I figure it wouldn't be a bad idea to invest in a good pedal tuner before I start gigging. Im on a pretty low budget, maybe 60 bucks max. The Planet Waves ones I saw looked pretty good, I need something rugged, I've seen tuners that look like they would fall apart if you stepped on them. And I want to be able to preserve as much tone as possible.

if you expand your money, i'd definetly suggest the Boss TU (i thing thats what it's name is)

I just bought the Boss TU-2 tuner like 2 minutes ago off the internet. Its supposed to be good, and since its a boss im suspecting its going to be extremely rugged. The main reason i went Boss is because it can power your other boss pedals and i have another so thats handy. Im not sure if that affects you but....

It's chronomatic so it tells you the exact note that's being played(if thats what you meant)

Aparntly the Behringer tuner pedal is just as good as the Boss tuner except that it's plastic not metal. It's alot cheaper too 40 AUD (dunno what that is in USD)

Boss TU-2 or the Planet Waves. Planet Waves seems more solid and it true bypass. Easier to see in my opinion. I got it because it was cheaper than the Boss and I am very happy with it.

Sorry to let you down, but it can't. All it does is act as a large daisy chain.

Was gonna suggest that one as well. Been using one for the past year now and it's a great little pedal - rugged, and very accurate tuning.

The fender tuning pedals are great. I don't have a PT-100...I actually forget the exact model, but its held up for years and is a very reliable pedal. I bought it new for $40. Honestly one of the best values I have ever gotten.
