    Some %@## stole my Boss TU-2 tuner after a show last saturday, so I've got to find another tuner. I'm thinking about trying a different tuner because I did notice a little tone suckage with the Boss. It wasn't extreme, but it was noticable.

    Does anyone have any experience with the new Korg pedal ( Pitchblack ?)

    I'm just looking for a tuner that I won't eat up too much of my signal, and does the job well. Not much to ask!

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    -Craig

    I'm thinking I might get a Pitchblack. I have a TU-2 which I have no problems with. I was looking at a Strobostomp but was put off because of the reliability issues people seem to have. I reckon the Pitchblack would be the way to go.

    I have a DT-10 that I like a lot, its a bit bigger footprint than the Boss, but it seems a bit more "visible" on my board. Very accurate and its black, and black is cool.

    That thief did you a favor. Buy a Pitchblack and keep an eye on it.

    If the guy would've left the $80 - $90 in the tuner's place, THEN maybe he'd have been doing me a favor. Instead, I get to pay for it - and extra cash out of my own pocket isn't much of a favor.

    But, thanks for the opinions. I'm going to try the Korg pitchblack, I think. But, it seems like most of the online places are backordered.

    the Guyatone is small, and more accurate than the boss. it can also be seen in bright sunlight.

    I know you probably can't wait, but some of us here at TGP are awaiting the pedal version of turbo tuner's strobe tuner.

    It won't be out until late summer. Here the address:

    I use the BOSS TU15, it won't eat up ant of your signal, and it is pretty accurate too. The downside is you have to bend over to turn it on/off, but the good side is it is fully bypassed in the off position so it won't alter your signal at all. A really great tuner, tried and true, as well as being easy to use. Visibility is great as well whether sunny and bright or dark and dim.
    Best Regards!

    i didn't wait, and just run my turbo tuner with an a-b box for silent and true bypass tuning.

    Yes, I have it since 2 weeks or something.
    It is great: true bypass, small, accurate and has 9VDC outlet for other pedals :AOK

    I and several friends have the DT-10 ... it seems to be the way to go. However, the new Pitchblack is smaller and has strobe modes although for stage tuning and speed, forget strobe.

    Therefore, DT-10 of go for the Pitchblack!!

    Couldn't find the Korg in stock a couple of months ago so I went with the Dean Markley PT-13 tuner.

    American Music Supply was blowing out the Korg DT-10BR which is the DT-10 in black for $69.95.
