    This is a great little device. The tuner beeps at you when you are in tune to pitch. The metronome has seven or eight beats and time signatures. Easy to use. Easy to read screen. Bright white color makes it easy to find for a messy musician or studio. I recommend it. Great price and value. Replaces my other BOSS metronome-only device. Easier to use than that metronome, too!!!

    This COULD be the end-all for all-in-one tuner/metronomes, BUT--- Boss really falls short in one CRITICAL area here: the metronome is TOO SOFT. It's fine if you're using the tool with a soft instrument, but forget it with a trumpet, piano, or amplified instrument. Boss, this is not a cheap product, so simply offer a 3-position loudness control for the metronome, and you have the BEST, once again, as Boss so often has! Wittner and Seiko have nice, LOUD metronomes, so don't let them beat you out, Boss!

        This model has unacceptable low volume to be used as a metronome. Google the multitude of negative reviews having this exact complaint before wasting your money.

              Beware - Not Useful as Metronome

                Comments about Boss TU-80 Guitar Tuner & Metronome:

                This is not useful as a metronome, if you want to hear it - the volume of the beats are too low and cannot be made louder, nor can they be heard through the output jack with headphones. Today, better and more convenient tuner options exist for the instruments I play, such as those that clip on and sense vibration. This may have some value as a tuner for some musicians that want to plug an instrument cable into it. I am extremely disappointed in this product, but may keep it only because of the shipping cost issues of returning it would cost almost as much as I paid for it on a Deal of the Day. I will be wary of buying another Boss product - how could they design and produce and sell a product that is not functional? I will purchase something else.

                        Awesome little unit for the price. It's true about the volume being limited as one complaint said, but what do you expect for under 13.00. I couldn't even find metronomes alone at that price, let alone a metronome/tuner. The volume is not a big problem though because you still have the visual that you could work your pace by. This is a nice little pocket slider for a single person. Not recommended for an entire band,horn players, or percussionists. Best for guitarists and singers.

                              Caught on a good sale and glad I did-ended up getting another for spare. Tuner is decently accurate, mostly use when I am setting up a guitar and setting intonation. Makes a beeping sound when exact note is tuned-helpful.

                                With the Great chromatic range, tuning pianos will be easier. Even tuning a my guitars,my fender bass it works like I expected. What I didn't expect is this: You can tune to + or - one cent. On the negative side; I wish it had a back lite screen like my Tascam - TG-7 has.

                                        I have a handful of hand-held and rack tuners, but bought this one: 1) because it was inexpensive; and 2) to keep in the case of a new bass I bought. Works perfect.

                                        The one I received seems to be temperamental. Sometimes it will obviously be off severely and have you tuning flat. Hz always at the same level, so it's not that. Hopefully no one else experiences this.

                                        I was amazed how responsive the built-in microphone was and how accurate the tuner is. I was able to tune a number of different acoustic guitars with ease, and even a twelve string a half step down with accuracy. Great little tuner that doesn't need a guitar cord to be responsive.

                                          You can tune either by plugging in or use the built-in mike. This model is way better than the old boss tuners. You can quickly tune a guitar. I don't use the metronome function. I do know that the metronome is not loud. I'm happy with this tuner and it was on sale at about half price. It's small so it doesn't take up a lot of room. Easy to store.

                                          This is a great little device. The tuner beeps at you when you are in tune to pitch. The metronome has seven or eight beats and time signatures. Easy to use. Easy to read screen. Bright white color makes it easy to find for a messy musician or studio. I recommend it. Great price and value. Replaces my other BOSS metronome-only device. Easier to use than that metronome, too!!!
