SNAMM06: Tronical PowerTune Gains Momentum
What's in a peg?

It's all go with Tronical as they gear up for the September release of PowerTune TM. Response to PowerTune TM since it's debut at Winter NAMM 06 has been big, according to Chris Adams they have had massive website interest and the compliments of the top guitar manufacturers. For the unenlightened, Tronical's PowerTune TM is a modular system that can be retro-fitted to virtually any guitar make or model, without the need for destructive rebuilding or re-working. The guitar can also be returned to its original state at any time, if needed. Tronical's PowerTune System consists of three modular main components:-
  • PowerHead-Locking Tuners
    Contained in standard-size housing, these Servo pegs consist of a servo motor and high-performance gears, along with intelligent servo electronics. Tuning stability is further guaranteed by the quality, high-grade lock mechanics.
  • Tune Control Bridge and TuneCore-Controller
    The link between the Piezo-equipped bridge and the tuning analysis represents the core (or Commando Centre) of the complete PowerTuneâ„¢ System. From here, the current tuning of the guitar is monitored and the actions of the Servo-tuners are controlled. Through the use of highly integrated electronics, the TuneCore Controller can be accommodated within a space that would otherwise prove limiting.
  • TuneControl-MultiKnob
    A multi-functional pot, with unique control button. Available in various finishes and styles to complement the design of different guitar models. The Volume knob in the ‘pull’ position becomes a raster potentiometer that offers tunings for the different strings. Built into the pot are active electronic multi-coloured LEDs which, in conjunction with the optical lens, offer superb control over all settings and tunings – even on the darkest stage! The ‘Enter’ button lets action to be confirmed quickly by simply hitting OK.
The guitar’s condition remains untouched. No drilling, cutting or other constructional changes needed. No changes to the sound, weight, performance or appearance of the guitar. We still don't know a price, at Winter NAMM 06 the manufacturers claimed that it will be significantly under $1000 USD.
