    Hey everyone...did a search but nothing came up. Any one have one of these, does it work well with a 5 string bass, any comments on accuracy? I need to replace my Boss tu2 tuner. The Korg is cheaper but that not really an issue with me. What do yall think?

    I am looking into this tuner as well. I have a perfectly working TU-3 tuner but it sucks tone so I hate it.

    While I don't have a 5er, I did replace my TU-2 w/a Pitchblack. I think it is definitely a better tuner on the whole.

    Hey ics1974...I have not noticed any tone suck with my TU2 when it was functioning...then again I am playing at high volume when on stage. When at home practicing I do not use it in line with my amp. I really liked the Boss but this is my third one..lol. Think I should try something else.

    I love my Pitchblack. Going on about 4 years with it and never a single problem. It's accurate enough that I even use it to set my intonation. Battery lasts forever, it's super durable and there have only been a couple times I've had problems seeing it onstage and those were outdoor gigs in full sunlight.

    Bottom line, would highly recommend.

    They just released the PitchBlack Poly, same price and a lot faster tuning.

    Pitchblack is the way to go, imo. Very accurate for live tuning and has never given me any issues.

    The only downside to the Pitchblack is the true bypass, you can't check your tuning while you play. Not a problem for me, I'd rather deal with that than tone suck.

    2 years now with my Pitch Black, still my favorite pedal tuner.

    2 years using one and no problems. I do a lot of pit orchestra work and being able to totally cut the signal is a cool thing. Built like a tank. A great product.
  12. I love mine. It's easy to read on a dark stage and it is accurate. You may struggle to read the face when it's in bright sunlight but that will happen to any led light.

    I've seen a few guys make a cardboard hood for the back and sides to block the glare on outdoor gigs.
