    I'm one of those types who dives into any hobbie 100%. I like to learn everything there is to know and do as much as I can by myself.

    I've been noticing my bass's intonation is off... not horribly off.. but enought hat it is semi-noticeable. Unfortunately, neither of the tuners (BOSS TU-2 and Korg GT-7) I use are nearly accurate enough for me to get a solid reading on the intonation and adjust it properly.

    So I am wondering what the pros here use for adjusting intonation. I'm considering building a small 'workshop' for doing set-up, simple repairs, and such, so I'm looking at soemthing I'd buy for the long term.

    As far as I know Peterson Strobes are the standard of excellence.

    Anything with "strobe" in it works. The grandaddy Korg rack tuner for example is FAR more accurate in strobe mode than either cents or hertz mode.

    There's no question here. There is no doubt.

    The correct answer is-- Korg rack tuners. Take your pick among them, but Korg rack tuners is the correct answer.
