We were previously blown away by the Roadie 3 automatic guitar tuner – a device the size of a bar of soap that will wind your strings to the correct pitch. However, not content with innovating in the tuning world, the firm is now setting its sites on helping musicians to improve their technique with its nifty new box, the Roadie Coach.

The multifaceted Coach is a device that you mount on your guitar while practicing. It has a number of useful functions, including audio recording and the ability to act as a MIDI controller, but it's primarily designed as learning aid, offering feedback to players and helping them improve their tone and technique.
