    Default Sonic Research Turbo Tuner

    http://news.harmony-central.com/Newp...rbo-Tuner.html



    I have had this now for a few weeks and am most impressed by the feature set. I paid $125 for this and that price included free shipping. Took 2 days for the product to arrive from ordering. There are so many preset tunings stock on the device but it even goes the extra step to allow your own custom tunings to be added to it. It's not as rugged as a Strobo-Stomp but then again it's NOT a stop pedal. It can easily be placed in a pedal board and is extremely accurate. It is a true strobe tuner. You can check out http://turbo-tuner.com/ for online demos and in-depth explanations of all the features. I will say that in the $50-$125 dollar range, there is no better or more accurate tuner you can purchase. I even tuned with other devices such as my Planet Waves PW-CT-04 chromatic pedal tuner and my Korg DT-3 then compared afterwards to the Turbo Tuner. In both cases the Turbo Tuner perceived the instrument as being off and after retuning using the TT, the guitar was completely in tune and even sounded better than when previously tuned with the other devices.

    Wow. No one else has one of these or has tried them? They are quite amazing little strobe tuners.

    thanks for the link stingx! I watched the video's there and must say it looks like a nice priced Strobe. In the Chromatic mode it seems to truelly keep up with your fingers. I often wish my Fender tuner would do this but it just does not have the speed to keep up, even with my slow playing. If their sale last awhile longer while I convince myself this will help me... I might just go for it..

    Question: the sight really does not say one way or the other.. is the 9volt Boss Compatable? (probably so..just checking)
