Korg PBCS Guitar Tuner Review

Korg PBCS First Impressions

"All of my guitars sound better."

Already have one, but I purchased a second for a friend. Basically everything you want and expect out of a tuning pedal at an amazing price. I'd been using Guitar Tuna and I think this gives better tuning. It's winter and I'm inside all the time, but the solar power works just fine. Not that Korgs are bad - I have like four of them.

Korg PBCS Final Thoughts

"The tuning seems accurate."

Both arrived and are still a few weeks later in perfect working order. This one I just plug into it, leaving it on my knee, and tune. The shipping could have been cheaper though. A friend was using mine and was constantly out of tune with the rest of the band. This has a LARGE display, bright red LED's, strobe and chromatic settings.
