Very simple question: which pedal tuner is the best
I'm personally a fan of Korg DT-10s that have been modded for true bypass.
After using a Boss TU-2 for years, I recently switched to a Korg Pitchblack. I like it a lot. If you're looking for more precise accuracy, the Peterson Strobostomp is a good call (there are other strobe-based tuners also, I believe).
I'm getting an Octavius Squeezer.
Apparently it does other stuff too, but I'll be using it primarily as a tuner.
i like my peterson ssII...but what's best for me isn't necessarily what you need...i prefer the display of the strobostomp over the other options i tried
I think the Boss TU-2 works very well. Built like a tank. It has a strobe option that almost no one uses as they think that it is just a regular tuning pedal. If you need that sort of accuracy, the strobe setting works perfectly and is very accurate.
The Boss TU-2 works for me. Tuner and mute which is nice. I also don't get the inaccuracy thing. I have used it to fine tune my bass and checked it with a "expensive strobe" tuner and it was right on.
The Turbo Tuner is the best: http://www.turbo-tuner.com/
It is better than the Strobostomp (which I have also owned) and cheaper than the Strobo as well, and not much more expensive than the Korg and Boss options.
a korg pitchblack is mighty fine.
I use the Planet Waves Chromatic Pedal tuner and i love it!
Lots of my friends use the Boss TU2 and love it..
I had an issue with very bright lights on stage in seeing the LEDs so i got the Peterson Strobostomp 2 and love it.. It is LCD display and is the best that i have used.. but it is expensive..
I'm going to get a turbo tuner to mount on my board permanently, and use my pitchblack for when I'm just messing around. All claims point to it being CLEARLY the best.
I actually have this one, though it isn't on my board at the moment. Solid tuner. Easy to see onstage and accurate enough.
How does on md the DT-10 for true bypass? +1 on the pedal, BTW. It's a price/performance champ, IMO.
I've had most of the stomp box tuners out there, and currently still have a Boss TU-2, Korg DT-10, and a Peterson Strobostomp...really like and use both the strobostomp and the DT-10...but am interested in the Turbo Tuner ST-200...
I had the pleasure and honor of hanging out with Rick Derringer at a show here in Dallas a few weeks ago, and he was using the ST-122, and loved it...he made a point of showing and telling everyone how it was the best tuner he had ever used...
Boss TU-2......pound for pound
The TU-2 does me fine. Nice big bright letters (important for ol' farts like me), indestructible, accurate. Also it can be used as a mute pedal on the occasions I use 2 basses at a gig.
