Overview

The Korg CA-30 Chromatic Tuner gives you a high-precision LCD needle-type meter. Wide range of pitch detection covers C1-C8. Calibration function lets you specify concert pitch. Built-in high-sensitivity mic. Produces reference tone on internal speaker and has marks for pure major thirds and minor thirds. . Auto power off. Low draw gets up to 100 hours of battery life in continuous use.

Wide Range of Pitch Detection

This compact chromatic tuner supports a broad range of C1 (32.70 Hz)--C8 (4186.01 Hz), allowing speedy and high-precision tuning of wind, string, keyboard, and other instruments. This tuner is ideal for tuning even low-register notes containing numerous overtones that are often difficult to tune. A high-sensitivity mic is built-in, allowing easy and accurate tuning of acoustic instruments such as ukuleles. A separately sold CM-100 contact mic can also be used to send the vibrations directly to the tuner for even more accurate tuning.

Ultra-compact body with a "Tilt Slit"

Although the CA-30 is small, thin, and light, don't let its pocket-sized body fool you. The CA-30 packs the functionality needed for tuning a wide range of instruments. From studio to stage, tuning is easy and convenient. The back of the unit includes a unique arc-shaped "tilt slit" that lets you insert a plastic card for use as a handy stand.

High-precision LCD Meter

The meter section uses a LCD needle, combining the accuracy of an LCD with the easy visibility of a needle, and providing a stable display. Additional visual feedback is provided by LEDs that indicate pitch deviation.

Sound Out -- Internal Speaker Provides a Reference Pitch

In addition to visual tuning via meter, the CA-30 can play reference pitches from its internal speaker (Sound Out) for tuning by ear. Each press of the Sound switch will cycle through the A4--Bb4 notes commonly used for tuning wind instruments. Or you can hold down the Sound switch to change the cycle to the semitone intervals from C4 through C5 (one octave), allowing reference pitches for any instrument to be sounded quickly.

Calibration Function

The Calibration function (410--480 Hz) supports a wide range of standard pitches, and can be adjusted in 1 Hz steps for accurate and flexible tuning to any song or key. Thanks to the Memory Backup function, the Calibration and reference pitch are remembered even when the power is turned off. (However, these settings will be initialized when the batteries are replaced.)

Auto Power Off Function

If you leave the unit powered-on for 20 minutes without performing any operation, the Auto Power Off function will turn the power off automatically, avoiding unnecessary battery consumption.

Approximately 100 hours of Continuous Use

Low-power consumption design allows an amazing 100 hours (approximate) of continuous battery life (A4 continuous input, Meter mode, zinc-carbon batteries).

This Korg chromatic tuner is a fine example of how a good quality company continues to make very good quality products. This tuner is able to fine tune a guitar directly through the input jack or another instrument through the external microphone. It is powered by triple A batteries. I have been using this tuner for two years and have never had to replace the batteries. It can be easily calibrated and has a very easy to read digital screen. The tuner will display if the guitar is sharp or flat and to what degree it is. There are led lights to indicate if it is not in tune. If it is close it will show a green light. This is a great tuner that has everything a guitar player could need.

I bought this tuner about 6 months ago and have never been satisfied with its performance. The needle bounces and the lights flash eratically so it is very difficult to tell when you are in tune. Also, the note name changes back and forth so it is hard to tell what you are tuning to. I bought a different brand and have been very satisfied with it.

A Must Have!

By Scott

from Oregon

Comments about Korg CA-30 Chromatic Tuner:

I've had one of these for years it will tune a guitar or bass spot on and any friends that used it like it better than their more expensive and digital tuners. I get a lot of complements when someone uses it I may have changed the batteries once maybe twice. Also at my local Guitar Center it's the same one used by the employees to tune an instrument for you! I got mine by just picking it out but after using it I say get this tuner if you need one>

This Thing is Wicked!!!!

By SHAMROQ

from New York,NY

Comments about Korg CA-30 Chromatic Tuner:

Up until yesterday I was stuck in the world of pitch pipe tuning...then my teacher suggested I get this chromatic tuner...it's totally wicked!I love this thing and I love that I can plug my electric fiddle right into the side and get an instant reading and it works great for tuning my cello so now I don't have to go buy a separate pitch pipe.For the small price I paid and the speed in which it arrived, (I ordered it just 2 days ago and it's already here) I definitely got more than I expected!!

Best Tuner Ever!

By KrankDat

from Undisclosed

Comments about Korg CA-30 Chromatic Tuner:

Man does this thing work well! It's DEADLY accurate, has a nice feeling and the battery lasts SO long! The only thing that I don't like is that the battery cover comes off if it's abused. This is a great tuner and I recommend it to of my students and all guitarists.

Handy Tuner

By Strat4Me

from USA

Comments about Korg CA-30 Chromatic Tuner:

I keep one of these in my gig bag always. Not only does this make a great little back up tuner, it is also excellent as the main tuner you need to rely on. It comes in handy for tuning everything from guitars to harmonicas, and is plenty accurate too. It is small and does not take up any room. This is the tuner I always recommend when someone is looking for an inexpensive tuning solution.

Cheap, quick, easy to use. I'm a beginner and I can tune my Ibanez in under 30 secs! The input makes it amazing for electrics! Worth the money!

A tuner for all situations

By Matt Kniser-MJTmb

from Oregon

Comments about Korg CA-30 Chromatic Tuner:

I love this tuner. I've had mine for over six years and it's still going strong! When I started out playing the guitar I had a crummy pitch pipe and an untrained ear. This thing tunes six times better than the human ear! It?s size makes it incredibly convenient to carry anywhere. I play several instruments. And this little guy can tune them all. Acoustic guitars, electric guitars, bass guitars, mandolins, banjos, I even knew kids in high school orchestra that used this to tune their violins. The digital pitch pipe is cool too because I use it to give me reference pitches so I can tune my drums. Yes it can even help with drums. This tuner can probably do a whole lot more than what I?ve mentioned. It?s an incredible tuner, and has more features than you?d expect for it?s price tag. The only problem I?ve had with it is that it does tend to pop open if it?s dropped on the floor. Just put black electrical tape on the top bottom and the side without the cable outlet and your set!

You Won't Be Disappointed

By Debcakes64-4hp3j

from Chicago

Comments about Korg CA-30 Chromatic Tuner:

This is an outstanding tuner for the money. In fact, I find it's far more accurate that plugging my electric guitar into Garage Band or any other software with an online tuner (if you happen to record directly into your Mac or PC as I do). I always tune up with this tuner first. It's also small, flat and portable for dropping into your gig bag.

Easy to use...

By Murff

from North Dakota

Comments about Korg CA-30 Chromatic Tuner:

I've had this tuner for a few months now, and I have no complaints. It's very easy to use, and works every time. I tune my guitar before I head out to my lesson, and when I get to my lesson I use their "more expensive" tuner and my guitar is always in perfect tune. I have only used this on my guitar and I always just plug straight into the side.
