    Works exactly as advertised; easy to read in either bright sunlight or dark stage. Hitting the tuner button mutes your signal while you tune, which is what most tuners do anyway, but it is also completely transparent & silent no matter how many pedals I daisy chain off of it with the included DC power line. That is the killer deal with this unit. I am building a pedalboard around it, and can see no reason to need a Power Brick. Got this on a Stupid Deal and couldnt be happier with it. BTW, I usually play bass, but it is even better for guitar players, as with a touch of a button you can go to Drop D, E Flat , DADGAD, or several open slide tunings. When you have reached proper pitch with a note, light bars ( like arrows) emerge from the left & right sides of the display bar and meet in the middle; no guessing involved when you've nailed the note. I love this unit!

    I would recommend this tuner especially if you want an easy to read bright tuner.
    This tuner is large - but easy to use and very easy to see. If you plan to use this tuner on a pedalboard make sure you measure as it is very large.
    Heavy Duty - Typical Boss high quality product
    Expensive - but nothing else compares -

                SUPER BIG DISPLAY you will have no trouble seeing this tuner,the "cat's eye" is really cool and this is alot more accurate than my previous tuner(planet waves) which could not even be replaced for the cost of this unit from MF.tunes fast and even has modes for alternate and drop tunings,at the touch of a button.sure it's big,but after using it you'll agree it's great.

                I always wanted one of these. Now I got it I'm not disappointed.
                it's a treat to have a really accurate tuner with so many extra features like the available drop tunings. You can be as precise as possible with the centered or streaming meter options. The light show these options give are really fun and make the tuner more visually accurate.
                The discounted price makes this tuner a "must have".

                Comments about Boss Stage Tuner for Guitar and Bass:

                This is undoubtedly the Coolest thing that I've bought in the musical field. I am an old guy and cool is not a word that I use very often but it really describes this. I cannot think of a better way to spend your money. I've got at least a half dozen tuners lying around here but nothing that holds a candle to this. I bought this so I could see it IN TNE DARK, WITHOUT SQUINTING AND WITHOUT GLASSES. This fills the bill in every respect plus it is extremely accurate, has more features than I will ever use and is beautiful to behold. The lights and colors are a show in themselves. The only problem I can see is that your audience can't see it. (I'm sure you can figure that problem out). I tune my guitars just so I can use this. If you'r bored, tune your guitar. I'm impressed and I highly recommend this.

                Wonderful tuner, my only caution is to those constantly on the move. Mine stays in place on the church platform from week-to-week, so no issues for me.

                I highly recommend this as an effective, visible and accurate tuner, and constantly get comments and "wow" from others.

                  Very bright display.
                  Best for larger stages.
                  Can hook up a few other boxes using its AC adapters.
                  Actual dimensions are fine. The footprint is actually not too large - the picture makes it look like a Line 6 pedal board. It's not that big.
                  The display *is* large.

                  Not as accurate as a Peterson Stomp Box, but probably close enough for most people.

                    This is a great tuner for on stage use. Solidly built, very precise, super easy to see. The down side is that it is pretty big and heavy, so taking it along for a casual open mic gig might be a little over the top. It isn't a tuner you can throw in the pocket of your gig bag. Other pros are that it powers your pedals and that it has options for alternative tunings. A big plus is that the light show is just plain fun to watch as your string goes into tune. All in all a solidly built professional tool though it maybe isn't the best choice for the casual player.

Does not appear to suck off sound or influence the sound, if you use this in a chain. I use this with a guitar and baritone guitar.

                        It powers other pedals. It's quick and responsive. It's Easy to see. It has 1/2 step down tuning as well as other tunings. For [$] Stupid deal of the day it was great bang for the buck. It's hard to tell from the picture but it's at least a foot or more wide

                        Probably the largest non-rack-mountable tuner in the world.

                        BIG and bright.

                        What I like about Boss pedals the most is that they are True Bypass units and won't disrupt your signal or add noise when they are turned off.

                        I've been partially blind most of my life and needed a tuner with a large display. For years I was using the Boss TU-2 becuz it lights up nice and brigth. But it was still hard for me to read it outdoors with all the glare the sun provides.

                        The menu settings are hard for me to read but I just leave it on the bass setting most of the time.

                        I set the tuner to the chromatic setting, plugged in a tuning pickup, and tried to tune my 34-string lever harp. It had a hard time reading the high strings and the tuning needle was all over the place. I had to move the pickup around till I found a suitable place on the harp.

                        For the price, and size, it should be rack-mountable. I suppose you could put it on a pull-out rack shelf and then tape it or tie it down somehow.

                        Overall this pedal is great. I have it located across the top row of my Pedaltrain 2 board and power it with position 5 of my Voodoo Labs 2 so I don't need to carry the bulky wall wart power supply. Has a lot of great versitle features allow you to change the display from cents to meter, turn the display lights on or off, mute your instrument when you tune or let the sound through so you can both visually and audibly hear what you are doing (I always have in mute mode when playing a gig). I love the brightness and clarity of the display and I can tune my instruments in mere seconds without any guesswork. This is a must have on any live gigs I play!
                        Has multiple tunings for guitar and bass so you can really dial in what you want whether it is a 5 string base or an alternate tuning for guitars.
                        Seems to be built like a tank and is fairly hefty in both size and weight. Very solid feel.
                        I got mine through a price match so I was VERY HAPPY with the price and service I received.

                        I purchased one of these tuners, and we are ordering 2 more,one for our bass player and one for our sound tech/guitar tech/amp tech/stage hand,yeah he does everything but play...we do a show requiring more guitars/basses than we can afford at the moment .So we tune ..alot...open G, D,E, for songs requiring slide, and E flat,and Standard. Yes you can clearly see this on the floor,it's really accurate,I use it to set up all my guitars since I'm poor and can't afford the 45 bucks a pop to have a real guitar tech set it up.And being able to power up additional stomp boxes is pretty cool,I have like 4 + the TU-1000.the best part of the whole thing is it don't mess up your tone when it's off, it has a true bypass,when you kick the pedal on your output signal is muted,zero sound,kick the pedal on, un-plug,change guitars,double check tuning,kick the pedal off and start playing,it's easy

                        Excellent product. Easy to see, even in bright sunlight. We play a lot of outdoors shows. My Pitchblack isn't bright enough on most days. The Boss works great.
                        Easy to use. I only use the Standard Tuning Mode, but there are a dozen or so choices.
                        Heavy Duty, appears to be well made
                        It is expensive, no doubt.

                        I'd give it a 10 rating if I did'nt have to even touch the guitar tuners,but since I have to manually do that then it gets a 9, no really this is a really useful tuner,nice huge display and accurate and easy to use,push a button and I can tune my slide guitar to my favorite open tunings,D,E,G....there are others but thats the ones I use,I can go from standard concert pitch to 1/2 step flat with the push of a button,it looks good on my pedal board,at first when I powerd it up I thought it to be a little on the bright side but the "storefront lights" can be shut off by holding the pedal down for 2 sec,it's easy to read,easy to use,easy to set up,you really need this, oh and did I mention that it powers up to 8 other 9 volt stomp boxes/effects ? I happy with my purchase
