BOSS TU-2 Guitar Tuner Review

BOSS TU-2 First Impressions

"You can get an exact degree of tuning."

These are typical of BOSS quality but, the first ones I've owned of this style. I play in tunings such as E flat standard, Drop D all the way to Drop A. If the color stays white and the meter points LEFT you are in low tune. It was easy to use and easy to know when each string was in tune. I recently purchased the BOSS and I love it.

BOSS TU-2 Final Thoughts

"Good buy for the price."

Thanks BOSS for a great tuner and thanks Amazon for the great price! I especially like the fact that it can be set to tune through vibration only. This one has been delegated to my acoustic and works perfectly. Plus, it comes with easy to read instructions and a free sticker. I use alternate tunings almost exclusively, so this thing gets a lot of use.
