The Roadie 2 is a unique, automatic tuner with a built in motorised string winder, designed for use with electric, acoustic, classical and 7 & 12- string guitars, as well as other stringed instruments such as banjos, mandolins and ukuleles.
Simple to use, the tuner will automatically wind your strings until they reach the correct pitch, indicated by a little beep and a green light, and the unit also vibrates for a moment, handy for if can’t hear the beep when you’re tuning up on stage.
Along with the standard guitar tunings, there’s over 40 alternatives to choose from, including common tunings such as open G, C & D, as well as all the popular drop tunings. You can save settings for a number of different instruments for quick and easy recall, and although the Roadie 2 is a standalone unit, you can also link it up to it’s companion app, for more in-depth customisation, allowing you to save and rename up to 40 of your own specifically tailored tunings.
The unit itself feels sturdy but lightweight, it features a large, easy to read OLED display, the winder is attached to a 300:1 ratio motor which is powerful enough to turn even the stiffest of machineheads, but is also capable of smooth micro adjustments to ensure precision tuning. As the tuner works by picking up the strings vibrations, as opposed to a microphone, it can be used in noisy gigging environments, and it’s powered by an internal lithium ion battery, which is charged via USB, with a full charge allowing for tuning of about 150 strings.
