I have a polytune on my board and it works great for fast tuning in a band with good visibility.

I'm looking for a tuner to use mostly for intonation. Just want something more accurate than my polytune for that. Headstock/pocket/pedal tuner. As long as it tunes accurate. Doesn't have to be that durable since it will probably never leave the house and used sparingly.

I see used Turbo Tuners for 100 bucks. Is there anything more/as accurate for less money? If I go that route I guess It might as well replace my polytune

I like the Snark headstock tuners.

almost any modern tuner will do the job, they are all measured within +/-.5 cent of true tuning.

nope. turbo tuner is the most accurate tuner on the market. and it's priced very reasonably.

the +/-.5 cent i'm fine with for regular tuning but I saw a video on YouTube where the TurboTuner with the +/-.2 cent just killed the polytune.

I guess what I'm asking is if there is a +/-.2 cent tuner out there cheaper than a TurboTuner. I don't like the idea of setting intonation with a +/-.5 cent tuner when I can get something more accurate.

PolyTune 2 has +/-0.1 cent accuracy.


wow you are definitely right. And I've been using that mode all along.

I might just be making a fuss over nuttin. tuner GAS is all it is. Must suppress it.

I've been turning my tone knob all the way down and using the neck pickup when tuning; it removes the overtones and leaves the fundamental note. I can get right in tune pretty quickly doing that.
