    Anyone have any experience with the Gogo pedal tuner? It's got a huge display that is red when you're out and green when you're in. I ordered one from hello music because my 13 year old boss tu-2 died the other night. Couldn't pass up the $50 Gogo!

    Just wanna hear what you guys think if you own one.

    Hmm I read reviews on Sam Ash and everything was positive. 5 stars on all the reviews. I guess I'll have to wait and see.

    I have a couple of the head stock tuners from go-go that I am very happy with. They work fine and the display makes them easy to use. Initially I bought onefor 20 bucks to see and wound up getting a few more.

    And the size seems to be smaller than most pedals out in the market too. Accuracy is +-0.5, more accurate than the pitchblack. Price is almost half of the tc. Looks like a winner. To me. Now only performance is a question here

    My thoughts exactly! My guitarist has a pitchblack, and compared to my boss tu-2, I don't really care for it. I can't wait for my gogo to arrive! :-D

    I put a thread on here yesterday about my new pedal tuner - it's a Snark (company that makes the clip on headstock style tuners). The display looks to be as big as the Gogo - really nice and bright. I got it for $35/shipped brand new on Ebay, even came with accessories (planet waves 9v adaptor, a Fender 6" pedal cable, some picks, a batter). Only used it for one rehearsal, but it seems really nice! My lead guitar player has a GFS tuner, my rhythm guy has a Digitech multi effects with built in tuner, this tuner is much nicer than either of those.

    one comment on this though. if you want to have a fast responsive tuner, the gogo is not for you, they are a bit slow for my preference.

    I have the clip on and the pedal. I think the clip on does have a little delay to it. But compared to a boss tu-2 and a Korg pitchblack, I don't see any lag in my gogo pedal tuner.

    Reviving old thread - looking for a new pedalboard tuner.... The gogo looks interesting, but those who have one - it has no adjustable base pitch calibration right? Viz. It is set to 440hz.... I can't see any adjustable settings

    One of the other bands had one of these at an indoor gig I played last weekend. It was definitely highly visible to anyone with a view of the guy's pedalboard.
