I use the monoprice tuner. Works great for 15.00 or so
I love my PitchBlack. I find it to be a quick & accurate tuner that last super long on a non-alkaline dollar store battery. I never have had any pop issues with mine and I stomp the heck outta it from time to time to do that stutter signal effect....it does have a soft click button but I don't hear a pop ever (maybe because of the battery power??).
I would definitely get another PitchBlack if I decide to do 2 or more dedicated boards!
Okay, so maybe used prices DON'T equate to "respect". The PB gets plenty of respect here, and I'm all about bang for the buck. I bought a PB off a Reverb last night for half of what a TU-3 would have cost.
So my board will be 4/8 Boss instead of 5/8. No biggie.
pitchblack does pop a little thru my amp, but the pop is quite small compared to other true bypass pedals I was using, and then ditched because of their pop.
Its a good tuner. we recently did a noon broad daylight DIRECT sunlight show and the display on my pitchblack was arguably more readable in direct sun than the TU-3 and the TC Polytune, at least to my old burnt out eyes.
I have the old TU-2, but it wont run on battery power without mangling the output for some reason. Weird. Was a nice tuner in its day, still seems to work ok with a power source.
I wanted a cheaper tuner for my 2nd board and ended up with an older Korg PT-10.
I like it. Works great.
Had it on an outdoor stage a few weeks ago - really bright, sunny day and it lit up enough to keep myself in tune.
I have a Polytune on my bigger board and that's a keeper, too.
I have a TC Polytune and two Korg Pitchblacks. I prefer the Pitchblacks. I don't use the polyphonic tuning in the Polytune, and I like the battery life and display of the Korgs better. Now I use the Korgs for upright bass, acoustic guitar, and fiddle rigs and the Polytune for electric guitar. The Polytune works, so I don't plan to replace it, but when I have to replace it, I might just get another Korg pedal, unless at that time I need something that's buffered.
Does anyone have experience with the T-Rex Tunemaster? I'm attracted to the switchable buffer and top jacks. (Ignore if that question is too much of a threadjack.)
I have a Pitchblack (very nice tuner) but gigged Polytunes because the Polys are faster.......strum open E, see the problem, then switch to that string and get the big display on that string. I think the Polytunes are like Pitchblack 2.0.
Pitchblack is my oldest pedal.
No problems indoor or out.
Always works, I never question if it is on or off.
Stays off my radar.
I dig the silhouette more than other tuners.
I always like traditional chrome switch-buttons.
I had a Pitchblack but after a few years it started having trouble locking onto my high "E" string. Not acceptable for live playing, so I relegated it to using it at home and at rehearsal. A few months or so later it started getting unreliable in general so I threw it out.
Bought a Turbo Tuner ST-200 a few years ago for my pedalboard and couldn't be happier with it. Also bought a used Boss TU-2 at a great price for situations where I don't need/can't use a pedalboard and it's also been flawless.
I dig my Pitch Black. It got me thinking about the first tuner I had back when no one had one... a Boss TU-60. Real primitive but still works fine. I used to tune everyone's guitars and basses before playing, and that was back when nearly everyone tuned by ear... terrible!
