Durable, Precise, and Roadworthy
Schengis, 23.06.2019
I've been using this tuner for a couple years before buying my own. I tour in a band that's on the road for 50+ gigs a year and this little guy is up to the challenge. I've seen this thing dropped, stomped on, spilled on by all manner of things, and frankly just manhandled... you name it, this tuner can take it in stride!

One of the best things about it is how well you can fit it to your personal needs. I use mine pretty much how it came out of the box, our bassist uses the "always on" function for live tuning, and the singer/rhythm player uses it as a mute when he decides to jump down into the crowd. It performs just as well on battery as plugged. I could praise this thing all day but here are some pros/cons:

Pros:
- Built to fit your personal needs - customizable
- Extremely durable and maintains precision
- "Plays well with others" (as in pedals and effect)

Cons:
- Easy to drain batteries if not careful
- "Polytune" function not 100% useful/accurate in on-stage situations
- Some latency in pitch detection in lower register guitars

A must-have pedal.

Well built tuner pedal with everything you need
MisterPlacebo, 14.12.2018
I have nothing to complain about, and only good things to report!
I have tried several tuners with my 5-string bass, but none are so good at detecting the B (H) string as the PolyTune 3.
The display is bright enough for me to see in daylight and darkness, and is easy to read.
There is a dip-switch that enables true-bypass or the Bonafide-Buffer (Bonafide-Buffer also exists as a separate pedal, if you're not looking for a tuner).
There is also a setting to switch the mode between guitar and bass.
I also have an electric 6-string cello, whose strings are also easily detected by the Polytune 3.
In my pedal-chain, it is the first pedal - as far as I can hear, I have noticed no degradation or change in the sound whatsoever. To me, it sits transparently, being a wonderful silent partner enabling me to produce pleasing sounds with my band :)
