Great tuner with a built-in buffer at a reasonable price!

In addition to its size that saves a lot of space on a pedalboard, the tuner is quite accurate particularly in strobe mode, normal mode is also very accurate and fast.
However, when setting up my pedalboard, I ended up preferring to keep it in true-bypass mode, because it honestly sounded better and felt better under my fingers, so I think it's great to be able to turn the buffer on or off, and see what works best with your setup.
Unfortunately it is not possible to use the always on mode in true bypass, because obviously when a pedal is on it is using a buffer, so it cannot be in true bypass turned on.
I really liked the switch's soft click-free feel, and I hope there will be no problems with it in the future, given the rumors on the Internet of problems with TC Electronic switches, and the difficulty of repairing or replacing them. .
Given the tuning options, different modes, a super readable display, and a built-in buffer allied with the price, I think it's probably the best option on the market.
Plus, the Noir version makes my pedalboard look even prettier. :)
I recommend it.

Ich habe mir den Tuner für die Gitarre gekauft weil die ganzen Handy Apps auf Dauer nicht akkurat genug sind. Verarbeitung und Funktionalität sind perfekt, das Pedal kann ich für den Preispunkt nur weiterempfehlen :)

Good tuner
T.J., 18.02.2021
Nice features, you can use the display in different ways, always on or not, true bypass, just by flipping the small switches on the side.
Different manners of tuning, very clear on the coloured display.
By keeping the switch pressed in, you switch from your normal tuning setup to a dropped one.

Perfect for the job(s!)
Jeroen.D, 16.12.2020
I needed actually a buffer for my pedalboard. And didn't have a tuner yet. So this is 2-in-1.
Also lot's of build in functionality for other tunings. Buffer on or off. Always on or off. Etc.

For that price, there is nothing better. Everyone needs a Polytune!
