I own a Korg Pitch Black and my other guitarist uses a T.C. Poly Tune. Both are great but if I had to pick one, I'd go with the T.C. Poly Tune - just for the fact that it has a mode where you can see and adjust the tuning of every string simultaneously.

^see, i feel like the actualy multi-string tuning is a bit gimicky. and ive read quite a few reviews where people say it is off by about 1/4 step (and overall its less accurate). even if i went for the polytune, i dont see myself using that feature much.

i probably plug into my pedalboard the majority of the times of the time i play, and ive been jamming with people more lately, hence looking for a pedal. its not going to replace using my phone or pocket tuner or computer apps, its just going to supplement them. thanks for the suggestions though.

i believe it was your comment in another thread that had me start looking into the turbo tuner. glad to hear its still working great for you, that actually helps. how is it seeing the lights for the strobe in different lightings, if you dont mind me asking? its just something i havent seen any comments on, and getting it from someone who has used it would be nice.

thanks for all the comments guys. still not sure about the strobe. ill probably sleep on it a day or so and then decide what to get. so if anyone has any more words of wisdom...

I've never tried the TT, but I'm a Pitchblack user and I love mine.

I gig out a lot, and it's been in every dusty old bar and stage, been stepped on , had input cable stepped on (broke the plug on the cable and did nothing to the tuner), and overall just stood up to everything that's ever happened to it over the course of 4 years or so. Still alive and going strong.
