HAMBURG, GERMANY – December 20, 2013 – Tronical, creators of one of the most innovative guitar products ever made, proudly announces that the TronicalTune has been selected as a nominee for NAMM’s 29th Annual TEC Awards in the category of Musical Instrument Technology/Hardware. Tronical was also hand-picked by the Edison Awards Committee as a nominee for the 2014 Edison Awards in the category of Applied Technology. Both accolades are two of the most prestigious awards a company can receive in the name of innovation and technical excellence.

Check out TronicalTune in action:

“After nearly a decade of perfecting the TronicalTune, it is truly an honor to be recognized by such esteemed awards organizations.” said Chris Adams, CEO and founder of Tronical. “We are delighted to have already received the Popular Science Best of What’s New award, and look forward to the announcements of the winners for the TEC and Edison Awards in 2014.”

The TronicalTune is a revolutionary device for electric and acoustic guitars, alike, that seamlessly self-tunes your guitar in a matter of seconds, all while preserving the integrity and tone of your instrument. Automatic guitar tuners have always been expensive, hard to install, and complex to use; but the retrofitting TronicalTune makes installing and tuning virtually effortless. Tronical was recently named one of the top 100 technical innovations of the year by Popular Science Magazine, receiving the Best of What’s New award in November.

The 29th Annual Technical Excellence & Creativity Awards (TEC) ceremony is set for Friday, January 24. As the longest-running awards show that specifically recognizes outstanding achievement in product innovation and sound production, the TEC Awards are the professional audio industry’s most prestigious show.
