    Pros - Low battery consumption, tracks high notes fast
    Cons - Problems tracking the low B string, the simultaneous strings tuning doesn't work too well for bass. Adds noise into the signal chain (bypassed or not) if not using a filtered power supply
    Adds noise into my signal chain when I'm powering it with the same battery that I use to power the rest of the pedals. Works fine with a 9V battery though, that's how I've been using. I recommend a filtered power supply for this pedal.

    Doesn't track the low strings too well, switching to the multi string tuning when it fails to track a single string, which can become annoying sometimes.

    Overall, it seems to be a tuner more directed for guitar players than bass players.

    Pros - Accurate and bright
    Cons - Has trouble reading low bass notes.
    Great tuner. Nothing special. Decent build but power jack stopped working so had to wire it to the power supply via the batter connection. Has trouble reading bass notes depending on the tone you are sending it. Not a big fan of the "multi-string simultaneous" tuning.

    Pros - Fast, accurate, easy to read, lightweight
    Cons - Display seems like it might break easily but no problem so far
    I bought this because I was getting fed up with my old pedal tuner, which is really inaccurate and annoying - couldn't decide if the note was flat or sharp.

    The Korg pitchblack is fast, accurate, light weight, compact, easy to read. I've only tried it on a standard tuned 4 string bass but I've heard good reviews about it for 5 strings and drop tuning as well.

    Great tuner, easily read on the floor on show-lit stages.Fast and accurate, in a fairly stealthy little unobtrusive package.
