In economic terms, "respect" equates to sales prices in the used pedal market. I'm revamping my main board once again and am in need of a pedal tuner. I'm a Boss guy, and 4 out 8 pedals on the board are already Boss, so I figured I'd grab a used TU-3 off Reverb. However, I can't help noticing that the standard Korg PitchBlack is going for about $35 less on average than the TU-3. This happened last time I needed a tuner, too. That time, I set a price I wanted to spend for a used tuner and used eSnipe to auto-bid on a list of TU-2s and PitchBlacks. I got outbid on a few Boss pedals, and then scored a hit, winning a PitchBlack. It's been a solid, serviceable tuner, but you know... it's just not a Boss. I understand that the Boss is buffered and the PitchBlack is true-bypass, but it makes no difference to me because 1) I already have four Boss buffers on my board (not to mention the all-digital Canyon delay), and 2) true bypass is by and large a bunch of hooey. So, if the Korg is functionally as good as the TU, why the big price difference? I'd like to keep it in the Boss family, but jeez, thirty-five bucks for the logo? Should I just go with another PitchBlack?
