BOSS TU-3S Guitar Tuner Review

BOSS TU-3S First Impressions

"A nice, basic tuner."

It did look a bit fragile so I decided to get a small protective case. So bright and clear you don't have any trouble seeing it, and very fast response! This one has been delegated to my acoustic and works perfectly. It's quite accurate, very portable and easy/quick to use. For convenience and simplicity it can't be beat.

BOSS TU-3S Final Thoughts

"Excellent tuner for bass guitars."

Already have one, but I purchased a second for a friend. This is a great tuner, especially for the money. Decent tuner, but the tuner on my Line 6 M5 is more accurate. I use this clip to clip onto the tuning pegs of my hammered dulcimer. UPDATE: Sent it back in exchange for another.
