The Planet Waves SOS Strobe Pick Tuner uses Planet Wave’s revolutionary Strobe-On-String technology.
If you’ve set a turntable’s pitch via a stroboscopic control or use harmonic comparative tuning at multiple fret points to tune a guitar,
you will immediately get the concept. Barely bigger than a guitar pick, the Planet Waves SOS Strobe Pick Tuner emits 2 out-of-phase LED light beams onto the vibrating string.
The 2 beams dance on the string when it’s out of tune, slow down as you approach pitch, and stop when you’re in tune.
A thumbwheel selects the correct LED output for each string, making the Planet Waves SOS Strobe Pick Tuner specific to 6-string guitars.
Since it relies strictly on visuals, the Planet Waves SOS Strobe Pick Tuner is ideal for noisy and dim situations. NOTE: The Planet Waves SOS Strobe Tuner only works with 6-string guitars in standard tuning.
The tuner’s lights may be difficult to see on some clear nylon classical guitar treble strings.
