OVERVIEW

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

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.

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.

Comments about Korg PC1 Pitchclip Clip-on Chromatic Tuner:

Thought this item would be a little bigger when you take it out the box its a little thing but when its clipped onto the guitar to tune it works wonders... Had many tuners in 15 years of playing guitar but this little guy and for the price was a steal... Great job by Korg!
Does its job for tuning purposes
thought it would be a little bigger but good to keep in your pocket and travel
Great for its price!

    Comments about Korg PC1 Pitchclip Clip-on Chromatic Tuner:

    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.

      Comments about Korg PC1 Pitchclip Clip-on Chromatic Tuner:

      The bass player in my jazz ensemble recommended this tuner, and he was right. It's compact so it can stay on the top of my guitar without getting in the way, and it's accurate. The folding head makes is easy to pack in a case or gig bag. It's a reliable, affordable tuner that does the job. I actually bought three of them, one for each guitar case.

            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.

            Great little tool

            By Roger Bricco

            from Tennessee

            Comments about Korg PC1 Pitchclip Clip-on Chromatic Tuner:

            Very simple and convenient tuner to use.
            So far so good. I've only used it a couple of times but what a great little tool! I love how I don't have to unplug my guitar all of the time only to plug it into my tuner to check my tuning. I wasn't expecting it to be so tiny but it still works great, is easy to read and is always right there when I want to check my tuning. Where was this thing when I was a weekend warrior and playing all of the time.
            Everything works great on it! Even though it is small and seems delicate, it attaches to the guitar very well, is easy to use and read, is accurate and doesn't seem to mess with my guitar's finish.
            Probably the least amount of money I've ever spent on a tuner.

            Comments about Korg PC1 Pitchclip Clip-on Chromatic Tuner:

            Not much anything else to add. If there are any cons, I don't see them.
            Simple to operate. Turn it on...clip it on...tune!
            Clear display lights up and show you the tuning key and whether you are sharp or flat.
            Housing is a tad flimsy, but it's a budget item and it is small.
            I think it's an excellent value! It can safely be tucked away in the instruments case and is accurate.

              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 is a no frills tuner. Mounts to the front or back. It's tuning is very accurate. This tuner works on some guitars that my other, more expensive clip ons, will not pick up on. When mounted to the rear just hold the power button to invert the display. The display is very easy to read. Battery is included. Great job Korg!!!
                This is a tuner, that's all it does but does it very well. It is very small which is great. Mounts to the front or back or anywhere else you can clip it.
                It's plastic, like everything else is. Display is very easy to see.

                OK affordable tuner. You can attach this so the display is seen from the back of the headstock. In order to display the key correctly, so the text is facing up, just hold down the button every time you tune your guitar a little longer to do so.
                With some design enhances & a preference set up feature this tuner could be a 10.
