Korg GA1 Guitar Tuner Review

Korg GA1 First Impressions

"Way to get it half right."

This tuner worked as good as any at a lower price than many I have seen and used. Low speed is the most visually intuitive for guitars, trumpets & etc. The shipping could have been cheaper though. A cheap replacement for an Epiphone or such. I also own and occasionally break out an auto harp and a fiddle.

Korg GA1 Final Thoughts

"Awesome tuner."

It has a soft touch switch, so there's no noise when turning it on or off. When only one is showing, you are not quite in tune yet. This product was received as expected and works as advertised. I would recommend this for any musician, especially good for guitar. I hope Korg keep making this one, it's a really good tuner!
