Good-value mini tuner

Recommended Posts

Find a used Polytune mini and don’t look back. They can be had for around £50ish on the used market I think?

I use a 'snark'. Costs about £15. Just clips on to your bass. I was dubious, but theyre very very good. When not in use just put in bass case. Theyre the size of a small watch face.

I've tried a couple of cheaper mini tuners... Ebay style things.  They perform pretty well but I got a polytune mini and have to say it is more accurate and just feels better built.

Polytune is a great pedal.  Another good cheap option is the Korg Pitchblack Poly.  Fairly small & about £50 new.  There's also the Pitchblack Mini for @ £55.

I've got Mooer rip-off of the Polytune. It's not quite as pretty, but it is very accurate and cheap! I think it was about £40 .

Thanks for the advice, everyone. I don’t think I need a polytuner as there are only 4 strings anyway. I’m most interested in small size, clear display and accuracy. The Pitchblack mini looks good.

I never actually use my Polytune in poly mode. It’s just an excellent tuner all round. Super clear, bright display and accurate!

      Hey guys,

      I'll be recording in a few weeks with my Takamine G series electro-acoustic bass, though it needs a bit of TLC. A problem that I cannot get my head around is a very specific buzzing every time I activate the onboard tuner/eq unit, which causes an almost 'beeping' style buzz every time the tuner light is illuminated (which is every second or so), so the buzz is in tandem with the tuner lights. It's nothing obvious and can't find much online about the same issue. Has anybody had any experience of this kind of thing? Any direction whatsoever would be appreciated.

      Cheers.

      Used Hipshot bass xtender type GB7 (sealed Gotoh) in gold. Retrofits existing tuner of this type without any new holes. Full working order. Light use only and in good condition except for some scratching to the retaining nut which you can hopefully see in the photos. Only noticeable if you look closely. Also the little adjustment screw has lost its shine but the gold finish over the rest of the tuner is perfect. Used to have this on a Yamaha bass that I eventually sold, so it's sitting unused. These are worth over 100 quid new - for 45 I'll include UK postage.
