  • Pitchblack or Hardwire Tuner?

    I think I may retire my TU-2 soon. I want a tuner without a buffer in it (I'm getting a MI Audio Boost n Buff which has a full time buffer in it).

    The Pitchblack is popular and smaller. The Hardwire looks substantial, about same price, both true/hardwire bypass. I imagine the Turbo Tuner will get mentioned too, and I might, but it'll cost about $40-50 more. Not sure it's worth it, since I'm just a home player. Pitchblack still the one, or Hardwire?


    Edit, should I also consider the Polytune? Seems kinda cool, slightly gimmicky too.

      same decision here for me, except Turbo Tuner vs Pitchblack....home player too, and right now just using the tuner on my pod...so i guess anything is better than that...

          I would go the Pitchblack just because it's smaller.

                I did this very recently and gig pretty hard. I got the Planet waves chromatic tuner. It seems to tune a lot faster and more accurately than my old tu-2 did. It also has a display that you could see from the other side of a football field. True Bypass on top of all the cool extras of the tu-2. The OLDER PW tuners had a bad footswitch but the one I have is metal and not plastic and so it seems like at some point they made a revision and fixed it.

                  i really like my pitchblack, its tough, the display is awesome, and it's smaller than most tuners out there. the poly-tune and the new planet waves strobe tuner are awesome too

                      so you are going to replace a tuner with a buffer for a tuner without and then buy a MI Audio B&B to just use bypassed as a buffer? I don't follow your logic here... :idk:

                        Home player = your Boss tuner is more than fine.

                            Get a used pitchblack. Fine tuner.

                              The pitch black is a GREAT tuner.
                              I just picked up a Turbo Tuner for setups though.
                              If you don't setup your own gear the PB is a great option.
