i've been using this pedal for 10+ live shows already and it works like a charm. has a second jack on the right so you can mute your guitar's signal when you press it down. very discrete feature, which is necessary live. compared to the Boss TU-2, I think this is MUCH easier to use. Although it's slightly more work to get the battery out (you can even use a pick as a flathead screwdriver) and it's not constructed quite as well as the Boss, it performs much better. I only had to retighten the jacks once, but I think it's because they have rubber o-rings. It also has a great LED display with 2 colors, yes ONLY 2. Anymore colors than that, and you're just confusing people (i.e. Boss TU-2) Blue, you aren't in tune, Red you are and its simple and easy to use. It's also very accurate and it isn't trying to get you're tuning down to the very minute twist of a peg. A great buy at $40 too I might add, plus they've added new colors to choose from. Why not make it fun, after all, it is just a tuner, but make it individual, so nice job Fender as usual.

2006 - I have had this tuner for about a year. As far as the job it does as a tuner, it works great. Perfect tuning as far as my ears can tell and the meter doesn't jump around like many other tuners I have had. Fairly bright display that can be easily seen. That's the good news. Now the bad. My complaint is one of harware. The pedal body is made of nice strong aluminum and is really solid. The pedal portion that you step on is cheap plastic and mine pops out of the pedal almost evertime I step on it. I have relagated this pedal for home use only. On stage use is not practical. You will spend time bent over putting the plastic pedal piece back into the pedal block amost everytime you use it.

Perfectly priced tuner

By ramlax13

from NJ

Comments about Fender PT-100 Pedal Tuner:

This tuner is great for anyone who wants a pedal tuner for gigs and practices, but can't afford the boss tuner pedal. This one works just as well and is priced perfectly. The display is nice and bright for you to read when your in the dark or don't have sufficient light. I would reccomend this to anyone on a tight budget.

Excellant Live

By John Nitz

from Sterling, IL

Comments about Fender PT-100 Pedal Tuner:

The key to this tuner is that it adds no noise to your system and does not pop through the PA when you use the mute feature. It also is a good point to change your guitar without noise during a show when the unit is muted. The LED's don't bouce around much, so it is easy to tune live. The unit is heave enough to stay put during live shows.

piece of trash

By person

from North America

Comments about Fender PT-100 Pedal Tuner:

I have had this pedal for a few months now. At first I thought it was amazing, but then it started to fall apart. After about two weeks, the pedal came off so I bought a new one. After a couple weeks, the same thing happened. I just thought this was normal and just kept fixing it. Just a few days ago, I noticed that only two of the lights were working. I took a look inside of it and found the reason why it first started falling apart. One of the screws on the inside broke the plastic around it. I looked inside my other one and I noticed the same thing. I do not recomend that anyone buys a Fender PT-100 Pedal Tuner for any uaw other than as a circuit breaker.

You get what you pay for....

By Stephen

from Paris, TX

Comments about Fender PT-100 Pedal Tuner:

This unit worked well for about 6 months of light use, although the pedal is a cheap plastic. After 6 months it started sucking the juice out of batteries like a vampire and a 9V AC adapter could not be found to supplement the power requirements. Fender doesn't make one, Planet Waves didn't have one, and the guitar stores didn't have one. I would recommend a Boss TU-2 or a Korg PitchBlack equally. They are twice as much money but you get what you pay for. Good Luck!

100% Tuned

By Pedal Freak

from Wichita, KS

Comments about Fender PT-100 Pedal Tuner:

I use this tuner pedals on stage when I'm playing in my church, and I am never afraid that my guitar is out of tune on the slow songs. I take a quick look after every song to check if I'm out of tune and if I am, it take me less than 15 to tune it! This pedal have very bright lights so its easy to see where your pitch is. I always feel safe when I'm using the Fender PT-100 Pedal Tuner.

Don't Know why anybody would give this a bad review

By Dylan

from California

Comments about Fender PT-100 Pedal Tuner:

Great tuner, simply said, it does its job, it will enable you to tune your guitar. Its basic, you step on it and away you go with your tuning, its made solid, and is compact, which is great bc it wont take up room on your pedal board. Best part is is that it tunes extremely well, and is much cheaper than any of the rack mount tuners or even the Boss pedal tuner. Have had no problems with it and use it just about every time i play.

Great tuner for the money....

By Frank

from Salinas, Ca

Comments about Fender PT-100 Pedal Tuner:

This tuner is great for the money, I've looked into just about all of them out there, but this one works great. The housing looks durable, and the lights are nice and bright(no bouncing around) but the pedal is made of plastic which pops out every so often & it's not hard to pop back in place. Bottom line if you can deal with that pesky pedal popping out every so often, then buy this tuner...

Cheap plastic and it shows.

By Wil Grundon

from Terre Haute, IN

Comments about Fender PT-100 Pedal Tuner:

I picked this up thinking there really isn't much difference when it comes to tuner pedals. Boy, was I wrong! The first thing I noticed was that the footswtich was flimsy and sticky and sometimes it would take two or three strong stomps to get it to engage or disengage. What's worse, it was NOISY as all get out. It put out what I can only describe as a sympathetic hum when it was engaged and I was tuning, but it also added a lot of noise to my signal when it was disengaged. I thought it was a weak battery, but it stayed the same when I plugged it into a 9v power supply. I took it back and ponied up the $100 for a Boss tuner and never regretted it.

The best tuner at the price

By Anthony "Ace" Aros

from Tucson, AZ

Comments about Fender PT-100 Pedal Tuner:

Although I've recenty moved onto the new Planet Waves pedal, I have used this for several months and love it. To be honest the only thing different is asthetic because this tuner is almost as good and at a much better price. Both the LED note indicator and the sweep LED's for tuning are bright and easy to read on a dark stage. It's a little lightweight but it's not a big deal. Overall, a great tuner pedal for the money

great tuner for a band

By ibanezboy

from las cruces, nm

Comments about Fender PT-100 Pedal Tuner:

This tuner is very good for a band because it just stays in one spot and you can step on it and tune away. I use it for my band, and I just love how it's always there. it can handle a lot of abuse so it lasts a long time. The LED lights make it so much easier to read, too. This is a must have for everyone who always wants to be in tune.

A great tuner from a great brand!!!

By Jaybo377

from Prestonsburg, KY

Comments about Fender PT-100 Pedal Tuner:

My band uses a Fender PT-100 pedal tuner during practice sections. The is the perfect tuner for using during live gigs. It is simple to use very accurate and very durable. Just drop it in your pedal board and you will always be in tune. This tuner gets tossed around constantly. It has taken a beaten and still works perfect every time. But then again what else would you expect from fender.

It is so nice

By Nate

from Lakeland, Florida

Comments about Fender PT-100 Pedal Tuner:

I bought this for my very first show. It was so much easier than using a handheld tuner. The LED screen is big and it is very easy to see from standing up and even when there is fog machines and spotlights in your eyes. I love how it mutes your instrument while tuning.

This is the best tuner of all time!

By camtheguitarman

from San Jose, CA

Comments about Fender PT-100 Pedal Tuner:

If you are in the middle of a gig, and dont want a tuner that jumps around everytime you turn the tuners on your guitar 1/8 of an inch, THIS IS FOR YOU. It has tunes perfectly to all the people that listen to my music.

cost effective stage tuner

By iowaismine

from Iowa

Comments about Fender PT-100 Pedal Tuner:

This is a bare-bones, road-ready tuner. The cost alone should pursuade anyone even slightly interested to pick one up. The Boss TU-2 pedal is heavier-duty; meaning it's die-cast and virtually can't be destroyed. The Peterson Strobo-Stomp is the cadillac of pedal tuners, delivering the most precise tuning of any stage pedal yet. However, it's often really easy to get distracted with features and assumed value and we all splurge and pay way too much for the same results. That's the biggest reason why the PT-100 is the workingman's choice.

outstanding tuner

By Captain Pickhard

from atlanta, ga

Comments about Fender PT-100 Pedal Tuner:

very easy to use. has two outputs, one which passes the signal only when the tuner is off, and one which always passes the signal. i've only used it with a guitar in standard tuning, but it will tune to any note. the blue and red LEDs and note display are very bright and will serve you well in darkness or under bright lights. the only feature it lacks is the option to calibrate to an alternate frequency -- you are limited to A=440 with this tuner.

Just what I needed

By Mike

from Edmond, OK

Comments about Fender PT-100 Pedal Tuner:

I looked around at various other tuners and I like this one a lot! I think that you're getting a great product (Fender) and it's 1/2 the price of some of the other ones on the market. (that was a big sales point for me) I looked at some of the other reviews on here and they were all correct! It's a heavy duty tuner that will be durable enough for play... and the tuning dial doesn't bounce around when you're trying to tune your guitar. I really like the muting/pedal feature and have been very pleased with my purchase so far.
