Love it.
I'm pretty stingy with giving 10's but this product is well worth it. For $ it is unbelievable, for twice that it's still a great value. Hey, a tuner should get you tuned fast and easy. It should also offer true bypass and not affect your tone in the slightest when off. The Modtone does those things as well or better than more expensive tuners, I know, I've owned them. Very fast tuning but a stellar feature is the large bright blue display. Man, you can see this thing a mile way. This is now the only tuner I would buy, and at $ a no-brainer.
Seems well built, solid and quite.
If you think you will get a better tuner for $100 to $200 you would be wrong. Really, try this Modtone. I sold a Korg for this, it's that good.

The MT-CT is a good tuning pedal, but a few updates/modifications could make it great. The bypass indicator LED is super bright and during dark stage conditions, it is really overpowering. The brightness makes it hard to see the adjacent pedals on your board. The tuner clicks in tuning mode while powered by a daisy chain style power adapter. Your signal is muted, but the clicking will be heard coming through your speaker(s). I have tested 3 MT-CTs on 2 different brands of daisy chain style power adapters and the clicking was present in each one. It is especially bad when your signal is overdriven. This negative effect forces you to turn down your volume or mute your signal in another way, which in turn removes the benefit of foot switchable muted tuning. The MT-CT is fine for practice or non-performing situations, but it needs a little more tweaking before taking it on stage.

not my favorite tuner

By Waynerock

from North Carolina

Comments about Modtone MT-CT Chromatic Tuner:

This tuner is inconsistent and jittery when tuning. When in tuning mode it is not silent. It has a clicking sound, could be the "clock" used for tuning. Too bad because the pedal is well made and has quality jacks and switches.

Comments about Modtone MT-CT Chromatic Tuner:

Tunes great, bright lights, yeah yeah yeah.

Problem is, the one I got clicks like crazy. You hear the off and the on through the PA (Guitar ->tuner ->DI ->pa) making it completely impractical for live use. I might get a bypass box and put it in the loop, but the whole point was that this was a cheap solution and now I need a cheap solution for my solution...

Comments about Modtone MT-CT Chromatic Tuner:

First impression out of the box was this is a very solid, well built unit. This is a solic chunk of metal and I won't ever need to worry about it breaking down.
The problem I ran into when using it is turning it on and off- this unit is loud. Whenever you toggle the on/off switch, it pops loudly. While this may not bother everyone, I play a lot of shows and can't have the extra noise coming through whenever I want to tune my guitar.
Aside from that, it tunes well and its built like a tank.

Comments about Modtone MT-CT Chromatic Tuner:

I've had Fender tuners, Boss TU3, several others, this is my favorite tuner. It has a big bright screen. It doesn't erratically jump all over the place. It doesn't take up 3 feet of yourpedal board. I know the Boss TU series are a revered series of tuners but I would trade 2 of them for this Modtone tuner....I won't have anything else now.

great tuner - MT-CT Chromatic Tuner

By James DeVore

from Muncy PA

See all my reviews

Comments about Modtone MT-CT Chromatic Tuner:

If you play live - this is a great piece of equipment to have - even if you use a multi effects pedal.
This is one of the best stomp box type tuners I have ever used. Simple operation - very easy to see in the dark. Metal housing makes it durable. Cuts sound to the amp when used in line so it does not interfere with your bandmates if you have to tune during a song.
Metal housing - great display.
One of the best I've ever used at a very reasonale price.

Great little tuner.

Comments about Modtone MT-CT Chromatic Tuner:

This is the first I have owned. My usual tuners were hand held or clip ons. I love the ease of use on my pedal board. It had the same response as all the other tuners I've used execpt the one on the Digitech 3 Voice Harmonizer but was so close as not to matter.
Haven't had chance to try anything but tuning.
Sturdy construction, bright and easy to see.
For the price it is equal to the high dollar tuners I tried and looked at.

          Functionally no problems. I like how quickly it detects the pitch. However, one of the four screws holding the bottom on (which you need to remove to replace the battery) was defective - it had no threads! It was a bit of a trial getting the back off the first time.

                I bought the Tuner as a gift on the Stupid deal of the day and I'll tell ya it's a Stupid deal…
                The button does not work every time and there seems to be a delay on the on off function when it does work. Also, the tuner is slightly off compared to my Korg Pitchblack tuner.

                    Mine came with one of the pads missing on the bottom of the pedal so right off the bat this pedal is not getting a 5. Tuner works well once you change the battery to something better than the one that it is shipped with. The construction is good overall except for the screen. It is covered by a sheet of thin plastic instead of a thicker glass like material like the Boss tuner pedal is. Interesting that the rest of the pedal is constructed with great materials however the screen (essentially the most important part of the tuner) is hardly protected. I got mine on sale and while I feel that this pedal is worth more than the vastly discounted price I got it at, I would never pay the current full price for a pedal of this fit, finish and overall quality. That is why I am marking "would not recommend to a friend" because for just a bit more money you can get a much better overall tuner, but hear me correctly, this is not a bad tuner, I just had some concerns.
