OVERVIEW

A guitar tuner you can depend on to stay in perfect pitch.

Providing the high precision and sensitivity that you expect from Korg, the Pitchhawk-U Ukeulele Clip-On Tuner features a new type of clip that offers a firmer grip and greater durability. It also has an adjustable arm and ball joint that provides flexibility and compact storage, plus a new type of display that's designed for high visibility and operability, a function that warns against over-winding the first string, and a selection of versatile tuning modes.

During the 38 years since developing the world's first needle-type meter tuner, Korg continues to pioneer tuner technology, applying their expertise in new ways to deliver value to the player. This spirit continued on with the first clip-type tuner, the AW-1 (2004), followed by its successor the AW-2 (2009), and now the AW-3G "PitchHawk".

Modes: Guitar, Bass, Chromatic - which allows you to use alternate tunings, not just EADGBE.
Pitch Calibration: 436 - 446 Hz
Fret Setting: Calibrates to selected fret so you can use it with capo on the neck up to 7th fret. ALSO works for drop tunings up to 5 "frets" lower.
You do need to read the instructions on this one. If you don't realize you're set up for second fret capo you can spend a lot of time being really confused. This is a feature-rich tuner, but very well designed, so once you understand it it's very easy to access all of its flexibility.
It can hide behind the headstock very nicely. It's quite small, and not all that bright, which concerned me at first, with my 62 y.o. eyes. But it is bright enough, and I like that there's no E.T. green glow to distract from the visual of an otherwise gorgeous guitar.
This is a great tuner. Get it!

Since this is priced beyond the range of a "economy tuner" I feel like I should expect more from it,and you do get some good features; it clearly tunes to sharps and flats/it seems rugged enough(almost heavy)/it is very accurate.Now the bad;It sucks batteries dead REAL fast(so you can't just leave it on for very long)/It takes a couple of seconds to "recognize" the note your playing/It is IMPOSSIBLE to see this tuner at AT ALL in daylight/it's kind of bulky IMO.SOOOO...What you have is a tuner best suited for non/live playing and recording.If you play out alot you may want a more user friendly tuner.For this price I expected a "do it all" tuner,which this IS NOT.

      Comments about Korg Pitchhawk Clip-On Tuner:

      Son in law has the prior model and I really like it. So, as most might do, I chose the same brand, yet new and improved model. Well, I think the prior model (amber colored / lit face) is easier to "see" when using. It also seems the older model might be a bit "faster". This new one will be fine. Just thought I'd throw this out there.

          I was looking at Seiko tuners until I saw an older Korg tuner out perform a higher priced Peterson strobe tuner. The newer Pitch Hawk works like a charm. Turn on, tune, shut off. Strongly recommended. Priced right.

            I am very happy with this tuner. The screen is bright and easy to read in the dark. You can use it either as a chromatic tuner, or you can use the dedicated modes for guitar or bass tuning. I have used this tuner with an electric guitar and an acoustic guitar, and in both cases it worked great. I have not tried it with a bass.

            Wanted a clip on tuner I could use on acoustic guitar, and electric bass and guitar. Has a bass or guitar selector that lets me tune low B on the bass as well as guitar. Easy to use and accurate. The rest of the band always wants to borrow it. I love it. The Boss TU12 is now retired.

                      I've relied on AW-2s for several years now. They are nicely sensative, but tend to be fragile. The pitchhawk seems sturdier and the control buttons on the front are easier to access.

                          i bought this tuner for traveling and found outside events it was hard to see the screen. in most cases, i couldn't see it at all and that was in the shade. the indicator floated around not knowing if the guitar was in tune, until played. i use a korg " tone works " effect peddle that has a tuner. comparing the two in tuning, at the same time, both read different. i trust the korg " tone works " more.

                          I bought this tuner after checking out several. I am satisfied with it and glad I bought it as it does what I need it to do and at a reasonable price. The clip grips tightly to my strat and its easy to use. The only thing I wish was different is that the screen was bigger.

                          never seems to stop 'dead on'. and different color 'dead on' light would be a nice touch. the buttons seem big enough, if you're a three year old.

                            I like this tuner cause during practice I dont have to fumble around for a pedal tuner cause I dont use effects. The price is great ,and it knows if your tuning a bass or a guitar.

                              tHE UNIT WORKS VERY WELL. The only thing I have found is when others are playing "LIVE" it is hard to get an accurate reading, but since this is my first clip on that may be with all picking up the vibration from other instruments. But when using by myself it is accurate and easy to use, Actually very nice and easy to slip into your pocket for convenient access. It also has many tuning modes which is perfect for me as I sometimes play a half step flat. vERY NICE and the price is right.

                                First I was skeptical but after using this tuner I like it. Be careful with it and it should last. Don't.be a gorilla. Great screen view in various light conditions.
