Well, almost. Behringer rack tuner does not even track drop D guitar, not to mention bass. I also had a Fender pedal tuner that did not track E string on bass. Out of these, I'm sure I could go with any. Still some features make tuning easier and faster (especially important at live situations) and when I buy something I want to be damn sure it is going to tolerate me stepping on it all the time. The plastic clip on my CT04 already broke - the same thing happened with my badnmates same tuner, so I think this definitely is a reliability issue.
