  • Tuner recommendations?

    I'm kind of tossed up between the Turbo Tuner and something by Peterson, anything out there that you like better or anything about either of these two that you don't like? I like the idea of something that I can do intonation with and am interested in tempered or sweetened tuning even though I am not that up to speed on it.

    To my understanding, the Boss TU-2 stomp box is pretty much the industry standard. My $40 Rocktron pedal tuner works just fine for me though

      I like my Peterson StroboStomp a lot, but you should be aware that the Petersons have some quirks. I would recommend against them for stage use; the strobe display can sometimes be a little hard to read as it bounces around, not what one would want onstage, I would guess. The StroboStomp can have a lot of trouble resolving the signal from the high E--you have to turn the volume all the way up and use the neck pickup to get a reading. I would strongly recommend against a Peterson if your guitar has only a bridge pickup (assuming that this problem with the high E is an issue with the Peterson design, rather than just a quirk of the particular unit I have). The accuracy is great, but it does come at the cost of more cumbersome operation.

        I used a Conn Strob Tunner for Years and Years, then everyone started going with the Stomp Box Tuners. I added the Boss TU-2 to my pedal board. It's been pretty cool to be able to tune inbetween songs without having to, un-plug and plug into the Strobe.
        It is finiky sometimes, and I havn't figured out the whys yet.

          I been using a Fender PT-100 for a couple years now without a issue. The Strobes are great for home though like the Peterson? Great Strobe. But for my signal path the Fender is great. I see it very well and its acurate.

              My $19 Berringer pedal tuner works great for a cheap one. It does eat a 9volt every third gig, though.

                        How about the Pewaves JPT-10, anyone tried one of those out? I can't seem to find any real specs on it.

                        It also appears that the turbo tuner is the only 'true' strobe tuner; the others are virtual strobe tuners. What the difference is I have no idea.

                          I use a Peterson VS-1 all the time while gigging and it works great. It also is accurate enough to set intonation. It works just fine on a bridge pickup. In fact, it seems to work best on the bridge pickups of my strat and 335s. I can see it just fine on stage. The newer ones with the blue lighting are even brighter. I have no complaints with it other than it's a bit big.

                          I bought it before they came out with the Strobostomp, and it does not have a hardwired bypass. I use a Morley ABY if I'm playing outdoors so I can tune silently and quickly between songs if needed. I don't bother when playing indoors because my guitars stay in tune just fine and I check them between sets.

                          I would not hesitate to buy a Strobostomp or VS tuner. I don't know anything about the competing tuner shown above, though.

                              This really cannot be emphasized enough.
