    Sorry I can't advise on this. I just wanted to ask why not a Boss TU-2 or the like? I don't understand - why would somebody need a big rack tuner? What is the benefit of that? Just curious, as I've wondered about this in the past too. Thanks.

    Most I've ever tried were tone-suckers par-excellance...

    Go with one of the True Bypass jobbies (Strobo?)

    Run, run like the WIND.

    I never understood a basic rack tuner. Unless its some crazy tuner that you can't get in a smaller size or something. I guess if you were touring, everything would be in a rack case, so this would make sense. I guess I don't get it either. If I was getting one it would defiantly be some crazy strobe tuner.

    the stroborack is the only one i can think of that comes close to being worth the space it takes up, but even then a strobostomp on the pedalboard does the same thing, and lets you tune without having to turn around.

    The Korg stuff is fine.

    I've had an older DTR-1000 for a while and has given me no problems. Although, I haven't used it very often being I don't use racks anymore. I'm using a TU-2 which is also works fine for a tuner in pedal form. My DTR is just being used as a "community" tuner in the music room or at Church for now.
