tuners

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Youngspanion, Dec 13, 2005.


  1. I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to post this but I'm wondering about tuners. All the guitar players have them when I get up to The Studio to jam. I usually ask one of them to give me an open E and then I tune up, but I want to get one myself. Any recomendations for one?

    Boss TU-2.


    As good as all of the other tuners are this is still the best one available IMO. I have a Peterson and a DTR-3000 and yet my TU-2 comes everywhere with me.
     
  3. I have a Korg CA-30.

    It's very good.

    I also like the Boss TU-80, it's a tuner and metronome in one box.

    ;)

    both of the tuners above are cheap, simple, and effective.
     
  4. +1. Got one myself and the two guitarists in my band followed soon afterwards. Quick, clearly visible, usual bomb-proof Boss pedal construction, tracks great down to the 5th (some tuners have trouble with very low freqs). There's cheaper but this is worth every penny I think.

    You should do a search, this topic has been beat to death.
    Do you want a hand held, a pedal or a rackmount? You can spend a little or a lot, how much do you have in mind?
