MGR/Billy's review"Boss TU-80"

Boss TU-80 Tuner & Metronome
The TU-80 is the latest model pocket or case tuner from Boss. It is slim, lightweight and can be used as either a tuner or metronome.

I found this at Best Buy for $24. I didn't know they sold music gear.

I can plug into the tuner to tune or it has a built in mic. It makes a beeping sound when my note is in tune. This feature would appeal to setting up the intonation of your instrument, new guitarists or well anyone that has trouble hearing notes.

The tuner has a chromatic mode, so say I want to tune to a C note I can do that.

The unit runs on 2 AA size batteries. I prefer this over AAA as double AAs last longer and are easier to find when they die.

The buttons are a little stiff, but I assume they built it this way so the tuner doesn't go on and off all day inside your pocket or gigbag. I guess you don't want your bag to start ticking either if you want to board a plane!

The tuner is slim and fits easy into my hands. I'd compare it to the feel of a smart phone or remote control for a cable box.

The buttons really take some effort to press, but I can live with that.

I have nice a few fine scratches have formed. I have only had this tuner for a year. Oh well it keeps on working just fine.

A very accurate and portable tuner metronome combo.

Boss TU-80 Tuner & Metronome
This is an excellent tuner-metronome.
I am not a professional and therefore it really suits me perfectly. Grant its grat becomes really easy. It can be used for an electric (by plugging a jack), as a sound through the microphone.
The visual tuning is simple.
The price, even nine, is not excessive, I have in white (available in black). It is a bit more expensive than the Korg and Ibanez but seems more solid.

I quite agree with the previous opinion on the other hand, the metronome is useless if we play hard ....

Boss TU-80 Tuner & Metronome
The BOSS TU-80 tuner is extremely accurate LCD for almost all musicians. They benefit, low-cost, high-end features such as metronome and Accu-Pitch ™. The pocket-sized TU-80 runs on batteries and can provide the most diverse instruments thanks to its color mode. Moreover, the 7-string guitars and 6-string basses do not surprise. The TU-80 is simply indispensable.

- Affordable and reliable LCD with built-in metronome, at low cost.
- Agreement and color recognition of 7-string guitars and 6-string basses.
- Accu-Pitch function sounds an alarm when the height is correct.
- Reference Tone Play function makes it easier to the ear
- The metronome has 7 rhythms, 10 types of measurement and an animated display.
- The ultra-thin line will fit nicely in your pocket or guitar case.

The reliability of a BOSS Tuner with Accu-Pitch
Thinness is often an asset. The line of the new TU-80 reduces it to a pocket size while maintaining the quality and reliability of the tuner with LCD display BOSS. Accu-Pitch function sounds an alarm when the agreement is good. This time, you can not blame the tuner!

Various methods of tuning and metronome
As the TU-80 Chromatic operates and is able to recognize an agreement more serious ("flat tuning"), it can be used to provide virtually any instrument (guitar, bass, strings, brass and winds in particular). Reference Tone Play function lets you play the correct notes. As for the built-in metronome, it is, with 7 rhythms and 10 types of measures, an ideal partner to practice playing complex passages. A must!
