Well I didn't think I was buying anything else for while but I guess I'm getting one of these.
Very Happy Love me a good Peterson. I also use the Peterson strobosoft App all the time . I must say when my HD Stomp came in the mail a few years back I was disappointed by how bulky and heavy it was. It seems as though Peterson has made a better and smaller tuner! Can't wait to try it.

It really is. Especially if you program it to be able to switch tunings via your foot!

Received my replacement tuner in just two days. Amazing customer service by Peterson.
Works exactly as it should.
Now I have a new issue… Went to mount it on my pedalboard, and the rubberized backing on the tuner is so slick it won't allow the Velcro to stick to it. Only options I can think of is either too use something like gorilla glue to glue the Velcro pads on the back of the tuner, or use a strap tie which would have to run the length of the display screen. Neither option is appealing to me. Anybody else have this experiences or have any solutions?
Beginning to think I'm just not meant for a fancy tuner…


I have a pedal board that I used a tie wrap to secure a wall/switch cover plate and then put the Velcro on the back of that as I didn’t want to mess up the labels on my “vintage” pedals. Works great!

Just got one of these yesterday - does anyone know when using with a U12 E9/B6th, does the P12 preset cover the E9th pedals as well as the 6th pedals, or should I use the SP9 or OP9 preset for those pedals?


SE9
Peterson Pedal Steel Guitar Sweetened Tuning for 10 string pedal steel in E9 tuning. This is based on Jeff Newman's later system where the E strings are sharp of concert pitch.

SP9
Peterson Pedal Steel Guitar Sweetened Tuning for lever and pedal settings in E9 tuning. Use in conjunction with SE9 preset for open strings.

OE9
Peterson Pedal Steel Guitar Sweetened Tuning for 10 String pedal steel in E9 tuning. This is based on Jeff Newman's earlier system where the E strings are at concert pitch.

OP9
Peterson Pedal Steel Guitar Sweetened Tuning for lever and pedal settings in E9 tuning. Use in conjunction with 0E9 preset for open strings based on Jeff Newman's system.

U12
Peterson Pedal Steel Guitar Sweetened Tuning for 12 string universal pedal steel guitar in E9/B6 tuning. This contains the offsets for the open strings based on Jeff Newman's system.

P12
Peterson Pedal Steel Guitar Sweetened Tuning for 12 string universal pedal steel guitar in E9/B6 tuning. This contains the offsets for the pedals and levers based on Jeff Newman's system, use in conjunction with U12 preset for open strings.

As I often experiment with anything "steel", I sat down the other day in front of a digital keyboard and my steel to see which of the sweetners matched the keyboard best.

Playing single notes plus chords on the keyboard, I would play open single notes and open chords with no pedals and with A & B pedal, 0 fret. I was looking for what matched the best, according to my ear when using each sweetner.

This past weekend I did a gig here in town with me on steel and Danny Muhammad on bass (fantastic steel player along with about 5 other instruments and steel player for Ray Price for about 14 years). On breaks we discussed tuning different ways just as has been spoken on the Forum before, Just Intonation vs. Equal Temperament. The discussion sparked me to perform the experiment spoke of above using my Stomp tuner.

All sweetners did a good job, but I chose the EM9 & EP9 as my choice that sound the best with the keyboard, with the least waver sounds with the keyboard.

It seems the EM9 used the 440 string tunings with the exception of the 3rds which were tuned flat to 438.5 (per Buddy Emmons).

Anyhow, this is my findings and opinions.

I think people who rely on the use of open strings, such as dobro and banjo players would like to be able to use the bump feature to change capo settings within the sweeteners.

I would use that for sure, especially if one could eliminate the capo positions one wasn't going to use (for example, I never capo dobro above the 4th fret, and rarely detune).

Great new product. Looking forward to grabbing one of these!

On occasion I will seem to be a little sharp or flat with the band at certain points in the song. So I would just add a little vibrato to my bar.

I always thought this was my playing till I used this tuner. I would play a chord with the singer at one of those spots in question and look at the tuner. It was perfect , no clockwise or counterclockwise movement signifying that my chord was perfectly in tune. It was the singer that was slightly off in those locations. Love this tuner!!!

Mike,
U12 covers all the open strings on the Newman E9/B6 tuning. P12 covers all the pedals and knee levers when engaged.

Thanks for the info, Jon - it appears that the U12 preset is also based on Jeff Newman's later system where the E strings are sharp of concert pitch.

Couple questions.....

I have the Stroboplus HD. It is a great pedal that I just couldn’t live without for PSG!

Considering “upgrading” to this new one.

I like that it has 9V power. As a pedalboard user, this provides seamless integration with my setup.

Right now, I use the Stroboplus HD and mount. It is certainly handy to have on the leg of my steel, but it is a bit clunky and takes up some very valuable space in my seat. I like the idea of eliminating the mounting bracket and having a more compact tuner that always has power.

Am I correct I’m understanding that I can program it to switch between the SE9 and SP9 setting only? And that I can control the switching using just the pedal footswitch (after setting it up per instructions earlier in the thread)?

This would seem to give me a more compact setup with less fuss (I always end up switching things the wrong way or accidentally adjusting parameters I don’t want with the Stroboplus HD)?

Thanks

From what I understand your answer is yes. It is explained earlier in the thread.

I’ll tell ya, this new Strobostomp has sent me spiraling down a rabbit hole. I won’t be able to fit it onto my current pedalboard (PT Nano), so I bought a Creation Music Company Aero 17x7 Board to house it and the other four pedals that I use. Mounting my strymon Ojai R30 underneath with the taller feet I also purchased.

New signal chain will go:

Mullen RP D10
Goodrich Passive

...and then to the pedalboard with:
Strobostomp
MXR Phase 95
Bearfoot Honey Bee
Chase Bliss Tonal Recall
Catalinbread Topanga

Amp.

The preset switching via the footswitch works well. You hold the footswitch down, mute and then tap your strings and it will scroll to the next preset with each tap. It will switch between SE9 and SP9 if those are the only presets you have loaded. If you need others the footswitch will scroll through them all. Works well so long as your number of presets is small. Also, assigning a different colour to each preset helps alot - no more tuning open strings accidentally with SP9!

If you want some set of presets sometimes and another set other times I think it is possible to store them as separate configurations and switch between them (not via the footswitch though!) but I this is not important for me so I haven't tried this.
