stroboflip vs strobostomp 2
« on: August 04, 2007, 03:56:22 PM »
Can someone with experience please tell me the difference in using these two tuners. I want a tuner that can be used in the pit, that has a mute function, and that is light and easy to read.  I have a korg in my rack but I'm looking for something to take with me when I just bring my unmounted 550 in a bag.  Strengths and weaknesses of each please.  thanks for your help.t

I believe the StroboFlip is a stand-alone unit that has since replaced the VS-II (the one I use), compared to the Stomp which is a pedal-based unit designed to sit on the floor.
(they also just recently released a rack-mounted version which looks mighty nice too).

While I don't have any experience with the Stomp or the Flip, I can definitely say I'm madly in love with my VS-II and now don't know how I ever lived without it - for live shows I park it on top of my rig plugged into my CXC-210's Tuner output jack. When working with it in the studio, I use their optional mike-stand clamp to mount it right where I need it (I also have a Frontier Tranzport wireless DAW controller mounted on the same mike-stand as well...it's become my "Ground Control" stand. ;-) ).

If you're not used to working with a strobe-style tuner like these Peterson, I know it can look a little daunting to some folks, but I got used to it very quickly. I've heard some people complain that it takes them too long to get in tune using them because of the degree of precision it has, but I've personally never had such a problem and can tune up pretty quickly with it.  :-)
