OnBoard Research Corporation has now created the industry'sfirst wireless system with a receiver built into a pedal tuner. Thenew Intellitouch Freedom One is a digital wireless system forguitar and bass, providing a high-quality digital wireless linkbetween a guitar and a pedal tuner, eliminating the cable normallyattached to a guitar.
The Freedom One has two components: A compact wirelesstransmitter that plugs directly into a standard 1/4 inch outputjack on a guitar or bass, and a pedal tuner with a 1/4 inch outputthat connects to an amplifier or to other effects pedals. Whenusing the new Intellitouch Freedom One, the performer is free toroam away from their pedal board while playing.
The Freedom One's pedal has a built-in tuner with a largebacklit display that changes from red to green when in tune. Thetuner is automatic, chromatic, and displays the measured musicalnote on a large LCD screen for fast, easy tuning. The pedal alsohas a backlit footswitch that is easy to find on a dark stage. Thefootswitch turns on the tuner display and mutes the output whiletuning.
OnBoard Research is conscious of the environment, and recentlyreleased the industry's first rechargeable tuner. The Freedom One'spedal tuner also has a useful feature to save batteries - a backupinput jack for an audio cable, so that the pedal tuner can still beused without the wireless transmitter. If a user wishes to consumeno batteries while practicing, they simply plug the pedal into astandard 9v effect pedal power supply and connect an audio cablefrom their guitar to the extra input jack on the pedal. Thisfeature's purpose is for the environment and is not needed forperformance, as the Freedom One's transmitter squeezes anastounding 10 hours out of a single AAA battery.
The Intellitouch Freedom One model #WT1 comes with OnBoard'slegendary Limited Lifetime Warranty, and has a List Price of$149.95.
