GUEST,Texas Guest Help me! I need the perfect tuner (51* d) Help me! I need the perfect tuner 08 Mar 08

Folks, I've got a real problem and need your help. Although I am primarily a solo performer I threw myself into a North Texas band
recently and one of the bandmates is driving me nuts with this -

No matter what I do, according to her, I am usually out of tune and she's quick to correct me on it. I use a little Korg electric tuner when unplugged, and on stage I use a Boss TU2 - the stomp-on type
that takes you out of the mix. I often guest with folks at festivals and such and I've never had anyone complain about my being out of tune; but, with her I'm never in tune.

So, the question is: what do you consider to be the most accurate
electric tuner for the professional musician? I happen to really like my Boss TU2; and, as a matter of fact, Jed Marum and I do work
together and he uses them as well - and we've never complained about either being out of tune.

Any advice out there, short of duct taping her fiddle? Cheers.
