OVERVIEW

Provides easy-to-read tuning with a display made to be visible in dark or bright conditions.

One of the world's top-selling stage tuners, the BOSS TU-2, has evolved and improved into the TU-3 pedal tuner. Housed in a tank-tough BOSS stompbox body, the TU-3 chromatic tuner features a smooth 21-segment LED meter with a High-Brightness mode that cuts through the harshest outdoor glare. Choose between Chromatic or Guitar/Bass tuning modes. Accu-Pitch Sign gives you pinpoint visual verification that tuning is complete. The BOSS TU-3 tuner incorporates a convenient Note Name Indicator that can display notes of 7-string guitars and 6-string basses, while the Flat-Tuning mode can support up to 6 half-steps. It's the kind of instrument pedal tuner that no performing guitarist or bass player should be without.

FEATURES
  • 21-segment LED meter with brightness control
  • High-Brightness mode enhances meter visibility outdoors
  • Accu-Pitch Sign function provides visual verification when tuning is complete
  • Chromatic and Guitar/Bass mode (tune by string number, with support for 7-string guitars and 6-string basses)
  • Flat tuning is supported with Guitar Flat mode, which allows for drop tunings up to 6 semitones below standard pitch
  • Signal is automatically muted when the tuner is on
  • Supplies power for up to 7 BOSS compact effect pedals (with optional PCS-20A Cable)
  • Accessories:
  • Owner's Manual
  • Leaflet ("USING THE UNIT SAFELY," "IMPORTANT NOTES," and "Information")

Get in tune, quick, easy, and accurately with the BOSS pedal tuner. Order one today.

      Comments about Boss TU-3 Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

      Good tuner. What else can you say. Its tough, durable and you can tune silently and quickly. If you want a highly accurate strobe tuner then shell out the coin for one. Don't expect that type of accuracy in a stomp box. So for my review I won't compare it to tuners that cost 5X the price. For a stomp box/pedal board tuner, this one works fantastic.

          My jack finally went bad on my old tuner. I noticed alot of musicians use this BOSS tuner so I decided to give it a try. It is built very solid, very easy to see and use, and even has settings for 1/2 step and multiple guitars. Very glad I spent the cash to get a nice tuner!

          Comments about Boss TU-3 Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

          There isn't any excuse for playing out of tune anymore. Back when I started playing you had to tune to a pitch fork or a pitch pipe, what a hassle !!! If you were lucky you had a keyboard in the band and everyone tuned to the keyboard. This BOSS tuner is slick, it can mute your sound when tuning so you can check your tuning at any break in your performance, therefore, you have no excuse for playing out of tune.

            This thing is awesome, solid, accurate, so many functions. I've had it for 9 months now. My only problem (and I think some others of my demographic will agree)[age, not race or whatever] that I need my glasses (at that age) so I can read all the functions. lol, and this is my problem, not really the boxes' fault.

            There is no other tuner that does the job like this one does. LEDs are super bright if you do outdoor shows. This tuner is so accurate.

              Comments about Boss TU-3 Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

              Easy to use and you can tune in silence. I play some SRV and EVH and Hendrix so half step tuning is a must for me and this has it. I would give it a 5 star except that they don't show the polarity of the external 9V (BTW, it's negative center.) You can buy a generic external supply a lot cheaper than the Boss brand. The battery gets drained quick if you forget to unplug the input.
