        Comments about Boss TU-80 - Tuner/Metronome (Black):

        It works great and has some features most other tuners don't have. I wish it was a colored screen or had a green indicator light, but that's alright. I would definitely recommend this product.

          Not only does this cool little tool work like a charm, but B&H service was, frankly, breathtaking. It arrived two days after I ordered it - that is, from nine pm on Monday when I put in the order to ten in the morning on Wednesday. Terrific. Mike

                I'm no guitar expert but I've been playing for a few years now. I've tried several different tuners while playing guitar with friends and, with the exception of really high-end tuners, this is the best tuner I've used so far. I've had this tuner for a while now, I just bought another for my brother who, after using mine a lot, requested this specific one for Christmas.

                It's very accurate, although it may take a few seconds to recognize a note sometimes.

                        I use this tuner for tuning my string bass (aka upright bass, double bass, bass fiddle, etc.) It works extremely well for tuning by plucking the strings (most tuners I've tried in the past don't) and very well with the bow. The metronome works very well too, though I wish the sound were more of a 'click' than a 'beep' (the sound can be turned off). The display is large and clear, and the unit is intuitive and easy to use. Overall, I'm very pleased.

                            Purchased this for my son...who uses it when he is practicing for his piano lessons. He's 10 years old. He never even ask me to help him with it and he's been using it for almost two months now. He said he would give it a 9 out of 10! It is well worth[$]
