    I have read too many people complaining about the cheap jacks on the Peterson Strobostomp to justify dropping almost $200 on it. The Korg DT-10 looks like it might be a worthy alternative.

    Questions:

    > Does it suck tone?
    > Is it accurate?

    I have owned several $20 Korg tuners and have been very satisfied with them, but I want one on my pedalboard.

    I too will probably buy one of these. Is it a lot better then the boss TU-2. I'm starting to hate my Boss.

    I've been using the DT-10 for a very long time now. Very durable, doesn't suck tone, grabs notes quick and tunes very accurately :AOK

    Had the DT-10 for 18 months. Never a problem and easy to read on stage with it's large LED. No tone sucking, and the jacks seem to work just fine!

    Compared to the TU-2, it's an insanely awesome tuner. You ask if it's accurate, well, the strobostomp is 10X more accurate. The Korg is 3X more accurate than the TU-2. Pretty transparent as well, though the strobostomp IS true bypass, can't get more transparent than that.

    Bottom Line, if you don't need to intonate your own guitars and are not spoiled already by a strobostomp (though that's not a bad thing!), the korg is a good tuner, especially for the price. Why anyone would buy a TU-2 instead is beyond me

    I've gone the way of the Strobo, and there's no turning back, but my last tuner was the DT 10, and my girlfiend got me the coolest one I've ever seen.

    While I don't use it, I can't see getting rid of it. It's too cool looking (c'mon, blue LED's!!!), and she'd kill me if I tried!

    That's a limited run. Costs as much as a Strobostomp.

    Cheers,

    Johan.

    It WAS a limited run, but it only cost her $89. Wish I got another. I scoured the net after she gave it to me. I even called Korg and MF to try and see if tthere was anywhere I could get another.

    A German dealer still has some and asks 199 euros for one, that's about the same as a Strobostomp over here. Could be they were the same price as a regular model when they first came out and this dealer is trying to cash in on the limited edition thing.
    BTW, I have a Strobostomp that I've had zero trouble with. The jacks do seem rather flimsy, but it's 2nd on my board and always plugged in, so I guess I should be okay.

    Cheers,

    Johan.

    Cool. Korg told me it was a limited run for Musician's Friend, and that once they were gone, they were gone. $200 is too steep for me, Especially since I have enough redundancy in the tuner area already. It is a great looking piece, though.

    I've had mine for around six months or so and I can't complain. Prior to that I was using a Boss TU-2 and by comparison the Korg is much faster and easier to use.

    For $90 to $100 bucks is a very sound investment--and it makes my guitar sound waaaayyy better than any F/X pedal ever will.:)
