      Superior features include a large, easy-to-read, LCD needle-style display.

      The Korg CA-40 Electronic Chromatic Tuner has wide range that covers A0 (27.50 Hz) - C8 (4186.01 Hz), you can tune a variety of instruments with the Korg CA-40, including wind, string, and keyboard instruments. The pitch and range are detected quickly and accurately. You can use the built-in high-sensitivity microphone to detect the pitch of an acoustic instrument without the need for any other equipment. Alternatively, you can use the separately sold CM-100 contact microphone to send the vibration of the instrument directly to the tuner, so that you can tune accurately without worrying about other sounds in the environment. An output jack (bypass) has been added to this digital tuner, making it easy to check the tuning even while you perform.

      Conveniently thin and compact The pocket-sized CA-40 features a refined design with a stand on the back that lets you place this digital tuner on any surface.

      Large, high-precision LCD meter
      The CA-40's display has been enlarged for even clearer visibility. In addition to providing both the accuracy of an LCD and the easy viewing of a needle-style meter, red and green LEDs are also provided to indicate pitch deviations, making tuning smooth and easy.

      Sound Out function
      In addition to letting you tune visually using the meter, this digital tuner provides a Sound Out function that plays a reference tone through the internal speaker, allowing you to tune by ear. You can adjust the reference tone in semitone steps over a range of C4 through C5 (one octave) to accommodate a variety of instruments. Since the reference tone you specify is remembered, it's easy to sound it again whenever you need to.

      Adjustable Calibration
      The Calibration function of this hand held tuner lets you adjust the pitch in 1 Hz steps over a range of 410 - 480 Hz in order to accommodate a variety of concert pitches, giving you the flexibility to tune accurately to any song or key. There's also a memory backup function that preserves the Calibration setting and Sound Out settings even when you turn off the power.

      Auto Power Off function
      The power of this digital tuner will turn off automatically if the unit is left powered-on for 20 minutes without performing any operation, avoiding unnecessary battery consumption.

      Approximately 85 hours of continuous use
      The CA-40 is designed for long battery life, and allows approximately 85 hours of continuous use (continuous A4 input, Meter mode, zinc-carbon batteries).

      * Even if a sound is within the detectable pitch range, detection may be unsuccessful for instrumental sounds that contain a large number of overtones or decay rapidly.

      ** The calibration setting and the Sound Out reference pitch are remembered even when you turn off the power. However, when you replace the batteries, these settings will be initialized to the default values; the calibration will return to 440 Hz, and the Sound Out reference pitch will return to A.

      Korg digital tuners and metronomes purchased from a Korg USA authorized dealer now have a three year warranty.

        This tuner does was it's supposed to do, and has never given me any problems. Tuning accuracy is very good, through either the 1/4" jack or the built-in mic. After a tune-up with this guy I'm always precisely in tune. There are no fancy features, but it does what it does well. It's also small, easy-to-read (even in the dark), and very easy to understand. I've used it daily, and still haven't had to replace the batteries.

        The price is reasonable, and this tuner does what it's designed to: tune your instrument. I recommend it; it's a good buy for the price.

        I could not get this product to hit the "O" mark at all. It would jump from left then to the right. I had Brand New Duracell Batteries in it also.

                I was super satisfied with my purchase. I use it with my concert ukulele. It's very accurate and easy to use. I'm a beginner and tone deaf and I had no issues tuning it perfectly!

                    I did a lot of research on tuners, and for the price, this little guy is a winner! I can plug my bass directly into it, and it has an out to my amp. It also has a mic for tuning acoustic instruments and horns. It can fit in a case or my pocket, and doesn't need a wall wart.

                    Been using a Korg digital tuner (DT-1) for guitar since the mid 80's and finally had to replace it after 29 years. The quality is still there and I like the CA-40 even better, especially with a contact mic.

                      Great little Tuner especially when setting up the guitar when changing strings or after removing of same for thourough cleaning. Especially usefull if using a different gauge string when experimenting with different sounds. Takes the guesswork out of a tedious but necessary task. The needle does not wander all over like some tuners and with the twin lights you can tune with fractional movement and nail it.

                          Bought specifically for tuning a hammered dulcimer, this is easy to use and shortened up the amount of time it takes to tune it.
