SWR RU-N2N Chromatic Rack Tuner vs Peterson, Sabine & Korg?

    So I have found a SWR RU-N2N Chromatic Rack Tuner online and it's going for about $120. Wondering how this compares to a Korg DTR-1000, Peterson Stroborack or Sabine rack tuners? Having a hard time finding anything more then the manual for the SWR. Also looking for something that has some lights usable for looks as well as tuning quality.

    The Korg & Peterson are both top quality units. I used a DTR-1000 for quite a few years.

    Sabine always fell short with their product. I never heard of the SWR unit.

    Personally, I'd go for the Korg. If you've got money to burn go for the Peterson.

    Peterson for sure.
  5. I loved my swr ru n2n(are you in tune?) Great looks, tracked down to low f#. The new fender rack tuners are pretty much rebaged swr tuners.
