TC Electronic UniTune Clip Clip-on Chromatic Tuner

Gearank Recommendation

The UniTune Clip appeared on our recommended list for Clip On Tuners from November 2019 until November 2020.


The UniTune is a streamlined version of TC Electronic's popular Polytune clip, carrying over the same overall look and LED matrix display.

It drops the multi-note polyphonic tuning feature and maintains the more basic chromatic tuner function.

Still, it does have a strobe tuning function for more precise tuning, with an accuracy of ±0.02 cent.

Other cool features of this tuner include an internal memory for storing settings, the ability to use a reference pitch, and it has an adaptive screen that switches the orientation automatically for left and right handed players.

If you're looking for a fast and efficient clip-on tuner with good display and allows for strobe tuning accuracy, then check out the TC Electronic UniTune clip.

What is going on with these

What is going on with these two accuracy specs- .05cents versus .02 cents? do we have to fumble with a switch to go back and forth? my interest is in having it read any chromatic note I play, as being in tune, to the best accuracy- Apparently in one mode, I have less accuracy? or no chromatic scale tracking? ???????
