Behringer’s rack-mount tuner offers lots of features, including built-in metronome, mic and rack light — all in a slim, lightweight package.

Yes, the Behringer TU300 is the poor man’s Boss TU-2 — a plastic simulacrum of the legendary Boss tuner at 1/4 the cost. But that’s okay. What bugs us is that Behringer doesn’t specify the tuner’s detection accuracy or range. You deserve better.
The legendary Boss TU-2 is the first great pedal guitar tuner — an almost indestructible piece of engineering matched with the Boss’s fabled buffer circuit. And while its ±3.0 cent accuracy represented the state-of-the-art in 1998, you’ll probably want a more accurate tuner.
The TU-3 offers improved detection accuracy over the TU-2 (±-1.0 cent vs. ±3.0 cents), a higher-resolution display, high-brightness mode, and additional transposition and calibration options. Form, materials and build quality are exactly the same.
The compact Boss TU-3s offers the same specs (and some of the same functionality) as the full-sized TU-3 in a compact, always-on version, but the lack of mute functionality may be a deal-killer for some.
The Waza Craft version of the TU-3 adds a true bypass circuit as an option to Boss’s traditional buffered bypass, along with an awesome black paint job and cool blue LEDs. Otherwise, it’s identical to the TU-3.

Korg’s Pitchblack Portable is a strange but awesome piece of gear – a sort of hybrid pedal/console tuner with superb ±0.1 cent accuracy (±1.0 cent in polyphonic mode). Its lack of a footswitch for the mute function makes it a better choice for the workbench than the pedalboard.

Korg’s rackmount tuner delivers a bright, eye-catching “3D Visual” display, three useful meter modes and decent tuning specs — all for under $100. But is its all-plastic casing is deal-breaker?

First released in 2008, the Peterson Stroborack is still the best rackmount tuner on the market. But it’s not cheap.
