So hi once again.

I really need a pedal tuner for live performances and what is the best place than UG for these kind of questions?

So may you please suggest a pedal tuner for myself?

Korg Pitchblack will do the job. Inexpensive, true-bypass and accurate.

EDIT - I think that the TU-2 will work as a power supply though.

Korg Pitchblack


+1, I guess those are most obvious, Boss is good, decent priced and the most reliable thing in the world... Don't know too much about the Korg, but I've heard nothing but good things about it, so...

^hmm, never heard of the turbo tuner.

The only one I've had experience with is the boss pedal tuner. Good to use to daisy chain power to your other pedals with something like a 1spot.

And yeah...I need something that can handle batteries. DO these pedals ( the Korg and boss) handle them?

peterson strobostomp. expensive, but it has amazing tuning accuracy (possibly too much).

the sonic research turbo tuner looks really nice too, though i only know what ive read from looking it up just now. has good accuracy and looks durable, and the two guys who recomened it know what they are talking about.

the jpt-10, well i would probably pass on that one. doesnt list the tuning accuracy on their so its hard to know what you would be getting.

the pitchblack is what i would probably go for. under $100 and its got good accuracy. not as good as the turbo tuner or strobostomp, but better than the tu-2 and a lot of the other tuners out there.

Pitchblack for cheap, Peterson Strobostomp for expensive

I can vouch for the pitchblack though, works great on stage.

Planet Waves gets my vote. Looks sweet too.


I like to leave my tuner on all the time and my Planet Waves makes a digital noise when it's 'tuning". It's also impossible to see in sunlight.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

+1 for the pitchblack

tu-2 is less accurate and not true bypass. it costs more than the pitchblack too (in europe)

peterson strobostomp has awesome specs but i heared it breaks easily too (the stomp switch)

planet waves isnt true bypass

turbo tuner havent tried it but it has a reputation of being a solid tuner

pitchblack has a daisy chain out if that's your cup of tea, personally i run my pedals with an isolated power supply

also which of these pedals can you leave on while you are playing? Pretty sure TU-2 can but I didn't know if any of the true bypass models had this option.
#26
If he is like me... I always try and keep my tuner out of the chain so paying extra for true bypass and something that is 100% noise free might just have him barking up the wrong tree

True.

I bought the Pitchblack because I love the display modes. Avoiding all the bypass nonsense was a bonus.

I'm pretty sure all of them mute your signal. Why would you want the crowd to hear you tuning?

when I'm playing in my room I wouldn't mind just leaving the tuner on even if it would slightly effect the sound quality.

I say the Pitchblack. Good accuracy, fast tuning and great bypass. For the price it's a steal!

Korg Pitchblack. I own one and it whoops the Boss TU-2. It has many different modes including strobe, it has a large bright display, and it just feels like quality.
