Roadie2 Guitar Tuner REVIEW

DETAILS

The Roadie 2 is designed to help beginners and experts alike tune their instruments quickly and more accurately than they typically can by hand. The Roadie 2 can be used with all stringed instruments with guitar machine heads except bass guitars. For bass guitars, musicians should use the Roadie Bass. The Roadie 2 is a fully automated instrument tuner. It works by analyzing vibrations from a plucked string to know its current pitch. The motor of the device then rotates the peg until it’s tuned. According to the specs on the product’s page, you can fully tune a guitar in about 30 seconds with Roadie 2.

  • Detection range of A1 (55Hz) — A5 (880Hz)
  • Detection accuracy of less than ±1 cent

  • Can tune in noisy environments
  • Re-string quickly and easily with the automatic winding feature. The motor rotates at three speeds, the fastest of which is 75 RPM
  • Companion app available
  • Bluetooth connectivity — tune up to 150 strings on a single charge

USER EXPERIENCE

Since I’ve only ever really ‘picked’ at a guitar, I wasn’t sure exactly how easy (or difficult) using the Roadie 2 would be. The box it comes in has a lovely photo on the front that shows the product in use on the neck of a guitar. As nice as this photo is, I would much rather see a nice product image shot so that I knew at a glance what was in the box and what I could expect from the product housed inside. The description on the box is well-written and defines the Roadie 2 well. When you open up the box, you will find the Roadie 2 device and a small branded box that contains the USB-C charging cable and product manual. The manual is quite thick but has the instructions listed in several languages. The manual is easy to follow and honestly, once you read it once, you shouldn’t need to look at it again given how easy the Roadie 2 is to operate.

CONCLUSION

I believe this tuner is a ‘must have’ for any guitar player — beginner to expert. The tuning process can be very aggravating even for the most experienced players. Why not take some of that stress away by using this amazing piece of technology? The Roadie 2 is a smart investment and I can’t recommend it enough.
