Throughout each day at Summer NAMM (held between July 11 and 13 at the new Music City Center), there will be scheduled contests between contestants pitting their human dexterity in tuning a standard guitar against Gibson’s Min-ETune™ technology, which tunes the strings to standard or alternate tunings electronically. Gibson will give a guitar to anyone who can “beat the robot,” but even if no one beats the Min-ETune, anyone who tries will be entered in a drawing to win a premium Gibson guitar with Min-ETune, as well as receive a set of Gibson strings.
Can you beat the robot? Stop by booth #1526 to find out, as well as to experience the latest exciting products from Gibson Brands.
Gibson’s Min-ETune is a novel, compact “robot tuning” system that lets guitarists spend more time playing and less time tuning. The battery-powered Min-ETune (80 to 100 tunings per charge) mounts unobtrusively on the back of a guitar’s headstock, and is invisible from the front. Simply choose from 12 popular tunings or six user-programmable custom tunings, push a button, and strum—within seconds, the guitar is tuned. Min-ETune-equipped guitars can also be tuned manually. Ambient noise levels don’t matter, because Min-ETune senses string tension. Min-ETune is currently available for eleven Les Paul and SG-style guitars, from Traditional to Future Tribute models.
