    What's the best tuner? I'm looking for a single space rackmount. Relatively cheap. I like the Korg dtr1000, but I've heard the components used in it are very cheap. What do yall suggest?

    If you want the top of the line - buy a Peterson strobetuner although they're pretty expensive and takes up 2 units in your rack. But it is without a doubt the best tuner money can buy.

    Otherwise look for Korg, Sabine ( Yamaha ?? ) they all make 1 unit rack tuners.

    You're the second person to mention the peterson tuner. Thanks for the input. I definitely want a single space unit. Maybe I should rephrase my original post to "what is the tuner that is reasonably well constructed and a good value for the money"

    Korg DTR-2. Discontinued, can be had for about $100.00 and tune VERY accurately.
