FoxGear Pedals has unveiled the Multitune, a stompbox tuner for electric guitar (opens in new tab) that can polyphonically tune your guitar in open tunings and displays sharps and flats.

Indeed, FoxGear says the Multitune is the only polyphonic tuner that works with open tunings in this way. It has a bright digital display taking up around half or more of its enclosure, with a footswitch to turn on and off.

The tuner has relay assisted, true-bypass circuitry so shouldn't step on your tone. When you step on the switch the signal is muted and you can tune up chromatically or polyphonically. 

FoxGear use a digital signal processor from AnalogDevices as the brains of the tuner so they can run their note detection software and a digital compressor improves the tuner's performance, which might make it ideal for gentle tune-ups on cranky instruments. 

The Multitune retails for $89. No UK RRP yet but we would imagine this to come in around £89 or less.
