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 :)

Excellent

corsair, 28.11.2018
I replaced a Polytune 2 with this one and I am very happy with the upgrade. I got it because of the buffer (i set the switch to have it always on) and I am very pleased with the sound improvement. Apparently, my ~6m cable was losing a bit of high frequencies and the buffer helped restore them - you can actually hear the difference.
As for the tuner itself, it is more reliable than the Polytune 2 I had. Probably it was that specific product, but in my previous tuner, the low E string would vanish quickly from the screen when tuning all strings at once. On this one it stays on like the rest of the strings and it is very accurate.
