okkkk so i need a tuner or tuner pedal, and i know that pedals don't work to well with modeling amps.

I have a vox ad15vt valvetronix

Im lookin at the boss tu-2 since i dont have much money and can find some cheap ones online.

How well would it work with my amp?

Tuners don't do anything to tone, so it wouldn't effect your sound with any amp.
'89 MIJ Fender Strat
Rivera S-120
'60s PEPCO Model 211 5w head
'60s Paul (Pepco) 1x12 tube amp
'60s Harmony H303a 1x10 tube amp

it won't affect the tone as long as it's 100% true by-pass (which almost every tuner is)

and the boss is only $10 more the the Korg. I've had both, and i prefer the Boss

No it won't affect your tone, effects pedals like chorus or OD don't work well with modelling amps

The AD30VT that I have takes pedals well.

Personally, i'd buy her a can of Coke, then as she's drinking it say to her "Whats better than Coca Cola?" She'll go "What?" and you shout "CREAM SODA!" And ejaculate in her can.

Actually the Boss tuner buffers your signal in a particular manner.
Many people hate the Boss pedal for just that reason.

reaaaaaaaallly sorry to bump this thread guys.

But how does it effect tone? Im about to buy one on ebay. I only have 65 bucks and on ebay or anywhere for that price i can't find a pitchblack

I'd get the Planet Waves chromatic tuner pedal. Deadly accurate and a BIG display. Around the same price, but IMHO a much better deal. The Boss tuner is one ugly pedal to boot.
Gear:

Is what some junkies refer to heroin as. For me it's just loads of wires and good sturdy housing, but just as addictive.

It won't affect your tone. Don't believe all the crap about 'true bypass', if you're using more than one or two pedals and a decent length guitar cable it's usually a very good idea to have a tone buffer somewhere in the signal path.
#13
Planet Waves all the way. Easy to read. Looks stylish. Pretty cheap, I can only say positive things about it.
#14
I'm happy with my TU-2. It doesn't do squat to affect my tone.
