    Well, did it meet your expectations, surpass them or fall flat on its ass ?

    Please tell

    I pre-ordered one a month ago and was told Friday it'd be another month before it ships. I'm getting pissed.... :stir

    I'm about to buy a second one! I like it. Works really well, is easy to use and doesn't futz my tone. It's the only tuner I've had that I don't need to put in a loop. For my simple needs it's the perfect tuner.

    I got one from American Musical Supply a week and a half ago and I love it. I like the way the display moves and is very easy to see. I have run my TU2 in a TB loop for years and now I have a more accurate tuner in a much smaller package.

    i picked one up yesterday and used it last night at a gig. Very easy to read... seemed much easier to tune with than my trusty old TU-2... and I'm not sure why.. i'm not that technical, but with a TU-2, I always seem to tune, then have to recheck by ear and adjust. With the pitchblack when I tuned it was in tune. Plus it's in a small package... I love it.

    did you guys find the lights to be stable or darting all over the place like the TU2 does ?

    No darting at all. That's the thing I like about it the most. I've had 4 other tuners and this one is the most stable by far.

    Great little tuner. Very accurate, the True Bypass doesn't mess with the tone at all and it's compact. Looks cool too.

    Darting is one thing but, How fast does it track? or let me put it this way. Does it track faster than the TU-2?

    I am waiting for the pitchblack plus which can
    do Buzz Feiten and will memorize open tunings
    It will set a new standard for tuners

    I'm happy with my TU-2. Maybe someday I'll try the pitchblack though.
