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.

        Completely intuitive and reliable. I have my tuner split out from my main signal so I can keep it on at all times, even while i'm playing.

        Solid.

        By SALLY MYEONGYONG SON

        from Seoul, South Korea

        Comments about Korg Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

        That's the word I'd like to use to describe the Korg Pitchblack. Solid in what it does - tune. Solid in what it doesn't do - create noise. Solid in build. Solid in looks. Now the size is roughly the size of the TC electronic polytune, so it isn't too big, but not as small as the polytune mini or noir. The tuner itself is transparent and will keep your tone intact. Who can complain about the cost? Only $70? I'm sold.

        Great product. Fast results without anyone having to hear you get closer to true tune (important for live gigs). Easy to use.
