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.

Really cool looking tuner with big display that is easy to see across a stage. Has some major downsides though, one of whic is that its very cheap plastic. It kind of bows out slightly in the rack, and the rack ears are just snap on plastic tabs. Should hold up fine in a protected rack, but just doesn't have a real confidence inspiring build, if you know what I mean ?

Also the accuracy is just "okay", basically its like any old cheap pedalboard tuner, but in a rack. Fair price for the price I guess, but not the best tuner on the market.

Main issue for me though is the stupid power supply design. The plug in part of the adapter is about 2+ rack spaces tall. I have my Furman above my processor and had to move it to the top of the rack so I could have the power supply adapter positioned downward without hitting the gear below it, if that makes sense? Really dumb design for a rack item Korg!

They should of put a "line lump" in there at the very least, so then you'd have a normal plug, or maybe made it at a right angle. Either way, it would of worked better in a rack.

AC adapters are always a problem with rack power conditioners, but you'd think gear designed specifically for a rackmount would address this.
My L6 Relay for example sticks out sidways, so it easily goes into 1 rack space.

Finally, its really dumb you have to hit the power button to turn it on every time. All my other gear I leave "on" and with one switch on the Furman it boots up. This unit needs to have the power hit each and every time, even if you left it powered up when you turned off your main power supply.

Just all and all falls a bit short of what I would expet in a pro rack tuner

        Love this! I have 2 of them inline, 1 for Bass and 1 for guitar. There is no bypass, so you MUST turn them on if you keep them inline is the only CON I can even think of, and that is pushing it..... Some of the best cash I have ever spent! Buy it, you wont regret it.

                  This is a very effective tuner, both from its ability to quickly and precisely tune a guitar and it's high visibility display. It also looks cool on stage or in the studio.
