After impressing dealers across the USA at the winter NAMM show this past January, followed by an equally memorable appearance at the Frankfurt Musik Messe in March, the revolutionary Tune-Bot electronic drum tuner will make its consumer-show debut at the 2012 Percussive Arts Society International Convention (PASIC) this coming October 31-November 3 in Austin, Texas.
PASIC is the largest percussion event in the world, offering over 120 concerts and educational presentations. A major feature of the convention is the International Drum & Percussion Expo, in which more than 120 exhibitors showcase the latest in percussion products. The Tune-Bot, from Overtone Labs, will be a featured item at this year’s Expo, giving the artists, educators, and consumers in attendance the opportunity to examine this unique product first-hand.
The innovative yet user-friendly Tune-Bot measures actual sonic frequencies, giving a true indication of a drum’s pitch. Thus it allows the drummer to tune musically instead of mechanically. With the Tune-Bot, drummers can quickly and easily achieve the same musical accuracy that guitarists have enjoyed for years.
The Tune-Bot offers a wide a variety of tuning options. It can be used to get a drum “in tune with itself”…tune any drum to a specific desired pitch…even get an entire drumkit in tune using specific intervals. And once the “perfect” tuning of a kit has been achieved, the Tune-Bot can memorize the setting for each drum, so that that same tuning can be recalled and re-established the next time the kit is played. This is an especially helpful feature when it comes time for drumhead changes.
The Tune-Bot can be used with drums on or off the kit — with specific functional features tailored to each situation. The unit is compact and lightweight enough to fit in any stick bag, and it comes fitted with a simple clamp system that makes it easy to use. Best of all, the Tune-Bot is as affordable as it is useful. For more information on the Tune-Bot, visit www.Tune-Bot.com. For more information on PASIC, visit pas.org/pasic.
