Tuning is accurate and fast (on a J-bass). Lots of useful features too. One on my favorite aspects is that engaging the pedal mutes the output. Very useful in many on-stage situations.

Very accurate +-1 cent (which is all you need from a tuner) Solid built quality, as per all Boss pedals. I grabbed the TC Electronic Polytune 2 first before I got this. Didn't like it's built quality and how it was very unstable. I went and returned for the Boss TU-3 and it turned out to be the right move. Trust me. This pedal will give you all that you need from a tuner pedal.

It ain't cheap for a tuner but you won't be dissapointed if you take the plunge and buy one. This is probably the best tuner I've had and it's super easy to use. Go step on one.

I have had this tuner for a while and I love it! It is definitely worth the money. Although I never use the bypass plug in. It is also really cool if you have a friend or as bandmate who plays bass they can plug in and there is a bass setting on the tuner. I love how it cuts off the sound when you are tuning so everybody doesn't have to hear you tune. It is a great pedal.

This is a 'must have', for your pedal train. Accurate, solid and versatile. Be sure to get the power cord and piggyback - parallel cord.

well I had the TU-2 and thought the new one was going to be better. I needed something that could do 7 string tuning .. so I got this one and well the 6 strings tune fine but the 7 is always off and it does not tune properly for some reason..

Solid, quality pedal. All you'll ever need really. You can go by string # or by note if you want. That accu-tune thing where the lights zoom in to the middle can be left on or off. It's simple and effective, and I have an easier time doing intonation with this than any previous tuners I've owned.

This tuner is more accurate than previous tuners. It divides the octave in to 100 parts. It shows you the tuning plus or minus to fractions of a percentage. This is good enough for people with perfect pitch. Since you would be tuning silently on stage you have to rely on the visual meters. When you hear the tuning when you play you can hear that you are as close as you can get with equal tempered tuning. At home its good to have an accurate tuner when your ears are fatigued. Another issue with old tuners that I hated was two different tuners would tune to a significantly different pitch. So guitar players with different tuners would not be in tune with each other. That created confusion. With these new tuners, all new tuners tune exactly the same, no variance. The unit accommodates various tunings such as Drop-tuning. The unit tunes one string at a time. Each string can be tuned in 2 seconds on a guitar so it does not take long to tune a guitar accurately.

Closest StoreGuelph, Ontario
I had this tuner with a Fender Standard Jazz, and the thing worked great up until the A and especially E string. The tuner simply couldn't track the frequencies (this is with the tone rolled off, using only the bridge pickup and plucking at the 12th fret). Not sure if the tuner I had was defective (since there are nothing but rave reviews on this one), but I returned it. I ended up picking up a TC Electronics Polytune 2 (which costs the same amount), and had no problems whatsoever. This tuner should really be in the $40-50 range when there are much better ones out there for the same price.
