      Yep. I use it regularly. I comes to my acoustic and electric shows. My only beef is its size and weight. I can see why the Pitchblack would have appeal when compared.

          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...



          I see your point. My main reason for selling the TU-2, is that I have had some issue with how the buffer in it interacts with some fuzz I have. Not sure it's the culprit, but pretty sure.

          I want the Boost n Buff because a)I want a standalone booster pedal, and it seems awesome for the price b) it has a good buffer as opposed to a bad one, so there's that. I'm not getting the BnB just because it's a buffer, that's kind of an icing on the cake thing.

            Home player = your Boss tuner is more than fine.


            Yes, normally I would agree. Ive tuned with a pitchpipe before. But as I mentioned, the buffer in it, has sometimes messed with my fuzzface pedals, not exactly sure why. Ive heard the TU-3 has a significantly better buffer in it, so that my also be a good solution. But then if I decide to still get the Boost N Buff, I would have 2 buffers, and not sure I need that. Maybe have one at the beginning of the chain, one at the end. But I won't have more than 7-8 pedals from now on.

              Yeah, there's that. I think highly of the Hardwire series, but they are beefy pedals for sure.

                Pewaves JPT-10. http://www.pewaves.com/products/Guitar%20Pedals/JPT-10 or http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p3907.m570.l1313&_nkw=pewaves+t uner&_sacat=See-All-Categories

                Same specs as the Pitchblack. I was concerned about reliability with it being so cheap but I've had it three years now.

                  Is there typical ratio of pedals and buffers you should have? I got 6 pedals on my board all true-bypass.

                    ah, I see.... seems a good idea.

                    although saying that I really dislike my Pitchblack, as soon as I can afford something else it's going. It's works fine but I just hate it!

                      What about it do you not like? I've never been sold on it for some reason. Seems a little toy like? The Hardwire is a tank, the Polytune seems pretty slick, although user reviews seem a mixed bag.

                        Firstly exactly that... it is toy like, it's very light, the bottom is made of plastic, it has those plastic jacks with the 'pretend' nuts and it just feels very cheaply made compared to the DT-10 or TU-2, I also hate the fact I can't choose if I want it to mute the signal, it's on, it's muted... no choice. I just don't like it much, like I said... it tunes fine, but as soon as I have the money I'm getting a TU-3 and getting rid of this... I'm not over keen on the display either to be honest, it just doesn't feel like it will last very long.. although I may be proved wrong on that.

                            I can see where this makes sense. If I was gigging much I would defiantly go with boss tuner. For a bedroom wanker like my self the PB gets it done.

                              I downloaded the Polytune app for iphone when it was free - works well enough that I am actually considering buying the pedal.
