Gadgets In The Key Of “C”

Tronical KnobEver on the search for ways to do less faster and better, I stumbled across a link to this site. This company – Tronical – has developed a kit that, when installed on a compatible guitar, will automatically tune the guitar in less than two seconds! Oh yeah, this isn’t limited to standard pitch (440Hz) or tuning (E-A-D-G-B-E)…so you can either get your axe back into tune after thrashing on it or change into an entirely different tuning and/or pitch. I do, however, see two drawbacks.

  1. No price listed…or in other words, go ahead and guess that this’ll be ‘spensive!
  2. It’s not gonna make you sound any better! When you hit the wrong note notes, they may be in tune, but they’re still not gonna sound good!

Update: Reading an article at Sonic State, Tronical plans to release this with an MSRP below $1k. Also, if you go to the Synthax site (the distributor for Tronical), you can find some additional of the same information about this product.
