PolyTune was a big deal, but so is the space on your board. A small footprint is essential for flexible agile guitarists who have places to go and people to rock. PolyTune Mini is the perfect solution for those (and other) guitarists - revolutionary PolyTune technology meets tiny footprint.

I mention this right up front because I didn't realize this tuner could do that for a long time after I owned it. It speeds tuning quite a bit and that's always helpful on stage (or at home).
* Cheaper than a Boss TU-2 by about $20, reasonably priced
* Tunes all 6 strings at once
* accurate tuning
* "Best" form factor - not too large, not too small
* 9V standard power supply, and jack is on the rear vertical surface which I think is most optimal.
* input and output jacks are on the right and left, which I think is the most optimal location.
* tunes guitars or bass in strobe mode, or needle mode, or "poly" mode i.e. all 6 strings at once
* good build quality
* available in mini format, for those who like that. I don't care for it but some do.
* available in a clip on format also, I haven't tried that.
* Honestly the only negative I can think of on this tuner is that the display can be a little hard to see in sunlight. My recollection is the Boss is a little more visible in bright sunlight. So if you play a lot of afternoon outdoor gigs, that may be a consideration.
A really great tuner for guitar and bass. Does what it is supposed to and does it accurately. Supports a whole variety of altenate tunings -- see the manual for details.
Anyway, none of that is off by much, and overall it's a very good tuner. What earns high marks is the strobe feature. Once I got used to it I found it to be very precise, and I ran around intonating every guitar I could get my hands on. It paid for itself right there. :)
-The simultaneous tuning option is kinda gimmicky. I use it to get me in the ballpark, and then I switch to Strobe mode to fine tune the problems exposed.
-The single-string modes respond quickly and crisply -- unlike the Boss pedals, which take a second to respond. That isn't cool when I'm on stage, between songs.
-Unlike the Boss, TC Polytune is true bypass. I don't know if that really matters in my set-up (2 other pedals), but at the same price as a Boss, why not?
-Easily handle non-standard tunings. (I play in Eb standard).
Great feel, fluid response, great pedal! HOLLER
I was looking to "upgrade" from the TU-2 without breaking the bank... Pretty sure I struck gold! You can't beat 1/1000th of a cent accuracy for $100. In strobe mode, this thing makes intonating a breeze. Or at least as much of a breeze as it can be when you're dealing with flip-flopping climates.
I've only had this for about 8 hours and only got to use it for maybe an hour, but I can safely say, I'm never going back to Boss for tuners. TC makes some good stuff and this is part of the treasure trove!
