OVERVIEW

A versatile tuner that lets you know when you're in tune so you never have to look down again.

The BOSS TU-80 brings super-accurate LCD tuning to musicians at a very affordable price, while adding unique high-end features like a built-in metronome and Accu-Pitch. The pocket-sized TU-80 runs on batteries and can tune almost any instrument, thanks to a chromatic tuning mode and ultra wide tuning range. It even tunes 7-string guitars and 6-string basses—putting the TU-80 in a class all its own.

Reliable BOSS Tuning with Accu-Pitch
Thin is in. That’s why the TU-80 was designed to be slim and light enough to fit in your pocket. Best of all, it sports reliable and accurate BOSS LCD tuning, along with Accu-Pitch, which plays a tone when you’re in tune. No more looking down at the tuner.

Versatile Tuning Modes and Metronome
Thanks to its chromatic and flat tuning capabilities, the TU-80 can tune just about any instrument—from guitars and basses to strings, brass and woodwinds. A handy Reference Tone Play function lets you hear the correct pitches, while a built-in metronome with seven rhythms and 10 beat variations makes practice more effective. No other tuner has all this.

FEATURES
  • Affordable and reliable LCD tuner with handy, built-in metronome
  • Supports chromatic tuning, plus 7-string guitars and 6-string basses
  • Accu-Pitch function sounds a tone when pitch is correct
  • Reference Tone Play function makes it easy to verify tuning by ear
  • Memory function stores your favorite tuner settings
  • Ultra-thin body fits easily into a guitar case or pocket
  • Metronome has seven rhythms, 10 beats and cool animated LCD display
Accessories
  • Dry Battery (R6 (AA) Type) x 2, Owner's Manual

    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!

        Comments about Boss TU-80 Guitar Tuner & Metronome:

        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.

        Comments about Boss TU-80 Guitar Tuner & Metronome:

        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.

        Comments about Boss TU-80 Guitar Tuner & Metronome:

        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.

          Comments about Boss TU-80 Guitar Tuner & Metronome:

          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.

              Great 'lil tuner/metronome. I got this cheap on MF's "Stupid Deal of the Day". Even at regular price it's well worth it. Buy it, you won't regret it.

                  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.
