Noisy ?
coffeecup, 18.09.2021
Mine is noisy when I put it on the pedalboard. Also noisy with a battery. I also noticed it changes the tone a little (it really shouldn't)..I don't understand why.

I will edit my review when I try it with a different power supply.
The manual says 600mA PSU minimal and maybe that's the problem - I don't have 600mA (but who does??). The screen probably is the reason for such big power needs.

Lovely
Thonk, 18.02.2020
A really nice bold tuner. Great onstage, super visible.

The Different settings for the method of tuning are neat.

I've always gone Korg for 30 years with regard to tuners rather than Boss.

I much prefer the huge screen this has.

Best tuner I ever had
Shinigamy91, 13.03.2018
Completely honest review, from frustrated low tuning guitar player :)

I am extremely positively suprised how accurate and fast this tuner is. Especially with tuning drop tunings (standard A tuning and drop G). On standard guitar tunings, it's extremely precise, up to 1 cent precision. On low A string I managed to get precision within +-2 cent difference. To be honest, it's almost impossible to get more precise than that with low tuned guitars. Harmonics also very easy to measure.

Has multiple modes, both needle and strobe tuner (bare in mind, this is not a strobe tuner, but it can act like one), and hybrid modes in between, kind of combination of both worlds. One that I use the most is these hybrid combos, as I like strobe tuners a lot!

Quality wise, a pedal is tough and really well built, for heavy duty guitarists. Lighting on the pedal is amazing, it shows very clear from different angles. Light is also very bright and nice to see on stage. Fits within pedal boards very nice. I haven't used yet cable power management, but I do not doubt it works just as fine.

Finally, I have found a really precise tuner for the not insane amount of money! I recommend this to anyone who was having troubles with tunings, especially in studio work! Never get out of tune again ;)

Perfectly readable and precise
Spinner Deluxe, 15.06.2020
Fantastic display for the older eye. Precise enough to fine-tune the bridge setup for proper intonation.

I also liked the pass-through of DC power to feed other pedals on the board.
