  • Kickstarter - Roadie Tuner

    • Motorized tuner, bluetooths to your iOS or Android phone, phone listens to pitch (via mic or plug in adapter), Roadie tunes it accordingly

    • Tons of different tunings, can save custom tunings, sharp or flat if you like

    • Keeps track of string age, lets you know when it might be time for new ones (claims to measure elasticity of strings...shrug)

    • What’s the play here? Speed? Accuracy? Learn to tune your damn guitar. The more you do it the faster you get
