TC Electronic seriously upped the ante for clip-on tuners when they engineered an updated version of their PolyTune technology into a headstock tuner to create the PolyTune Clip. Many of us here at Music Experience have searched for the perfect tuner — one that combines the power of a rackmount or pedal-style unit with the convenience of a clip-on — and the PolyTune Clip is among the best we've found. It delivers the speed of polyphonic tuning and greater monophonic accuracy than any PolyTune model that's come before it. Whether you're camping in the middle of nowhere, or just want to pull one more pedal out of your signal chain, the TC Electronic PolyTune Clip definitely deserves your attention.
TC Electronic's obsession with building the ultimate polyphonic tuner into a clip-on model is abundantly clear in the PolyTune Clip, a product of two years of extensive research and engineering. Everything involved with the PolyTune Clip was custom built or improved upon, down to the custom resin enclosure and redesigned electronics that run on about 4% of the power of the original. At the same time, the PolyTune Clip's readout is the same totally intuitive LED matrix that lets you move quickly from string to string. With just a couple of strums and a few tuning machine twists, you'll be 99% of the way there.
When you really want to hone in on an individual string, the PolyTune Clip's MonoPoly function makes it simple. There's no need to fumble around with your PolyTune Clip — MonoPoly automatically detects if you're playing one string or strumming, and it switches modes for you. Choose from a traditional chromatic mode or a very cool stroboscopic mode for single-string tuning. The chromatic mode features a magnetic needle, which slows down as you get closer to pitch, and +/- 0.5-cent accuracy. And if you need even greater accuracy, the +/- 0.02-cent sensitivity of the PolyTune Clip's redesigned strobe mode should satisfy your needs. It can even handle the low B string of your 5-string bass!
Despite its scaled-down format, TC Electronic managed to pack 105 ultra-bright LEDs into the PolyTune Clip's display — only two fewer than the PolyTune Mini! That means you get the same flexible display as you'd get from one of the PolyTune 2 pedals with zero compromises. What's more, the PolyTune Clip's adaptive display can sense its orientation, so the display is always facing the right way, no matter where you clip it. Whether you're right or left handed, or if you prefer your clip on the front or back of your headstock, your PolyTune Clip will always be easy to read and ready to use.
Sporting ultra-precise strobe, chromatic and polyphonic modes, the PolyTune Clip is the reigning champion and resident black belt of all things tuning. Fittingly, we've awarded this tiny headstock ninja the highest of all honors - the fabled black coating! PolyTune Clip's discreet design provides stealthy tune-ups - on stage or in the studio - so you're back to perfect pitch before anyone even notices you're drifting. With the PolyTune Clip your performance will be legendary!
PolyTune Clip is designed to be your trusty tuning companion, whether you're going for a quick onstage tune-up or an ultra-precise setup of your instrument. PolyTune Clip sports three distinct tuning modes ranging from the game-changing polyphonic tuning mode that lets you tune all 6 strings at once, to your trusty chromatic tuner and all the way to an ultra-precise strobe tuner mode, which offers +/-0.02 cents of tuning precision. No matter what method you choose to use, the tuning trinity of PolyTune Clip will always guide you to pitch perfection.
Developed with a luthier-like attention to detail, PolyTune Clip is the perfect combination of beauty and brains. With its carefully chosen high-quality components and stunning clean looks, PolyTune Clip is designed to complement you and your instrument, while containing the most advanced tuning technology to date. Through a massive engineering feat we managed to condense our proprietary PolyTune algorithm, shrink key components and increase battery life all while creating a tuner more powerful than any PolyTune released before it. The new tuning standard has just been defined and its name is PolyTune Clip!
As musicians we are all different. We play different instruments in different styles on different stages around the world, which is why it's a shame that all clip-on tuners are so set in their ways… until now! With its adaptive display, PolyTune Clip is designed to be in tune with you and your needs by automatically switching between polyphonic and chromatic tuning modes. By adjusting to however you want to use it; left handed, right handed, horizontally, vertically, electric, acoustic, guitar or bass; PolyTune Clip's got your back!
