    The new Polytune 2 tuner

    Going to be bringing in my first gen Polytune to work to use with my guitar at work.
    Just bought the new Polytune 2 from Amazon to use at home.
    It is brighter, and also has a strobe feature.

    I liked my first one, only complaint I had about it was it was not quite bright enough if my living room was filled with sun from having the blinds open.
    Contrary to popular belief, we do get sun here in Western Washington, it does not rain all the time.

    Anyone else have the newer Polytune 2?

    Looks like a great product!

    I wonder if it matters that I already have three tuners...
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    Probably not Les, I also have a Peterson Strobo Stomp that my SG sales guy at Guitar Center talked me into buying two Mays ago.
    Expensive and not as easy to use as the Polytunes.

    I've had mine for about a month now....and I LOVE it. I had the original and the mini, and this one is noticeably better. Get one if you can!

    I have one of these as well. I don't use it too much because it's not my "live" tuner, so I use it at home. It works fantastic, though....has some really cool features and the LED is plenty bright. It seems to be more accurate than my Boss tuner.

    Yeah nothing but love for the PolyTune pedals. I've had the first one and the Mini. Still think to hold for Mini 2 if they ever make one.

    I have two of the Mini's... and Boss TU3's and "Guitar Tool Kit" Tuner on my IPHONE.

    The Polytune II addresses the only nock I have with the Polytune mini's - they are not as precise as the Boss or at least it's harder to interpret the display to get the guitar EXACTLY tuned. The new strobe mode on the Polytune II should fix that....Standing by for the MINI II :-)

    FWIW - the tuner on the IPHONE is the best tuner I own:

    Thanks for the heads up on this tuner. I have an original Polytune and like it quite a bit. I just ordered the new one a couple of minutes ago, and look forward to putting it through it's paces.

    You are welcome.

    When I picked up my new Micro Cube GX amp last week, my dealer had the original Polytune like I have, and the mini, but he did not know about this new one.
    Ordered mine off of Amazon, will be here next Tuesday.
    It said it was Amazon Prime (free two day shipping), but it is not shipping at that speed for some reason.
    I see Amazon do this with stuff sometimes for some reason.

    I forgot to post about my new one,
    I dig it, much brighter and easier to read than the 1st gen one.

    No TC products come with a manual though, and I have not figured out how to activate the strobe feature.
    It just does the normal two things my older one did.
    I may visit their site late to look at the manual.
    But I am very happy with the new one though.

    Hey, I think I will go play my 408 right now.
    I took the day off work today

    I have the mini and it has a small slide switch on the side to use the strobe option.it's fast and accurate but when i strum the strings together the low E does'nt register much.i thought it's a particular guitar so i changed to another and still the same.anyone experienced this also?
    Thx
