    The Strobo Plus is more to keep around the house for recording and practice. I've actually got a Strobo Stomp coming for my bass rig.

    I've lost track of how many delay/echo units I have so let's just say this is one more. Crappy clip with pedal on.
    Had this on the cards for a while and I'm planning to use it for more hands on tweaking for those self oscillating moments. A fun unit to play with all the same.

            I returned the Turbo Plus and bought the Turbo Classic pedal, which has been on my board since I bought it.

            This was my review of the Turbo Plus from a few years ago:

            Blurb:

            Really Peterson? The StroboPlus HD? Really?????

            I lost my strobe tuner when Hurricane Sandy created a tidal wave that basically flooded the North-East corridor of the U.S. So after trying to do setups on a couple of new guitars, I knew that I needed another strobe tuner. There is nothing like a Peterson. Very reliable, and usually make like a tank. I said usually. I ordered the StroboPlus HD from Guitar Center, and it arrived quickly. I was thrilled.....for about 10 seconds. When I held it in my hands, and realized how crappy it was, I couldn't believe it. It wasn't made like the previous models. This thing felt like a cheap toy. It was plastic. They added a single plastic wheel on the front to dial through the options. There are several sweetened tunings available, and these are slight variations on the hard standard tunings. To be honest, I really didn't hear a difference in the Sweetened Guitar tuning vs standard. But that could just be me. Peterson releases updates for the unit periodically, and you simply plug in the device, and run their software, and it will update the unit with the latest firmware. Most of the updates are tweaks to the sweetened tuning options. It has a large amber display that it easy to read. I didn't try it in sunlight, but I doubt it would hinder the visibility.

            Reliability & Durability :

            I was afraid that it would break quicker than my smartphone if I dropped it. It seemed very cheaply made.

            Customer Support :

            Customer support seems to be pretty good. In my case, I'm not talking about calling them with any issues. I'm talking about the multiple updates that have been given for both units.

            Liked about it :

            The standard Peterson strobe tuning that we've become accustomed to over the years. Frequent firmware updates.

            Didn't like :

            From the moment I opened it, I hated the casing of this thing. It feels like a toy. I was positive that it would immediate break upon a short crop from my work bench or even my computer desk. I would have had to go to the 1980 store, and get some horrible deep shag carpet for the floor, in order to feel comfortable using this thing without bolting it down to the table with clamps.
            I also HATED the fact that I spent a ton of money on a toy, and was told that I had to play $49 more to activate the metronome functionality in the unit. What is this? Shareware? I can buy a phone app for $.99 that will do the same thing. Are they kidding?

            3/10 and it ONLY got 3 stars because it's a Peterson. The tunings work as they should. But the overall quality of the unit is crap. Thankfully, I was able to return it and grab a VSS-C Stomp classic pedal tuner. I'll post that review soon.

              Cheers for the honest review.

              To be frank, my first impressions weren't great either, but for now it does the job for the home tuner. I'm in the process of replacing my TU2 on my bass rig with the Strobo Stomp and probably grab the Sonic Research Turbo for another rig as well.

                Nice haul! I need to get a solid pedal tuner next, me thinks.

                  Chris will pretty much say Strobo Stomp or bust. But if you get either that or a Sonic Research Turbo Tuner, you're laughing.

                      I think Chris bought them all though, so there's none left for the rest of us to buy.

                        Congrats on the Strymon, the El Capistan is pure gold and sounds amazingly good. It's really fun to play with the pedal engaged.
