I'm doing experiments with different concert tunings (A437, A442, etc), as there's a different effect on the ear/brain between the different "A's". I've been interested in this ever since I learned that 'A440' is an arbitrary 'standard' in effect; historically different bands/orchestras used whatever 'A' reference they chose, not necessarily the same as each other's. Most tuners don't allow one to tune to anything but 440 'fork-A'. I bought this tuner because it was the only clip-on I found here that can tune to one's concert pitch of choice. The display-colors/layout are in the cooler blue-green-yellow range, so they are easy to read on a dark stage without being ostentatious. This tuner doesn't really clip well on Tele/Strat headstocks (or my Carvin w/ 2+4 tuners); you can use it, but it isn't likely to stay there long. This is a more substantial, and more versatile, tuner than other clip-ons I've used (Snark et al).

This tuner did not work well for me. First and for most this thing was not accurate at all for me. The meter bounces back and forth from sharp to flat. I read a review that said "finally a tuner that doesnt have to make up its mind" and I was really looking forward to that cause the KORG tuner I have has been acting weird lately. Unfortunately I was extremely disappointed. It worked ok for the first 10 min, not great but ok. I was doing a string change when I first used this on a floyd and by the time I was almost finished I had given up on this thing and gone back to my other tuner. I bought it for all the good reviews, maybe this ones just bunk I think i'll get a replacement and see if that works any better, but for now I gotta give it a 1 I was extremely disappointed. It'd probably be just as accurate for me to tune by ear.

Comments about Boss TU-10 Clip-On Chromatic Tuner:

This is my favorite clip on tuner. I still love the snark clip ons for the money but the Boss is just one notch above. The only con is that the head doesn't swivel like the Snark tuners but this really hasn't been a problem for me. If you like clip on tuners this is the one to get!

      Comments about Boss TU-10 Clip-On Chromatic Tuner:

      My first clamp on. Good, no more cords, ambient noise interference, etc. I like that the clamp force is just right. Strong enough to stay on your instrument, yet not so tight as to leave marks. Easy on off switch (also shuts off on its own). Now my other tuners are going to sit in a drawer-this one is just more fun to use. I like the visual "reward" that occurs when you nail the tuning-that is the motion lights traveling from both sides to the center. Ok, it's just a tuner, But I still feel it's a successful product. and well made.

      This tuner visually is beautiful and easy to use. When you are in tune, you can see the indicator is very accurate and easy to see. In some cases, you can leave it on, even when you put it in the case because of it's round low profile. Another excellent Boss product.

        A little guitar jewelry that works

        from undisclosed

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about TU-10 Clip-On Chromatic Tuner:

        Very good and excellent for fine tuning. I have 6 guitars including a electric classical and it works great on all of them.
        I have a cheap Fender headstock tuner and a Planet Waves . They are not even close to the TU-10 and unreliable when used on different guitars.
        Works independently with amp.on or off.
        The Boss fits on all types of headstocks, has a nice display with a good auto shut off.
        You do not need a pedal tuner if you have one. You can carry it in your pocket and the price is right.

              Comments about Boss TU-10 Clip-On Chromatic Tuner:

              Love the Boss TU-10! I own 2 of these tuners. Easy to use, highly visable and user friendly display that illuminates well (even when all of the stage lights go down). Very well built and durable (especially the clip/spring mechanism - which can break on cheap tuners). In my experience, these tuners have excellent battery life! I previously bought the Petterson strobe clip on at a higher cost but was less satisfied and I really didn't need all the bells and whistles. The chromatic feature of the TU 10 is great because I do not have to press additional buttons to select a different tuning "mode" if I want to use open tunings or tune each string down a semi-tone. I've used my first TU-10 nearly everyday for two years and it is still going strong! Highly recommend!

                    I've gone through a lot of tuners. They usually don't last long. I need one I can keep in my gig bag without it being crushed or broken. I need one where the battery doesn't go dead when I forget to turn it off. I need one that works when I need it. This one works when I need it.

                      Bought this as a xmas gift.
                      Good thing I checked it out before wrapping.
                      The installed battery showed a bright display of 440.
                      When I placed it on a previously tuned guitar the low E showed F#.
                      In fact all strings showed 2 steps sharp.
                      I changed the battery and now the readings are correct.
                      Don't know how well it will perform as it is a gift to someone else.
                      The battery SNAFU should not have happened. According to the manual if the battery is low the display becomes dim which was not the case.
                      kind of baffling....but it seems to work ok...for now.?

                                  Finally! I have been trying to find a good tuner for over a year, and this is it. I love the display, the grip shape, the accuracy. It doesn't fit so well on my Tele, but it still tunes it up spot on. I think most folks will be completely happy with this well designed tuner.

                                    This tuner is easy to use and accurate. I have had clip on tuners before but could not quite get the exact tuning results. This does the job and gets me where I need to be in a hurry.
