This is a high quality tuner from Korg. It is a pedal tuner which makes it useful for live gigs. This tuner has a bright, clear display, easy to see in dark rooms. It's superbly accurate as well. It has a wide range, and can be adjusted via a button to drop the strings down several half steps for alternate tunings. It can be used with either a 9V battery or a 9V power supply. It has one 1/4" input and two outputs, one normal and one bypass. This gives you the option of muting all of your tuning excursions, or broadcasting them through the amp. I personally never use the bypass option, but it could be cool if you're going direct as well as through an amp.
While this amp has certain cosmetic advantages, I'm not sure I would put this over the Boss tuners. The only reason being that those pedals have the ability to provide a daisy chain power supply to other pedals. This pedal does not have that option. While it doesn't seem like a big deal, it works very well in my experience. Granted, I do think this tuner is easier to use, and possibly more accurate, but that power supply thing is a deal-breaker for me. I think that the best use for this pedal is if you already have a pedal board with a power supply, or have some alternate source of power. I'm sure there are many players out there with this capability so I can recommend this tuner to all of you!
I guess ultimately the power supply issue isn't as important as accuracy, and flexibility, and the seven semitone flat capability that I discussed before is a pretty big deal. Therefore, I can highly recommend this to anyone who isn't relying on their tuner for power.
