Pro-caliber tuning with large, high-intensity LED meters”perfect for dark stages or outdoors.

The BOSS TU-1000 is a tuner fit for a rock star. This flagship of the famous BOSS TU-series is built tough and made for the stage floor. Its large, high-intensity LED meter provides perfect visibility on dark stages or outdoors, while the ultra-smooth and accurate motion of the tuning meter makes tuning fast, easy, and accurate.

  • Ultra-smooth, accurate motion and superior visibility with the meter's oversized LED
  • Accu-Pitch uses the motion of the meter's lights to show when tuning is complete
  • Two display modes: Cent (LED functions like a needle-type meter) and Stream (fluid light motion indicates when notes are out of tune)
  • Powering up the tuner automatically mutes the output signal, allowing you to tune without outputting sound

  • Two outputs, including one with direct signal flow

      Comments about Boss Stage Tuner for Guitar and Bass:

      I play in a band where we're all OLD and when I first set this up all the guys kidded me about losing my vision, now tne whole band checks their tuning before we start and at breaks, the bass player won't be using it now though as he's ordered his own, this is one GREAT tuner

      Large and bright display

      Comments about Boss Stage Tuner for Guitar and Bass:

      Being sight impaired, I need a tuner with a large display that lights up nice and bright. For years I used the Boss TU-2 and it's gotten me by. But my vision isn't exactly getting any better so I picked up the TU-1000 and it works beautifully.

      Very large and bright and easy to see. However, the menu displays are in tiny print but I leave it set to bass mode. Also, the package comes with a daisy-chain so you can power up other Boss pedals with it.

      It has a pitch setting so you set it for something other than 440. If you prefer to learn music by ear, and cant figure out the bridge on your favorite tunes because its not set to 440, then I guess the alternate pitch tuning is a good feature.

      The big blue BOSS emblem lights up nice and bright in the back of the unit when its turned on. Looks cool. I took it to band practice and the guys tripped out on it.

      I set it to the chromatic mode and tried to tune my 34-stringed harp (I dont really know how to play it but it looks and sounds pretty). The tuner needle was all over the place and it couldnt read the high strings very well. I use a tuning pick-up and place it on the soundboard of the harp and I thought maybe it was dying and needed to replace it. I got so frustrated that I used my 10-yeard-old TU-2 to finish tuning the harp. So for that reason, I cant give the TU-1000 a high rating.

      Honestly, I was very reluctant to spend so much on a tuner, but under the circumstances, Id say it was a very good investment. Ive had my eye on it for months, actually. I give it another two or three years and it will eventually be discontinued just like those big Korg rack-mount tuners. I think SWR made a rack-mounted tuner that didnt last in the market. Theyre great tuners but in this economy, whos got that much for a tuner when you can get a reliable one for half the price? But if you like electronics with pretty, blinky light, and you dont mind carrying a big runner around, (it wont fit in your guitar case) then the TU-1000 is a great toy.
