The String Master Robotic Guitar Tuner

By David Ponce

Shortly after my birth, tiny, furry little critters crawled into my ears and pooped magical tonedeafness pebbles. They have stayed there ever since, and as an unfortunate consequence, I am completely (you guessed it) tonedeaf. I cannot hit any note, let alone tune a guitar. So that’s why the String Master gives me hope.

Tuning a guitar doesn’t get any simpler. Attach it to a peg and pluck the associated string. The String Master will actually turn it (the peg) for you until that string vibrates at the proper frequency.

So, the way I figure, I buy this $50 contraption, a guitar, some sheet music and I’m all set. I’ll be able to play some Led Zep riffs, even if to my ears it sounds like some hysterical Celine Dion wails.

Get it at Hotguitarist. Story VIA New Launches.


Use your guitar tuner on a top of the line Electric Guitar. Getting  brand new Music Equipment  is less expensive and faster than you may think.

    If you are tonedeaf, why do you want to play music in the first place?

    Seems useless, lazy and ockward but then again some people are ignorant and will buy it.

    I will be more impressed when they have a chromatic version – there are more than just EADGBE guitars in the world such as Pedal Steels, banjos, Dobros, Mandos, not to mention those weird japaneese three-string goobers and ancient Roman lutes – but seriously, if you’re a guitar tech that has to string a dozen guitars a day I suppose this would be quite the gadget. Just my 3 cents worth. Keep pickin

  • Jimmy Davis

    yeah chromatic or possibly diff tungings etc wider selection and ability ot create ya own settgins like fx boxes… great idea thought, I sure gibson have a les paul that has similar built into the bridge….all cool though !

    Wonder if that would be of any use?
    Want to tune your guitar from your mobile phone?
    I am part of a team that did a university project in early 2007 on this subject.
    We actually created the first platform independent (java2ME) mobile phone tuner for all java enabled
    mobile phones that actually tunes your guitar by using the microphone to record your tones.
