    I need a tuner for my pedal board. I have terrible vision and tried a korg pitch black mini and even that size was hard for me. It may have been the color but which tuner has the largest display?

    ^^ Beat me to it because I wasn't paying attention to the link...

    Mount this on a couple of legs and pointed up at you. $80 It's a rack mount, but so what? :jam:

    I find the display on my polytune very easy to see in the dark or direct sunlight.

    My Shure Wireless has a nice, big and bright tuner when in mute mode.

    I was playing a show with another solo guy....kind of a song swap back and forth. Mine would not work while he was playing.

    well that would make sense I guess.
    I don't usually have that issue, even if bandmates are noodling around, I can still get tuned pretty easy.

    +1. Main string value is large letter and the strobe circle is just motion. As long as you can see motion, then you can tell it's not in tune. As soon as you see no motion, you're in tune.

    Love my Turbo Tuner, although nowadays it's relegated to intonation duty only.

    As someone whose eyesight is not what it was, especially when using a pedalboard, the Turbo Tuner is not the best option. The lettering is fine, but the spinning wheel can be difficult when you're in a situation where light to dark contrasts can screw with your sight adjustment, like when on stage or even just dimming the lights.

    Wish I had a better/cheaper solution, but as I said my Shure GLX-D wireless unit has a nice, big and bright tuner display when in Mute. Overkill for just a tuner, but hey, you can go wireless!

    One of the many reasons why I went with a Shure vs the Line-6...

    Darn it, you guys are going to push me to get this for Christmas. Lol

    The problem is that I have no problem with my boss TU3 tuner pedal with bright mode on. :hmm:
