BOSS Announces the New TU-10 Clip-On Chromatic Tuner

With its ultra-precise tuning accuracy and stylish, compact, and durable design, the TU-10 is a must-have addition to any case or gig bag.

Los Angeles, CA (Jan 19, 2012) — BOSS announces the TU-10 Clip-On Chromatic Tuner for guitars and basses. A number of unique and useful features, along with BOSS accuracy and reliability, make the TU-10 a true standout among clip-on style tuners.

With its ultra-precise tuning accuracy and stylish, compact, and durable design, the TU-10 is a must-have addition to any case or gig bag. The impressive true color LCD dramatically improves visibility even in any lighting condition, and makes tuning simple, with the current pitch shown simultaneously via a streaming meter display, flat/sharp arrow indicators, and a note-name readout.

The TU-10 also has a monochromatic mode, which turns off the backlight and provides double the battery life. To help users tune even more quickly, the TU-10 incorporates BOSS’ proprietary Accu-Pitch function, which displays a positive visual confirmation when the correct pitch is attained.

With many clip-on tuners, the joint between the meter and the clip is the most fragile part of the tuner. On the TU-10, there is no joint: the meter and clip are one solid piece, for superior strength and reliability.

The TU-10 also supports flat tuning up to five semitones down, a feature rarely available in clip-on designs. Flat tuning is particularly desirable for guitarists and bassists that play heavy rock and metal styles.

The TU-10 will be available in April 2012.

Gibson 1960 Les Paul 0 8145 is from the final year of the model’s original-production era, and likely from one of the later runs.

The story of 1960 Gibson Les Paul 0 8145—a ’burst with a nameplate and, now, a reputation.

These days it’s difficult to imagine any vintage Gibson Les Paul being a tough sell, but there was a time when 1960 ’bursts were considered less desirable than the ’58s and ’59s of legend—even though Clapton played a ’60 cherry sunburst in his Bluesbreakers days. Such was the case in the mid 1990s, when the family of a local musician who was the original owner of one of these guitars walked into Rumble Seat Music’s original Ithaca, New York, store with this column’s featured instrument.
