Peavey AT-200 Auto Tune Electric Guitar!! Pretty Snazzy!

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

So most people when they think AutoTune get this terrible look on their face and think of everything from Cher to almost all of the current pop music of today. Autotune has become a 4 letter word if you will to musicians. And rightly so, today a 18-year-old girl with so so vocal ability can sound killer with just a little auto tune. Now I have always been from the camp that auto tune and pitch correct are different things. Granted it’s the same technology but if I have a singer in here and he has a killer take but slides a bit flat and it doesn’t sound good, i’m all for correcting the pitch if it betters the song and doesn’t take a way from the delivery of the vocalist. But now it’s cool to see companies are branching out with this same tech.

Peavey introduced this year the AT-200 which is a guitar with Anteres auto tune built-in. What’s cool about this guitar is it allows the most screwed up tunings to be in tune and do the tunings you want. It understands bends, and allows for any kind of custom tunings. This is pretty slick for the weekend warriors playing in the local cover bands that don’t want to screw with multiple guitars or multiple tunings just to get through the night. And at the street price of $499 that could be pretty enticing for someone in that arena. I’m going to see if I can get my grubby mitts on one so we can get a good run of Gearzombiee videos out of it!! Because I honestly want to see if I can make it screw up!! Below is a YouTube link to the guitar and also a link to Peavey as well as Musicians Friend.
