    Can anyone recommend inexpensive hand held tuner for bass, guitar, and acoustic instruments?

    Lost mine somehow... a backlight would be nice for gigs where I don't bring my rack tuner setup. Should have a mic to tune acoustic only stuff (like an upright)...

    The Korg tuners rule. Mine picks up the low "B" better than any other tuner I've ever used.
  4. Boss TU-80 assuming they still make them, had mine a couple of years, better than what I had before and no complaints.

    Sabine STX-1100. It's the tuner I currently use and it's the best (meaning most accurate) I've used personally. Has a microphone for acoustic, brass, woodwind, even voice. And it's chromatic, so you can do funky tunings. It lives on top of my amp 24/6 (even a tuner should get a day off). It's not "cheap" but it's certainly affordable. Should be the last tuner you need to buy.
  6. +1 on the Sabine.
