Half rack tuner?

    Does anyone know of a decent tuner that fits in a half rack space? I've heard of the Boss TU-50, but it seems not to be made anymore. I'd like to mount a tuner next to my half space Sennheiser wireless receiver rather than go to a bigger rack...

    Thanks,
    Mike

    There's a TU50 on ebay right now (4 days left).

    I used to own a TU-50 and it was a great little unit, until it got stolen.
    When you don't use the tuner, LEDs act as a vu-meter so the funky-geek factor is high on this one.

    I don't know why nobody offers one, but that TU-50 is the only half-rack tuner that was ever made. Boss also made the VF-1 multieffects that had a built-in tuner and was half rack in size.

    The Boss was the only half-rack unit I've run across. I'm a little surprised no one else made/makes on either.

    Anybody know if there's a rear input jack on the TU-50? There's a jack on the front left, but I can't tell what it is.

    Wish I could help you, but I gave up my search for a TU-50 and bought a VF-1. The VF-1 has both front and rear jacks. Of course, the VF-1 is much more expensive than a TU-50, but for live shows I found that its effects were adequate to eliminate my pedals.
