Spin the Strobe

The Planet Waves Tru-Strobe Tuner is the first compact actual strobe tuner on the market. Geared towards techs, luthiers and discriminating musicians, the Tru Strobe is accurate to .001 cents. With an easy-to-read dial, built-in microphone for tuning acoustic instruments and an auto shut-off to preserve battery life, this shiny black beauty is also a bit on the hefty side (which keeps it from being pulled off my workbench by the weight of a guitar cable). Nice.

The dazzling blue LED readout lets you focus in your tuning and is easy to read on dark stages.
