    If the piano is being used in the same music, it does not matter. You still tune to the piano. Otherwise you are 100% correct.

    Yep, it is all relative in the end.

    I'm old enough to remember tuning to the keyboard player (an old piano in my circle), and more commonly to the trumpet player. I remember arguments about my tuning fork being incorrectly tuned, about the analog signal generator out of calibration (despite confirmation with an o'scope), and others.

    For me, one of the boons of the electronic tuner era is the ease and accuracy at which we can tune.

    +1 for Politune clip

    TS, the metal clip is the one of the most importnant things in the tuner construction. I used to use a lot of cheap plastic tuners but they all died because of the broken plastic base and clip.

    I use a Snark but I have a TC Electronic polytune. I use to have on my board but took it off, to make room for another pedal. But I use the TC when I am working on guitars and my basses.

    This one is and has been the road worthy work horse for a few years. Boss makes some rugged pedal boxes, no doubt about it.
