Built tough and loaded with innovative features for flexible, reliable onstage tuning.

The Planet Waves Chromatic Pedal Tuner is a sweep and strobe tuner with patent-pending intuitive rotary user interface housed in a rugged, roadworthy metal enclosure. An oversized note name indicator and super-bright tuning LEDs combine to make on-stage tuning easy in all lighting conditions. Professional features like true hard bypass for preserved tone and dual 9v AC jacks make the instrument tuner at home in any pedal board configuration.

In Strobe mode, the played note appears in green on the oversized rotary display while red LEDs chase clockwise if you're sharp and counterclockwise if you're flat. They slow down and finally stop as you nail the pitch. In Sweep mode, the LEDs sweep left or right indicating whether you're flat or sharp.

A big, multi-segment note indicator in the center of the display is very legible when standing. The pedal activates the mute/bypass circuit while 3 controls above it select the tuning mode and user-selectable A435”A445 calibration.

The pedal instrument tuner runs on an included 9V battery and has 9V I/O for daisy-chaining other pedals. With its large display and true bypass that doesn't mess with your tone, it's ideal for electric guitar players who have to perform in dark conditions and who use pedal boards.

Noisy tuner


from Belmont NC.

Comments about Planet Waves PW-CT-04 Chromatic Pedal Stage Tuner:

Tunes well, easy to read, seems built very very sturdy. However, when powering it with my one spot, it introduces noise into my rig. I cant get any answers from visual sound or from planet waves about it. So I just use a 9v in the tuner, one spot for everything else.


Great, but with key flaw


from Irvine, CA

Comments about Planet Waves PW-CT-04 Chromatic Pedal Stage Tuner:

The unit works well, is very easy to see, and the strobe seems accurate. It does eat batteries, so I purchased the power adapter. When the unit first arrived, a piece of the battery clip was broken off, and the footpedal didn't latch shut. After looking at it, I realized that this was going to break sooner or later anyway, so I decided not to get an RMA, and used a piece of velcro strap to keep the top from opening too far. Other than that, the pedal seems to be built like a brick (and weighs like one too), except for the design flaw of the cheap and poorly designed plastic latch. Even so, I'd still recommend it.

Best Pedal Tuner on the Market!


from Billings, MT

Comments about Planet Waves PW-CT-04 Chromatic Pedal Stage Tuner:

After looking at the Boss TU-2 and Fender PT-100 chromatic tuner pedals, I decided on the Planet Waves CT04 due to its larger display. Upon receiving it, I was impressed! Not only is the Planet Waves pedal tuner built more durable than the Fender model, it's also built noticeably tougher than the Boss TU-2! The all-metal casing and heft of the Planet Waves CT04 makes it the most road-worthy pedal I've ever seen!The tuner performs excellently, is extremely accurate, and has a very bright display. Being able to choose between bypass and muted tuning also makes it versatile. The pedal produces no noise whatsoever, making it quieter than the competition. Powering the CT04 with a 1 SPOT (or similar power source), along with a Boss PCS20A daisy chain, allows the pedal tuner to power a truckload of effects pedals, making this the perfect choice for the pedal board! This is a must-have item!
