    Probably a stupid question but I have a Boss TU-3 tuner and I know it does suck a little tone. If I attach it to the amp's tuner out instead would it still suck tone?

    short answer is no.

    I'm pretty sure that the tuner out on the PF500 (i have one) is a one way tuner out (does not loop back into the amp), its not like an FX loop, so when you want to tune, you hit mute on the PF500 and you do your thing, then kick it back out of mute and play away.

    hope that answers your question.

    But does it take the original signal and basically cut it in half. Half to amp and half to tuner out? If true then would this not be tone loss? I read before this was a issue with volume pedals with tuner outs.
