Overview

The GA-40 Electronic Guitar and Bass Tuner is equipped with an output jack so you can leave your amp plugged in. An ultra-large LCD screen provides excellent visibility. Adjustable calibration range (410-480Hz). Tunes 6 & 7 string guitars and 4-, 5-, and 6-string basses. Pure major/minor 3rd pitch indication marks. Includes reference tone, microphone, speaker, folding stand, auto power off, memory backup, and batteries. This chromatic auto-tuner works with all types of instruments.

Dedicated guitar and bass tuner with large LCD for easy viewing
The GA-40 is a dedicated, easy-to-operate guitar/bass tuner with automatic pitch detection. In Guitar mode it supports seven-string guitars (7B through 1E), and in Bass mode it supports six-string basses (Low-B and Hi-C). With the precision you expect from KORG, the GA-40 indicates the pitch quickly and accurately. The LCD needle-style display provides both the accuracy of an LCD as well as the easy viewing of a needle indicator, and the display has been enlarged for even better visibility. You can also use the built-in high-sensitivity microphone to tune an acoustic guitar.

Sound Out function produces a reference tone from the internal speaker
In addition to letting you tune visually using the meter, the GA-40 provides a Sound Out function that plays a reference tone through the internal speaker, letting you tune by ear. Each time you press the Sound switch, the tone will cycle through 7B_6E_5A_4D_3G_2B_1E in Guitar mode, or through LB_4E_3A_2D_1G_HC in Bass mode.

Quinta Flat Tuning mode
To support the dropped tunings used in heavy metal styles to produce a powerfully massive sound, the GA-40 provides a Quinta Flat Tuning mode that lets you detect dropped tunings of one through five semitones. This lets you tune super-long scale guitars that extend below the pitch range of conventional guitars.

Conveniently thin and compact
The GA-40 gives you convenient guitar and bass tuning functionality in a pocket-sized package, making it easy to tune whether you're on stage or in the studio. An output jack (bypass) has been added, making it easy to check the tuning even while you're performing.

The stand on the back lets you place the tuner on any surface.

Auto Power Off function
The Auto Power Off function automatically turns the power off after the unit has been left on for twenty minutes, preventing the batteries from running down needlessly.

Approximately 85 hours of continuous use
The GA-40 is designed for long battery life, and allows approximately 85 hours of continuous use (continuous A4 input, Meter mode, zinc-carbon batteries).

*Even if a sound is within the detectable pitch range, detection may be unsuccessful for instrumental sounds that contain a large number of overtones or that decay rapidly.

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

This is garbage! It might be ok if you want to play in standard, but not everyone does. I play a four string bass and it will only tune to an e on the top string. Not to mention i have to turn it on and off ten times to get it to read. I play in drop c which is cgcf tuning. The closest it will go is b on all the strings. I would definetley not recomend it.

Gets the job done

By DEJUAN GAILES

from Durham, NC

It's a nice solid tuner. I've used it inline between my guitar and amp with success. It's doesn't change the tone at all. It isn't the most structural sound tuner I've used, but I think it would survive a few drops on concrete.

First Time User

By Nancy Scott

from White Hills, AZ

I live in a remote area and this product was not available where I shop. So, I ordered it online and received it in a short amount of time. So, far the Tuner works wonderfully. I am glad I purchased it from Guitar Center.

SO Easey to use

By Michelle Valdez

from Bronx, NY

I'm truly a beginner, trying to teach myself. This device is so easy to use, and what a great price. Tunes my guitar even when it's not plugged in. I didn't have to read the instructions. Speedy delivery.

Love it

By Tristan Nolan

from Omaha, NE

This is definitely a nice quality tuner. Especially with this price tag, you really can't beat it. The screen is much more easy to read than my old tuner, and it's very easy to use. I'd definitely buy one of these again.

Awesome Tuner

By Zach

from Lititz, PA

This is a great tuner no matter if your just staring or played for centuries. This tuner is great for guitars and basses. I use it for both my guitar and my basses. The quality is top of the line along with its accuracy. This tuner has a stand and an input and output jack which I find very useful. I highly recommend this product!

Top Tuner Ever

By Joaquin Vazquez

from Montevideo, Uruguay

I bought this tuner some years ago. It̴��s the best tuner ive had, much better than POD ones or multi effects pedal tuners. It works well with or without using the output and you can tune without connecting it to the guitar an the guitar stays in tune for long. Very good product such as for guitar as bass. I completely recommend it.

Korg is great

By Mary

from Elgin,Il

My daughter plays guitar and drums. When we went in the store first to see if the store had any and ended up having to order it I was disappointed. One that the store didn't have one in stock and two that the guy behind the counter probalbly knew as much as my daughter. She really likes it now that she has it.
