The Boss TU-2 Chromatic Tuner lets you shift to bypass mode for silent tuning with a single stomp. An eleven-point LED stream meter makes it easy to see when you're in tune (the movement of the meter slows the closer you get to pitch). Seven different modes provide options for both bass and guitar and a seven-segment display makes string and note names readily visible on dark stages. Footswitchable Tuner Off mode preserves battery.

I've had countless tuners, but this is the first pedal tuner I've owned, and I'll never buy another. I've used it for guitar and bass since 2002, and have never once had a problem with it. It seems obvious, but the ability to tune while still facing the audience, and without having to use your hands for the tuner itself is a revelation. If you've never done that before, you will be amazed at how much more professional you and your band will seem. Keep in mind - NO ONE in the audience wants to hear you tune. Nor do they want to look at your back while you fiddle with your equipment. The standby feature really helps as well, because it automatically cuts out the signal, so one person can tune while the others begin a song. This has come in quite handy for me on any number of occasions. One possible negative for some is that there is no condenser mic, so you cannot use it to tune an acoustic guitar without a pickup. This was not an issue for me, though. I only wish it was a little cheaper, but, that said, it is definitely worth the price for any gigging guitarist or bassist.

On the "local" club scene this tuner appears to be the industry standard, so I bought one untested. If you really care about the consistency of your sound though, you'll get a Peterson, which is far more accurate, albeit with a little learning curve. There's so much variance in what the TU-2 tuner says is a perfectly tuned string that a novice should be able to hear the difference. A bad unit perhaps? Nope. I tried a few owned by friends and the results are the same.For budget conscious persons I recommend the BOSS TU-12H for about 30% less (I have a 20-year old one that's way better than the TU-2). But truly, Peterson rules this world. Spend the dough and get a StoboStomp2, I bought two of them after using one for the first time.The BOSS TU-2 is also not true bypass and will rob a little bit of your sound if used inline rather than off a tuner out.All that said, I have found a use for my TU-2... I use it to get a cool sound out of my 12-string. Strings tuned to the same note sound so much different that it gives a 12-string some cool sounding textures. However, it's never consistent... I just need to take the time and program the custom tuning into my StroboStomp2.

My guitar teacher told me that this pedal was worth every penny and that it would help a lot. He was right. It tunes very correctly, can even tune bass guitars, and silences the guitar and other pedals so you can tune. Great Buy
It's a tuner, it does just what I need it to do and it's pretty "idiot proof" as well. Recommend it to any gigging musician.
To clear up the accuracy problems, this tuner is rated for +/- 0.3 cent. Not (%)Percent(%)... This is more accurate than any trained ears can hear. I have not used this tuner but I'm attempting to clear up some facts about tuner accuracy. A cent is 1/100th of a hert. Concert pitch (standerd) tuning refers to A at 440hertz. Hertz. In scientific terms. 100 cents make up a hert. Trained ears can usually tell the difference of about 5-10 cents. Not .03 of a cent like this tuner can. I can not say anything about the way boss TU-2 tracks, but there's no reason to buy a +/-.01 tuner over a +/-.03 tuner. This tuner should satisfy all of your accuracy needs.
I bought this pedal because my friend suggested it to me. So i bought it. It is a little overpriced but is worth it. It is for a quick and accurate tune on stage with out any worries... buy this bass
This tuner is absolutely perfect. The 'output' jack is for silent tuning which helps when tuning between songs. The tuner itself has a lot of options (Chromatic, guitar, bass, etc.) and is very very accurate. it's strictly for electric guitars and basses but that's not a problem for me personally. Keeping in tradition with other Boss pedals it's very compact and durable with bright easy to read letters. It's a great tuner at a good price and has everything i need.
Just got mine today. Actually bought it off of GC's used section. I think it's brand new.This could possibly be the best piece of gear I have bought, the tuning is fast and very accurate, plus it powers your other gear. This thing rocks, if it ever gets stolen or anything, I would replace it quickly.It will be on my chain for years to come. Also these things are pretty dang tough, built like tanks, so dont worry about it hitting the ground.
This is first must have pedal. The led is faster to tune your strings in Bass, Guitar or another instrument that you can connect through a 1/4 plug. Do you need tune your instrument without signal to your amplifier? The TU-2 does. Awesome. Buy it now.
All I'm gonna say is that it does something very important for serious guitarists, it takes away some of the stress we have onstage by being a very quick and reliable tuner.
I bought the pedal mainly because one of the pedals in my RP300 wouldnt work, so I couldn't go to bypass/tuner. After that happened, I just started using the tuner in my Crate FW65. That was a bit trippy, but worked. I found the TU-2 for a really great price ($60) locally, and it picks up every note in an instant. Flats, dropped tuning, everything. It's a really great pedal and it is very easy to read the LED's. I recommend the pedal to everyone. It's also a bonus that this can serve as a PS for your other pedals.
First pedal I owned and I'm glad it was! Sure you can have a load of fx pedals, but what good are those if you go out of tune during a gig? you can tune easily and effectively during a set without having to unplug from your gear and plug into a tuner. this is fast, efficient, and tough as nails. Never had problems with it.
