Hit the tuner switch

Turn your E tuning peg down until the tuner says D

make sure it is in the middle of the range

Hit the tuner swutch again

and you are done, in about 5 seconds with noone hearing a thing.

I dont get whats so special about this tuner.

Does it automatically tune your guitar? (lets says your guitar is tuned to standard E and you want to quickly switch to dropped C, can you just plug in this tuner and select a dropped C setting and you will get dropped C sound even though your guitar is tuned to E)

If so id buy this, but ive never heard of such a thing...

Oh so you just turn the knobs without plucking the string.... Amazing. I need one of those.

But ive already got a huge wish list:
-Roland Cube 60 or Laney LX65D
AND
-Line 6 POD XTLIVE or Boss MT-2

Still cant decide the right combination for high gain sound

Yep, i think a couple people need to re-read the posts, it is a tuner, not a magic hat. Although Andrew said something once about his Variax letting him change the tuning of his guitar, or is that something to do with the PODXTL, I don't really know anything about Variax's... Research time! smile.gif

Yeah, its all built into the guitar, and it still doesn't do the tuning for you, it offsets the notes by a fixed amount, so if you are out of tune in Standard you will also be out of tune in Drop D - so you still need a tuner smile.gif

My friend has one of these. really easy to use. and the fact that you can power multiple peddles with only 1 ac adapter is one of the best things ever.

i'm asking for one for christmas.

TU-80 is great as well Matt,fine unit for quick tuning plus mic to tune acoustic without pickup. smile.gif
Advantage of TU-2 is mainly in "on stage" use,you don't need it for home use or som.
And you surely DON'T need it if your acoustic guitar doesn't have pickup. wink.gif

I noticed something about my TU-2 last night that really annoyed me... The so-called "bypass" isn't quite complete. When I was tuning, my amp was set to pretty much maximum overdrive and I was getting some sound leaking through. Not much, but enough to be heard.

This has to be the first time I have found a fault with anything made by Boss.

This pedal is great for tuning on stage and I saw local bands using it..Though I'd rather use a tuner that is not in between my guitar and amp (for stronger signal)..Many amps have the tuner out on them..Also some pedals have the phones output which you can use also..

Great review man very informative I was myself thinking of buying this pedal earlier!
