Le Sklar signature Bass. This one can be detuned to Low A. The StroboPlus HD shows exactly the Low A Note. For adjusting the D-Tuner at the bass the StroboPlus HD is excellently suited tool.
At second I use the StroboPlus HD for my Pedal Steel Guitar. For practising the inbuild metronome is a top of the notch.
After 6 years of use the round dialing knob had a problem at his surface.

I contacted the support of Peterson. They immediately responded and send me a new dialing knob for free to my adress in Germany.
And they contacted me in German language.
Outstanding support I have to say. Thanks you for that.
All in All: highly recommended

A BIG step up from the common guitar and instruments tuners, and a very good modelization of the desktop mechanical strobe tuner.
The Connect feature is very useful, but it has a few quirks that are not clearly documented. Like, when you add your very first sweetener, it removes all sweeteners that are already in the tuner's memory from the factory reset! It's OK because you can then pick and load those that you really need from your custom library and easily manage the pre-sets from the computer too. Also, when you make a minor change to one of the tunings or pre-set, it's not obvious how you re-sync your tuner with the configuration on your computer. Other than that, a great device. I added my own tunings for a few instruments that were not there, namely the Irish bouzouki (GDAD) and Persian santur with the G-minor scale. For the latter we can easily get any subtle variation for "half-flat" notes if required.

People who complain about the tuner on the various blogs or on YouTube us ...
