Sometimes More Really is More


When it was first introduced in 2010, the original PolyTune revolutionized the way musicians tune their instruments. Praised by professional and amateur players alike, PolyTune made guitar tuning as simple as Strum - Tune - Rock! So how do you make the world's best-selling polyphonic tuner even better? For a second time? Simple. You make it do more.



Whilst retaining popular features, such as multiple tuning modes - including polyphonic, chromatic, ultra-precise strobe mode and alternate tunings - we've added one key new feature: a buffer. But not just any buffer. By incorperating our acclaimed BonaFide Buffer into PolyTune 3 we ensure that your signal - and therefore your tone - remains pristinely preserved over long cable runs and complex pedal setups. By gathering two of our most powerful technologies into one pedal, we guarantee that PolyTune 3 is a force to be reckoned with.


• Built-in, high quality BonaFide Buffer

• Selectable True Bypass / True Buffer modes

• "Always On" tuning mode



PolyTune Pronto


Whether you're a mega rock star, a seasoned pro or a passionate bedroom shredder, PolyTune 3 gets you in tune quickly and accurately. Depending on your needs, you can choose polyphonic mode for tuning all strings at the same time for your live gig, chromatic mode for more precision during a songwriting session, and strobe mode for the ultimate in precision when you're laying down tracks.



Get Buffed!


PolyTune 3 includes the iconic Bonafide Buffer, our renowned guitar buffer that ensures zero signal degradation - no matter how long a cable you need to run! Think of it as a tuner on steroids that constantly protects your precious tone.




Tuning Turn-On



How do you want to tune? PolyTune 3 lets you switch between true bypass and buffer modes, the latter giving you an "always on" option that keeps the tuner in full operation - even when your signal is not muted. Tuning made simple and more efficient than ever.



All Lighting Scenarios


Whether you're performing on a truck bed in full sunlight, a dimly-lit tavern, or a stage with a massive light show, PolyTune 3's super-bright 109-LED display features an ambient light detector that automatically adjusts the intensity to provide the perfect readout.



Strum-Tune-Rock


PolyTune 3 provides high-precision tuning with just a quick strum, whilst the Bonafide Buffer keeps your signal transparent and strong - no matter how many stomps you use, or how long your cable runs. Plus, you'll have the most-versatile polyphonic tuner on the market, right at your toes.



Backstage Pass - All Access


With PolyTune 3, we wanted enhanced performance and maximum precision, without getting away from what made the original PolyTune and PolyTune 2 such huge hits. Here's what it's all about



Tuning Magnet


The tuner magnet feature slows down the needle once you get close to the desired pitch, delivering a quick and easy tuning experience – any time, every time.



Chromatic Champ


Besides the polyphonic tuner, PolyTune has a chromatic tuner that can hang with the best tuning technology out there, with an amazing 0.5 cent accuracy.



PolyTune: Strum - Tune - Rock!


Our original PolyTune® was the world’s first polyphonic tuner – a revolutionary game-changer, allowing instant checking of all six strings simultaneously and tuning up on the fly. Now, with PolyTune 3’s ”always on” mode, ”instant” just got a whole lot faster.



Brighter Than a Thousand Suns


PolyTune 3's retina scorching 109-LED display is spectacular in dark environments. Playing an open-air festival on a sunny day? No problem. The built-in ambient light detector ensures that the brightness is always spot-on, regardless of the lighting conditions.



Full Strobe Ahead


The strobe tuner in PolyTune 3 is super accurate and super fast. Finetune your instruments with surgical precision at blinding speeds. Sounds good, right? We’re talking ±0.1 cent tuning accuracy and in case you don’t really know what that means – believe us there are atomic clocks that’d kill for
that accuracy.



Total Recall


PolyTune 3 stores your preferences. From pitch reference to tuning mode, it hangs on to this information even after it is powered down, meaning that you can set and forget.



Not Just Any Old Buffer


PolyTune 3 features our proprietary BonaFide Buffer. A high-quality analog buffer, which combats tone–suck when using long cable runs or complex pedal setups. Since a buffer is usually placed at the beginning of the signal chain, just like your tuner, we figured it was a no-brainer to combine the two into a single compact package.



True Buffer or True Bypass - You Decide


PolyTune 3 lets you decide between buffered–bypass mode, or our tried and trusted True Bypass concept, for silent tuning and maximum signal–preserving clarity. In buffered mode, an additional ”always-on” operation is available. The flick of a switch is all it takes.



MonoPoly


MonoPoly instantly recognizes whether you play one or several strings and replies with the appropriate polyphonic or monophonic tuning mode.
