Certain music accessories are more essential than others - take tuners, for example. Whether you've been playing for years or just picked up your instrument yesterday, a tuner will ensure that every note you hit is perfectly in key. With that in mind, if you're a musician who plays live gigs, a pedal tuner is definitely the best way to go. With the simple click of a footswitch, a pedal tuner mutes the signal travelling to your amp. This allows you to get in tune right there on the spot without having to disconnect any of your instrument cables. Typically, pedal tuners are solidly-built to handle countless stomps and contain easy-to-read LED note displays, and the models in this catalog are no exception.
If you haven't noticed, this selection of pedal tuners is an extensive one, so you should have no problem finding one that matches your needs, tastes and budget. To start things off, check out the Korg Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner. Available in a variety of collection colors, this tuner just happens to be Korg's most advanced guitar/bass stompbox-style tuner to date. With its tough aluminum die-cast body, LED meter and note display and even an LED meter that can be switched among four modes (Meter, Full Strobe, Half Strobe and Mirror), this chromatic tuner is ideal for any live performer.
Another popular tuner is the Boss TU-3 Chromatic Pedal Tuner. In fact, this tuner is one of the most recognizable and top-selling stage tuners in the world, and for many reasons. It's housed in a body that's built like a tank, features a smooth 21-segment LED meter with a High-Brightness mode and allows you to choose between chromatic and Guitar/Bass tuning modes. Honestly, you'd be hard-pressed to find a guitarist or bassist that isn't impressed with the Boss TU-3 Chromatic Pedal.
You can be the most technically-proficient guitar player in your neighborhood, but if you're not in tune, you're never going to have your potential fully realized. For this reason it only makes sense to always have a pedal tuner close by anytime you hit the stage - and any one of the choices in this section will make an exceptional addition to your pedalboard.
