I don't know where to start my experience with the tronical system and the company has been excellent.
Right off the bat I expressed some concerns with protecting my purchase because it was out of the country. Not only did tronical respond immediately to my concerns but they got my custom order from Germany to the Northeast United States in two days!
The install was a snap on my Stratocaster and I was playing in alternate tunings within an hour of receiving the product. I did a lot of research before I bought this system and had talked with people who had bought a prior generation of the tronical system. It seems like the major complaints or that you could not tune in a noisy environment. I have had my tronical tuners now for about 2 months and have played quite a few shows and rehearsals with it and I can say there are no issues with tuning no matter how noisy the environment.
One of my other concerns were that the intonation of the bridge would not hold going from tuning to tuning.
I can say that is not an issue either.
Being a left-handed player I longed for a time when I could play in different tunings without carrying four or five guitars with me. I sent letters and emails to the company that makes the Variax almost begging them to release a left-handed model with no success. They ignored me and never even sent a reply.
The tronical system has been a godsend to me and I am not even using hyperbole.

Really happy with the Tronical Auto-Tunning system. Works fine, it does the job.

This dropped right into my ESP LTD MH-350NT. It was incredibly easy to install and works great.
I would put these into more of my guitars if I had to cash, but they are pretty pricey.
The only drawback for this particular model is that there is a bit of overhang when you install it onto an ESP headstock, since it is so narrow. What I mean is that you can see the tuner protruding from the side if you are looking at the headstock from the front. It's not by a lot and by no means a dealbreaker. Just something to keep in mind.

I was skeptical about these, because I thought that they were just more, high tech, junk, that would come and go. My friend bought an LP 50's tribute with one installed.. We were mesmerized. It was like Johnny 5, or R2d2 AND it worked like a charm. Typical, over the top, quality German engineering and construction. The, string up, option is, not only convenient, but just down right fun. So far, I have installed one on one of my LPs, an SG and a tele. Bye-bye tuning pedal. Plus, the audience thinks you're REALLY good when you can tune with no hands. My goal is to have one on all of my guitars. Seriously amazing product.

Using the Tronical system has enabled me to gig with only one axe, which is huge. My band switches from E to Eb twice per night, so being able to hit a button or two to make that happen rather than switching guitars is totally awesome. The tuning process is quick, simple, and very accurate. I am a big big fan.
My minor wishlist for improvements: 1) The interface is definitely a little less than straightforward, especially for building/storing/retrieving custom tunings; 2) as others have noted, it's a little slow to find high E at times; 3) I wish there was a simple way to auto tune a single string to a specific pitch. Obscure example - we do exactly one song in Eb with drop D (so Eb goes to Db...) - it would be nice to be able to just detune the low E a whole step without having to access a custom tuning.

This could easily have been a hyped and overrated product but it's not. It actually works. I would have given it 5 stars if it wasn't because it's a bit slow on the high E string - also when the strings are new.

Bought the tune plus type C for my strat and absolutely love it. I can change tunings within seconds and it fit my headstock w/out any modifications required.

I'd been eyeing off a Tronical system for a while, and I finally got around to getting one for my Telecaster.
I'll admit, I was ever so slightly skeptical - i watched all the videos, and it seemed amazing, but I've been burned by overhyped and underwhelming guitar gadgets before.
However, all my doubts were firmly laid to rest. It was easy and fast to install. The whole install process took me approximately 15 minutes, and that was with me being cautious and triple-checking the instructions along the way (despite the fact that the instructions were clear and straightforward).
I play in two covers bands, we play songs in standard tuning, drop D, E flat, and sometimes all the way down in Drop A. The first time I jammed with the tronical system, it was a revelation. Why had I been bothering with manual tuning all these years? Why had I been annoying audiences with endless retuning breaks between songs all these years?? Even being able to quickly check/adjust tuning IN THE MIDDLE OF A SONG (during a quiet part, of course) is something you can do with this system. I even believe that the tuning accuracy is noticeably better than I would be able to achieve using a tuner pedal.
Seriously, if you're a working muso, this *will* change your life. A++. Five out of five stars.
Tronical: your system is unreal. Thank you so much. I just wished you had a bulk order discount, I have five other guitars to upgrade now!

It was like magic, Even the workers in music store had a smile on their face when I show them how my guitar auto tune works...

I recently purchased my third Tronical set, this time for an American Standard Telecaster. Obviously, having purchased sets previously for another Tele and for a Taylor acoustic guitar, I'm a fan and a believer in the product. What was noteworthy about this most recent purchase is the price - I paid about 80% MORE (happily, I might add) for my first Tronical (for the Taylor). When I learned the new set for my Tele could be had - including shipping and duties - for under $200 I was delighted, and when it arrived from Hamburg in about three days I was completely floored! I quickly recovered, placed the order, and all has been well since. The ability to quickly change tunings offers obvious facility in a live setting, but it really spurs creativity and interest when practicing, noodling and looking for inspiration. From my first experience with Tronical two years ago I have been left with the impression of a product that works precisely as advertised if simple installation and care instructions are followed. The web site, manual and accompanying support documentation are clear and self-explanatory. Purchasing, installing and using the Tronical system has been a wonderful experience for me all the way around. I could not be happier or more impressed with the product. Bravo! Now if they could just come up with a system for my slot-head Martin...!
