“I think the concept is fantastic and I would be thrilled to have one of these” says Spike Edney from Queen. “I really love it. I think this is the stuff” adds Mark Farner from Grand Funk Railroad. “This device actually tunes the guitar for you, it’s incredible, and I think guitar players are going to love this device” notes Elliot Easton from The Cars. These musicians cannot be wrong! Roadie is the ultimate musician’s tool which guarantees the perfect tuning for your playstyle. It’s not a coincidence that this device has already reached its crowdfunded goal on Kickstarter.
Band Industries, the company from Port Townsend (WA), one’s again has combined their passions for music and tech to improve their first product, Roadie Tuner. Now, they have created fully standalone Roadie 2 and Roadie Bass which use vibration detection to tune in even the noisiest of environments. This device will satisfy both, beginner guitarists and touring musicians. No matter your experience level, tuning can be a chore and take time away from playing.
Roadie 2 is an automatic string tuner that is quick, easy to use, and three times more accurate than the human ear. It is compatible with any string instrument with a guitar machine head including 6-7-12 string guitars, ukuleles, mandolin, banjo and more. When using Roadie Bass, its new more powerful motor allows you to tune bass guitars as well. Roadie 2 adds new dimensions to music-making by enabling you to experiment with known alternate tunings freely. Besides, this device is really easy to use. Just place Roadie to the tuning peg, strum the string, and you get the ideal tuning in a few seconds.
