Loads of tuning modes, can be used to route audio, and can power other pedals! 🙂
I see what all the fuss is about the TU-3 tuner pedal. I've held off buying one for ages and finally decided I needed to finish my pedal board with one. It has multiple tuning modes and display options, will easily deal with 7-string guitars and 5-string basses, and will allow drop tunings directly from the front panel using the mode control. One creative use I intend to put it to is to act as a signal splitter for effects pedals since there are two outputs, "output" and "bypass". This means I can have two FX chains behind it, in my case one vintage and one modern. It runs from standard 9v PP3 batteries or from a wall-wart power supply that is *not* provided. Fortunately for me, I always intended to power it from a power brick (in my case a TrueTone 1Spot) using the adapter cable that TrueTone provides, attached to an outlet that can provide 12v. The fact that it can pass along power to other Boss pedals is a major plus, and it will even feel older Boss pedals because I believe it steps down the power to conform to older pedals. It certainly powers my old compressor/sustainer pedal also made by Boss, using a simple daisychain cable. The display can be switched to a higher brightness so that it's visible in sunlight, but the power draw of the pedal really leaps up if you do, from 30 milliamps to 85 milliamps. If you're daisychaining other Boss pedals using the TU-3's pass-thru power you'll need to bear in mind that there will be less power available for those pedals in the daisychain. Similarly you will need to allow for this if you're using a power brick PSU and switch to high brightness now and then. The enclosure is like all Boss compact pedals - tougher than boots and with everything, especially the battery compartment, easy as anything to access. It comes with a battery installed that has been used for testing. You're recommended to keep a battery in there (it isn't being used if there's no instrument cable in the input) but since I don't play live I just removed it. How does it lock on to the notes? Phenomenally well, quick even on the low B on both 7-string guitar and 5-string bass. I have a Korg Pitchblack rack tuner that I've long considered to be the canines cojones, and this definitely is the equal of that unit, and takes the capabilities a bit further with features like the various flatting options. It's used all the time, and the option to use it on two signal paths makes some rudimentary pedal routing hacks available.
Robust, Simple to Use, and Is a Great Buffer – Could Be a Little Quicker
The Boss TU-3 is a great pedal to have as it’s highly reliable, and will probably last you a lifetime. Not only does it help tune your instruments, but it comes in handy to use it as a mute to cut any excess noise when you aren’t playing. I have it in my effects loop, and it works really well as a buffer to help power other pedals, and it really does revive your tone when you’re running a bunch of pedals which results in losing some of the high end off your tone. In terms of settings, there’s no shortage here as there is a simple chromatic mode, a guitar mode for standard tuning and up to 6 semitones below standard tuning, along with bass modes which you can tune to your string numbers if you like, so it’s beginner friendly. It also supports 7 string guitars and 6 string basses. It seems to support low bass frequencies very well, which I wasn’t expecting. Another notable feature is the adjustable display brightness which is really useful to turn up bright if you are playing outside in the sun, or in bright lighting. The two different output options are nice to have, so you can choose to be heard though your amp when using “bypass”, or to be silent when using “output” which I think most people would want. Also, you if you have an obscure tuning you need to use, you can set the tuner to tune from 536hz to 445hz. The only gripe I have about this pedal is the speed. I expected it to be miles faster than all the clip-on tuners that I have been using all the time I’ve been playing the guitar, but it’s not that much faster. However, its accuracy is on point. Also, sometimes it looks like it’s struggling to pick up the low E string, and I found you have to pick a bit softer to get the note to settle on the display. And, for people wondering, there is no power supply included. Overall, this is a really good pedal with multiple uses, and having a buffer in a tuner pedal (which most people have on their pedalboard) is a huge bonus. Also comes in a nice quality box. Would recommend. If this review was helpful, I’d highly appreciate if you voted it as “helpful” below. Thanks for reading.
It can tune your guitar.... !!!
I don’t understand the hype over this pedal. Why did I buy it? I had a Chinese mini pedal tuner it was okay, but then it turns my Boss EQ pedal off when I turn it on. Sometimes I forget and start playing with no EQ, no, not where I want to be. I figured that the boss tuner pedal would work in unison with my Boss EQ which it does. It doesn’t cut it out, why would it? They all rave on the net about this pedal, it tunes your guitar, like WOW WEEEEEEEE....??? That’s what it’s supposed to do... There are some odd functions on there, drop tuning if you can’t read the chromatic dial???? I didn’t even look... It’s a Boss pedal it will last.... it will tune, it won't make dinner and tidy up your house... It’s a tuner pedal... I only gave it one star for sheerness and thickness as I have no idea what that means with regards to this pedal???? But then neither does anyone so... it’s not that ‘sheer' as it’s not on the slope of a ship’s deck, it doesn’t 'swerve' and I haven’t checked ALL the other pedals to see if it’s sheerly the best ...lol and as for thickness, it’s about 60mm thick?????? Helpfull note. I have had a few of those cheap Chinese mini pedals stop working now, Boss pedals however are as a rule reliable, but yes, there are always exceptions to every rule. The pedal is fine. The picture attached? Oh don’t worry about that it’s just spam ....... what? lol

Best tuner on the market?
Just received this and seems already like one of the best tuners on the market. I shifted to headless electric guitars recently, so the typical clip on guitar tuners were no longer working for me, and I decided I needed a pedal. With the clip-on snark tuner I had issues anyway due to the cheap plastic socket breaking, the jaws losing their rubber grip pieces, and the tuner itself not being 100% accurate. Though popular, it struck me as a cheap and actually rather shoddy design. This is a far more solid and reliable piece of equipment, and the strobe tuning option allows razor sharp accuracy. If you are a guitarist and being in tune matters to you, I would definitely recommend this as a bulletproof option, though obviously it costs more it is less frustration in the long run. The display is also big and bright, allowing you to tune without squinting or bending down, a huge advantage over most others I have seen. Highly recommended.
Great Tuner - especially if you are a 5 string bass player!
At the end of the day this is not going to be the most "glamourous" pedal in your effects chain but a good tuner is definitely one of the most important - this pedal is one of the most accurate I have used. I have several 5 string basses and have struggled in the past to find a decent tuner pedal that will handle the low B string. I'm definitely glad I have found this pedal as it handles the lower string easily (I can even down tune to a low A if needed). Very clear display - very easy to see onstage in any light and is very easy to use. It is also a great Kill-Switch if put it first in the effects chain - very useful if you regularly need to unplug your guitar/bass without the hassle of turning off a tube amp. The final plus is that it can also be used to power other pedals using the AC out socket on the back. Would definitely purchase another one if this one became lost or damaged.
Fast, clear and accurate.
This was an upgrade on my board from a cheaper tuner pedal that has served me ok but was at times difficult to read (especially at outdoor gigs) and could take a little time to lock in. The Pitchblack does not give me any of these problems. It’s display is huge, easy to see and locks in immediately and perfectly. The other guitarist in my band uses the polytune and that is a great pedal too but at the price Amazon are selling the Pitchblack it’s a no brainier between the two because this is every bit as good in my opinion.
