OVERVIEW

Pro-caliber tuning with large, high-intensity LED meters—perfect for dark stages or outdoors.

The BOSS TU-1000 is a tuner fit for a rock star. This flagship of the famous BOSS TU-series is built tough and made for the stage floor. Its large, high-intensity LED meter provides perfect visibility on dark stages or outdoors, while the ultra-smooth and accurate motion of the tuning meter makes tuning fast, easy, and accurate.

FEATURES
  • Ultra-smooth, accurate motion and superior visibility with the meter's oversized LED
  • Accu-Pitch uses the motion of the meter's lights to show when tuning is complete
  • Two display modes: Cent (LED functions like a needle-type meter) and Stream (fluid light motion indicates when notes are out of tune)
  • Powering up the tuner automatically mutes the output signal, allowing you to tune without outputting sound
  • Handles open tunings, DADGAD, and other alternate tunings, as well as dropped tunings up to six semitones below standard

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".

                    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.
