    Strobostomp. I've had it for 6 months or so and once you learn the little tricks to using it, it's excellent.

    The Strobostomp has a True Bypass switch also?

    What about being on a dark stage? Does it show the letter, and is there enough light to see what your doing? Because the TU-2 is great for seing in the dark..

    the display has a bright blue backlight and it works wonderfully in the dark. you can see the letter and the strobe patterns with no problem.

    I just did a gig this past weekend. We played on a very dark stage (between songs), and I was able to tune no prob with my strobostomp. Love it!

    I just got my Strobostomp the other day. As far as I know it's the only true bypass tuner. The mute function is great, the blue led is real bright. There are some nuances to getting the most out of the SS. Using the side of your thumb rather than a pick seems to work. Also turning down the guitar volume half way and using the neck pickup are supposedly useful tricks as well. Now I just need a Tone Press and my GAS will be beaten down for a little while.

    The Strobostomp has actually improved my pitch. I now can tell if my guitar is the least bit out of tune.

    I tuned up with a DTR-1 last night and could have sworn it didn't sound as in tune as if I would've used my Strobostomp.
