Hello guys!

We usually talk a lot about pedal models, brands, and it seems that the possibilities are infinite. I decided to start this thread to invite everybody to post how would be the perfect Pedalboard for you and also post which musical styles would you play with it....

Let's make this thread useful for those that want to start buying pedals and have not experience at all!

Who starts?

My perfect pedalboard (which I'm gonna try and put together soon for smaller shows where an AxeFX is not necessary/practical) would be something like this:

TC Electronic PolyTune
Ibanez TS808
EHX Metal Muff
TC Electronic Nova Delay

Perfect Rock/Metal/Jazz Fusion rig. Forces me to use a minimal amount of effects and focus on playing too. Might not even need the Metal Muff depending on the amp I'm using.

Is it true that the Polytune has a function which picks up the wrong notes if you just strum the guitar?

I know you can set it for drop tunings down to low C and capo'd up to the 7th fret. It tells you whats a little sharp or flat.

It does. It's not as accurate though. Let me explain! I think it's a genius system, and that's why it stays on my board.

The PolyTune (polyphonic tuner) has several nice features. The selling point is exactly what you said, you strum ALL the strings at once and it shows you which ones are out of tune, and if they are sharp or flat like this:

http://bimg1.mlstatic.com/tc-polytune-afin...4667_102012.jpg

You can then tune the strings until all the lights are green, or you can tune them individually like a normal tuner. There are two modes for single string "traditional" tuning, needle and strobe mode. Needle is what most tuners have by default, like this:

http://elderly.com/images/accessories/ELA/...TUNE_needle.jpg

The other mode is a more accurate "strobe" mode. This was made popular by the Peterson StroboStomp tuners because of their reliable accuracy when intonating guitars and such. It looks like this:

http://www.tcelectronic.com/media/260798/p...atic-mode-1.png

I think this is a perfect system for on-stage use, as you can strum all the strings to quickly see if anything is out of tune, then focus in on one string at a time if any of them are. Then check again by strumming all 6. Sure saves time going through each string individually, especially if you've got a tremolo system, where tuning your Low E string can throw off your high E and B strings! You can also have different mods, as mentioned before. Standard E, Drop D, Drop C#, Drop C, and a variety of other standard tunings.

I should also mention two similar products, the PolyTune Mini and the Hardwire HT-6 PolyChromatic Tuner.

No worries! Yeah it's really helpful on-stage, definitely gonna get a PolyTune mini later for my board just to take up less space. I also forgot to mention the LED's change brightness based on the light in the environment, so you can play outdoor shows and it'll be bright enough to see even if the sun is shining. biggrin.gif

Good point man - I always have trouble during summer when I have to perform outside and the sun is making things really difficult ...

Good to know about the TC polytune regarding the 'brightness' of the display.
I too need something I can see in the summer So. Cal midday sun.
(My Peterson 'strobo' is pretty good for that but I need an alternate as well)
