    WOW, I just picked up a brand new Stobostomp for $145.00, brand new. The guy never even took it out of the box. He already had one and bought it from Guitar Center, and as soon as he got home he sold it to me. Up to this point I've only owned the Boss TU-2, so this is going to be a big upgrade right?

    BIG upgrade!
    Good price.
    You'll never be able to use another tuner again, though.

    I cannot wait, everybody is tellin me (Your guitar has never been this intune) and that I'll never be able to use another tuner. It's really important. What did you guys do the first time you started using the Strobostomp tuner? I mean, was it that much of a difference? I have been disapointed with the TU-2 latley, and have never really liked it because it seemed like I was always tunning in between songs on stage. I almost bought the Korg DT-10 and then this deal came along..

    You will absolutely love it. About 6 months ago, I finally broke down and bought a StroboStomp (actually, I convinced my wife to get me one :)

    It's incredible. My guitars have never been in tune like this and it's so nice. My Suhr has the Buzz Feiten Tuning System on it and there is even a mode on the StroboStomp for this. It's really amazing. I could never go back.

    I remember back in high school (in about 1972) I used to be against tuners all together figuring "I didn't need no damn tuner" for my guitar. I finally got one and started really liking it (especially when things were a little too loud to tune by ear). When I graduated to the StroboStomp, it was a vast improvement from my old tuner (which I thought was pretty good until I tried the strobo out).

    You won't regret getting one.

    The big deal is they are way more accurate (20x) than say a Boss TU-2

    I saw this on the SS forum! That's one hell of a price. Good job you saw this before the thread was deleted, as you know, the seller got a bit of a ticking off!!

    I am waiting for one to be shipped. Let us know your first impressions.

    BTW, I hope you are still enjoying the Zendrive. I have just received my dual A/B Zendrive (one standard, one with a tad more gain). It is fantastic!!

    Cheers,

    DD

    The best tuner for sure! Make sure you take good care of the jacks 58lespaulman, they are fragile..........

    Yep, it's gonna change the way you hear! Get a bunch of strings and re-do the intonation on all your gits w/the Strobo when it get in!

    Shane,
    You are gonna love it. Be sure to check the StroboStomp website for tips on intonation (I thought I knew the best way to do it until I read posts on the Peterson site) and carefully intonate all of your axes. Then, just let the SS keep your axes perfectly in tune. IMO, nothing in the pedal format comes close!

    BTW, still lovin your old RC. I still haven't turned it off!!

    These seem to be holding their own near $200, anyone find a really good discount? Used ones are few and far between.

    ...or maybe we can find a dealer that will do a group buy.

    Sam Ash occassionally will run a twenty off sale for tuners, regardless of brand....the SS ends up costing about 150 with the discount.

    I just thought being that this was a brand new - in the box - strobostomp that was only really $140.00, was the best deal I have ever seen on one of these.. Hell, there was one guy trying to sell one with a big scatch on the screen for $160.00. So I think I did good.. I can't wait to try it out and see how much better my guitars are in tune. Cheers. The best tuner I've ever had was a Sabine, and it was easy to use and did such a great job, but it wasn't a pedal. I'm very excited once again. I've bought like three new pedals latley, one is the Morning Dew EQ, the Diamond Compresser, and now the Strobostomp, and I finally got all my ducks in order. My band will be leaving for Europe in a month and a half for a four month tour. I very happy.

    The Sabine is what I used for years before I got the StroboStomp. The Sabine is very nice but the Strobo is significantly better.

    ...getting sooo sleepy.. yawn..

    Another tiresome doubter steps into the fray.. again..

    Doyle's a great player, but I don"t give a flyin' fu@k how he tunes his guitar - and neither should you, unless you're his roadie..

    Seriously, tho' - Have you even tried a Strobo cheesey?
