In addition, it provides a VOLUME knob to control the output volume when active (from mute to 12dB volume boost).
You can also use it as a mute box or a clean boost pedal.
Due for a Tune-up?
There are a bunch of tuners out there, and everybody’s looking for the same basic things: fast response, accurate calibration, and a big and easily visible screen. Check, check, check.
With so many tuners on the market, why would we even think to make one of our own? Because we made the Hotone Skyline Tuner to be better and offer way more:
It’s smaller (you wouldn’t waste precious space on your pedalboard with a tuner), faster (the fastest, actually), more refined, more durable, with a clearer and brighter screen, AND you can adjust the tuning volume. That means you can use it as a mute or clean boost too! The fact is, this tuner’s volume boost sounds a lot better than most of the boost pedals out there.
Like our other pedals, the footswitch is true bypass, keeping the tone pure.
Why you need it: This tuner does it all and doesn’t take up space. You only need one tuner, and this is the one.
Fast Frequency Detection Technology and MIDI Guitar
The Hotone Skyline Tuner distinguishes itself from other tuners in that it utilizes unique ultra-fast frequency detection technology, which Hotone is proud to name FDTC: Fast Frequency Detection Technology based on Time-Domain Characteristics. This type of frequency detection is able to virtually instantly analyze a signal’s time domain characteristics and thus rapidly detect the signal frequency. This technology rests on years of accumulated research by Hotone’s MIDI guitar team.
The implications are monumental: guitarists no longer have to wait on their tuner, and they no longer have to deal with inaccurate or unstable note display. With the Skyline Tuner, you can see clearly if you’re in tune or not…instantly. With any tiny pluck of the string you’re able to immediately see where you’re at on the big, bright display.
Built-in Boost Circuit
But speed and accuracy isn’t all the Skyline Tuner has to boast—there is the Clean Boost too. Tuner’s clean boost rockets out of special circuitry that provides the greatest amount of headroom possible while guaranteeing a truly pure tonal path. Even as a 9V powered pedal, the Skyline Tuner gives the kind of headroom you could previously only achieve with a 12V unit!
But make no mistake, the Tuner doesn’t simply automatically boost; there is a volume knob to give you control for up to an extra 12dB. Turn the level all the way down and you have muted tuning—and a simple mute switch for when you need it.
True Bypass Footswitch and Clear Display
Skyline Tuner uses a True Bypass switch design. And even though it’s a small stompbox, we made sure the bright display would be large enough to be clear and easily visible on any stage.
