As the subject indicates, I have done a search on this forum, and wow, there have been a lot of threads on tuners! However, after reading through these, I do have some (hopefully more focused) questions. My first thought was to get a rack tuner, as I have an open space in my rack, and I wanted something easy to see on a dark stage. I currently use a handheld Boss TU-12 (which really works great), but it is fairly small, and not too visible unless I get up close to it. So, my first question was going to be "Korg or Sabine", but from the other posts that I have read, it sounds like Korg is the way to go, if I take the rack route. Then there was this business about the Boss TU-2 pedal. While the merits of having it in front of you (no turning around), and the ability to leave it in my Pedaltrain board (and therefore available even when I leave my rack rig at home) are attractive, I do worry somewhat about the cumulative effect of having my signal run through yet another pedal (and one without a true bypass, at that). I know that several of you have mentioned that it does not suck your tone, it does have a possibility of affecting my tone, whereas a rack tuner being sent a signal from my Navigator's "tuner out" does not even have the opportunity to do so. So, I was hoping that you kind folk could either allay or confirm my fears with regard to any effect on tone. My next question is, can the Boss TU-2 continue to track your notes as you play (without muting the signal or sucking the tone out of it), and if so, how easy is it to read? One thing that I liked about a rack tuner is that if I feel like I might be out of tune, I could just glance back at my rack, and not have to mute my signal to check a tuner. The other nice thing is the big display on the Korg tuners. I imagine that they would be fairly easy to read. But, if that little Boss pedal can do all of the above, it may be hard to beat. Thanks in advance, Tom.
