The Korg Pitchjack Guitar/Bass Tuner is amazing. It is a super-accurate tuner that can be used with either a guitar or a bass. And it'll tune extended range basses too. I've used many different tuners for my basses (from floor pedals to clip-on headstock tuners) and they all have their cons. This tuner works. Period.

The only complaints I have about it are minor. First, when in use, it's hard to read the notes. Rather than have the notes illuminated while tuning, there are a series of lights next to the notes. It's hard for my old eyes to pick out which note is being displayed. Of course, knowing that for the bass the scale runs from High C to Low B helps you orient yourself while tuning.

And second, the tuner has to be plugged in to the input jack for it to work. This means you can't use it in a live situation. You can use it before you go on stage, but once out there and plugged in, you do not want to have to unplug, insert the tuner, and then re-plug in after tuning.

But as I said, these are minor complaints. For use at home or jamming with friends, this is a great tuner. It's well worth the price and it seems solid and well-built.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tuner.

Just do yourself a favor and order one.

Why couldnt Korg make this tuner recognize dropped D on a bass? I have owned many cheap tuners and not one of them has been as deaf as this one. I guess if you are using it for a guitar it might be acceptable... then why did Korg put a guitar/bass switch on the thing if it is useless for bass tuning? I know that I can fret the E to get a reference tuning, but that is not very accurate. Wish I hadnt fallen for the inovative design and listened to past reviews that clearly stated this problem. Waste of $$ for me.

Bass Players Must Have This...

By Ken B.

See all my reviews

Comments about Korg PITCHJACK Guitar Tuner:

I play bass guitar in our church praise band, and I have fought with tuners of all sorts over the years. They never could consistently pick up the low notes - especially the low B and E. This one will not only pick them all the time, but without hesition. I am totally amazed! I've only had it for a couple weeks now, but thus far, it has been a real joy! For the money, how can you go wrong?

          This unit is so much nicer to use. No more plugging in a cable to a tuner and the guitar. I have enjoyed the ease of use. When I'm on stage I use my normal in line tuner. However, off stage here comes my PitchJack. Wish they would of had this years ago.

            Easily adjusts for drop tuning, switch for guitar or bass, plugs into the instrument, so it probably gets a better initial signal than from a cord

            One of the best tuners

            By Bodog

            from Charlotte, NC

            Comments about Korg PITCHJACK Guitar Tuner:

            I read the review from the guy who said he was a teacher and I almost decided not to buy this tuner because of his review. I'm glad I did'nt pay his review any attention. I don't know what kind of teacher he is but you would think he could figure out that you can plug the tuner in any line out on your amp, which virtually any new amp will have one (position the tuner where you can see it) and walk over to your amp when you need to make an adjustment. You don't have to unplug anything if u don't want to. For the price this is the best tuner I have found and I have used a lot of them!!!!!

            Comments about Korg PITCHJACK Guitar Tuner:

            No more chords to hassle with plugging in. No more tuners falling out of your lap because you move a smillionth of an inch while you are trying to tune your guitar. It is deadly accurate. I tested it with the best turners I had and it was dead on tune after I had tuned my guitar with them. The best part, it's always there for you and you don't even realize it's there. And at the price it is a dead give away! Ken Turfitt Ridgeland, MS.

            Comments about Korg PITCHJACK Guitar Tuner:

            It works just great! I can just plug it in and be done tuning very quickly. It is an accurate tuner that I use every time I play my bass.
            Due to the fact that it plugs directly into your guitar, it is not as handy as a tuning pedal, because you have to unplug your guitar from your amp before tuning or plug the tuner directly into one of the outputs on your amp.
            It is made out of plastic but is mostly solid.

            It's nice to not have to fumble with cables and stuff. Just plug into the guitar and pick the strings. Simple, lightweight, useful. I'll keep this thing with me all the time.BTW, for "Drop D", you can just fret an E.
