It’s the first pedal on your pedalboard and probably the most crucial to get right, depending on what your priorities are at least. Peterson Strobe Tuners have led the way for over 70 years, and now they present their StroboStomp HD; what they are calling the ultimate pedal tuner…
When under stage light or playing outside, how many of you guitarists are left squinting trying to make out your tuner’s display? The StroboStomp HD features the largest tuning display Peterson have ever used on a tuner pedal, eliminating this problem. You can personalise the tuner with the user-selectable colours, and then assign them to presets. This gives you the utmost confidence in your tuning when on stage.
Tone aficionados will enjoy the true-bypass operation. Peterson have endeavoured to remove the “pop” sound of the footswitch, using timed relays to drain the current when toggling the pedal on and off. Another impressive feature is the buffered output operation mode. This will boost your instrument’s drive to tackle signal loss in longer cable runs or packed pedalboards.
Exclusive to Peterson products, Sweetened Tunings enhances the accuracy of tuning certain instruments. A Sweetener preset is a set of cent offsets or a deviation from generic Equal Temperament interval spacing traditionally used in tuning. In other words, several presets with differing interval spacing relevant to the instrument being tuned.
The new “Guided Tunings” mode allows the StroboStomp HD to display numeric string values instead of traditional note names. This makes for sure-fire intuitive and rapid re-tuning to any number of open and alternative tunings. Not only, great for beginners wanting to experiment with alternative tunings, but also for experienced players rapidly changing tunings in quick succession.
The Peterson StroboStomp HD is designed to maximise on display size whilst maintaining a pedalboard-friendly size. Its lightweight, sturdy aluminium chassis serves as a robust yet light addition to your board.
