Zero Crossing, Makers Of The N-Tune Onboard Chromatic Tuner, Announce OEM Partnership With Dot On Shaft Guitars New Dot On Shaft Carparelli S3 Models Now Feature N-Tune Chromatic Tuners Onboard
Zero Crossing, makers of the innovative N-Tune Onboard Chromatic Tuner, have added a new OEM partnership with Canadian guitar maker, Dot On Shaft Guitars. Beginning in November 2008, Dot On Shaft's Carparelli S3 models will feature the N-Tune Chromatic Tuner onboard. Previously, Zero Crossing/N-Tune struck an alliance with Bennett Guitars, a division of Samick, with the launch of its Greg Bennett Avion AV-3 T CS guitars.
Dot On Shaft's Carparelli S3 models are comprised of an AAA Mahogany body, Maple tops and Rosewood fingerboards with set-neck construction and 25" scale. The Carparelli S3 also features Dot On Shaft's bridge/neck pickup configuration and Carparelli Custom Hand-wound Humbuckers. And of course, the N-Tune Onboard True Bypass Chromatic Tuner onboard! MSRP (U.S.): $1,399. http://www.dotonshaft.com/
One of the most convenient solutions for fast, accurate tuning, the N-Tune Onboard Chromatic Tuner installs underneath the volume knob of most guitars and basses, offering on-the-spot tuning anywhere, anytime. Just pull the knob to silently tune up in seconds; then just push it back down to play. N-Tune is a favorite of pro touring bands and musicians—from Panic at the Disco and N.E.R.D. to George Clinton and the Robert Randolph Band—and recently received a 2008 "Rig Ready Award" from GuitarGearHeads.com®. http://www.ntune.com/
"Just when we thought we'd improved our guitars to the max, we found one of the coolest products on the market, the N-Tune tuner," raves Dot On Shaft founder/CEO Mike Carparelli. "The N-Tune tuner is something I had always wished for and now it's a dream come true: a built-in tuner, right in my guitar's volume pot! How cool is that? Our customers are going to love the fact that when they buy our Carparelli brand guitars, they will be equipped with the N-Tune already installed. No more hassles of finding a tuner!"
"Similar to our partnership with Greg Bennett Guitars and Samick, the Dot On Shaft guitars with N-Tune onboard will offer their players great added value—plus a very practical tuning tool available within reach," says Sam Sudore, Zero Crossing President and CEO. "We believe 100% in our product's usefulness as a tool for any player and Mike Carparelli's enthusiasm and willingness to partner with us, only further confirms our conviction!"
