New Toys - Tronical Tuning Technology


I call it a breakthrough! Based on the new Min-E-Tune system from the latest Gibson models, Tronical presents Tronical Tune as a retro-fit-kit to bring perfect, automatic tuning to Gibson, Fender, Epiphone, Ibanez, Charvel, Taylor, Yamaha, and FGN, Stanford guitars with more on the way. Tronical Tune is a guitar self-tuning system that installs in 10 minutes without special tools, drilling or guitar modification and devaluation necessary.

Tronical Tune is a small compact battery powered tuning unit that mounts on the back of the guitar’s headstock and is invisible from the front. According to Tronical, your guitar will look, feel, sound and play the same. Pushing one button gets the guitar in perfect tune within seconds. Additionally, the player has immediate access to 12 different alternate tunings plus six custom tunings.

Powered by an internal, rechargeable lithium-ion battery for up to 300 tunings, the system is a one-piece unit mounted on a plate along with six robot machine heads.

The Tronical Tune retro-fit-kit is available at the Tronical Components online store and at dealers worldwide for $299. Check out
