When it was first introduced in 2010, the original TC Electronic PolyTune revolutionised the way musicians tune their instruments. Praised by professional and amateur players alike, PolyTune made guitar tuning as simple as Strum – Tune – Rock! So how do you make the world’s best-selling polyphonic tuner even better? For a second time? Simple. You make it do more.
Whilst retaining popular features, such as multiple tuning modes – including polyphonic, chromatic, ultra-precise strobe mode and alternate tunings – we’ve added one key new feature: a buffer. But not just any buffer. By incorporating our acclaimed BonaFide Buffer into PolyTune 3 we ensure that your signal – and therefore your tone – remains pristinely preserved over long cable runs and complex pedal setups. By gathering two of our most powerful technologies into one pedal, we guarantee that PolyTune 3 is a force to be reckoned with.
- Ultra-compact polyphonic tuner gives you fast, accurate tuning and a high-quality tone tool in a single unit
- Quickly get in tune with polyphonic, chromatic and strobe tuning modes
- Built-in all-analog BONAFIDE BUFFER circuitry preserves your tone through long cable runs and convoluted pedal boards
- Polyphonic tuning lets you tune all your strings at once
- Lightning-fast chromatic tuner offers 0.5 cent accuracy
- Ultra-precise strobe tuner gives you ±0.02 cent accuracy for ultimate tuning performance
- Exceptional buffer keeps your tone transparent and crisp with a 1 MΩ input, 100 Ω output and extremely high >112 dB signal to noise ratio
- Switchable true bypass / buffer modes let you optimise signal integrity for any setup
- “Always on” tuning mode keeps tuner on and detecting even when not muted
- Super-bright 109-LED display and an ambient light detector provide an instant clear readout in all viewing condition
- Automatically switches between polyphonic and monophonic tuning modes based on how many strings you play
- 3-Year Warranty Program*
- Designed and engineered in Denmark
Tuning Magnet: The tuner magnet feature slows down the needle once you get close to the desired pitch, delivering a quick and easy tuning experience – any time, every time.
Chromatic Champ: Besides the polyphonic tuner, PolyTune has a chromatic tuner that can hang with the best tuning technology out there, with an amazing 0.5 cent accuracy.
PolyTune: Strum – Tune – Rock!: Our original PolyTune was the world’s first polyphonic tuner – a revolutionary game-changer, allowing instant checking of all six strings simultaneously and tuning up on the fly. Now, with PolyTune 3’s always on mode, instant just got a whole lot faster.
Brighter Than a Thousand Suns: PolyTune 3’s retina scorching 109-LED display is spectacular in dark environments. Playing an open-air festival on a sunny day? No problem. The built-in ambient light detector ensures that the brightness is always spot-on, regardless of the lighting conditions.
Full Strobe Ahead: The strobe tuner in PolyTune 3 is super accurate and super fast. Finetune your instruments with surgical precision at blinding speeds. Sounds good, right? We’re talking 0.1 cent tuning accuracy and in case you don’t really know what that means – believe us there are atomic clocks that’d kill for that accuracy.
Total Recall: PolyTune 3 stores your preferences. From pitch reference to tuning mode, it hangs on to this information even after it is powered down, meaning that you can set and forget.
Not Just Any Old Buffer: PolyTune 3 features our proprietary BonaFide Buffer. A high-quality analog buffer, which combats tone-suck when using long cable runs or complex pedal setups. Since a buffer is usually placed at the beginning of the signal chain, just like your tuner, we figured it was a no-brainer to combine the two into a single compact package.
True Buffer or True Bypass – You Decide: PolyTune 3 lets you decide between buffered-bypass mode, or our tried and trusted True Bypass concept, for silent tuning and maximum signal-preserving clarity. In buffered mode, an additional always-on operation is available. The flick of a switch is all it takes.
MonoPoly: MonoPoly instantly recognises whether you play one or several strings and replies with the appropriate polyphonic or monophonic tuning mode.
