StroboClip from Peterson Strobe Tuners

Peterson Strobe Tuners has packaged the unique features from its other popular products into a clip-on tuner called the StroboClip, available to suit different instruments.

“It’s the most accurate form of electronic tuning,” says John Norris, Peterson sales manager. “Using your eye is the best way to assist your ear when you can’t use it—in a situation where you can’t hear yourself, such as a band. It reacts the instant you play.”

The StroboClip includes specific “Sweeteners,” or temperaments, to suit many different instruments, allowing instruments to be tuned to the 1/10 percent accuracy boasted by all Peterson tuners.

“The one thing that really disqualifies any band is when they play out of tune,” Norris says. “This tuner is very affordable and just as accurate as our bigger tuners. The band would be tightened up considerably if you have instruments tuned to that kind of accuracy.”

The display on the StroboClip has been redesigned to allow easy viewing in all lighting situations. The tuner itself is encased in brushed aluminum to withstand road situations and comes with a metal carrying case.

The clip-on part uses soft rubber pads to protect the instrument.

Within a month, Peterson will also debut the BodyBeat Sync, a wireless pulsating metronome that can be synced up to allow a director to control the metronomes of an entire band.
