I’ve decided I want a tuning pedal for conviencience and functionality.

I’m currently having to unplug my amp cable to my basic Stark SN3 (red).
Gets a bit annoying after a while.

So the question is. Which one? I like the WAZA one with the bypass switch, but is it worth it other than that?

I was on track to buy a Boss tuner, but abruptly changed my mind and went Korg Pitchblack Advance.
0.1 cent accuracy and 4 display modes (Regular, Strobe, Half-strobe, Mirror). True Bypass and silent tuning.

No regrets, I love the Half-Strobe mode.

Oh that sounds good!
Actually, having a look at the Korg ones ....the custom shop one looks nicer.

Nice... I have a Korg Pitchblack Custom inbound... can't wait. Just like the cool 3D look of the blue/green display. ;)

As for the OP's question... TU3 vs TU3W... I'd spend the extra and get the Waza, since it has a true bypass switch. I don't dig Boss's buffers (which is what you get with the regular TU3).

Nice!

I dunno, I thought about the Custom, but the Darth Vader / Cylon / Knight Rider vibe of the Advance kinda won me over.

:cheers:

Pitchblack Custom. Huge display and very stealthy looking. Simple yet effective.

The blue may be too bright ...maybe the advance one would be nicer.

Alright, I ordered the Advance model.
It’s best to run these straight out the front of the amp, right?

Or off to the side....

Generally the tuner is the first pedal in your chain. It doesn't go in the the loop.
