This is my first tuner I have ever used and I had No issues what so ever getting a perfect tune on my guitar within minutes of opening the box. It can be tuned by plugging the tuner to your guitar it also has a mic to tune your guitar to if you are not plugged in. Only issue is the screen is impossible to see with any shadow over it though the top has 3 led lights that you can use to tune just tune till the top led is green. Best of all anyone worried about the durability of this product you can register the product with KORG for a 3-year Warranty. Very satisfied

The jury is still out for me on this Korg. Maybe my Martin D-35's harmonics are making it difficult for the tuner to grasp, but the needle bounces around quite a bit and seems to have trouble deciding whether the string is in tune or not. At this point I may have to use it only to tune my big E string, and then tune the other five by ear. So...like I mentioned, the jury is still out. I also purchased my first set of Martin Phosphor Bronze strings, and they definitely have not settled down yet--still going out of tune pretty easily. Soooo...I hesitate to blame everything on the tuner, BUT I still posit that it may not be able to handle the dreadnought type guitar harmonics. Maybe others can shed light on this.

Handy, useful and precise!

By Nazim Demir

from Binghamton NY

Comments about Korg GA-1 Guitar and Bass Tuner:

I bought a GA 1, from guitar center and I loved it. It is so easy to use. It works precisely and if you do not need to play on stage, this will work just great. It also has a long battery time so you won't have to change the batteries all the time. It also has a jack input which will make the tuning even more precise when used. Its price is also not much when compared to other tuners. Its simple, precise and its a killer.

Comments about Korg GA-1 Guitar and Bass Tuner:

This tuner may not be the best, but it gets the job done. At times it wont tune my 6th string and this is a pain. it tunes bass and guitar, but no other instrument. I think it was a great price especially since this tuner is decent quality. A must buy for beginners.

Great Tuner...

By Robert

from Virginia Beach VA

Comments about Korg GA-1 Guitar and Bass Tuner:

I have been playing Bass for about a year now. I have the Ibanez Bass starter kit, which is a 4 string bass setup, so i have been using the tuner it came with which really isnt too bad, but its very limited to only standard tuning, and drop D. It impossible to get into an E flat, or Low B, so I decided to get a new tuner, and was suggested the Korg GA-1. After I bought this, I went home and immediately began to tune. Standard was perfect, drop D, E flat and even tuned my E string to a Low B in just a couple minutes(if that). It is easy to read the direction you need turn the tuning heads because the tuner has a little dial like indicator showing the position of the note(if that makes sense) letting you know to turn more towards sharp or more towards flat. It also shows you in the upper left hand corner exactly which tune are are in on what string, like 4E for standared E tune on the 4th string, or 4B for Low B tune on the 4th string, or even 3D for standard D tune on the 3rd string. It is very helpful to which way you need to go to tune properly. This is a great tuner, and a great upgrade to a basic tuner like the ones that come in the starter kits for either a Bass, or guitar.

No Fuss No Muss

By George Thompson

from Lexington Park, Maryland

Comments about Korg GA-1 Guitar and Bass Tuner:

Being from the old school of music, I remember the only way to tune a guitar was to play various notes and cords or use an old fashioned pitch pipe which wasn't always accurate. Then came along tuning by way of the computer again, it had its drawbacks. This product beats both previous methods by leaps and bounds. I would highly recommend it as both a beginners tool and to be used by those who have been playing for seversl years like myself. Great device for both electric and acoustic guitars. If you can't tune your guitar with this device, you should pick up a new interest.

Great tuner, Great price!

By T.M.

from Hobart, IN

Comments about Korg GA-1 Guitar and Bass Tuner:

We picked this tuner up to use for both bass and electric guitar. It was amazingly easy to use and I was able to tune the bass within minutes. The guitar is a gift so will have to wait a bit longer before tuning. There are a lot of tuners out there with a much heftier price tag....this was perfect and was much cheaper than the rest! I definitely recommend this!

Works good but... is not chromatic, and won't help unless you always use standard EADGBE tuned strings.

      Comments about Korg GA-1 Guitar and Bass Tuner:

      At first, the needle was all over the place. But, as I got familiar with the guitar tuner AND LEARNED HOW TO USE IT PROPERLY, it was great. When you pluck a string, make sure that the proper note is being displayed. For instance, 6E, 5A, 4D etc. for 6th string E, 5th string A, 4th string D etc.
      If the guitar is WAY out of tune then the needle goes crazy until it gets to the proper pitch. Probably because it is reading harmonics and things.

      Very solid tuner

      By Pete

      from Washington

      Comments about Korg GA-1 Guitar and Bass Tuner:

      Cheap, easy to use tuner, very self explanatory layout of buttons and screen. if you need a tuner that will give you a very accurate tuning(also very good for dropped tunings) then this is the one, sure it has no real fancy features, but who needs them? just plug your guitar in and tune up! 5stars One disclaimer: i have not looked into the type of batteries this thing uses, i didnt really examine the ones that it came with but they looked smaller than triple A batteries

      Compact and reliable

      By rocknight99

      from jacksonville FL

      Comments about Korg GA-1 Guitar and Bass Tuner:

      This tuner lives up to its name. It's compact and really easy to start using. Just plug in directly and adjust string until green light stays green. (LED allows you to adjust to alternate tuning as well). If you're not going to use it in live band situation, the lights are bright enough to see 10 feet away or more in dim lighting. Tunes guitar or bass in great, tight package!

        Comments about Korg GA-1 Guitar and Bass Tuner:

        I wanted a good tuner for an electric guitar. I noticed they the same tuner in stock as my dads, the Korg GA-1. I knew his worked great and has lasted years so why not. it's worked great as expected and always gets the guitar in tune. the only complaint is sometimes it will not pick up the sound of the thickest E string but with some movement of the tuning knob it eventually picks it up so not really a big deal. if you just bought a guitar with case' even if you have a more expensive tuner it's worth getting one as a back up to keep in the case for initial an tune up.

        Worthless after battery change

        By Thomas Trojan

        from Las Vegas, Nevada

        Comments about Korg GA-1 Guitar and Bass Tuner:

        You would expect a device that runs on batteries to continue to properly operate after changing the batteries. WRONG! Despite purchasing 3 sets of new AAA batteries, and running each set through the tuner, the tuner failed to pick up the sound of any string struck on any acoustic guitar I own. Not only this model, but the silver model as well. Would not recommend these items to anyone who expects to use it past the initial life of the original batteries. Complete waste of money.

        Garbage

        By Maxx Higgins

        from Stonington, Connecticut

        Comments about Korg GA-1 Guitar and Bass Tuner:

        I bought this tuner because I wanted to get the cheapest one with the best reviews and all the tuners that received 5 stars were out of stock. When it came in the mail, I tried using it to tune my electric bass. This failed because my input wire was broken so I tried tuning my upright bass to it. On the E string, this tuner would just not do anything, it wouldn't pick up the note. I moved onto the other strings where I would play the note and it'd tell me I was sharp, and then i'd sharpen the note and it'd tell me it was flat. I saw another review where someone said it wouldn't tune their acoustic guitar, which makes me wonder if it's only acoustic instruments, but I don't see why it would work like that. Either way, this tuner made me decide to start tuning exclusively by ear, so I got something from this tuner, even if it was an indirect result.
