Behringer: TU300 Chromatic Tuner
0

Purchased from: ebay

Sound — 10
I use this pedal in my guitar and bass rigs with no problems in either one. The pedal is noise free and very bright so you can see it very good in the dark. There is a digital display that displays the note/string and a light on either side to indicate sharp/flat.

Overall Impression — 10
If this pedal were lost or stolen, I would definitely buy another one just like it to replace it. For the budget guitarist, Behringer stomp boxes are the way to go. Low price does not mean low quality. I really like the chromatic tuner mode. You can use that mode to tune to any tuning lower than a whole step down, becasue the pedal only has a built-in mode for a whole step down.

Reliability & Durability — 10
As with all the other Behringer pedals I own, this one has proven to be worth the money. I haven't had any problems with this pedal and it is very reliable. Most people talk down on Behringer because of their plastic construction, but don't be fooled, these pedals are very well-built and strong.

Ease of Use — 10
This is the upgraded version of the TU100 tuner pedal that Behringer makes. It has 7 different tuning modes: chromatic, guitar, guitar flat, guitar double flat, bass, bass flat, and bass double flat. Very easy pedal to use for both guitar and bass, and the flat and double flat modes make it easy to tune down to alternate tunings. It also has a bypass output jack.

    do you have the guitar plugged into it? some of my pedals don't turn on until i plug my guitar into it.

    Btw, this is exactly the same as the TU100, but costs more and has a blue led (Behringer wanted to make their prices higher...)

    double flat is two semitones i.e if you put it in double flat then it will tune your e to d its for putting your guitar into d tuning good for if you play in a metal band
