Preferably something $100 or less and something very reliable. I have a lot of guitars to set up so accurate intonation is key.
My tuner's reliability isn't in question, it was meant as a statement. Disregard the incorrect punctuation. Thanks
The one most shops use is the Boss TU-12H - has high & low settings plus you can plug it in to a Boss 9V power supply so you don't run down the battery. Really accurate. They go for about $80.

For the story of Bertie Marshall as steelpan scientist, pan pioneer and tuner extraordinaire, I recommend to you Dalton Narine's documentary and the ongoing discussion on the excellent internet discussion forum " When Steel Talks ". There you'll find steelband legends comfortably mingling with aficionados in what is possibly the most informed and engaged site on all matters Pan.
I’ve always been a bit of a shock to the head when he was tuning my guitar, but is not a pedal I could not live without: my Boss TU-2 Chromatic Tuner.Then you will understand how excited I was when on my new BOSS TU-3 comes in the mail today. I want to run down the specifications for all other tech-geeks and gear-there:
* The 21-segment LED meters with adjustable brightness – there is also a high brightness mode that improves the visibility settings meters outdoors, cutting through the toughest tiles off and allows the user to see the LED screen, even under direct sunlight.
* The Accu-Pitch Sign provides a visual control to the user when the adjustment is complete.
* The chromatic Guitar / Bass mode allows the user to adjust the string of numbers, now with added support for 7-string guitar and 6-string basses.
* Flat Tuning says something very practical in fact called Guitar “mode. Basically, this little number allows the user to take advantage of a flat drop tunings or tuning” Flat six semitones below standard pitch. Wow!
And finally I'm really fussy about tuning, so my third pedal would have to be my trusty Boss TU-2 tuner. GT: Do you play another instrument well enough to be in a band? DK: Actually I played bass on one of the songs on the Roger Waters tour.
My touring bass rig (had more basses, just didn't take them out on tour)... It was all stolen a few years later (out of my house no less). I've since replaced most of the stuff. This pic was taken at a small club Grog Shop in Cleveland Ohio, prior to...
All set up and ready to rock. Well, except the cables between the pedals...
I should really look into completing a Roy G. Biv pedalboard...
Jimmy has more guitar pedals than any person I know. More than any two people I know.
