The World's Best-selling Stage Tuner — Improved!

The TU-3 is more than just a rock-solid, dependable tuner for your guitar rig — it's practically a modern legend. The latest member of BOSS's world-famous TU Series, the TU-3 is made to work night after night, stomp after stomp. And since it now features a high-brightness mode for your outdoor summer festival gigs, it'll work day after day too — you can bet the TU-3 will be glare-free, offering up a large, clear LED display to help you get in tune.

As far as display goes, you have a few choices in how you prefer to tune up. Whatever you do, the Accu-Pitch function gives you visual verification whenever you're in tune (very handy). The TU-3 also has a chromatic mode for tuning by note name, then there's Guitar/Bass mode that lets you tune by string number — even string number for 7-string guitars and 6-string basses. Finally, there's a Guitar Flat mode for those of you that like to rock Drop tunings, down to six semitones below standard.

The BOSS TU-3 is definitely a pedalboard must have — and its predecessor, the TU-2, was the world's best-selling tuner pedal for good reason: it just works. What's also cool about the TU-3 is that it can supply power for up to seven BOSS compact effects pedals, so you can keep your pedalboard neat and tidy, and your power strip free of nasty wall warts. Get in tune, stay in tune — get the BOSS TU-3.

TU 3

Love it. Dead on and quick to to find the note and tune. No bouncing around. Very clean through my rig.

Boss TU-3

The Boss Tu-3 is unsurpassed as a pedal tuner. It's already saved me at least a $100 in set-up fees because it's easy to fix a guitar's intonation without going to a guitar shop. Plus Kurt from Sweetwater is great to work with.

Great tuner

Got this tuner to play on stage with the praise and worship team. Easy to see in any light conditions. Only use it in chromatic mode but seems to be very versatile with many other modes available. Simple to use, easy to understand controls and works great!

Sweetwater Advice

Jared Kalish

This pedal is an absolute lifesaver when you're on stage. I can't tell you the amount of times my bass has gone out of tune after I've been really laying into it for a song or two. Just look down, stomp the box and get yourself back to sounding like you should.
