In this video, Guthrie plays through his Aristocrats pedalboard - a pedalboard which is planned to fit in a travel suitcase for fly gigs and to travel lightly. It's a small board and, therefore, features a Polytune MINI, not a regular one (for space reasons). At :06s Guthrie says "the first thing that happens to my virginal, lovely, pure guitar signal is it goes into a polytune (...) a polytune mini."more
The TC Electronic Polytune Mini can be see with many other pedals Bill Kelliher of [Lethargy](https://equipboard.com/band/lethargy), [Today Is The Day](https://equipboard.com/band/today-is-the-day), and [Mastadon](https://equipboard.com/band/mastodon) is using. All of which can bee seen on this [artist page](http://www.tcelectronic.com/bill-kelliher/).more
The signal enters the board through a Vertex input buffer and then through a true-bypass loop that contains the DigiTech Whammy XP100. From there it goes through a TC Electronic Polytune Mini, Vertex Axis Wah, J. Rockett Blue Note overdrive, and a Vertex-modified Boss GE-7 Equalizer.more
In an interview w/ Premier Guitar, Dweezil Zappa's pedalboard is discussed here: "All of Dweezil's effects are run through the front of the Axe-FX II, rather than the effects loop. Along the top is a Bogner Ecstasy Blue, JAM Pedals Fuzz Phrase, SolidGoldFX Formula 76, TC Electronic PolyTune Mini, SolidGoldFX Electroman, JAM Pedals Big Chill Tremolo, and JAM Pedals Red Muck. Along the front of his board is the MFC-101 MIDI Foot Controller for the Axe-FX II and four expression pedals–the first one is for volume and the other three change function depending on the preset. On the far right side of his pedalboard, Dweezil uses a custom JAM Pedals wah along with an expression pedal to control different variables on his JAM Pedals Big Chill Tremolo. In addition to this wah, he also uses a wah within the Axe-FX II depending on if he wants it before or after his distortion pedals."more
"His pedalboard signal path is: Guitar —> T.C. Electronic Polytune Mini —> Vertex Dynamic Distortion —> Electro-harmonix Mel9 —> Strymon El Capistan —> Strymon Bluesky —> T.C.

Geoff Kraly: On the bass end of things, the bass is going through the pedal board that you’ll see, so all the pedals are for the bass. There’s three distortion pedals, there’s a Devi Ever Bit, which is an 8-bit gated fuzz. There’s a Tech 21 VT Bass, which is a SansAmp distortion. I use it more like a clean boost in a way, it’s not heavily distorted. There’s a Prunes and Custard pedal by Crowther Audio, which is made in New Zealand. It’s kind of a filter distortion. There’s two delay pedals. One is a Malekko 616, and a crazy, Particle granular delay by Red Panda. Probably the biggest part of the sound for Paris Monster is the Eventide PitchFactor. That’s doing all the pitch shifting on a few different settings. That’s on 80% of the time in this band. Maybe a little less than that. Then, an Ernie Ball volume pedal. I think that’s about it. Yeah, and then some expression knobs and AUX switches for the Eventide.more
This tc electronic polytune mini is perfect for my board. The single most important feature is that it is an accurate tuner. After that I can't say enough about how little real estate it takes up. Other tuners are massive compared to this. It's helpful that you can strum your guitar and get a quick idea of which string(s) is out. The display is bright which is essential to anyone that plays with the lights down. It's design is simple and it stays out of the way. What more could you ask for in your tuner?
I really love this little gadget! It takes almost no place on your pedalboard but the display is still big enough and the display got a very simple design. It's the most accurate tuner I have tried out and it's looks gorgeous as well.
This little guy is perfect. Its so bright when you're on a dark stage and can't see. The display really got it for me. It is nice to see what strings aren't in tune when you strum. I highly recommend this over the TU-3.
Does what the description says. Very straightforward and intuitive. Accuracy is also commendable. Noise is somehow generated when the pedal is bypassed. Could be the cables' problems.
Accurate, fast, simple, reliable, smart, small footprint, true bypass... It doesn't even show up on the board. What else to say about a tuner? For me the best option.
