TC Electronic Unveils the PolyTune 2 Mini

The new PolyTune 2 Mini features an upgraded display with 109 ultra-bright LEDs.

Risskov, Denmark (September 2, 2014) -- TC Electronic announces PolyTune 2 Mini and PolyTune 2 Noir.

PolyTune 2 Mini takes everything that's great about TC Electronic's innovative polyphonic tuning technology, and crams it into an unfathomably small enclosure that willl fit on basically any pedalboard out there. On top of that, the new PolyTune 2 Mini features an upgraded display with 109 ultra-bright LEDs, which ensures that no matter where you play, you will always get a fast and clear read on whether you're in tune or not. Finally, a new super-precise strobe tuner mode has been added. With its 0.1 cent accuracy, PolyTune 2 Mini is the perfect tool for setting up your instrument with dead-on precision.

PolyTune 2 Mini still features the original chromatic tuning mode, TC Electronic's ingenious MonoPoly technology which automatically detects if you're tuning one string or several strings at the same time, drop-D and capo tunings, flat tunings, and true bypass.

PolyTune 2 Noir has all of the functions of PolyTune 2 Mini, but instead it comes in the most rock n roll color of all: Black! Tuning has simply never looked this good!

Polytune 2 Noir is available exclusively at Guitar Center, Musicians Friend and Long & McQuade in North America.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
