Gear Watch: Boss TU-3 Chromatic Tuner
Built in a tough stompbox chassis, this pedal is tough. A new high-brightness meter mode allows for better visibility under bright sunlight, and it also has a 21-segment meter light improves accuracy and visibility. Tuning modes include Chromatic and Guitar/Bass, which lets you tune strings by number, supporting up to six string basses. Flat tuning mode allows players to calibrate the TU-3 for tunings up to six half-steps below standard, which is an advantage especially for metal and hard rock players that use drop tunings.
The TU-3 will be shipping this month, retailing at $160.50. Visit the Boss web site for more.
