Gearank Recommendation

The Polytune 2 Pedal appeared on our recommended list for Pedal Tuners from when we published the first edition in March 2017 until April 2019 when it was removed due to a lack of availability.

Overview

Pedalboard space is an ever dwindling resource for many guitarists, prompting many manufacturers to produce compact versions of their popular pedals. The TC Electronic Polytune 2 Mini is one such pedal, a compact version of the Polytune 2, with no battery power option.

Like its bigger sibling, this pedal allows for polyphonic (multi-note) tuning, in addition to conventional chromatic tuning. It also features a Stroboscopic mode that allows for even more tuning accuracy, down to ±0.1 cent.

Finally, this compact pedal comes with a smart LED display with ambient light sensor that automatically adjusts brightness.

It's no longer widely available in stores these days so a good alternative is the very highly rated Boss TU-3.
