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).

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.

This pedal is a necessity. It does exactly what you want it to. I think it is a bit over priced for what it does but if you play live and do not have the time to tune off-line then you need this pedal.

Great gig tuner!

By Vindi

from Oklahoma City, OK

We use the Boss TU-2 Chromatic Tuner at church. Its the best tuner I have used. If you are in a band you have to have this tuner, or else your not sounding your best. The pedal style makes it a hands free unit. The bypass feature on it puts this tuner over the rest. It helps you get a quick tune in the middle of a set and saves your equitment from damaging popping when unplugging. This is a must have for anyband!

Great Pedal... but overpriced and breaks

By Chrewdog

from Seattle, WA

I purchased this pedal about a year ago and it worked great on stage to switch guitars and tune without having to distract the flow of the night... HOWEVER, just a few months later it completely stopped working. It's a great item, but I was very disappointed in its lifespan. Plus it's overpriced for what it's worth.

Don't know why I didn't use it before...

By Timm of Mean Molly's Trio

from Ogden, Utah

I'm a bit of a purist. I play a P-90 equipped guitar through a tube amp with no effects. I just love the way a well built guitar and tube amp sound together. Thankfully, when the TU-2 is off, there is no loss of purity. It's there when you need it and not when you don't. I love it. Having this tuner is a necessity. All other pedals are fun and add texture, but trust me, you need this pedal. You wouldn't take your guitar to a show without a case, would you? I really don't know why I didn't have this before.

A must-have for the gigging musician

By coolwhip

from Dallas, TX

This pedal has made its way onto thousands of pedal boards over the past few years, and not without reason. I purchased one of these after selling a Fender PT-100 that just didn't track well enough. I have never had a problem with accuracy with the TU-2, and I gig around the order of 3 times a week. This tuner has a variety of modes and different tuning styles, some more functional than others. Overall, you can't go wrong with this pedal. Though a little more pricey than others, it is built like a tank and will last for decades.

Great for gigging

By beaconhill

from NJ

This pedal is a great addition to any pedalboard. Its built to last just like all other boss pedals and the tuner is really accurate. It picks up and recognizes much more than some of the other cheap tuners I've used. The bright display helps for when your playing on a dark stage or before a gig. Very nice if you have a daisy chain of powered pedals already.

Great tuner for the active musician!

By Armando

from Los Angeles, CA

This is an amazing pedal! When I started my band my bass player; guitar player and I all got the Boss TU-2 pedal. It?s the first step in getting your live show at a professional level. I have had a fender tuner pedal before but it does not live up to the TU-2, this thing is strong and will outlast anything. The great thing about this pedal is that it also acts as a power supply for the rest of your pedals, all you need is a daisy chain and it will save you tons of cash on buying batteries for all of your pedals. This pedal is a must! Forget about buying any other effect pedal first, no effect can cover up your out of tune guitar.

An Essential for Live Players

By MyGuitar'sNameisEvangel

from Los Angeles, CA

This pedal is a must-have for those who play live. With a simple tap this pedal cuts the output signal, allowing you to quietly tune your instrument, to change your instrument, or to simply avoid unnecessary/accidental sound from your instrument. Boss makes this pedal like a rock and the lights are bright enough for any setting. Yes, it is a bit pricey for a just a tuner, but for what you get out of it it's definitely worth it.

Precise

By LJPlum12

This tuner is great. It is very accurate, perhaps not the most accurate, but plenty enough. The LEDs are bright and easy to read. It's easy to use, and pretty much foolproof.

The Best Tuner

By Grant Wiscour

from Dallas, Texas

I have tried lots of tuners but this one is the one that I gig with. It is durable and easy to read. We tune a half step down and that is easy to set up. If you need a tuner for gigs get this one. It will last.

Makes you sound better

By argussupply

from Evansville, IN

This is a high quality tuner that can be used on the run by any guitarist. My nine year old can actually figure this one out. Step on it and tune. It even will give you the string number instead of the note is you are easily confused.

Best Tuner I've Ever Used

By lo0zerkid34

from Marysville, WA

This is one great tuner and it's definatly worth the price. I use it for my bass to stay in tune when playing shows and it's never let me down. The Boss TU-2 Chromatic Tuner is the ideal tuner pedal for any guitarist/bassist whether they use it just at home or at practice and shows.

I noticed this is a best seller......

By C. Hardy of Predatory Mindset

from Winter Garden, FL

....and for good reason! This is a extremely accurate and reliable tuner. It has serveral preset alternate tuning settings for both guitar and bass guitar covering standard too tuned down a full step. And it has 2 display options; chromatic or by string number. It also has an input/output to be able to be run in conjunction with a distortion pedal or plugged right into your amp so that you don't have to unplugged to re-tune; just stomp it! This tuner is an extremely rewarding investment!

Why don't you have this yet?

By duder744

from Peoria, IL

Plain and simple: if you own an electric instrument that needs to be tuned, you need a Boss TU-2. It connects in your effects line if you have one, and if you don't have any other effects, this pedal will not alter your tone when not in use. Chromatic, guitar, and bass tuning modes give you versatility. Seriously, buy this pedal and your tuning will be easier, and your happiness while playing will increase.

Nice features

By Anonymous

from Yardley, PA

This tuner has some great features. You can choose between guitar and bass tunings, chromatic tuning or several built-in tunings (like a half step or whole step down). The LEDs are really bright. Most tuners suck tone when in line, so I have this connected to my volume pedal and it works great. I run off a power supply since this sucks batteries if used a lot.

Now I know why everyone has one

By ahk114007

from Jacksonville, Fl.

No matter who you see play, and no matter what style, it can almost always be guaranteed that somewhere on stage, there will be a Boss TU-2. After using it, you will see just why so many musicians, from hobbyist to professional, both guitarist and bassist, all use this pedal. It is both practical, with the stomp-box format, and mute/bypass capabilities, as well as being one of the most accurate tuners on the market, tuning to within 3 cent. Now granted, while at first the price may seem a bit steep, $100 for a tuner, it is by far worth every penny. No matter what your level of music ability, this tuner will be one of the best purchases you will ever make.

So THAT'S what a it's suppposed to sound like!

By AfterHours

from Athens, OH

All this time I thought my guitar stayed in tune really well. Ooops...it didn't!! I had no idea how good the guitar could sound when perfectly tuned ALL the time (so easy to re-tune between songs). The daisy-chain feature is great...I run a Bad Monkey and an RC-20 looper off of it. Talk about useful! Not sure what'll happen when I hook up more pedals, but I can't wait to try!
