I've been thinking about the pedal board I eventually want to own and I want to include a tuner stomp box, most of the other pedals I get are probably going to end up being boss but can the £55 price tag of the boss TU-2 really be justified? It seems really expensive for something that is just a tuner?

I received one for Christmas so I can't vouch for the price, but it is an excellent tuner.

I got mine on craigslist for a bit cheaper than retail. I actually don't really like it for bass because I go to Drop D for about half of my bands usual set and the tracking time on the tuner is a little slower than I'd like. I'd say go with a used Korg rack tuner. The TU-2 is great for guitar, but it responds a little slow on bass.

Although I've never owned one, pedal tuners have always seemed frightfully useful. However, the Boss' price tag is pretty hefty, I'm sure there are cheaper ones.


I believe behringer do one for an alright price, can their pedals be trusted?

No.


Ah ok How about Ashdown pedals? I'm not sure if they do a tuner but I like the look of their pedals.

I don't think they make a tuner but their pedals seem to be pretty nice. I'd check out Korg floor and rack tuners. It's not that the TU-2 is bad, I just get super impatient onstage and get pissed when something takes longer than I want it to.

A little picky are we? I have this tuner and my band plays in drop D, works perfect. Boss is awesome, this tuner is great. Built like a tank aswell.

Why? It's a tuner, there's not a whole lot that can go wrong.

Really? I have a really cheap tuner and it's served me extremely well. It was about the same price. Did you check the batteries?


I tried it again after the gig and it started working , it may well have been the batteries or more likely a bad cable, I can't really remember. It's served me well since but I still don't trust it .

It's made by Behringer, I wouldn't trust it. Most of the reviews on it say its a tone sucker, so it's definitely not true bypass. It has a plastic case.

Hm I think I might just pick up an extra cheap tuner or something in that case I want to play with some fun effects before I start getting the boring stuff like tuners .

^ I actually use it in my effects chain like that when I play shows on acoustic guitar.

IDK. Personally I'd rather spend the money on something quality instead of something thats junk and wait for it to break or realize its not working in the situation; then have to buy something good. I am a certified tone nazi though...

You all are forgetting that you can also use the Boss Tuner as a power supply. That might be what jacks up the price a bit.


So you plug an AC adapter into the TU-3 and it can power all your other pedals? If so that sounds like a very worthwhile purchase, I hate batteries.

An AC adapter then a daisy chain cord. It works pretty well. It powers pedals that use the Boss 9v barrel plug.
