    Who makes good ones? My guitarist uses a Korg DT-10 and I was wondering if they made such a pedal in bass form... or could I just use the guitar version?


    If there's not a Korg bass version of it, does another company make one with similar features?

    Always liked the Boss TU-2 myself.
     
  3. I second that. Great for the low B string and doesn't effect tone or dynamics to my ears.
     
  4. TU-2. Use it in strobe mode. Love it. Cheap money and plentiful. Has onboard mute while tuning (if you dummy plug the second output)

    You want a PEDAL right? Almost any guitar tuner pedal will work OK for bass. Korg in fact just came out with one...I've always had great results with Korg tuners.

    Another vote for Boss TU-2. I run mine off the tuner output of a GK 700RB head. Can press the tuner mute button for silent tuning that way, don't have to wonder if the tuner is affecting my tone, which I think it does a little bit.

    Peterson StroboStomp/DI, true bypass...use it with the bass temperament.
     
  8. Tried both the Boss TU-2 and the Peterson StroboStomp, I personally prefer the StroboStomp. It's more accurate being a strobe tuner plus it doubles as a DI box, but that may be going off topic here :p
     
  9. Vote for the boss tu-2 here. My 2 guitarists use the korg, I prefer the boss. Best 100 bucks I have ever spent imo.
