Peavey launches auto-tuning guitar
One of the most frustrating things involved when playing guitar is when halfway through a performance or live gig the instrument goes out of tune and players have to take a minute while they correctly set it back up.
This could be a thing of the past as the AT-200 has the ability to tune itself with the musician simply having to strum a chord and then a sensor adjusts the string.
Fred Poole, Peavey's general manager, told Musical Instrument Professional: “The idea for the AT-200 came from a conversation we had with Antares. They developed the technology outside of Peavey, came back and showed it to us, we said Wow! we want to be a part of this, so we've been involved from the very concept stage, which has taken a couple of years.”
Peavey is not the first company to introduce a self-tuning guitar with Gibson releasing the Robot in December 2007 that allowed musicians to use a button which would tune the strings to the preferred intonation.
