Old Stobostomp for me too. My ears are used to the sweetened tuning now.
TC Electronics just released the Polytune Mini3. It has some interesting new features. I have the older version. Works fine on the board. If I need something really accurate for bench work, I will use the “Studio Tuner” app on my iPad.
Polytune 3 because of its built in buffer.
I only had 5 or 6 pedals on my board but it sounded like a blanket was thrown over my amp (using the Korg Pitchblack).
I switched to Polytune 3 and (I assume to buffer) it was night and day difference. Buffers rule!
BOSS TU-3 and a Korg clip on for acoustic
Sonic Research Turbo Tuner. It is very accurate and fast to read. It takes a little time to get used to using it, but once you do, I can never imagine using anything else.
I just recently got a Digitech Hardwire HT-2 and it has totally replaced my Boss TU-2. It’s very rugged and well-built, easy to read, true bypass (in case you have a fuzz), and can be had at reasonable prices used. Love it!!
I'm going to look for one of these at a decent price. I always loved the Hardwire stuff.
I also have a Digitech HT-6, and it has been bulletproof, accurate, and easy to read. Can't ask for much more.
I read someplace that they are finding BOSS TU-2 pedals at Chernobyl and Fukushima Daiichi ... that work just fine. :-D
I got my TU-2 back when there really wasn't another reasonable pedal option. Can't think of any reason to replace it. That said, if I'm playing solo or getting to do the crowd chatter between songs I mostly use the BOSS as a mute and then tune with a clip-on Snark so I can tune and look a the crowd ("crowd" being relative). But in some noisy environments the Snark sometimes have trouble especially if tuning down for open tunings. In those cases the BOSS comes back into play. If I pick up more acoustic gigs this summer that I am hoping to I may use some of the money to get a smaller format pedal tuner then just leave the BOSS with the electric pedals.
Monoprice chromatic tuner pedal. Well-built, does what I want it to do, and cheap at $20. I can't imagine ever paying more for a basic tuner pedal. It has a normal output, so you can share your tune-up with the audience, or you can use its bypass output to spare them the experience.
It's the black thingie in my signal chain.

I have two Pitchblack tuners and an older Korg DT-10 on my pedalboards. I almost scored a white mini-Pitchblack at a pawn shop a few weeks ago but someone beat me to it.
I have a Peterson Strobo-Stomp for set ups and intonation chores. I'm saving up for a Sonic Research Turbo to replace the old Korg.
It's those mystery pedals again. Spot the Graphic EQ.
My latest tuner is a Tomsline AT-07.
Very bright ,very colourful, very cheap (had some Amazon vouchers).
My other tuner is a Behringer TU300 (don't laugh). It's stopped tracking the bottom E string.
I need a Boss TU2.
TU-3. Because I bought it the year they were introduced and it still works. It’s been through maybe 1000 gigs.
I actually have a second one I bought for home use. I won’t live long enough to ever stick it on my board.
So, I guess it doesn’t matter what else is out there...
They replaced an E tuning fork I got when I was a kid.
I’ve had two other pedals from the Hardwire series and they were very high quality, rugged units. I would not hesitate to get any of them on the used market.
I have the Polytone on my main board. It works great, though I never use the multi-string tuning. I tune my strings one at a time, just like a regular guy.
I aslo have a little Donner mini tuner on a smaller board that has a HUGE and very BRIGHT display that's easy to see. I could easily swap the two, no problem.
+1 on the turbo tuner had the strobostomp on my pedal board for awhile but I now think the turbo tuner is the best best pedal tuner out there. Still use the strobostomp for setups and workbench. I think there's a reason you see the turbo tuner on the boards of that pedal show and Brian Wamplers board. no buffer so it doesn't mess with your signal path and accuracy and note tracking are second to none.
Boss tu2 if you've ever heard of it
