Overview

The Korg GA-30 Guitar/Bass Tuner is a high-precision LCD needle-type meter. Unique Korg feature lets you tune down to 5 semitones flat. Internal speaker produces tuning reference tone. High-sensitivity internal mic for tuning acoustic guitars. Auto power off and low power draw for very long battery life.

An Easy-to-Use Dedicated Guitar and Bass Tuner
This dedicated guitar/bass tuner lets you select either Guitar mode or Bass mode for truly easy operation with automatically detected pitch. The wide detection range supports 7-string guitar (7B through 1E) in Guitar mode, and 6-string bass (Low-B, Hi-C) in Bass mode. A high-sensitivity mic is built-in, allowing easy and accurate tuning of acoustic guitars.

Ultra-compact Body with a "Tilt Slit"
Although the GA-30 is small, thin, and light, don't let its pocket-sized body fool you. The GA-30 can accurately tune any guitar or bass. 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 GA-30 can play reference pitches from its internal speaker (Sound Out) for tuning by ear. Each press of the Sound switch will cycle the output sound through 7B->6E->5A->4D->3G->2B->1E in Guitar mode, or LB->4E->3A->2D->1G->HC in Bass mode.

Quinta Flat Tuning mode -- a world-wide first!
The GA-30's Quinta Flat Tuning mode supports the lowered tunings used in heavy metal styles to give more weight to the sound. Until now, dedicated guitar tuners have supported a maximum of only four semitones below standard pitch, but the GA-30 gives you five steps of flatted tuning, extending as far as five semitones below standard pitch, and supporting even super-long scale guitars that are five frets longer than conventional guitars.

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).

* Even if the pitch is within the detection range, detection may not be possible for instrumental sounds that contain a large number of overtones or have a rapid decay.

Korg tuners and metronomes purchased from a Korg USA authorized dealer now have a three year warranty.

This thing works, and it works pretty well if you know what you're doing with a tuner. It's getting low-quality marks from me because, after it fell ONE TIME from a height of about six inches (not an exaggeration), I now have to remove the back cover and hold the batteries in for it to function. Still, though, for what it costs, you can't expect an indestructible device. I might very well buy another one (and try to handle it like eggs).

Great Tuner

By Josh

from Anoka, MN

Comments about Korg GA-30 Guitar/Bass Tuner:

This is a really good tuner. I've tuned my bass and my friend's guitar with it and it works great. When you're tuning through the input jack it doesn't take any sound through the mic, so you could tune while someone is playing guitar right next to you. It's strong too. I've dropped it a bunch of times and it hasn't boken yet.

Easy to use and cheap

By Kevin

from Loomis, CA

Comments about Korg GA-30 Guitar/Bass Tuner:

Use it for both bass and guitar. Works like a charm. The battery lasts forever! The red and green lights that indicate if you are out of tune or coming in to tune make thingas even easier especially if you are not in great lighting. Have never had any problems with it whatsoever. One time i thought it was malfunctioning but I was a dummy and forgot to turn my Guitars volume up.

It tunes...

By Demonmonkeee

from California

Comments about Korg GA-30 Guitar/Bass Tuner:

This tuner gets the job done for a mere $15. I's Incredibly user friendly and easy to use. I reccomend it for anyone, but I don't have too much experience with tuners. The only other tuner I've ever had was low quality and fell apart, but this one is infinitely better. I've had it for 3 years (full of wear and tear) and its still working fine. A good piece of equipment to say the least.

Comments about Korg GA-30 Guitar/Bass Tuner:

This thing is great. It doesn't suck out all of the battery life and tunes your guitar perfectly. It is also very sleek compared to the older ones. Highly recommended.

best of the pack

By SantanaRocks

from Palm Bay, FL

Comments about Korg GA-30 Guitar/Bass Tuner:

I got this tuner three years ago with a cheap guitar that I purchased. The guitar has long been dead and the tuner is still going. I have used it for accoustic and for electric and works well in both counts. Good job, Korg!

Basic Guitar Tuner

By Baxter

from Baltimore, MD

Comments about Korg GA-30 Guitar/Bass Tuner:

I own this tuner (Korg GA-30) and the chromatic CA-30 tuners. I keep this one with my guitar amp because it is lightweight and it is foolproof. The LCD display is not backlit and this is a problem in dimly lit places, though there are indicator LEDs that mitigate this problem. It has been durable but the construction is a notch below the GT-3, which I used to own as well.

Great Value!

By Anonymous

from chicago

Comments about Korg GA-30 Guitar/Bass Tuner:

This is an awesome tuner. I bought this when I started bass about a year ago, and it has served me and my band very well. This tuner not only tunes my bass well, but can do my other bandmates' guitars. On top of that, it can tune acoustic guitars just as well as electric with the built in microphone. It is quick and easy, and very small and light. If you need a great tuner, look no further!

Pro tuner-JACK BLACK

By Stratman421

from Seattle, WA

Comments about Korg GA-30 Guitar/Bass Tuner:

Ive owned this tuner for a few years, and hasn't failed me since. its a great tuner because it gives you a sample of what the actual string is supposed to sound like. Also, if you watch school of rock, jack black uses this tuner right before he sings his "material".

Tuff Stuff

By PetRose

from kalymnos, Greece

Comments about Korg GA-30 Guitar/Bass Tuner:

I've got this tuner for about two Years and really great. It gives the exact sound of the strings. It doesn?t waste batteries at all, I have the same ones since a bought it and its working perfectly. It has taken some seriously nasty falls and it?s like nothing never happened, that proves its Durability. It?s a product 100% worth it, no regrets.
