TC Electronic Unveils the PolyTune 3

The newest version includes the company's BonaFide buffer.

Risskov, Denmark (April 21, 2017) -- PolyTune 3 is the latest addition to TC Electronic's revolutionary series of polyphonic tuner pedals.

Continuing our tradition of innovation, PolyTune 3 is equipped with our acclaimed BonaFide Buffer, now giving the user a choice between signal-preserving True Bypass mode, or the all new True Buffer mode.

In buffer mode, PolyTune 3 can additionally be set to operate as “Always on”, meaning that the tuner display remains on and actively tracks your tuning, even when not muted.

PolyTune 3 takes the series to the next level with a built-in, all-analog BonaFide Buffer, preserving your tone through long cable runs and convoluted pedal boards, with a high >112 dB signal to noise ratio.

Features:

  • Built-in high quality BonaFide Buffer
  • Selectable True Bypass / True Buffer modes
  • “Always on” tuning mode

PolyTune 3 retains all of the previous features we know and love: a super bright LED display, PolyTune® simultaneous tuning, an ultra-precise strobe tuner with ±0.02 cent tuning accuracy, and chromatic tuner with 0.5 cent accuracy.

Available: Worldwide in May 2017

Price: $99 US / €99 EU

This rare English Tonemaster was made circa 1957.

The Valco-produced English Tonemaster is a rare, lap-steel-inspired gem from the 1950s—when genres and guitar design were fluid.

The 1950s were a peculiar time for the electric guitar. Innovators, designers, and tinkerers were pushing the boundaries of the instrument, while musicians were experimenting with various playing techniques and sounds. There was an evolution of sorts (or de-evolution, depending on your slant) from solidbody “sit-down” guitars, like pedal and lap steels, to “stand-up” or “upright” solidbody electrics. If you look at an early Fender catalog—let’s say from 1953—you’ll see the Telecaster (and Esquire), the Precision Bass, and then a whole bunch of steel guitars. There was a shift underway, and many manufacturers began to blur the lines of what a guitar should look, sound, and play like.
