The PolyTune 3 Mini manages to pack all the pedal-tuning and tone-preserving power of TC's full-sized PolyTune 3 into a miniature pedal format. The TC Electronic PolyTune 3 Mini is just as fast, dependable, and intuitive as ever, boasting accuracy within 0.02 cents and delivering a no-nonsense approach to guitar and instrument tuning. Strum all strings* to see which ones are out of tune at a glance, or tune up one string at a time. The PolyTune 3 Mini automatically switches between mono and poly modes based on the incoming signal. And thanks to its built-in, high-quality-analog BonaFide Buffer (switchable to true bypass), the PolyTune 3 Mini can even improve your tone over extended cable runs. This means you get a bite, presence, and transient response that's much closer to plugging directly into an amp. But that's not all that's cool in the TC PolyTune 3 Mini. Alternate tuning modes make it fast and easy to explore new ways to craft your art, even in the middle of a frantic set. And an improved auto-dimming, 109-LED display makes tuning more comfortable in any environment, indoors or out.

    BonaFide Buffer is an added value built right in

    TC managed to cram its award-winning BonaFide Buffer circuitry into the PolyTune 3 Mini's pedalboard-friendly compact housing. So now, the latest iteration of this beloved pedal actually improves your tone over long cable runs. Whereas true bypass pedals can start to rob the treble end of your signal, by placing the TC Electronic Polytune 3 Mini at the front of your board — its preferred position — your tone is as good as unfazed for another 50' or so of cable. Past PolyTunes have been hard to beat. But take it from Music Experience — thanks to its built-in BonaFide analog buffer, the PolyTune 3 Mini is well worth the upgrade. Picky about your signal path? PolyTune 3 Mini also includes a switchable true bypass option.

    Alternate tuning modes to stoke your creativity

    Alternate tunings are another performance-enhancing feature of the PolyTune 3 Mini. Now you can show off your open-tuned slide songs seamlessly in the middle of a set, or experiment with brilliant new acoustic voicings as you track in the studio.

      Tune all your strings at once

      The TC Electronic PolyTune 3 Mini spares your listeners the "E, A, D, G..." pre-show tuning ritual with its polyphonic tuning mode*. Here you can strum all strings at once, and PolyTune 3 Mini shows you at a glance which strings are out and which ones are okay. Attacking only the pitchy strings saves time tuning up and keeps shows running smoothly without interruptions. Still prefer traditional tuning? The TC PolyTune 3 Mini switches between mono and poly modes automatically.

      Choose strobe mode for up to ±0.02-cent accuracy

      Do you know how precise 0.02 cents is? It's 1/5,000th of a semitone — 1/5,000th the difference between an open E and a fretted F. The PolyTune 3 Mini delivers the kind of accuracy you need to double-track guitars in the studio or tune fretless instruments to the rest of your arrangement. Need speed over accuracy? The PolyTune 3 Mini's lightning-fast chromatic mode still gives you accuracy within half a cent.

      Auto-sensing LED display is easy to read on any stage

      Brighter, and more dynamic than ever, PolyTune 3 Mini's dazzling LED display makes tuning up in any environment a breeze. This flexible display is made up of over 100 ultra-bright LEDs that provide clear visibility even in broad daylight. And thanks to the onboard ambient light sensor, the PolyTune 3 Mini dims its display on dark stage floors so you don't scorch your retinas every time you look down at your board. This is just another way the PolyTune 3 Mini brings TC Electronic's spirit of innovation to your guitar rig.

        What TC Electronic Says...

        Carrying on the POLYTUNE legacy, POLYTUNE 3 MINI packs an unprecedented amount of tuning power into a tiny footprint without sacrificing essential features, such as always-on mode and our audiophile BONAFIDE BUFFER circuit for uncompromised tones – making it ideal for fully-loaded pedal boards where every inch counts!

        Tiny Tone Guardian

        Is your signal in desperate need of a strong buffer circuit to save your tonal integrity from a platoon of hungry true bypass pedals? POLYTUNE 3 MINI has you covered for any setup, and then some. Thanks to its built-in BONAFIDE BUFFER, which ensures zero signal degradation and an extremely high signal to noise ratio, POLYTUNE 3 MINI is the ultimate 2-for-1 pocket tool for pedalboards – keeping your tone robust and your pitch in place. Switch off the buffer, and you’re instantly back in true-bypass mode.

        No Rest for the Wickedly Out of Tune

        When you’re on stage rocking out, there’s just no time to stop and tune up, even if you’ve gone a bit overboard with the whammy bar. With POLYTUNE 3 MINI's always-on mode, you never have to miss a beat. Additionally, there are 2 very practical DIP switches mounted on the side of the pedal that make it easy to go from buffered bypass to true bypass, and from standard mode to always-on.

        LED the Sun Shine

        Whether you’re performing in direct sunlight, under a massive light rig or just planning to be the first live artist on the surface of the sun, the bright display on POLYTUNE 3 remains clear and readable. And with 109 powerful LED’s running at full blast, you won't have to search for the display – it will find you!
