    Comments about Korg Pitchblack PRO Rackmount Tuner:

    For the money, its'a good tuner, very precise and fast. BUT, as a guitar player, I have to put it in front of my preamp (VooduValve) to use the feature of silent tuning. In that position, it changes slightly the tone of my guitar, not bad but different, but it hisses like Godzilla, using high gain (I play metal, what can I do...). I compared its "buffered" bypass with the one of a Corona chorus, and the noise was a lot lower. Also built a simple j-fet buffer myself, and the noise was almost zero. I can only say that the circuitry Korg used in its buffer is lame, to say the least. So beware guitar players, test the thing so you won't be disappointed like me. If you're a bass player, however, everything's gonna be all right.

      Comments about Korg Pitchblack PRO Rackmount Tuner:

      This tuner seems to work well, but is cheaply made. All plastic. The rack ears are thin, plastic snap-in parts. The input jacks are plastic. It weighs only a few ounces. I don't expect it to last very long. The only real reason to buy this is if you absolutely need a rack-mounted tuner and cannot afford the Peterson.

            Comments about Korg Pitchblack PRO Rackmount Tuner:

            I recently decided to move away from multi-fx processors (G-System) and as a result I became in need of a stand-alone tuner. And due to the way I prefer to have my pedalboard configured, I decided to go with a rackmounted tuner as opposed to a pedal. Shopping around, I noticed there aren't a whole lotta rackmount choices... this Korg tuner is IMO the best bang for buck.

            My amp is rackmounted, and atm I have the amp's line-out connected to the Korg's rear input jack (Input #2, which is designed for a line level signal)... and it works perfectly. Nice and tidy too, with just a 12" patch cable, and the tuner is not in my signal path.

            I also tested it in front of the amp, listening for any possible tone loss or coloration, and I did not perceive any difference.

            I find the tuner to be very accurate, and for live shows I use the basic mode 1 (partly because I don't want a crazy strobe light show coming from my gear haha) but for use at home if I'm setting intonation or whatnot I'll use the strobe modes #2 or #3 for a higher level of accuracy. But mode #1 is PLENTY accurate enough for live work.

            I've seen some complaints online about the build quality (it's all plastic) but this is a non-issue for me. IMO it does not need to be made of metal because it is protected by the rack enclosure. It's fine.

            Design-wise, if I had to think of a complaint, I think it would be nice to have an additional "Input #1" on the rear, which if used would deactivate the front input, this would make it more flexible with how you can configure your connections, but it's not a big deal.

            All in all, I am very pleased.

              Comments about Korg Pitchblack PRO Rackmount Tuner:

              I've been searching and searching trying to find this tuner available and everywhere you turn its on backorder or out of stock. I was lucky enough to find one on ebay last week and it came in 3 business days. I paid ten extra for shipping but hey it was worth it. So far this tuner fits perfectly for what it was meant to do. Ive read alot of people complain about it being plastic, but if you think about it, the purpose of a rack is to protect your gear. So it shouldnt matter if its placstic or not, as long as your not choke-slamming your rack, it'll hold up just fine. The display is super bright and visible. I like the display options, vary for individual's taste. It recognizes quick, is very accurate. I give it a 5 out of 5. The blue lights look great coming from the all black unit. No complaints on this. I run my guitar through input, then output, then to my amp. I have a footswitch hooked up to mute it for silent tuning. Functions perfect, no loss in tone or anything. Don't listen to the elitests that call themselves tone purists. Just give it a try and find out what you lik efor yourself. Im very pleased with this product and I think you will be too if you can get your hands on one.
