Peterson Strobe tuners are among the most accurate tuners on the market!
The Peterson VS-R StroboRack represents the latest release featuring Peterson’s now legendary Virtual Strobe tuning technology. With Peterson’s 1/10-cent accuracy - up to 30 times better than the accuracy of needle/LED tuners - the StroboRack is the most accurate rack tuner on the market today.
An important advantage of Virtual Strobe Technology is that no in tune/out of tune decision is ever made electronically-a process inherently subject to inaccuracy. Your eye simply interprets the motion of the pattern as an indication of tuning error relative to the target pitch. Only this method provides the high level of resolution in a Peterson strobe tuner that allows unprecedented accuracy in tuning to standard pitches and permits one to utilize the subtler shades of altered temperaments and Sweeteners found as presets in our tuners. It is this superior precision that also allows user-programmed tunings with up to 1/10th cent resolution settings to be achieved.
Huge Sweetened Tuning Library
The StroboRack’s tuning library contains a whopping 34 tempered and exclusive Peterson Sweetened tunings (see side bar). Along with the popular GTR and BAS presets, the StroboRack features unique new presets for acoustic guitar, DADGAD, 12-string guitar, baritone guitar, E9th, C6th and Universal steel guitar, Dobro and resonator guitar, and electric violin, as well as tuning and intonation offsets for Buzz Feiten Tuning System equipped guitars. User-defined presets allow a user to tie an instrument's Sweetener to a drop/capo setting in order to create a uniquely-named preset for instant recall from the front panel.
Built Like a Tank
The StroboRack’s enclosure is a uniquely cast piece that makes the chassis incredibly strong and impervious to the rigors of the road. All jack sockets are by Neutrik, guaranteeing optimal connection quality and long-lasting durability. The StroboRack supports use of a rear-mounted detachable BNC rack light for patching in gear under low-light conditions. Remote mute control is available with standard third-party pedals. (BNC rack light and mute pedal not included.)
Backlit, Customizable Display
Even in the darkest of situations, the large, easy-to-see display allows hassle-free tuning from far away.The display's contrast is optimized for tuning in very bright environments as well, for stage or outdoor use. Easily replace the backlit StroboRack logo on the display by programming your band name, your hit song name, or anything you want your audience to read when you aren't in tuning mode.
Add an SR-EX Pro Expander for More I/O
The optional StroboRack expansion module allows users to add balanced, stereo and mono input/output jacks to an existing StroboRack, enabling use with stereo, hybrid and balanced instrument signals. An on-board, independent active DI, and footswitch-selectable channel outputs and presets make the StroboRack the logical choice for professional live & studio use.
