    Default TC Polytune

    Cool. I have one too and was going to sell it as I picked up a Turbo Tuner. Had I have played around with the Polytune and tried the strobe mode I probably wouldn't have bothered with the T.T to be honest. Both are great tuners and although I really do prefer the strobe and brightness of the T.Ts display I decided to keep the Polytune and I'm going to put together a quality but small and basic board too.

    Why do you love it so much more than what you had? Did you have one of those Boss pedal tuners or something?

    +1 on the Polytune. I only have a small board, but I really like it. Mine's not so quick to respond as it used to be, but it works fine.

    The Turbo tuner is a little more accurate (.02 cents vs .05 cents) but I also use the built in daisy chain from my tuner on my big board so the Turbo Tuner is out...

    I'm really happy with the Polytune so far...I'm gonna use it at the gig this weekend and if I dig it on a dark stage and if it works as fast as I think it's going to it's going to my big board and a Polytune Mini will be going on the small board!

    I did...I've been using a TU-2 since about 2000 and never had any issues with it but for my small board I wanted a tuner so I could leave the TU-2 on the board. After a lot of reading the Polytune was the most accurate that still had the features I needed and wanted.

    That describes mine perfectly. Oh wait, you were talking about tuners.

    I also want to say that it is VERY cool that TC includes 2 pieces of velcro to put on the bottom of the tuner...a small thing I know but still very cool!

    That is indeed cool.

    I have no good reason to replace my Pitchblack, but if I did the Polytune would be the first one I looked at.

    I love mine too. Very accurate, still responds great. The velcro they supply, while cool and it did save me time cause I need it on the board quick, will give out. The glue isn't the best. I ended up replacing it with heavy duty strips instead and I removed the rubber feet too. Helps with the velcro contact.

    I don't think you'll have issues on stage. I don't, even outside.

    Yeah, I still have a TU-12, planning on getting a TT... it's just that the Boss tuners aren't true-bypass and aren't very accurate so all of the top 5 or so tuner pedals out there blow them away. It seems to be a pretty easy feat.

    Yeah I forgot to mention the lack of power out on the TT which I was a little surprised at but I should have checked the specs! When I build my small board I'm going to try get 3 or 4 pedlas that I can just power from the Poly so that will keep it real compact.

    I've tried 4 different pedal tuenrs so far and the Polytune keeps winning.
    If I know I'm going crazy, I must not be insane.

    I just bought a Boss TU-3 to replace my TU-2. It's very accurate and locks onto the notes very quick. I went back to Boss simply because I'm used to the layout and my TU-2 never failed me in over 10 years.
