As a performance aid, this tuner beats everything else I've tried. I use other tuners for other purposes -- studio work, portable practice kit, and so on -- but this thing is an indispensable feature on my stage pedalboard, and I don't think I'd want to swap it out.It's bright and easy to use, even in the dark. I can tune my 5-string basses in no time. Guitars take a little longer, especially in tempered alternate tunings (double-drop D, DADGAD, Dmaj, Gmaj, A6), but I can get my whole rack of instruments ready in a few minutes. I power it from a Gator DC power supply on my board. I send it one of the outputs from a three-way switch in my bass chain (Morley GL Tripler), which is dedicated to the tuner -- therefore, it does not sit in the signal path between the instrument and the amp. The tuner has a DI out and a passthru out, so in a pinch, I have extra signals I can send to an amp or a mixer channel.The tuning presets are quite helpful. I'm especially fond of the "stretch" bass tuning, which allow a bass to tune to an acoustic piano that has been properly "stretch" tuned. The range of "Concert A" values is nice. The tuner can also be "taught" to use a particular reference pitch.My only issue with the pedal is the plastic bushings and nuts on the input and output jacks. They tend to vibrate loose, and strip very easily. My solution was to find some equivalent metal nuts, and thread them on with a dab of silicone adhesive.If you don't mind putting out the money, this is a killer product for a busy musician.

This is my second StroboStomp. The first was the "original" with the circuit board mounted plastic jacks. I play professionaly and have since I was 13. I have put my oldest son through college, toured all over the world....and am not a meat head trying to beat up on Peterson. The first tuner lasted 3 weeks before problems surfaced. I contacted Peterson and after some back and forth and me refusing a replacement of the same (blue) model with the weak jacks, I was sent the "new" model. The "old" model really was not out long enough to be old. That should ;have been a "heads up". I have had the "new" model for a year now and it has failed...jack problems again. Intermittent, bad signal flow, crackling, etc. I thought it was my 100 year old Boss CE1. It was not. At any rate, although the tuner, when working, is superior to anything else in accuracy, the durability issue makes it impossible for me to get behind at all. The Boss stomp tuner is very robust, but +or- 3% accuracy? Yikes. A possible 6% off doesn't work for me. The Boss TU12 was always in my rig and will be back there. Yes, circuit board mounted i/o jacks, but I'll just keep hitting the solder joints every once in a while. At least until Peterson decides to give us what we pay for.It's and easy fix, and I wish they would get their R & D department on it...because I certainly did like the way it tuned.

The final word in accuracy

By ChiantiM

I waited and debated before spending $200 on a tuner -- very glad I made the investment. It's bright, accurate and versatile. The sweetening features are worth experimenting with; and the DI box is an added benefit. Highly recommended

stay'n play'n tune

By Justfenders

from Mansfield, Ma

I love this tuner even though it takes a little longer to tune. But if you want to play perfectly tuned it's worth the time. I recently tried playing with a friend of mine who's been playing out for years. He's got one of those Boss TU's that he uses. We both tuned up and we were out of sync. Anyhow, he said my Peterson was junk so I tuned up on his rig. I used a Matchless and just a strat. He had his whole rig a LesPaul a Mesa head 2 cabinets and a boat load of effects. When I got back home with my rig I retuned to the Peterson, not only was my guitar out of tune I thought my strats sound sucked. Don't play games with yourself. You get what you pay for. Your gonna pay more for quality, don't skimp on your sound. Get the Peterson.

Accurate

By James_Rocks_PRS_Guitars

from Marysville

I own the standard peterson strobostomp. The only main difference I see is that this one is just a different color. It also seems more well built than the first generation blue strobostomp.My main complaints on why I no longer own this.1.) I wear polarized prescription sunglasses on stage, so the polarized blocks out the view of the screen.2.) The loud annoying pop on the switch is something I hate hearing.3.) It has alot of features which is good, but I prefer things simple. I prefer the boss tu-2 because its simple, and can be seen with my polar glasses. the boss tu-2 does not have a loud pop when switrching on, its pure silence.The boss tu-2 is far superior in withstanding abuse. The peterson strobostomp always has the switch button coming loose because I tune like crazy.This works best for intonating guitars, or if you use different tunings. Not for me, the first one I got failed when the screen tweaked out, looked like a demo that they gave me. I sent it in for a new one, same issues later came, so I returned it for a boss tu-2.If you like it, then good, but its too much features for me, and the strobostomp, because the jacks are on the front instead of left and right, the strobostomp took more space on my board. I don't like using a larger pedalboard, I like a small setup these days. Its hard enough my tube stack is a pain to haul around.

Best Tuner Around

By TheGunn

from West Covina, CA

I love this tuner. I have had many, and this is the best by far. No more drifting needles or lights. The strobe locks when you are perfectly tuned. The accuracy is incredible. So much so, I have used it to intonate all of my guitars. The only drawback is the switch is mechanical. So pressing the switch while playing (for silent tuning), results in a "pop" being heard through the amp. Outside of that, it?s the best!

Great tuner!

By WTFband

from Atlanta

Like many others I always had the Boss tuning pedal. It did its job and everything sounded fine. Or so I thought until I bought this pedal. Its crazy how much better you sound when using this pedal, it really cleans up the tone no matter what style you are playing. My pedal is built well, the battery door is plastic but if you are concerned about that being road worthy and you are still using batteries period...you have other problems you need to address. I know the first versions had problems but this is the stroboStomp 2, I doubt people read and make that distinction so keep that in mind. Mine has worked great on my pedal board for quite some time now.

Broke after two days.

By Tepauldaca

from Texas

I got this for Christmas, before even opening it I was skeptical of the high price tag, and how much more value it would actually provide. After using it the first few times it did provide very precise tuning. Then it broke. After using it about six times with the battery provided the unit would not even turn on but just made a clicking sound. On replacing the battery I got the LCD backlight to light up dimly, but there were no tuning graphics. I immediately returned it for a refund and will never purchase one again.

HUGE disappointment

By Redsupro

from Los Angeles

HUGE disappointment here. The battery door on mine fell off within a few minutes of taking it out of the box. Basically, it's just a flimsy piece of molded plastic and not very securely attached to the frame of the pedal. I gave up after about 10 minutes of trying to attach the battery, then re-attach the "door" and I ended up putting it back in the box and sending it back for a refund. I expected far better quality then the tuner I received. A big thumbs down as far as being "Road Worthy".

The best.

By Mak Hofmann

from Malvern, PA

This is by far the best tuner I have ever owned. It tracks super fast, is ridiculously accurate, and can tune basically any stringed instrument. It also has true bypass and a great display that won't get washed out in bright light. Yes, it's more expensive, but given the money I've wasted on other tuners, it would have been a better deal for me to buy this in the first place.
