    6 5/16" is pretty big for something that simple. And it definitley FUGLY in my opinion.

    The rep at namm said that artists requested a giant tuner exactly for giant stages. Seems weird to release it to everyone.
     
  5. to me it just looks like a rack tuner without the rack ears--it doesn't look that bad to me
     
  6. :eek:

    I WANT ONE! It's the HUEG!!

    you do realize that one picture with it lying on the floor with all the regular size floor pedals is not a Photoshop retouch, right? That's the actual size of the pedal! It's like a cartoon tuner or something.
     
  8. Wow.

    I wonder how much it costs. $199US I bet. Haha. Seriously, who would need that except the biggest of rock stars? They're gonna sell like 200 units.

    It's Roland, which means more than you would think it would sell for. I believe it's closer to $300. $279 or something.
     
  10. I think this thread got moved out of effects? Funny that normally pedal tuners get lumped in the effects forum. This is so big the mods don't even consider it a pedal :p thats telling!
     
  11. No, it is photoshopped.

    go to 53 seconds.

    Well it isn't photoshopped too much. I've seen the photos of it side by side, and it really is that big looking. It's crazy.

    That is photoshopped, you can tell by the shadows and focus being different between it and the other stuff on the floor.

    What difference does it make to see it from far away? I assume you don't want anyone to hear you tuning so you have to walk up to it to mute your output anyway, right? I don't understand.

    I can see the application for those who play outside in situations with high ambient illumination - the lights should be brighter and easier to see.

    agreed, but physically that big? The little "A" is normal size as on a rack tuner. It's just weird to me.
     
  19. its only 16" wide--rackmount stuff is 19" so its not that big
