With that question, Zero Crossing’s debut product, the patent pending N-Tune Onboard Chromatic Tuner, was born. Fast forward to 2008, and N-Tune announces the world’s most convenient solution for fast, accurate guitar tuning—on stage, in studio or wherever. The concept is simple: just pull your guitar’s volume knob up, silently tune up in seconds then push it back down to play.
“We’re so excited about what N-Tune offers versus other tuners in the market,” commented Sam Sudore, Zero Crossing President and CEO. “Stompbox tuners alter your tone, hand-held tuners are easy to lose, and clip-on tuners, well… they just plain suck. With its onboard, true-bypass design, N-Tune solves all these problems — and is impervious to sweat, crud, and noise from stage lights. The response from guitar players has been phenomenal.”
N-Tune installs seamlessly and inconspicuously into most guitars using standard tools, and requires no permanent modifications. It is available in both Fender- and Gibson-style designs. Better still, with its true bypass circuitry and string detection technology, N-Tune gives the guitarist superb, uncompromised tone and fast, accurate tuning that’s always right at your fingertips.
