Why can I not post photos from Google Photos?

That's a huge drop in quality
I use a Boss TU3 for gigging but replace it with a Looper when I am at home for practice. I use a Polytune Clip On for home which I like a lot but have not been able to get comfortable with it gigging. I hope to though. But the Boss just plain works and it is easy to see in the sunlight when you switch the display mode for it.
I almost bought a Strobostomp, but in the decided to go with a Turbo Tuner ST-300 Mini. It is FAST and accurate (true strobe tuner) and has a smaller footprint than the Strobostomp. In addition to chromatic mode you can set up custom alternate tunings.
I do think the Strobostomp is a little more aesthetically pleasing, but it takes up a lot of real estate.
There aren’t a lot on Reverb, so I ordered directly from the manufacturer and they got it to me really quickly.
The Sonic research ST-200 is by far the best tuner I've ever used.....by far.
Extreme accuracy, it's great for strobing your bridge.
I liked the tu2, and can totally see it's worth.
Bought at tu3, and felt like boss ripped me off. Many complaints about its buffer. They are cheaping out.
I think I've made my point. You don't need to defend boss, just go ahead and use it if it works. I know what I hear, and that's my opinion.
I use a Boss TU-3 ... upgraded from a Behringer TU300
The Boss pedal cost 3 times more ... but it doesn't change my by-passed tone ... it's more than 3 times more solid (thus gig worthy) ... it's lasting more than 3 times longer ... it's more than 3 times easier to use (quicker, brighter display, etc)
It seemed like a lot of money on a very unexciting thing, but it's the best pedal I've bought!
The Turbo Tuner ST-200 is exceptional. Much better than the Pitchblack or TU-2. I haven’t tried the TU-300 but if I ever need another tuner that will be my choice.
I wrote this before my latest lesson, to which I brought a bass. The instant response of a strobe tuner really does make tuning a bass easier. I still got there with the TU-2, which has held up for who knows how many students and lessons, but having gotten used to the Strobostomp I immediately noticed a difference. This difference, for me, was more pronounced on bass than 6-string.
To judge from forum postings, the PolyTune is well-regarded by bass players as well.
I've used both Boss TU-2 and TU-3; never had a single problem nor any noticeable degradation to sound quality, with respect to the beat-up beer joints, VFW Halls amd/or tired little coffee houses I play in. There are much larger hurdles to the quality of sound perception in situ than the quality of materials/workmanship in the buffer circuit. If I was doing something different, maybe I'd use something else.
My evil twin Skippy says that a better buffer doesn't make me a better player.
I have ordinary headstock tuners at home (snark, et al) and they work fine. I have a tuner app on my iphone, it works ok, too. I was actually in a recording studio, using another iphone app, and the recording engineer there clued me into a better app. The one I was using at the time was overly sensitive and couldn't settle on TDC for even a nano-second. The one that works, (free, btw) plusadd Tuner PTU-2.
that's all I got.
