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

    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.

        Comments about Boss TU-3 Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

        This is an awesome tuner with so many capabilities in regards to different tuning modes. Need to tune a half step or whole step (or more) down? No problem! This thing is also very responsive and quick. Practically keeping up with fast playing pretty well. You obviously don't tune that way, but I mention to illustrate quickness in processing and correctly identifying different notes. Also find this to be very accurate. Although strobe tuners are ideal for intonation, I can set intonation with this pedal pretty well, so if you need to at a gig or don't have access to an expensive strobe tuner, give it a shot!

        Illuminates very nice and bright, so no readability issues in dark room or stage. I also like how you can run bypass or thru, so in one cable output routing, kills sound upon engagement, and in the other routing option, keeps sound and volume untouched when engaged, giving you options.

        Like all my other Boss pedals, this thing is built like a tank. Very durable.

        I power 7 other pedals with this through a separately sold 'daisy chain' multi-plug power chord. If you need one, I went with Visual Sound 1 Spot, or just buy the cable only, if you already have a power source.

        This pedal is excellent. Get it!

          Comments about Boss TU-3 Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

          I was a bedroom guitarist using a hand held tuner until i decided to actually join a band and start upgrading my gear. This pedal is SOLID like all boss pedals. I gigged with it heavily with out it being on a pedal board (took a bigger beating from transport and stage accidents) even when its beat up it still works perfectly. The LEDs are easy to see and I've never had an issue with any of the jacks.

              This tuner is easy to see on the floor in all situations, and automatically senses which guitar string is being played (as long as the string is not radically out of tune) no buttons to push. It can be left in the signal chain, with no effect on tone or volume.

              This tuner is fast,accurate and dependable. It is all metal. I think it will last a long time.
              Heads up: It has no mic for acoustic instruments. I use a 9 volt battery. It ships without a power supply

                  Comments about Boss TU-3 Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

                  My TU-2 hadnt died, but was limping after almost 15 yrs of regular and sometimes irregular abuse. It was cutting in and out and wasnt prudent for live shows as I switch basses for certain tunings. IT STILL SPOT ON TUNES so Im keeping it for the rehearsel room. I called the competition so I could just walk right in and get me a new TU-3. I was told the NEW TU-3 was not as good as its predecessor the TU-2 and they tried to sell me a used TU-2 saying that it had better tuning capability......So....instead I ordered the NEW TU-3 from Musicians Friend, because I do play outside shows and NEEDED the LED for sun glare. Oh, by the way, its EXACTLY like my TU-2 just better. Bigtime keeper.
