Boss TU-3. Really bright, fast, nice looking meter, and most importantly, it has a good buffer in this day when all the marketing rage is "true bypass".

All that said if I had to go do it again and get something different I'd get a Korg Pitchblack, no qualms.

I have the polytune as well - excellent pedal, although I bought it thinking the 'tune all 6 strings at once' mode would be more useful. Turns out it's only useful for getting you somewhere close to being in tune while new strings are setttling in. Other than that, you're always in single string mode for accuracy - it's spot on for that though.

I couldn't be much happier with my TU-3. My bassist has a Pitchblack though and that's really cool. If I had my time again I might go polytune

To be honest, they're all much of a muchness

My brother got me the pitchback for x-mas a few years back. I think he got it on sale for like 50 or $60. Still works soild. I have no complaints. I've used the boss as well. They're all pretty standard tuners IMO. As long as it light up, and I can see what sting I'm tuning, I'm good.

pitchblack. i have two of the standard, and one of the poly pitchblacks, i don't like the poly one though. i have three because one was 'missing' for a while and it was a $40-$50 or flash sale, so thats two, and MF had a flash deal on the poly for $40. then the other was returned to me. so i have three.

but i like the pitchblack the best. i can always see it. works great for me. i like the half strobe mode a lot.

Got the TU-3 for a few reasons...

One, I needed it as a buffer...
Two, works awesome under bright sunlight...
Third, I have a huge pedalboard, but dont bring it around for every gig, so I take a couple pedals
with the TU-3, and use it to power up the pedals....
Fourth, of course it's accurate as well...

pitchblack has power out as well. i haven't really tried it. as of late if i am gigging metal, i will bring the splawn nitro or promod (both KT88), and it has a boost (another volume knob to set higher) via the footswitch as well OD1 OD2. they don't need anything up front. so then i have no pedals and just bring a snark. they don't work really well at extreme volume, but you can tune between songs.

I use a PolyTune 2. I switched over from using Boss which was a lot slower. The screen is MUCH bigger and brighter too. Never use the polyphonic mode. Just strobe which is claimed to be +- .1 cent.

Thinking about swapping over to a Turbo Tuner. I like how you can tune an acoustic really quick with the built in mic.
