I've been reading up specs of tuners and I have become slightly confused by what might be unneccessary (to me) or over complication in the description of the particular model.

I'd like an answer from someone who is in the same boat as me - bassist and guitarist in live bands but an answer from someone who is well informed would be appreciated just as much.

It must:
Tune a 6 string electric guitar
Tune a 6 string acoustic guitar (built in mic)
Tune a 4 string bass guitar
Have a metronome (not bothered about how complicated it gets or speeds)
Be able to take a good beating
Be accurate
Have lights indicating tuning accuracy (that are visible in the dark)
Have pitch reference sounds
Be able to do go down to DGCFAD (just incase)
Be easy for an imbecile like myself to use

Please tell me what you can reccomend from experience.

Korg DTR 2000, but this is really only useful if you want a rack.
Yamaha TRB1006
Fender MIA jazz bass
Hora Hybrid double bass
Hartke lh 500
Ev 606L
Epiphone les paul
A rack isn't in my budget (sadly).

I checked out the TU but didn't see the 1000 model. An earlier version says it can tune a six string bass but what about a four string?

It probably sounds obvious that it can but with technology I always manage to find compromises made whereever there's something that I don't need. Still looking for something that will do the job.

I don't even know if the TU series has an input for tuning like that as opposed to pitch ref.
