Peterson StroboClip HD – Review
Peterson have long been producing well-made and accurate tuners
for many years and the new StroboClip
HD (SC-HD) is no exception.
Following on from the design of the original Stroboclip
this one is housed within a sleek black housing with rounded
edges. The high contrast display has black graphics with a
light orange background to make it easy to see in most scenarios.
Technically the SC-HD has the same 0.1% accuracy as all other
Peterson Strobe Tuners. Around 50 Sweetened tunings are offered
to improve the sound of your favourite guitar, bass, ukulele
or many other stringed instruments. Drop Tuning and Capo Settings
are also available. For those unfamiliar with the product
Sweetened tunings are tuning offsets that make your instruments
sound more in tune with themselves.
The soft rubber clamps firmly onto your instruments headstock
which Peterson say will not damage the finish. I certainly
have had no issues with the SC-HD or its predecessor although
I only leave the tuner on the headstock whilst tuning especially
on nitro cellulose based instruments.
I tried the SC-HD on various instruments to include several
electric guitars, a ukulele and 4 and 5 string basses and
no problems where encountered, accurate tuning was achieved
and the display was easy to read.
