This tuner is accurate and very easy to use. The fact that I can tune in a noisy environment is of incalculable value to me. The entire package is small, compact enough to fit easily in my case, along with who knows howmuch other gear. My one gripe is that it seems so fragile that I'm afraid to take it out sometimes. I guess a beefier verson wouldn't be as sleek or handy though. This is a worthy item. Buy it.

I have owned the Korg AW1 Tuner for three months and I must say that the Tuner does not cut it! First, the battery faded out within two months eventhough I used it two times in a month's span. The battery dried out eventhough the tuner was off all that time. Secondly, if I was tuning my five-string bass, this tuner could not decipher or grasp the frequiency on the 5th string (B). Thirdly, upon replacing the battery, thebattery lid broke and it had to be taped-- even when the battery change was done with utmost care. Additionally, when playing under minimal light you cannot read the screen. This tuner represents a bonafide attempt to implement good technology. Yet, it falls short from that!

Didn't last

By Avalon5

from Tucson AZ.

Comments about Korg AW-1 Acoustic Chromatic Tuner:

Loved using it while it lasted. The accuracy was dead on. But the back light issue is truly annoying along with the short battery life. I was willing to overlook these problems but it failed dead after 6 months. For the money I think we deserve better from Korg.

Great little tuner...

By Tim Priddy

from On a cruise ship

Comments about Korg AW-1 Acoustic Chromatic Tuner:

I play trumpet professionally, and am psyched to have this little gem. The only downside is that it is not back-lit, probably to conserve battery life, but it is quick--not like the old LCD displays of the past. The piezo pick-up eliminates background interference and with the accompanied clips, will work on almost any instrument. It is a bit pricey, but well worth it.

Awesome Tuner

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Korg AW-1 Acoustic Chromatic Tuner:

I just got this tuner as an "early" Christmas present after my GA-30 broke. Let me tell you, it fills the GA-30's shoes and more. It reads drop D on my bass fine, and I can accurately tune my mandolin, and I'm sure it'll work great on my gibson once I get that fixed up. If you want a good tuner, skip over the cheaper ones Korg makes and go for this one.And the case is cool too!

This is the one

By GreenGidget

from Mars

Comments about Korg AW-1 Acoustic Chromatic Tuner:

I was using the Intellitouch PT1 Tuner for my acoustic guitars, but it couldn't handle my electice guitar or my bass. The bass player in my band loaned me his Korg and it did the trick. If you're playing electic or bass, this is the tuner you want. If you're playing acoustic only, you can save $10 and get the Intellitouch.

Excellent, but Expensive

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Korg AW-1 Acoustic Chromatic Tuner:

This is ideal for acoustic instruments, because you don't have to worry about room noise messing up the reading. It's incredibly accurate--I never have to fiddle with it to get a "good" reading, like I would have to do with a traditional "mic" tuner.With regard to the battery issue mentioned below--I have not had any problems with it. I replace the battery about twice a year, and am good to go. On the other hand, I treat it well, IE turn it off when not using it.Mine was stolen a few months ago, but I like it so much I am going to shell out the cash and buy another one!

Not what I expected

By Educated Consumer

Comments about Korg AW-1 Acoustic Chromatic Tuner:

One of these was handed to each member of my band and needles to say, about half as many broke within two months! Additionally the battery on mine was replaced twice within two weeks. If we played in a night club wjth dim lights, we could not see the screen. Other fellow musicians reported the same mishap. On the other hand, the tuner was very accurate in its readings for guitar and other stringed instruments (including mine (I am the bass player). There are better and cheaper options here.

Comments about Korg AW-1 Acoustic Chromatic Tuner:

The price of this tuner should be no more than $30, when you concider the materials used and the battery draining issue. We use the tuner every week and will not tell you when the battery is going down-giving incorrect tuning readings-My daughter is a violin player, she knows when anyone is out of tune-she don't trust the tuner resdings. For me-is a good thing, because I depend on my tuner. The bottom line is: good design, poor materials, battery issues and needs a back light.

Excellent!... but needs backlighting

By Jozman5150

from Mount Shasta, CA

Comments about Korg AW-1 Acoustic Chromatic Tuner:

I bought this tuner prior to a long gig in the pit band for a musical. We ended up using it on all of the numerous stringed instruments in the band (banjo, bass, classical, dreadnoughts, and electric guitars). This tuner made show prep a breeze and is one of the best investments I have ever made. I do however wish that it had some sort of backlighting, but that really is it's only flaw. My bottom line on a product is if I lost it, would I buy another one?... and my answer on this tuner is a most definite YES!!
