polytune: best there is, imo. people will tell you it gives you different readings if you use poly vs. ind. string modes. they're wrong and simply aren't using the pedal properly. strumming is different than striking ind. strings. we pick strings harder. that's why you can get diff readings on poly compared to ind. string mode. pedal works perfectly!

I own a Boss TU 3 and two Turbo Tuners ( one is a floor model)
I bought the 2nd TT for the preset tunings. Especially great with tuning a pedal steel guitar. They're all good. Also, I run my tuners out of the volume pedal tuner out.

never really thought of tuners in terms of there being a "best"... to me, they either work or they don't. so what am i missing? what makes one better than another???

i've only ever used a plain old boss tuner and i've never been out of tune or anything :aok.

Korg DT10. It's older but it works just fine. I want a turbo tuner but keep buying other things instead.

Turbo Tuner.
but I've used a Boss TU-12 for almost 20 years and it was (and still is) great.

The main considerations are how well it tracks a note, how accurate it is, and how easy to read the display is (especially if you plan on using it outdoors).

I have a Polytune on one board, and the Turbo Tuner on another board. They have both been accurate for me, so I have no hesitation using either one.

Have been using the Korg Pitchblack...but just got a Snark that has the potential of freeing the pedalboard space of a pedal tuner.

I recently upgraded from the DT10 to the Turbo. Better than a new dirt pedal! The TT is much more responsive, quicker. With the DT10 I never felt sure I was in tune. Great product.

I've used the Boss Tu2, Polytune, and the pitcblack. I now use the Turbo Tuner. :aok I know some people hesitate because of the price. But sometimes, they can be had for cheap. But you have to be fast.

Fender PT100 pedal tuner. It works fine, the bypass is not an issue. For $40, it's good enough for now.

I use Pitchblack. Got it before TT came out or before I knew about it. PB works great, not worth it for me to reinvest.
