I've made it common knowledge that I tried the Peterson StroboStomp tuner and disliked it due to it's finicky nature and non-user friendly nature (IMHO). Others have used it with great success and have continuously sang it's praises.
So, what made me take a chance on another Peterson tuner? I've stated repeatedly that I think that one of their tuners would be an asset for doing bench work. When I made this statement, I had the VS1 or VS2 in mind.
Upon finding the StroboFlip, I thought that it might actually fill that niche and a couple of others. It is compact and folds up as it's own convenient protective case. A feature that allows me to toss it into my guitar case. It has a clip on mic for tuning accoustic instruments, also.
Though not set up for use on a pedal board like the StroboStomp, the StroboFlip could be used in that manner. I foresee using this tuner on the bench alot. I,also, plan to use it on top of my amp quite a bit. The tuner can also be mounted to a mic stand via the handy mounting bracket supplied by Peterson. A handy feature for monitoring the key of a tune, for transposing keys for non "C" instruments, determining temperment root notes and note detection control.
It has all the settings and features associated with other Peterson Virtual, Strobe tuners but (IMHO) is much more user friendly. The strobe itself seems much more stable than the StroboStomp I owned. Now, I suspect that that unit may not have been operating correctly.
For now, I am extremely impressed with the StroboFlip. It's what my StroboStomp should have been.
