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.

Great Value, Questionable Quality.

I've owned 2 of these tuners and both stopped working about a week after I purchased them. If you need a reliable tuner, look elsewhere.

A Must Have!

By Scott

from Oregon

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>

perfect beginner tuner.

By coleman

from Savannah, GA

The best beginner tuner. This is a handy tuner. It lasted me about 3 years. It is simple and you can plug in electric guitars and it has a device that you can buy. You plug it in the tuner and clip it on the head of your guitar and it works very well. I say every one should have this tuner until they can tune by ear.

Excellent review

By Paul

from Galloway, NJ

I am very happy with my Korg CA-30 Chromatic Tuner. It is small enough to fit inside the storage pocket inside my guitar case and is very easy to use for tuning my Les Paul. I have played guitar for 30 plus years, and this tuner is the best I have used so far.

By paul altotsky

Great purchase

By Dr Drey

from Chicago, IL

An excellent tool to keep your instrument perfectly tuned. It is light, precise. The tuner comes with the required batteries so you can use it right out of the box. (Many electronic gadgest these days come without batteries, so it is very nice to see something fully equiped). It is inexpensive. I wish I bought this sooner.

Great Tuner, Good Price

By Evan

from Grapevine, TX

I started playing guitar and bass around a year ago, and was not satisfied with my pack in tuner from my Squier Affinity P Bass. I am a low tenor voice, so I can't really play in Standard; so this is a godsend. My pack in tuner wasn't a chromatic tuner, so it could only go to Drop D. This tuner is very durable, I've dropped it a few times and stepped on it once and it's still fine. Works great. It even tunes acoustics pretty well. Great buy!

Best Tuner I've Ever Used

By That guy who plays in drop B flat

from Central Connecticut

The Korg CA-30 is hands down the best tuner I've ever used. It is acurate and reliable. It tones by semitone, not whole tone like my older tuner, so you can tune to flats without difficulty. The best tuner for your buck.

Great tuner although

By Jeremy

from San Francisco

This is a great tuner. I got his about 5 months ago and it has been great ever since. Although when i tune my guitar and then play it right after, it is HELLLA out of tune, yet it said it WAS in tune on the tuner. That happen about 4 times though. Im not sure if its the tuner or guitar. I think its the guitar cause mine sucks and getting the epiphone g-310 sg in two weeks. over all GET THIS TUNER!
