strobe tuners tuning peterson

Video interview with Mike Skubic of Peterson Tuners



Alsip, IL (May 1, 2008) - For many guitarists, strobe tuners are the only way to go, but dragging one to gig after gig is easier said than done. Enter the Virtual Strobe Tuner, invented by Mike Skubic of Peterson Electro-Musical Products, Inc. A mainstay on many a pedal board around the world now, as well as on countertops and in all sorts of racks and custom applications, it all started with a guy wondering how the reliability of a classic strobe could be translated into a modern design without moving parts.



Skubic took a moment to chat with us about his creation during a recent Premier Guitar On Location stop in the Chicago area. It's interesting to note that the Virtual Strobe is still being matched with new situations, keeping Skubic busier than ever!

Why Fender + Fender (or other brands) = more than the sum of their own signature sounds.

This column is not for the faint of back, but the rewards of such potentially heavy lifting are great. In my previous columns "Like Peanut Butter and Chocolate: Classic Guitar & Fender-Amp Pairings" (May 2020) and "Finding Perfect Tones in Imperfect Amps" (January 2021), I've discussed classic Fender amp and guitar pairings and how to EQ and tweak amps to get ideal tones. Let's take it a step further and discuss how to combine multiple amps to achieve even more complex, richer tones.

Playing in the pocket is the most important thing in music. Just think about how we talk about great music: It's "grooving" or "swinging" or "rocking." Nobody ever says, "I really enjoyed their use of inverted suspended triads," or "their application of large-interval pentatonic sequences was fascinating." So, whether you're playing live or recording, time is everyone's responsibility, and you must develop your ability to play in the pocket.
