Great tuner especially for the price !!

I use it on my regular guitar and on my 5 string bass as well. Seems to be very accurate and easy to use.

For years I stayed away from Korg because my first two broke down. I been using the QuikTune models for years with no problems Sadly they are not on the market anymore. I purchased this model on sale and so far it has not given me any problems. I like the compact size and features it has for the money. Check out the video. FYI because of it's size it uses AAA batteries. Not a big deal.

    Comments about Korg GA-1 Guitar and Bass Tuner:

    I'm a newbie, but this made tunning my guitar a breeze - even for someone who really didn't know what he / she was doing.
    Easy to operate and configure.
    Seems built really well.
    Compare to others, below the price of others but still does the job.

    Comments about Korg GA-1 Guitar and Bass Tuner:

    Just bought a guitar and got this tuner to go with it. Never owned either one so I thought I'd need a tuner. Very easy to figure out even for a complete nooob like me. I'm sure more expensive ones have a lot more bells and whistles, but for a beginner like me this one works fine.

        Comments about Korg GA-1 Guitar and Bass Tuner:

        This is a good tuner. Although, the tuner does not register very low notes on the bass and the needle fluctuates a lot on the screen. Overall this tuner serves its purpose very well.

        Awesome little tuner

        Comments about Korg GA-1 Guitar and Bass Tuner:

        If all your looking for is a cheap little tuner, you can't go wrong with the GA-1. I used a Korg for years and the only reason I'm not still using it is because someone swiped it at a gig.
        People who whine about this tuner are forgetting that it's not a thousand dollar tuner, it's an affordable tuner that works perfectly for me. I own a 5 and 6 string bass and it tunes them with no problem.
        Everything Korg makes is tuff stuff. It's not armor plated, but it will survive in a gig bag for a long time.
        It's affordable... You get enough bells and whistles to be worth that. Besides, it tunes your instrument. For the price, that's a good deal.

        Not for an acoustic

        By LTD

        from Seattle, WA

        Comments about Korg GA-1 Guitar and Bass Tuner:

        Works fine as a basic electric guitar tuner, but the mic will barely pick up the sound from an acoustic guitar. Don't buy for tuning your acoustic.

        I have the korg ga-1 and i like this little tuner it is so pocket sized and easy to use. I like it because you do not have to plug it in to the guitar. it listens to whether it is tuned or not.

          I have used this tuner for several years now. I actually had one stolen and replaced it with the same model because I liked it so much. It offers consistent tuning and an easy to read display. Don't get fooled by apps on your smart phone; a good tuner is a must for every guitar player.

              I saw this tuner and thought WOW! a Korg tuner for this cheap!It was a little difucult to figure out the controls but once I did Icame to the low E string to tune and even with my electric plugged into my apmplifier it would not pick up the sound.So i plugged the guitar into the port on the tuner and still nothing.Better to spend some more money on a better one.

                Oops, I switched guitars and showed up for practice without a tuner. Had to tune by ear from the piano. Now I keep one in each guitar case 'cause they're cheap enough to afford several. Great tuner. Fits the case pocket with plenty of room to spare for extra strings, capo, nail clipper, reading glasses ('cause I'm an old dawg) etc. Buy several!

                    Comments about Korg GA-1 Guitar and Bass Tuner:

                    Worthless
                    Apparently tries to guess what string you are tuning, as you can't tell it. That's bad, I just got my guitar and the strings are way out of tune, (of course). This POS couldn't guess right. I worked with it a bit and got to recognize the A string, but it gives you different readings depending on how hard you pluck the string. I made my best guess and then tried to tune the E string, (low one), the A and E strings were not in tune to each, not even close. Completely worthless.
