    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.

    I know this thread was started a while ago, but any updates on the GOGO Tuners performance? How is the accuracy? And is it slower in finding the note compared to the Korg Pitchblack and Boss tuners?

    Thanks!

    I also interested in a review of this. Also anyone know the best tuner for both bass and guitar.

    The Korg Pitchblack reference presses a button for me. :)
    Years ago, so many people here said it was so great, so I followed like a lemming and got one.

    It was the worst digital tuner I have owned. Not nearly as accurate as people here claimed.
    It also died for me after about a year or so.

    The most accurate affordable tuner I have used to date has been the tuner inside my Zoom pedal.
