Roadie RD250 Guitar Tuner Review

Roadie RD250 First Impressions

"Fits great with my tuner."

There are three modes available, which are selected by internal DIP switches. For this alone, it's an improvement over the TU-2. But hey, you are not supposed to step on your tuner. I previously had a tuner where you had to switch the unit for each cord. This is the best pedal tuner I've found so far.

Roadie RD250 Final Thoughts

"Always a nice bonus in my book."

You wont have that size screwdriver at a gig, so use a coin. The Roadie Guitar Tuner works great. I've used it for several gigs and had no problems. They lock well, look great and adjustments are great with the 19:1 turning ratio. Great used pedal, these things are workhorses.
