Tascam TC-1S-Worlds first solar-powered tuner

The new Tascam TC-1S charges its battery from a bank of solar cells on the front panel, and a USB input is also available for quick-charging when you’re completely in the dark. It’s wrapped in a shock-proof silicon cover. The Tascam TC-1S has a built-in microphone as well as a 1/4″ input for guitar and bass tuning. Its lightning-fast pitch detection is displayed on a wide bargraph display for instant feedback. Four display modes are available, including fine pitch display, and the tuner can be calibrated to an external source.

The new Tascam TC-1S is available in six colors, and a strap and clip keep it charging all day long on your gig bag. The TASCAM TC-1S measures 96mm x 18mm x 40mm weigh 51g and will be available from select Tascam retailers in October 2010 for approximately $40.
