There are few things as annoying to guitarists as having to constantly tune up their instruments. But, unfortunately, that’s an unavoidable part of playing. And while you could take the exhaustingly long amount of time it takes to make sure all your strings are tuned perfectly between every song, wouldn’t you rather just get back to rocking out? Well, with the Roadie 2 automatic guitar tuner, you can.
Taking the next step forward from the original Roadie guitar tuner, this new version stands out in one major way: it is a stand-alone device. The first Roadie required connectivity to a tablet or smartphone and an included app in order to function, whereas this one does all the work on its own. What’s even cooler is that you can actually program custom tunings into the device and save them for later use, tune in even the loudest environments (thanks to its vibration detection), and it’s compatible with just about any stringed instrument. They’re even offering a bass guitar version this time around. It will retail starting at $149, but you can back the project on Kickstarter now. [Purchase]
