Does Roadie 3 work on instruments besides the guitar?

Modified on Tue, 05 Apr 2022 at 10:39 AM

Absolutely! Roadie also supports the ukulele, banjo, mandolin, and any instrument with guitar machine heads fitted with strings of gauge up to 75. 

Other instruments that can be tuned with Roadie 3 include the lap steel guitar, pedal steel guitar, dobro square neck, and dobro round neck.

However, please note that Roadie 3 does not work on Bass Guitars or instruments with a string gauge above 75 as it requires more torque (bigger motor) to rotate their machine heads. Check Roadie Bass for tuning bass guitars or other instruments with a string gauge up to 140.

In addition, Roadie 3 is unable to tune any instruments equipped with wooden friction pegs (such as the violin and viola). If you install planetary pegs on those instruments, Roadie will work normally.
