    Alright I'm looking for a racktuner. I've looked at several and have figured out what I want. I really want lighting. Something I can see from afar and can set to put on a lightshow. here are a few I've looked at:

    Peterson Stroborack - If I can get one for a good price I might be convinced. Though the video's I've watched the strobing message screen is too small and not colourful enough to give me the visibility I want.

    Korg DTR 1000/2000 - I believe these have a strobe setting to put on a light show and can catch a bass signal. Reasonably priced and does what I want (I think)

    SWR RU-N2N - I just love everything about it. easy to see, bright, puts on a light show and the name is nice "Are you in Tune?".

    Behringer - I just don't Like Behringer. Too many QC problems from what I hear. Also gear techs in my area refuse to deal with Behringer because of it.

    Fender - I know the SWR model is the one put out after Fender bought them. I havn't seen any of these but I'm not really a fender guy anyway.

    Anything else people can suggest?

    So I found a Korg DTR-1 in my region and am quite happy with what I have.

    I had 2 DTR-1s. Both worked great and were accurate, easy to use etc., until... Both times the tuner was in my amp rack with my GK800RB. Everything functioned properly and everything. I finished a gig with no trouble, packed and went home. Next gig, tuner was dead. No sparks, no smoke, no nothing. I just shut it off and it never woke up again. I never figured out why. I loved that tuner, but it went boobies up on me twice, 2 separate units, about 8 months apart.
  5. Any korg where the note selection lights up
  6. And I wouldnt be too worried about putting on a show.... some tuners can get a little obnoxious looking
