i had the TU-2 then upgraded to the TU-3 - both very goodCheck out a Polytune, I was quite impressed with the one my mate bought recently, it's multi functional in that you can tune each string individualy or if you strum across all the strings it shows you which ones are out!
I have a Peterson Strobostomp which is good (tuning/intonation etc) if a little pricey!
+1 on the Turbo Tuner. I had a Polytune, and I couldn't see it well enough when it was mounted on my pedal board (astigmatism). It was just a blur. Even when I could see it, it didn't seem as accurate as the Turbo.I have a Sonic Research Turbo Tuner ST-200. If it ever gives up on me, I will buy another one of them...and another one...and another one. Point is, I love it. Very accurate.
Yeah, I dont get this "better" thing. If you have time to tune to within .002%.....and as soon as pull the next bend, it doesnt matter anyway.It does all that I would want a tuner to do, so I've got no reason to worry about if another tuner is "better" or not.
x2 on the Ibanez. Can't beat it for the money - and it's hard to beat even at higher prices. It's wide, so it does take up more space on a board, but it's easy to see, is simple, is very tough in construction, and tunes just fine. It claims to be True Bypass - and I haven't noticed anything in its performance to discredit that. It's just not there when not engaged!Aside from the GFS, which looks like a bargain at $40- the other sleeper at about the same price is the Ibanez LU20. Cheap, good, allegedy TB, Ibanez. Ive been using one for a couple of years- better than the Boss signal sucker.
If best = most accurate the Turbo Tuner probably wins hands down.
