OVERVIEW

This Korg PC1 Pitchclip Clip-on Chromatic Tuner is a simple, convenient clip-on style chromatic tuner with a compact, lightweight, and discreet design. The clear, bright, and easy-to-read LED display reverses to assure easy viewing when mounted on either side of the headstock.

Boasting fast pitch detection and processing, accuracy with ±1 cent, and a detection range from A0 to C8, the Korg pitchclip outperforms many of the clip-on tuners on the market today. By locating the battery compartment in the clip itself, the display unit has become discreet, lightweight, and articulate. The pitchclip's high-contrast LED display can be inverted, assuring clear visibility when mounted in front of or behind the headstock on any instrument - classical guitar, electric bass, ukulele, etc. A single CR2032 Battery provides a generous 17 hours of use; the Auto Power-Off function preserves the battery life.

Used and loved by players around the world, Korg's clip-on tuners have earned a place as standard equipment for the modern guitarist. The compact, affordable, and easy-to-use pitchclip is the latest addition to the popular Korg clip-on family. Simple and user-friendly, the pitchclip offers highly accurate tuning, fast and ultra-responsive results, and excellent visibility. Pitchclip is the choice for every guitar or bass player who desires fast, accurate, and carefree tuning.

For every guitar or bass player who desires fast, accurate, and carefree tuning.

My new favorite tuner. Thanks Korg!
This tuner tuner is so easy use. Its meter can be reversed so you can be put on the back of a head stock.Super sleek looking too! The meter is really bright and easy to see.
Korg makes really good stuff and his thing looks like its made well too.
Really great price for what you get. I'll probably buy another for my electric.

The tuning itself is pretty decent but the build-quality could use some work. It feels sort of... disposable? I can't complain for the price I paid but to elaborate:
- The tuner doesn't move around or anything but the clip is kind of weak.
- The screen is hinged so you can flip it up but the hinge also feels kind of flimsy.
- The headstock on my acoustic guitar is asymmetrically and it's hard to find a good way to position the tuner. It would be nice if the screen swiveled so I could attach the tuner however I needed to, then swivel the screen so it faces how I want.

      It is next to impossible to get the tuner right on. It is either too high or too low. Tuna app on iphone works way better. Snark works way better.

          This little tuner is very inexpensive and easy to use. I have often wondered how to check for accuracy on these. I have several with 3 different instruments and have never checked them with each other. Simple to use.

              Comments about Korg PC1 Pitchclip Clip-on Chromatic Tuner:

              I have one of these. It has slow response, even with a fresh battery installed. It also gets confused on what key it is actually tuning to and is unstable. You can never really be sure if you are in tune or not with this. If you try to tune the "G" string, it will display "G" briefly and then think its tuning for "C."

              Do yourself a favor and get the Snark tuner. It has far better response, accuracy, stability, and has more out-of-tune intervals that don't trick you at all.

              Works great. Sensitive enough for my banjo and guitars. Does not have a flip around feature ao I can orient the clip around back that I would do for a Snark, but is more sturdy than a Snark.

                    This tuner comes at a reasonable price and it's compact. However,it doesn't seem to hone in on the pitch as well as traditional tuners or the clip-on tuners from Snark.

                      This tuner works well with acoustic, electric guitars and basses with one exception. The best tuning result is using your thumb or finger to tune and not a pick. The pick can generate too many overtones for the tuner. When you use the thumb to tune it is super accurate. After tuning you can use the pick again.
