i currently have a korg ga-30 and i quite like it but i think it is time i look at changing it to a chromatic tuner. i am looking at getting a pedal tuner as i'm noticing that when i play my guitar seems to go out of tune, and i find it annoying having to unplug my guitar from my amp to tune it, and i think by having a pedal tuner it will be easier for me to tune. i have about €50, £45 or $75 to spend so any recomendations are greatly appreciated.

Yeah, Pitchblack all the way. Does the job with no problems, and it looks cool as well.
Fender Lite Ash --> TC Polytune --> Digitech Whammy V --> MXR Phase 90 --> EHX Small Clone --> Strymon Orbit --> TC Flashback X4 --> Rivera R55

Can't go wrong with the pitchblack. It's also got a power out so you can power your other pedals by buying a daisy chain cord. I recommend them highly.
If you start a reply with: I have never played one but I have heard good things about it! Your opinion is invalid.

any other suggestions as i may not be able to get hold of the korg, i know i can get hold of the boss tu-2

I would get the turbo tuner. It is a bit more money that the others, but way more accurate and easier to get precise tuning. For normal tuning the Pitchblack is OK, but for fine-tuning things like intonation, the turbo tuner is way easier to use. It picks up notes immediately and I find the display easier to get exact tuning.

Some argue that it is too accurate, that the fact that it is hundreds of times more accurate than a Korg or Boss is wasted money. I disagree, obviously you don't need every bit of that accuracy, but it is easier to set/fine tune and I definely noticed a difference in setting the intonation with this over my boss tuner.

Others have had similar experiences...

There is a reason professionals use strobe tuners.

Peterson Strobe tuner adapter cord and app for my iPhone cost less than $25. Works with iPod touch too. Best tuner I've ever used at any price. (iPhone haters spare me the flames)

A strobe tuner is like 40 bucks more than that Korg.

$99.00

vs.

$199.00


I'm no math major but I believe that's a $100.00 dollar difference. And yes that is a lot of money to some people.

Well sir, if you took the time to follow the link I posted when I recommended the turbo tuner, you could have saved yourself the trouble of posting. I used 89 bucks as the price of the Korg, as if you look around, you can buy it for that.

Now, go here http://www.turbo-tuner.com/.

Now re-engage your math brain.

You will see that my $40 figure was accurate.


Thanks !

Oh, and you can recoup that 40 bucks when you realize that you can now set-up your guitar quite well without taking it to a shop.
