This is a pretty reliable tuner, and great in many ways. The tuner has 1/4" input and output, as well as an output that completely bypasses the tuner (this is cool sometimes, trust me). The unit comes with a power supply that powers the whole operation. In addition, this tuner features an option where you can "daisy chain" up to 7 more BOSS pedals (plus a few others that feature almost identical power supplies, such as the Ibanez tube screamer). This type of tuner is especially useful on stage, as it will cut out the signal while it's on, so the audience doesn't have to hear you tune at all (which is good, because nothing annoys me more when I'm in the audience at a show, and I hear the guitar player have to tune for a minute between every song). There is also a feature that will allow you to use the tuner, but still hear the signal (the aforementioned bypass output). The thing that makes this especially unique is that you can use it chromatically, so guitar players can tune to almost any instrument. You can also hook it up to a microphone, assuming you have the right connections. That way, you can tune horns as well. That's probably the only way you can tune anything but a guitar with this guy. I'd say only guitar players and bassists are really going to use it anyway, so it's probably fine that there is also a "guitar/bass" setting which will only register the string pitches. Anyway, this is a very useful tuner, especially if you want to use it to power a few other pedals. I'd highly recommend this tuner, it's probably the best one I've used in my 10+ years of playing. It's reliable, hasn't broken on me or anyone else I know who uses it and it gets good results without actually having to let you hear it!

I bought it a week ago, I find it very good, it is a chromatic tuner, it was exactly what I wanted to be able to give me more serious, it works well, it reacts quickly, it is What his job. Well it's over for that price € 30 must not atendre a super tough thing (it is plastic), but hey I do not want to invest in a boss 100 €. It also gives the notes for those who would like to give a ear. Small tip instead of buying a boss Take a selector and connect the tuner and left the lit, and when you need to change your channel. I put 10 because it does very well what is asked. To see consomation to the battery level and slidité long term.
I use this tuner for ... ... oula! Long (about 4/5 years if I remember his good)! I never needed to change the batteries. Otherwise, I did not really asked about the model, or tried other tuners: the seller told me "This one is not bad for the price", I took that one.
Precision tuning remains quite good for the price even if it is not top notch, but it is more than enough! It is strong, lightweight and transports easily. For the price, this is pretty good! The microphone is still accurate, although I still prefer my guitar plugged directly into it. However, it remains quite correct for tuning classical guitars.
The price / quality ratio is unbeatable at the time, really great!
I use it for 4 years, never changed the batteries.
Compact, fair, easy to use, works very well with my 5-string bass, what more?
In addition to the look is nice, it never leaves my bag (except of course when I used)
