Overview

The KORG Pitchblack Chromatic Tuner is now available in various collectible colors, but only for a limited time. The Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner offers you high precision, advanced functionality, and sleek style to make it KORG's most advanced guitar/bass stompbox-style tuner yet. The Pitchblack tuner has a tough aluminum die-cast body that will endure hard use on the road or in the studio. The large LED meter and note name display with light-emitting surface is easy to read in any setting from daylight to stage light to no light. The extremely smooth eleven-segment LED meter allows accurate visual tuning from any angle. The Pitchblack has a red LED to indicate on/off status and a tuning range of E0 (20.60 Hz) to C8 (4,186 Hz) with adjustable calibration between 436-445Hz.

The Pitchblack's LED meter can be switched among four display modes including: Meter, Full Strobe, Half Strobe, and Mirror.
Meter mode
Similar to using a needle meter, tune your instrument so that the green LED in the center of the LED display lights and both tuning guide LED's are lit. The tuning LED's will be to the right of center if your instrument is sharp, and to the left of the center if your instrument is flat.

Full Strobe mode
Tune your instrument so that the LED meters stop streaming and both tuning guide LED's are lit. The LED meters will stream from left to right if your instrument is sharp and from right to left if your instrument is flat.

Half Strobe mode

Tune your instrument so that the LED meters stop streaming and only the green LED in the center is lit and both tuning guide LED's are lit. The LED meters will stream to the right of center if your instrument is sharp, and to the left of center if your instrument is flat. When the pitch is correct, only the center LED will be lit.

Mirror mode

Tune your instrument so that the two LEDs on the left and right sides of the center LED meet in the middle and both tuning guide LED's are lit. The pitch lit LEDs will spread farther apart the more your instrument is out of tune. The left tuning guide will light if your instrument is flat, and the right tuning guide will light if your instrument is sharp.

100% True-bypass output keeps your tone intact
The Pitchblack mutes the input signal for silent tuning, and when you're not tuning the input is passed directly to the output jack without being affected by any circuitry (True Bypass). So even if you connect the Pitchblack between several of your favorite pedals, the signal will pass without going through the internal buffer amp, ensuring that the sounds you've created using your effects will not be colored in any way. The Pitchblack is designed to coexist transparently with other effect pedals.

A perfect fit in your pedal board plus the DC output powers other pedals
The Pitchblack is designed to fit conveniently into your pedal board system. It provides a DC OUT jack that can supply power to other effect pedals when the optional AC adaptor is used. By connecting optional DC cables, you can supply up to 200 mA of power to multiple effect pedals, simplifying the power connections in your pedal board.

I was torn between this and the boss TU-2. I took a chance based on some reviews I read about the Korg. I was not disappointed in any way. This pedal is super responsive and has no lag whatsoever. Tuning is very accurate. The mute function works just like it should, and the display is easy to see. I plug it into the 9v daisy chain on my pedal board and it's ready to go to work. If I had to choose again, I would take this over the Boss without question. Great product.

This tuner is nice and accurate for bass and guitar. The problem is that the switch button comes loose and falls out, and it is pretty tricky to put back together. You have to find a very thin-walled and long socket driver to hold the nut in place (one from a standard set is probably not going to work) when you do get it reassembled to tighten it all up. The lights are not visible in bright daylight, but that's to be expected. I would have given it 5 stars if the switch were not such a pain.

Legendary name keeps it's game

By Michael

from new mexico

Comments about Korg Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

so, i bought this tuner about a week ago and let me tell you it is amazing. first of all, it has a super sleek body in black! this thing is beautiful. the LED meter is very easy to read and see onstage, outside wherever you're ajammin! so i've been a fan of Korg tuners for a long time now and this stomp box is nothing short for what Korg is famous for. I was torn between this and the BOSS chromatic tuner but i decided i wanted superb accuracy over style. the bypass works perfect without any disturbance. save some money, buy this tuner! you will not regret it!

love this tuner...

By David Rogers

from Elgin, Illinois

Comments about Korg Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

I can't express to you how much you should get this pedal. It's more, if not AS, accurate as the Boss tuner, and it's cheaper. (What more could you want?) buy it. if you're smart.

A Great Little Tuner

By David

from Hayward, Ca.

Comments about Korg Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

This is a great tuner and it performed exactly like I was hoping. I have a rack tuner with my bigger amp but needed something I could use when I use my smaller amp in certain venues. I especially like the "true bypass" feature, which means I can use longer cords if necessary to extend it out to my mic and not have to go back and forth to use it. No noise from this unit whatsoever and it was quick and accurate to use. It seems durable, though I only used it twice so far, and I would recommend it as being very good for the price.

Awesome Tuner

By P.J.T

from Hartford, CT

Comments about Korg Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

I just got this and it is awesome. The LED lights are clear and able to see perfectly. I have it in my pedal board and I used to use a clip-on tuner, now I don't think I'll ever go back to the clip-ons. This tuner is the best for the money.

Perfect pedal board tuner

By JohnnyFi

from Rochester Hills, MI

Comments about Korg Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

Just picked one of these up, and I'm very impressed. Solid housing, transparent to the signal chain, easy to read display, and super small. And when you take into account Korg's reputation for tuners, that puts it over the top. For the money, it's the best tuner you could add to your pedal board.

Completely satisfied

By Andrew

from Escanaba, Michigan

Comments about Korg Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

This was the first pedal tuner I ever bought and all I can say is I am completely satisfied with it. It's far more accurate than the handheld tuners and it's so much easier not having to unplug my guitar from my amp every time I wish to tune. If your looking for a great pedal tuner you can't go wrong with this one.

AWESOME AWESOME Pedal tuner

By STiTCH

from Minnesota

Comments about Korg Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

Best pedal tuner out there, i've been using for about 3 months. Its got 4 modes single input and output,it mutes your signal when you turn it on. I was a little worried about the "clicking, Popping" that i read about in the other reviews I'VE NEVER HEARD ANY POPs OR CLICKS :D This is the first pedal in my signal chain, a tuner pedal should always be first in your signal chain no matter what It has a large, bright display that you can see on a dim light stage better than the Boss TU-2 over all its a great tuner a MUST BUY !!!

This is the one!

By Alanix

from Baltimore, MD

Comments about Korg Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

I had also been flip-flopping between the Pitchblack and the TU-2. Based on the $10 price differential and the $10 rebate, I decided to buy the Pitchblack. Frankly, I would have paid full price sans rebate and been very happy with the Pitchblack. I'm an old-school guitarist, and once owned the original Conn Strobo Tuner, and I must say, that, for accuracy, this is the best I have used since then. The display is large and easily visible in both daylight and onstage. The most Bang for your buck out there. It hosts the same Power Chain that the TU-2 does, but the display as well as the accuracy (+/-1 cent) puts the Pitchblack over the top. It also looks cool as all hell when turned on, and practically invisible when deactivated. The True-Bypass is True. Can't say enough good things...buy it.

Great Pedal!!

By Brandon

from Kansas City, MO

Comments about Korg Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

I placed this pedal in the mix with a cry baby wah, 808, a blues breaker, Keeley compressor, line 6 delay and a memory master chorus..you get the idea. I have a lot going on, on my board and was worried about the pedals ability to work in the background. When you click on this pedal all goes silent which is great. The display is nice and big. Its a snap to tune on the fly and then click the pedal back off and go back to playing. I highly recommend this pedal. Its basic but good.

Best pedal ever used!!

Amazing!

By Dustincbc

Comments about Korg Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

This is by far the best tuner pedal I have ever used. I previously owned the Boss TU-2 Chromatic Tuner and the Pitchblack pedal is way more responsive than the Boss.

Perfect Pedal

By Doug McMillen

from Seneca Falls, NY

Comments about Korg Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

There is only one tuner to get, it is the pitch black. The bypass is perfect for onstage tuning...the display is big and dials in your sound with ease. Do yourself a favor and pick this up. I left it plugged in overnight and it did not eat my battery, which was surprising.

Great option

By Bill

from Topeka, KS

Comments about Korg Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

As a long time BOSS TU-2 user, I had gotten frustrated with the sometimes chaotic response of the tuner to certain strings (like the B string). It would dance around the pitch, saying within one second that the string was both sharp and flat. I understand that there is some variation, but it was not helpful in getting the string tuned properly. The Korg Pitchblack has solved that for me. It has a very stable display, and accurately represents the useable pitch of the string. Sometimes it may seem a little slow as it approaches, but I would prefer that to the uncertainty that my TU-2 gave me. My guess is that the Pitchblack takes a larger sample size from which to analyze the pitch of the string. However it does it, it is a big and desired improvement for me. I also really like the large and bright display, the quiet switch, and the solid build. Together, it makes for a great overall package. I have no doubt that this tuner will last me as long as my TU-2 has (over a decade).

Perfect Tuner for any player

By GrittyMan

from VENTURA,CA

Comments about Korg Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

I cant believe I ever thought I wouldnt need one of these during a gig, well once the music i played got more complex and required tuning between songs quickly and quitely, Hensons highly recommended this pedal, The LED displays are great but youll definitely need to play with the setting to get a display thats comfortable with you,the only problem ive ever had is the responsivness of the tuner,, but even then the tuner is Fantastic

Amazing Pedal Except. . . (PLEASE READ)

By Tyler Vanderkooy

from Maryville, TN

Comments about Korg Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

Everything on this tuner is amazing. It is basically the cheapest pedal tuner, it is made of a SUPER THICK plastic that will not break, and it is super accurate and has a couple of different awesome modes. I love that you can just hit the string, and it will sense that that string has been hit for about 20 seconds or so. And, it doesn't try to get you to move the tuning peg in the most minute fashion. I just wish that it was harder to push down the button. You could drop a pen on this thing and it would do it. And I wish that it made a click. But, this is not a big problem. Main story: BUY IT!!!!!

Good Tuner

By DirtClod

from Bartlesville, OK

Comments about Korg Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

Just bought this and it's "true bypass" is true and it works. A very accurate tuner. Place it first in your pedal-chain and you should love it! I can clearly see this thing on a darkened stage and that's really nice. Only slight drawback is no AC adapter included, but for those with power supplies, it's no big deal. I would imagine that a 9V battery will last a while in this thing.
