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.

Flexible and Reliable
Cerant, 04.06.2021
This sits at the head of my pedalboard always on buffered because I have it between a sensitive fuzz and the next pedal which is an always on overdrive. Having the option to run as always on is a nice feature to have for a quick reference during a set and still with the ability to mute should the need arise.

Having the option to switch between true bypass and buffered offers flexibility for a variety of pedalboard setups. If you want to use a buffer for a long cable run, you can; if you want true bypass across the board, you can as well.

Pros:
- Fits almost any board thanks to its small size.
- Functionally flexible.

Cons:
- (Only a minor one) It does require a power supply since batteries aren't an option.

It serves it's purpose and it serves it well and it will be staying on my board for the foreseeable future.

great tool from TC
fuzz59, 23.07.2021
I have more pros to say about this pedal than cons. The pros are the quality of the electronic features, many tuning are available to use even some features in need to study them more to understand the use, but all work fine actually. The cons will be the footswitch, it hurts a little bit the foot when you press it, need to wear some shoes to use it, it is better.
