The Roadie automatic guitar tuner is an awesome tool for perfectly tuning your guitar, banjo, or ukulele in just a few seconds. Not only does Roadie function in loud environments, it’ll also tell you when your strings need to be changed. The Roadie tuner is definitely a lazy guitar hack, but it claims to be much more accurate than the human ear and is nonetheless a very useful guitar accessory for an amateur or intermediate player.

The puncher comes with a few pieces of plastic to get you started, but you can actually use ANY plastic card — a great way to recycle your expired driver’s licenses or best of all, hotel cards. Punching the guitar picks is so much fun that you’ll find yourself obsessing over finding the perfect plastic to use next.
