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.

A little guitar jewelry that works

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!

              Being a Boss fan (I own the TU-12 and the TU-12), I knew this would be a quality product. The display is very easy to read, which for me was important, as I like to occasionally change from standard tuning during acoustic performances.
              This tuner is very accurate & unlike other manufacturers, the clip provides a very tight grip on the headstock of the guitar.
              The TU-10 comes in several colors which I like. I own a red & a blue tuner.

                    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.?
