Peavey launches auto-tuning guitar

The company is making the AT-200 available in the UK.
Great deals on musical instruments
Peavey has announced that its auto-tuning guitar is coming to the UK, giving all players the nifty option of not having to manually set up their instrument.

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.
