There are few ways to tell the two apart:
- First, on both PolyTune versions, the name says only "PolyTune". No difference at the first look. But if you look better, on the first version the Classic (or 1), it says "poly-chromatic tuner" below "polytune", while this text doesn't appear on PolyTune 2.
- The 2nd thing to look for, is the brand. It only says "tc electronic" on the first version, whereas the PolyTune 2 features both the TC logo and "tc electronic" name.
- 3rd: the foot switch is different. The classic PolyTune has a switch with small height and "click" when you push it - PolyTune 2 has a higher foot switch without click, just a little release.
Below, you will find some pictures which show the differences :
