Overview

The Pitchblack is one of the most popular tuner, loved by professionals and amateurs around the world. The Pitchblack Advance is Korg's next-generation model, a further evolution that features an advanced cutting-edge form and many of the functions and technologies developed for previous models of the Pitchblack series. Embracing both the traditional and the revolutionary, it represents the perfect summation of pedal tuners.

Featuring a slanted design that hints at a new age, the Pitchblack Advance retains the toughness that is characteristic of the series, in spite of becoming even lighter in weight. The display features high-brightness color LEDs, nearly doubling the size of the note name display and providing amazing visibility. Whether you're on a dimly lit stage or outdoors in bright sunlight, this display will always be easy to read.

When using strobe mode, the Pitchblack Advance allows ultra-high-precision tuning with ±0.1 cent accuracy. It's a great choice for exacting situations where even slight errors cannot be tolerated, such as in professional recordings or stage performances.

Choose from four meter display modes to suit your playing style. In addition to the standard “Regular mode,” you can use “Strobe mode” or “Half-strobe mode” in which the direction and speed of meter movement indicate the pitch change for easy visualization of even minute differences, as well as “Mirror mode” in which two LEDs move from left and right to coincide in the center as you tune.

The true-bypass design allows the input sound to be output with absolutely no change (when the tuner is off). In other words, the tuner circuit does not change, degrade, or color your sound in any way. Since the input sound is completely muted when the tuner is on, this unit is ideal for use on stage.

If a separately sold AC adaptor is used, the DC OUT jack can supply power to another effect unit. Since a dedicated power supply circuit is provided for DC OUT, it can provide stable and noiseless 9V 200 mA power.

The Pitchblack Advance provides a stable playing environment for all players. When using a power supply, for example, noise can be caused by interference between different pedals using the same power supply. The Pitchblack Advance is equipped with a circuit that suppresses sudden changes in current, and also applies software control, thereby completely avoiding the occurrence of such noise.

The eight-year journey of the Pitchblack series has brought its high efficiency and long-life design to an even higher pinnacle. With approximately 30 hours on zinc-carbon batteries and approximately 60 hours on alkaline batteries, this unit achieves ultra-long-life operation that is six times greater than the Pitchblack. Even on a long tour or an extended recording session, it will continue to fulfill its role as your faithful partner.

    Great Product

    Comments about Korg Pitchblack Advance Tuner:

    I previously used the old Planet Waves chromatic tuner from way back until it finally died on me. The thing I really loved about that tuner (aside from its accuracy) was the big display which made things easy during live situations. With that in mind I took a chance on the Korg Pitchblack Advance and was not disappointed. It's light, but the metal casing makes it heavy enough where it won't move around during use. Tuning accuracy is great as well as the ability to recalibrate higher/lower than 440Hz if required. The display in all its various modes is intuitive and very easy to read particularly in live situations and the true bypass shows zero effect on tone. I've only had it a few days so can't comment on longevity, but so far I'm very happy with this purchase. I imagine most gigging musicians would feel the same.
