TC Electronic received awards for its for the groundbreaking PolyTune polychromatic guitar and bass tuner pedal and its industry standard signal processing unit, System 6000 MKII. PolyTune won in the Ancillary Equipment category, and System 6000 MKII was voted the winner of the Signal Processing Technology/Hardware category.
PolyTune is the first tuner in the world to offer polyphonic tuning which means that guitarists and bassists can tune up extremely fast by simply strumming all strings simultaneously, letting them get back to playing in no time. The pedal received high marks for MusicGearReview in our hands-on review.
