Peterson AutoStrobe R590 Rackmount with Metronome

The AutoStrobe 590 is a mechanical tuner that comes complete with built-in tone generation and a metronome via headphones or internal speaker output. It combines input audio for contrast against on-board reference pitches. The R590 comes with Rack Mounts and Jacks on Front and Back

The AutoStrobe 590 is THE preeminent mechanical strobe tuner for tone generation and metronome facilities. It combines both input instrument tone and audio standard reference tone at the output for simultaneous visual and audible tuning along with exceptional intonation training! The 590’s key features (automatic note tracking and audio tone generation capabilities) make it a favorite in the classroom, at the factory, or backstage. And as usual, only a Peterson can respond at the speed of light to display relative tuning information extracted from any audio source down to 0.1 of a cent (1/1000 of a semitone) accuracy! Finally, utilize automatic (hands-free) note selection for fast tune ups of instruments. Proudly made in the USA.


The AutoStrobe 590 allows technicians, musicians, teachers and students of all levels hands-free note selection for convenient tuning of instruments without compromising accuracy.


The back-illuminated, eight-octave band strobe disc is spun by a digitally-controlled motor. The rotation speeds are derived from a quartz crystal reference for the ultimate in accuracy and stability.
