Tuning an instrument can be tricky, especially for novice musicians with an untrained ear. With this in mind, Band Industries was formed in 2013, aiming to let artists spend more time playing and less time tuning. This resulted in numerous automated tuning products over the last seven years, though Band Industries has now rolled out a new automatic smart tuner for 2020 with the Roadie 3 Next Generation Automatic Instrument Tuner.
Acoustic or electric guitars, Banjos, mandolins, ukuleles, basses: if it has guitar pegs, the Roadie 3 can automatically tune it. The handheld gadget now packs a brand-new full-color screen and a recess at the top that can slip over guitar pegs to automatically (twist/adjust) tune them using a special algorithm. This takes any and all hassle out of manually tuning a stringed-instrument and guarantees perfect pitch every time you play. Offering faster tuning than ever before, clocking in at a blazing 120RPM, the Roadie 3 can also be used to restring instruments — saving players a lot of time and frustration. The Roadie 3 starts at $79 for the Super Early Bird Special and goes up to $445 for the five-unit Jam Pack.
