    I just picked up a GK 700RB II to go in my rack (cutting weight from my old rack) the GK has the tuner out on the front. What would be the best bet for a rack tuner that allows me to just plug a patch cord in the front and into the front of a tuner? I guess a clearer quetion would be what rack tuners have front inputs instead of rear inputs?

    Thanks

    Peace

    Hahaha I missed the absence of the 'r' in your previous post.
    I'd stay away from the Behringer. It's very slow in the low end, sometimes doesn't pick up on the lower notes at all (specially for 5-string basses) and tends to break down.

    I have the Fender rack tuner. Can't remember it it has front input or not, but it's got a cool blue lighted interface.

    +1 on the Fender Racktuner. I have the RT1000 and it mates up w/ my GK700rbII front to front.
     
  9. Yes I have the Fender Rt1000, and it looks cool and works great. It has both front and rear inputs. Mines looks great with the blue leds matching my Blue Nemesis NA650 with its backlit logo.

    I have the behringer one.

    Pros:
    Front and rear inputs.
    Really cool lights (a rack light ie 3 white LEDs pointing down to your other gear).
    Metronome and other stuff you probably don't need.

    Cons:
    It takes way too long to track a note, especially a low note. I wouldn't buy it again, however given how cool the lights are I'm not replacing it til something goes wrong.

    Do any of the other brands have a rack light built in? I'll keep that in mind next time I buy. (Hey a rack fan on a switch wouldn't hurt either)

    I had one of those darn things for about a half day before I returned it. IMHO, junk. Way too slow to track. Frustrating.

    My faves: Korg DTR1000/2000, Peterson, and the Fender.

    I currently have a DTR2000 and could not be any happier with it.

    I just bought a Korg dtr-1000 a couple weeks ago. Looks cool and works great. Tracks my low b-flat just fine.

    Do the Fender tuners read low B quickly?
     
  16. I use a Korg DTR-2 which works perfectly, handles the B string just fine, and has front and rear inputs. It's an older model, and can probably be had used for cheap...

    As I recall, yeah, not quite as well as the Korgs, but definitely well enough. Had I not found the deal I did on my Korg, I was ready to get the Fender, 'cause you can get them a lot cheaper.
