    Is the 2000 worth it over the 1000 for bass?
    Would you recommend the 1000 over a Boss TU-2 pedal?

    I had a DTR2000 the only difference is a few modes that I never used and the connectivity of it on the back. They are better than the Boss TU-2 but I ended up going with a Peterson Strobe O Stomp.

    The Korg DT-10 is also very popular I have one of those as well and it's very close to the Peterson when I A/B'ed them
  3. I A/Bed the 1000 and 2000 at a local shop and then decided I'd never use the extras on the 2000.

    Your mileage may vary, of course.
  4. The same here, I use the DTR-1000 to tune my bass, nothing more, nothing less.

    I like my TU-2 because its cheaper, can mute for tuning or not, don't have to walk over to amp to mute my sound.

    got an older dtr-1 or whatever

    great unit. it just tunes. no gimmicks
  8. The only usefull thing the 2000 has that the 1000 doesnt is a rack light.
  9. You don't really miss the open tuning settings and extra jacks. I am using the tuner out from my Trace Elliot GP12 into the back of my DTR-1000 so it works perfectly with my rack set-up.

    I have a 2000 and I love the added features - my guitarist can use it from the front jack while it's plug on my gear in the back. I can easily tune my bass from a low F# to high C. for the diff in $$$ I think it's worth it. My gear is a mesa 400+ with powerhouse 1000 cab, DBX 160A comp. so why not put the best korg with it...

    DTR1000 works fine so far. The features of the 2000 seem more like bells & whistles.

    I kept my TU-2 though, because some places to play up here already have a backline so I need something if I don't have my rack with me.

    Now that I have a rack tuner, I wonder how I lived without it. Sometimes when there's a few bands in a show you have to set up and break down quickly. Having the tuner in your rack is really nice in these cases.

    Thanks, notenslaved - I was going to link to that!

    It seems like this is the third time in a row this question has been asked in the span of a few weeks...

    Must be tuner season. :D
