Great tuner with a built-in buffer at a reasonable price!

In addition to its size that saves a lot of space on a pedalboard, the tuner is quite accurate particularly in strobe mode, normal mode is also very accurate and fast.
However, when setting up my pedalboard, I ended up preferring to keep it in true-bypass mode, because it honestly sounded better and felt better under my fingers, so I think it's great to be able to turn the buffer on or off, and see what works best with your setup.
Unfortunately it is not possible to use the always on mode in true bypass, because obviously when a pedal is on it is using a buffer, so it cannot be in true bypass turned on.
I really liked the switch's soft click-free feel, and I hope there will be no problems with it in the future, given the rumors on the Internet of problems with TC Electronic switches, and the difficulty of repairing or replacing them. .
Given the tuning options, different modes, a super readable display, and a built-in buffer allied with the price, I think it's probably the best option on the market.
Plus, the Noir version makes my pedalboard look even prettier. :)
I recommend it.

Look No Further!
Sil Albers , 24.09.2019
I bought this pedal when it came out and it is amazing. It is very well build. I believe that this pedal will serve me for the rest of my life.
It has everything you want in a tuner execpt for one thing. It only tunes at 440 Hz. For me that is not a problem but maybe for you it is. It has a strobe tuner and you can strum all your strings at ones to see which need tuning.
It has different tunings as well. Like drop D and stuff like that. It also has capo modes so you can tune with a capo.
And lastly is is very small. It will fit on any pedalboard.

If you need a small, well build and versatile tuner pedal...

Look No Further than the PolyTune 3 mini!

Fast and sleek but is it accurate?
Christos M., 20.11.2019
The TC Electronic Polytune 3 mini Noir is an almost full-featured pedalboard tuner in a really compact form. It responds fast and switches from polyphonic to single string tuning fast and without glitches.

You can only tune to a base 440Hz with this tuner, so beware of that. No battery operation either.

As for the tuner's accuracy, there is a somewhat rough edge. When set to strobe mode, the polyphonic tuning completely agrees with the strobe single string tuning and with my peterson stroboclip tuner. Everything fine here. But, if you switch to needle mode (which is more convenient for me on stage), the low E string shows a little flat in polyphonic mode. If you tune it up, it shows a little sharp in single string mode. Not a massive difference, but it is a bit concerning. It is probably something that could be fixed with a firmware upgrade but the polytune 3 mini firmware cannot be upgraded. That's a bummer. So, if your pedalboard has enough space, go for a full size polytune 3.

Fully featured and compact tuner
R.B.D., 16.07.2019
As you wonld expect from any good tuner, it is very precise on it's on.
i wasn't to sure about the polytune feature but i was surprised to see it in action. Even though it is less precise than the regular tuning systeme, it alows to see quickly wich strings need to be retuned wich is not the biggest gain of time ever but comes in handy when you don't have a lot of time between songs.
And switching from the standard tuning programme to the drop d program is a real treat.
The best part is the size. Really compact so it doesn't take up to much place on the pedalboard and the screen is big enough to read easily.

Probably the best tuner you can find.
