    new addition to the setup

    Planet Waves Chromatic Tuner

    about $20 less expensive than the BOSS TU2. Doesn't seem as tough, though it could survive a fall it would show some dings but not completely fall apart. More tuning modes than the BOSS (strobe/sweep). True bypass. I think it's more attractive than the BOSS, but more importantly it's a good tuner. The strobe feature is really accurate.

    I've got one also. Works well. However, you can't see the display if you are playing outside during the day. I also have the Boss TU2 and actually prefer the Boss.

    Nice... I will be curious to see how that holds up... I hope well for you!


    I have the F*nd%r tuner after my boss died... yep actually had a boss tu-2 die... and I am so anal about my gear.... If Ernie Ball made a tuner I would own 3 because it would be the best.

    I may have to rig up a form of sun blocker to use it in the daylight. I'm doing a college tour in the fall and I'm sure a lot of those dates will be outside.

    I have a korg DT-10, it's been thrown accross stages, chucked about, lugged around in gig bags/cable bags, kicked, stomped on, had a full pint of coke spilt on it etc etc and it's still fine! And what's more, it's korg, so it works well

    i prefer the solid switch on the boss to the korgs.. that lil button that sticks out doesnt like being stepped on by accident

    that said, the korg tuners are better than the tu-2.. in my righteous internet opinion of course

    flats for the bongo!
    roundwounds for the fretless!

    trussrod adjustment:
    Click here for an image!
    less relief / flatter = lower action
    more relief / bow = higher action
    do NOT use cheap tools to adjust with. they break and scrape up your bass!

    if you have a 100th namm sr4: the truss works the other way around on those!

    i have no affiliation with eb other than i love their basses
