The 3 Top Tuner Pedals
What’s interesting about tuner pedals is that they are a common presence across all genres. Whether you play deat hmetal or acoustic ballads, the need is still there. So when we look at the most popular tuner pedals on the pedalboards of today’s top artist, we get a wealth of information. What would be considered the top tuner pedals are no surprise.
The Top Tuner Pedals – Most Popular
Definitely the most popular tuner pedal has to the Boss TU-3, or its previous incarnations. It is by far the top tuner pedals on many artist’s pedalboards.
The Top Tuner Pedals – Features
While the Boss TU-3 is a dependable, durable pedal from a top-notch manufacturer, it’s features have hardly changed in the past few years. The TC Electronic Polytune Chromatic pedal tuner changes all of that, bringing forward an innovation greatly needed in this category. This pedal allows for you to play all your strings at once while the pedal displays which strings are tuned too low or high. This information allows you to attack the culprit string directly, saving much needed onstage time between songs, reducing the amount time your audience will hear the “Tuning song”! This feature could very well propel this new pedal among the top tuner pedals.
The Top Tuner Pedals – Price
While features are important, tuning is still a simple, straightforward task. There are budget-friendly options out there that do the same thing as the top tuner pedals at half the price. My personal favorite in this category (and the one I currently use) is fender’s chromatic tuner pedal, which you can find often at more than half the cost than the Boss TU-3.
