I just bought an 'Artec big dots' pedal tuner off ebay, verdict - pretty crap and is going back.

Anyone got a decent pedal tuner with true bypass they'd recommend?

Boss Tu-2 is fine but it's not true-bypass. I guess Akai or something makes a tuner with something that at least looks like a true-bypass switch. And of course there's the Peterson Strobostomp, which I guess is true bypass.

Apparently the Peterson StroboStomp 2 is true bypass and is also very accurate. It is said that it takes a wee bit of technique and practice to use it correctly, and the tradeoff is near perfect tuning/intonation.

Cheers, The Peterson looks great but I can't afford to invest so much cash in a tuner at the mo. May go the Boss route as seems the industry standard.
Anyone ever tried the Fender PT-10/100? or the Korg DT-10?

I recently bought a Fender PT-100, to replace an Arion tuner that died. It seems fine, but I'm not sure what you mean by a true bypass.

My understanding of true bypass is a pedal that passes a clean signal without using a battery or power supply. Maybe this is not correct? ...

[pause to search net]

... Have just found this definition:

"# WHAT IS TRUE BYPASS?

The term "True-bypass" refers to a method of wiring a pedal's stomp switch such that when the pedal is in bypass mode, your clean signal goes in one jack and out the other. The signal does not pass through any active circuitry that can corrupt your original tone. Many pedals employ a signal buffer instead of a true-bypass design, unfortunately if this buffer is poorly designed your pedal will "suck tone" when in bypass mode. "

OK, thanks, never heard of that before, but I'm not a great pedal user. I don't leave it plugged in during a gig, I can fine tune my guitar without it. I just use it to tune up before a gig. After that, my ears tell me if I'm out of tune.

I love my Peterson Stobostomp. Easy to see, accurate and fast.

Anyone have the Behringer BTR2000?
Great features & price, but is any good (tough/ reliable/ accurate etc).

Is this the dirt cheap rack mount unit? I think I've read on a forum somewhere that it sucks big time.

Hey scunny, it is the rack mount.
Any more specific than "sucks big time"!

Wow, not good at all! "Sucks big time" sounds right.
Might save a bit more for a Korg. I hear Fender have a new rack mount tuner out which I'll check out too.

Just bought a Planet Waves pedal tuner.

This thing is awesome as far as tuners go. True bypass. Optional muted switching. Strobe or sweep mode. Great display. Accurate to one cent. Adjustable calibration. Built like a tank.

All for $139 AUD. Before you buy Korg, check it out!
