One of Rocktron's latest pedal designs is the X-Tune chromatic tuner for guitar and bass. The X-Tune provides easy tuning in a floor format with multi-LEDs and lighted notes that make it easy to tune on dark stages.
Note Indicator LEDs show the actual note being tuned. A row of notes will actually light up when the X-Tune is turned on, and during tuning the LED under each note being tuned will light up. The X-Tune handles 12 Note tuning and a 7 octave range. A calibration switch is provided. The X-Tune includes a Calibration Button which is used to calibrate the unit to match the pitch of any instrument or audio source (like a piano or tape player).
Built into Rocktron's usual strong aluminum chassis, the X-Tune allows muting for silent tuning, and continuous out for live tuning. A Mute Silent Tuning Jack allows you to mute the output of your guitar going to your amplifier or next stomp box so that you can tune in silence. The X-Tune includes a Continuous Output Jack (Out To Amp) allowing you to connect a standard guitar cable with a 1/4" jack to your next stomp box effect or directly into your amplifier if you want to hear the note being tuned. An easy-access 9 Volt Battery compartment allows a quick battery change during gigs.
