Korg PITCHBLACK Guitar Tuner Review

Korg PITCHBLACK First Impressions

"So, I went tuner shopping."

Not noticeable when playing gigs, though. While it did mute when the pedal was pressed, what good is that if I can't even tell. I found this easy to use, without having to consult the instructions. It was just as described and arrived promptly and packaged well! When I saw the Korg my curiosity was piqued.

Korg PITCHBLACK Final Thoughts

"Alt tuning, bass tuning, Korg."

But as long as it gives me A440 standard tuning and signal mute, it's good to go. I've had this pedal for 10 years still works great. This one has been delegated to my acoustic and works perfectly. The switch output goes directly to the Korg, and it's output to a delay and DI box. I use the chromatic setting almost all the time.
