Sound Quality
I am using this on a pedal board with a Mission Engineering Volume Pedal and various other pedals. I use a Carr Rambler or a Fender DRRI amp. I use various guitars. Most have BFTS. The Gibson I use does not. It is very easy to switch back and forth between standard and BFTS. This is another place I think the Turbo Tuner has it over some of the others. Peterson has LCD screens to go through. On the Sonic you push a button twice and watch which setting lights up. Takes maybe 2 seconds to go back and forth. THis is a very strong tuner. By that, I mean it picks up the signal very fast, with out hesitation. As far as getting the sound of my favorite artist ... this will be only place where I might sound better.. heh heh. How is the sound? Since it is true by-pass it does not impart any sound at all, which is exactly what we are looking for, so therefore, the sound is exactly what we are looking for.
Reliability/Durability
The build on this is very strong. It looks like it would withstand almost any abuse. Time will tell. Under normal use, it looks very durable. I would gig with out a back up.
Price/Value
General Comments
Let's just say I own a lot of stuff and if I spent more time practicing and less time buying, I would be a better guitarist and my wife would be happier. I like to play most kinds of music. For the last 15 plus years, I have played country both the old and the new. I have been playing since before any one ever heard of Jimi Hendix:) I would buy this again if it was stolen. This is one of the best deals in music today. I get a quality strobe tuner, that is almost half the cost of it's closest competitor, is one third the size and is accurate. What's not to like?
