Guitar that tunes itself? Peavey's AT-200.

Boot Camp feature for Friday, March 15, 2013

A guitar that tunes itself.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   It’s called the AT-200.  A guitar from Peavey Electronics that tunes itself using Antares Auto-Tune, the technology used by some singers to stay on key or alter their sound.   How does it work?   Peavey’s General Manager for Business Development Tony Moscal…

“When I play the guitar, I can tune it like a regular guitar, mechanically, and play it like a regular guitar.  But as you can hear, this guitar is horribly out of tune.  All I have to do is activate is activate the circuitry, calibrate the strings, push a button and it puts the guitar in perfect pitch.   At the push of a button.  Nothing mechanical happened.  It’s all done internally with dual processors.”

You can even turn it into a bass.    You can find pricing online as low as 400 dollars.   You can find more info at www.Peavey.com.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
