I bought a BOSS 12H guitar tuner 12 years ago, it finally gave up the ghost last month & I am replacing it with the newest model of the exact same tuner. It absolutely always gave perfect tuning for electric or acoustic, would even tell you whether your voice was exact pitch; In fact we looked at an electronic keyboard to purchase, I checked it with my tuner & we did not buy it because it wasn't exact pitch. HINT: Buy the AC adapter, tuning is difficult w/ low battery.

Well, I wanted good quality tuner for my studio. This one does not tune correctly - so there is not much to say about it more. There is better tuner out there that most people including me are afraid to use - OUR EARS. I tuned my guitars for half of my life (I'm 51 now) using my ears and I was fine. The minute I started using tuners - I have problems with tuning.... LOL

Comments about Boss TU-12EX Chromatic Tuner for Guitar & Bass:

This tuner allows you to check your tuning on the fly without killing the signal chain. It also 'still' fits in the BCB-60 pedal board case AND can be powered by the built in power source without needing a battery. I use it with the a bass pedal board rig!

            Very accurate, especially good for setting intonation. An analog tuner will beat a digital one every time.

              Comments about Boss TU-12EX Chromatic Tuner for Guitar & Bass:

              This is my 2nd TU12 tuner. the last was so good, someone stole it! This is the only tuner I will use to perform set up of my stringed, fretted instruments. Spot on accuracy and very easy to use. If you can afford the price, buy this. It is not a cheap $25 tuner, but a rock solid device that will last a lifetime if you care for it and safeguard it against unauthorized liberation (theft). Buy it or be out of tune!!!

                      I ordered the Boss TU-12EX to replace the TU-12H I've used for thirty years. Although a little thinner than the older model it is just a touch taller so I had to enlarge the space a little in my old Boss pedal box, not a problem with a Dremel. I like the fact that the needle is adjustable without taking the thing apart like the old one, good to know if it ever gets off. Also, cents are marked every 2 cents instead of every 5 cents which might be useful. I've never used some of the features like flat tuning, or the audible tone; just need a reliable, accurate tuner. And I like these instead of the Boss pedal tuner because I can always take it out of my pedal box, put a battery in it and use it for acoustic instruments with the mic when needed.
