I beg to differ. when your setting up a guitar you want it very accurate and a fast, steady needle that dosn't jump all over the place. Try out a nice peterson stobe tuner and compare that to a 15 dollar korg and then tell me tuners don't matter. I have had bad, bad experiances trying to set up guitars with dinky chromatic pocket tuners.

i hear the korg pitchblack is accurate up to like +/- 1 cent. i havent tried it myself. but i have the planetwaves pedal tuner. not bad. but for setting up, id say a desktop/tabletop tuner might be more ideal. dont have to worry about cables and such.

well, you seem to have all the knowledge you need. go and get a peterson or deal with a cheap korg one... get what you can afford.
Thank you please.

This tuner is one f musiciansfirend top 25 selling tuners and every reviwer gave it 5/5 stars. I havn't gotten a chance to play through one the, and I'm not a fan of buying unseen, untried. My GC dosn't carry them either. I just want to know if any one here has used one, and how did it do?

you can go middle of the road here and get something decent. the Korg ptchblack is very good for the price, so is the korg GT 120

the pitchblack is a pedal tuner though, right?


Buy one now so you don't have to later; a pedal tuner is one of the most useful pieces of equipment a gigging musician can have.

Yea theres definately a difference. I use to use some cheap 15$ tuner a while back, and you would pluck a string and you would get 3 different note readings. It was so frustrating. But then I got a Korg Ca-30 its very accurate and have not no problems with it. But as for that one I can't say. But i know korg can make some pretty nice stuff

I'm not a fan of the CA 30 either. I had one a few years back and it wasn't that accurate.

not to be an ass.. but on musiciansfriend, like every review for the line 6 spider gives it 5/5 stars.

seriously.. go see.

that's the reason I don't believe in reviews anymore.. I try everything out and if I like it I'll get it.. not according to what others say otherwise everyone would have a spider.
