    What, in everyone's opinion, is the best rack-mount tuner available? One that will tune bass frequencies, specifically a low B, fast and accurately?

    I recently moved my amp and a compressor into a rack and I have one space left. I have a small Korg tuner but it is very difficult to read under stage lights and the low B is difficult to tune with it, so I usually end up tuning it by ear the rest of the way.

    Any suggestions?

    I like the tuner on my Zoom 506 bass effects pedal thingy a lot. You hit a note and it shows you in red LED lights what note it is.

    i use the korg dtr-1 for my basses, and it tracks well down to a low F#, below low B, believe it or not.

    Is the Korg dtr-1 rack mountable? I am not interested in any foot pedal types...only rack mount tuners.

    Also, we tune down a half-step and it is important that I can easily read the half-step down. Is it easily read or adjustable to compensate?

    yes, it's rackmountable.

    you can tune to any note you like - it displays the closest note you're trying to play, and how far sharp or flat you are.
