Attached tuner

I remember in high school, my bass player had this cool tuner that mounted to his head stock and felt vibrations for tuning. Does anyone know of a good one or just to not get one and get a pedal?

Re: Attached tuner

they're always at guitar center and most of the time at local stores. Planet waves makes a good one.

Re: Attached tuner

Yeah, they're pretty good, very precise, glow different colours depending on your tuning, and a choice between a piezo or mic on it to tune through.

However i lost mine, but its irrelevant because i have a tuner in my pedalboard nowadays.

Re: Attached tuner

I've got one, its an "eno et-3000+" my brother got it for me for christmas, but yeah its really accurate, easy to use, and very "fast" and i think unless your a gigging musician, frequently on stage, a pedal tuner just isn't necessary. So id say unless your playing a show every night id get a headstock tuner as its about a third of the price of a pedal and jsut as good.

Oh, in that case i'd recommend you buy a Boss TU-3. Simply because you can also power other pedals off it. So if you have a boss tuner and seven other pedals, you can power them all from the boss tuner. Saves you spending stupid money on a power supply. However you DO have to buy a supply for the boss tuner, but you can just match the power requirements and get a cheaper one for like $15 rather than a boss one which is tons more.

Just saving you money.

thats kinda what I wanted to hear.

Cat -> cool, didnt know that. Those things are pretty hefty in price though, for a tuner anyway. Ill cruise the bay and see if i can get a good deal on one

Re: Attached tuner

I know a few guys who gig with a headstock tuner instead of a pedal. If you are in a dark bar, the green glow when it's tuned is easy to see and it's almost at eye level. Mine was 20 bucks and it works great.
