    Not sure if it has true-bypass or not (but I'm not using it in that configuration anyway) ;-)

    I don't know that "the 33" is so, I guess the answer would be no. Or maybe if you tell me what "the 33" is, I should be able to confirm or deny! :smug:

    NVM if you were him you'd know. How fast is the tracking on it on low stuff?

    Thus far, I've only tuned down to a whole step on my 4's (D). Tracks FAST!

    Where did you find it? Most sites I've looked at say "pre-order" or "notify when in stock"?

    Definitely getting one of these to complete my rack. The cable tester is a nice feature to have on the gig too. What's not to love about this? Does the power cable have a big transformer?

    Transformer is not that big. I'd say medium size.

    Can you turn it off when not in use? I wouldn't want it brightly reading my playing behind me the whole time.

    Ugh! A transformer plug? I hate those! How is it/do you think it would be in direct sunlight? That's been a huge problem during summer day light shows with all other tuners, except for the Strobrack, which I still haven't gotten. Too cheap, I guess!

    Question: what are the specs of the transformer?

    I plan on getting this tuner to add in my 3-space shallow rack case with my VT Bass Rack preamp and GK MB500 with rack ears. Conceal a power strip in the rear of the rack with everything plugged in and wire tied together. Get to the gig and plug 1 power cable to the wall and rock out. Easy as pie and probably under 15 lbs. I don't use effects so I can get away with that.
