Hey...I Personally own two electronic tuners,and am a great advocate. Not only is your bass always in tune, eveyone ELSE who uses a tuner is in tune, with you. This is a great advantage. The two best tuners I have found(the ones I own) are the Seiko ST-727 and the Korg GA-20. The Seiko is nice, as it displays the degree you are out of tune in cents, so it is very, very accurate, and has leds for dark rooms/stages. It has in and out(through) jacks, a mic for acoustics, and automatic/manual string selection. Guitar and bass modes, can tune a C on your six, down to your low B on the five, and has reference pitch change from 440 down to 435 and up to 446. It's a little longer and about as thick as a pack of cards, and takes a 9-volt battery. The Korg is much smaller, being about the size of a deck of cards, but about a quarter as thick. It has all the same fetures as listed above except the cent readigs, picth change, and through jack. It also has a few more, though. It can add up to four flats to it's tunings, each having a value of one half-step (one fret). This lets you de-tune very easily and accuratley. It runs on two AAA batteries, and is my tuner of choice for size. I have used the qwick-tune, and found it to be quite comparable to these other two. All of these tuners are in the twenty to twenty-five dollar range, and are very useful. That's my two cents.
