Last updated on May 28, 2024 8:02 pm Details


In this review post, we’re going to be discussing the Behringer TU300 Ultimate Tuner, including an overview of its unique features.

Product Description

For the gigging guitarist or bassist, the CHROMATIC TUNER TU300 is an absolutely essential piece of gear that goes above and beyond the capabilities of ordinary tuners. No matter what musical situation you find yourself in, the TU300 is always ready to help you put your best performance forward!

Most guitarists and bassists tune to standard tuning: (low to high) E, A, D, G, B, E for guitar, and E, A, D, G for bass. Still, others like to detune their instruments for access to lower notes and increased string flexibility. No matter what you prefer, the TU300 can accommodate. That’s because this amazing TU300 gives you 3 guitar modes (regular, flat, double flat), 3 bass modes (regular, flat, double flat) and a chromatic setting. Whether you stay in standard tuning, detune, or tune to an exotic tuning of your own design, the TU300 will get you there quickly and accurately.

To begin tuning, simply stomp the TU300’s footswitch. The single-digit LED display shows which note it’s reading and the 11-point stream guarantees accurate tuning. TU300’s super-bright display panel makes it easy to tune – even in the darkest club! The main Out jack allows you to cut the signal to your amp while you tune, or you can send a constant signal from the Bypass output. The status LED tells you when the TU300 box is activated and the solid electronic on/off switch maintains incredible signal integrity in bypass mode. You can power this pedal with a standard 9 V battery or our PSU-SB DC power supply.

Tune up quickly and easily with the CHROMATIC TUNER TU300. Check out this little lifesaver at your nearest Behringer dealer, or grab several TU300s online to outfit the whole band!

Our Verdict

It arrived in the normal stomp pedal cardboard box, which was in excellent condition. When we initially got the TU 300 out of the package, we thought it was quite decent for a $34 stomp pedal. It’s composed of plastic and appears to be rather durable. Like other pedals of a similar design, it incorporates a rubber push footpad.

The unit’s base is composed of non-slip rubber and was easily adaptable to our pedalboard. Placing the battery was a little difficult at first; you have to press in each hinge pin on either side of the footpad to access the battery compartment. The pins appear fragile and may break over time. The battery box is not as easy to access as it is on some other brand guitar pedals.

We plugged in the TU 300 and noticed that the inserts were smooth and the pedal was silent, with no humming or buzzing. The tuner seemed a touch sluggish while responding to each string’s stroke, but after a few moments, we didn’t seem to notice. Switching between tuning settings with the MODE switch, as well as changing LED display modes with the STREAM/CENT button, was smooth and uncomplicated. Even while the pedal is active, the ByPass insert allows the signal from the guitar to reach the amp. We utilized the TU 300 during a live event and it worked flawlessly.

We were reminded of the Boss TU 3 by the Behringer TU 300 Chromatic Tuner for Guitar and Bass. Although the unit is made of plastic, it appears to be strong and durable, and it performed admirably during a live performance. We had a few concerns with the battery compartment, but nothing that couldn’t be resolved easily.

Overall, the Behringer TU 300 Chromatic Guitar Tuner is a budget-friendly option that we would suggest to any guitarist or bassist.
