I have a Fender Custom Shop Telecaster based on a ’62. I also have a ’61 Gibson SG my girlfriend bought me. I string them with D’Addario NYXLs, gauged .010-.046. My amps are ’67 and ’68 blackface Fender Pro Reverbs. I have a Boss DM-2 Delay, a Wampler Ego Compressor, a Walrus Audio Plainsman for clean boosts, and, for overdrives, I currently use an Oddfellow Effects Caveman Drive and a Jetter Jetdrive. My tuner is a Sonic Research strobe.more
After reading all the rave reviews about this tuner pedal I decided to pull the trigger on it and I have to say that this pedal lives upto those rave reviews. Its accuracy is unlike any other tuner pedal. Even those Peterson tuner pedal look pale compared to this pedal However the thing that surprised me the most is its tracking speed. This pedal tracks in realtime which is impossible to do with DSPs. So I opened up this pedal and what I saw truly surprised me. This pedal doesn't use a DSP to measure your tuning. It uses the analog signal from your guitar to directly drive a LED array stroboscope. It basically a LED array based analog strobe tuner stuffed in a pedal.
I have one for my guitar board an another for my bass. I'd keep just one of them if only because the strobe looks so cool. But since they react so fast and accurately they both get to stay. My guitars have never been better intonated.
My ex-guitar teacher recommended me this tuner pedal instead of PolyTune 3 and I'm glad I listened to her. The tracking speed of this tuner is way faster than PolyTune 3 and its visibility is great too.
