        A great practice tool!

        Offers both tuner and metronome functions simultaneously or independently. Its large LCD-type needle delivers both the accuracy of an LCD and the excellent visibility of a needle indicator. It also has LED indicators that show pitch deviation or blink to indicate the tempo, making the TM-40 a highly visual tool. Provides quick and accurate coverage of a wide spectrum of notes and pitches for wind, string, keyboard, and most other instruments

        Excellent Functionality and a Wide Detection Range

        With a detection range of C1 (32.70Hz) - C8 (4186.01Hz), the TM-40 provides quick and accurate coverage of a wide spectrum of notes and pitches for wind, string, keyboard, and most other instruments. Even low-pitched instruments with complex overtone structures are detected with the precision you expect from Korg. A built-in high-sensitivity mic allows acoustic instruments such as guitar and ukulele to be tuned easily and accurately.

        Sound Out!

        In addition to the visual tuning guide provided by the meter, you can use the Korg TM-40's built-in speaker to produce a tuning reference pitch (Sound Out). This is convenient for tuning by ear and is also useful for ear training. By pressing the Sound switch, you can select the reference pitch from A5 to B4 (usually used as the tuning standard for wind instruments). And by holding down the Sound switch, you can select a mode in which you step through chromatic pitches from C4 to C5 (one octave).

        Adjustable Calibration

        The TM-40's Calibration setting is adjustable in a range of 410-480Hz to accommodate a variety of tuning standards. The calibration can be adjusted in 1Hz steps, letting you accurately tune to any song or key. Memory backup is also provided so that the Calibration and Sound Out ("12 NOTES" or "ABb") settings are remembered even when the power is turned off.

        Pure Major Third and Minor Third Interval Markings

        When intervals of a third are played out of tune in the context of a brass band, orchestra, or other ensemble, it is particularly noticeable. But those intervals can be made to blend more pleasantly by slightly adjusting them (relative to the equal-tempered pitch) to a pure major or minor third. The Korg TM-40's meter scale provides markings to indicate pitches of a pure major and pure minor third relative to a selected pitch. By tuning your instrument so that the meter's indicator needle points to these markings, you can ensure beautiful harmonies when playing in an ensemble. This capability is very useful not only for wind instruments but also for vocal or a cappella practice.

        The appropriate note to adjust when tuning to a pure major/minor third will depend on the music you are playing.

        Metronome Section

        The metronome section of the Korg TM-40 offers convenient functions for practicing a variety of music.
        Beat mode—choose from preset patterns. Beat mode lets you choose a preset tempo and time signature, and Tap mode lets you specify your own tempo. The compact TM-40's contains a large speaker that produces a clear and distinct metronome sound.

        13 rhythm variations for practicing a wide range of styles. The TM-40 contains 13 types of rhythms that cover 0—7 beats per measure as well as doublets, triplets, triplets with center beats omitted, quadruplets, and quadruplets with center beats omitted. Tempo is easily adjustable in a range of 40—208BPM.

        Sophisticated rhythms, such as triplets/quadruplets with center beats omitted, give you the flexibility to cover a wide range of styles from classical to rock and jazz. Since the volume is adjustable, the TM-40 can meet the needs of any situation, from private practice in a small room to sessions in a large studio.

        When using the Tuner and Metronome functions simultaneously, triplets, triplets with center beats omitted, quadruplets, and quadruplets with center beats omitted are not available.

        Tempo Adjustment Options

        When you adjust the tempo setting, you can choose that the tempo value will increment or decrement either in "full-step" mode (steps of a single unit) or "pendulum-step" mode (steps of several units as on a mechanical metronome). Choose the mode that you prefer.

        Set the Tempo with the Tap Function

        The TM-40's Tap Tempo function lets you detect and set the desired tempo simply by pressing the Metronome mode START/STOP button at the desired timing in a range of 40—208 bpm. This makes it easy when practicing to a song that you don't know the tempo of, such as a recording on CD.

        Memory Backup

        With the Memory Backup feature, the Korg TM-40 remembers your Tempo, Beat, Calibration, and Reference Pitch settings even when powered-off.

        Auto Power Off

        After 20 minutes of no use, the Korg TM-40 Tuner Metronome will automatically turn off to extend battery life.


        This feature-laden tool will quickly become your constant practice companion! Order today.

        I had owned a simple metronome when I was younger, and had never owned a tuner before I bought this. When I got it, it was basically out of the box and into my playing! Its definetly one of the easiest electronics I've ever used, and all the features make sense. The tuning capability is amazing, and can detect very quiet playing when using its built in mic. The ability to plug in 1/4 input is added goodness, and it obviously works eve better. The tuner and metronome can be turned on individually, or simultaneously, which is ever useful for extreme technique practice. The Metronome: a fantastic tap tempo feature detects from 40 bpm to 208bpm. The subdivisions (sounded by a distinguashably higher pitch "beep") range from constant, to all the usual simple divisions, plus 3 or 4 swing beats. Super Useful! Been using it for almost 5 months steady with all types of instument (guitars, bass, woodwinds, keyboards, even drums) and the same 2 AAA batteries are still inside, so it certainly holds its own. When listening to the metronome with headphones, the clicktrack is mono. Just saying.

        I find myself showing this thing off to other musicians. This is the one.
        The price is Outstanding considering what it does. The mic and input allow for versatility. The range will pick up a Tuba to a flute (the highest on the market), and will actually play a one octave chromatic scale starting from C for ear training. It allows for calibration by hz. This is really everything a musician could want in something that small; the tuner and metronome can be turned on seperatly or used in unison. metronome is on the right side, tuner on the left. the metronome It is fantastic and easy to use; it has all sorts of different beats, e.g. quarter, eighth, sixteenth, triplets, 4/4, 5/4, the list goes on. It even has volume control and a headphone jack. The stand in the back comes in handy. Takes 2 AAs sparingly. Very easy to use.
        Its not going to break. I have paid more for other tuners that end up breaking after a few uses. This is a breath of fresh air. I have onlyy had it for a few months but there have been no problems. I changed the batteries once because i left the tuner on overnight.
        This one does everything, and for the price, you can't refuse it.

          I have always relied on others' metronome tuners in band practice, but when I practiced alone, I really needed one for myself. So. Why not this Korg? Affordable and very stylish! Yay!

          KORG TM-40 Digital Tuner Metronome

          By Frank Mutolo

          from New York

          Comments about Korg TM-40 Digital Tuner Metronome:

          Overall I would say this is a must have. Practicing with a metronome will improve your playing 100% and having a built in accurate tuner is like frosting on the cake.
          I bought this Tuner/Metronome on sale at Musicians Friend and am very satisied with the unit. It has a lot of features in a well designed and well made small portable unit. The metronome is the main reason I bought this and I am very happy with its eas of use and performance. The tuner works well, although, I must admit it is not as nice as my KORG CA-1. This tuner seems very touchy in that it seems to pickup harmonics and ambiant noise as well as the string you are trying to tune so the needle jumps around. This more evident with G and B strings. Anither nice feature is the ability to hear various tones wihich makes rough tuning much easier. The unit does have a built-in plastic piece that folds out the stand the tuner at a good angle on the table. Overall a really nice unit that I would easily recommend.
          At the sale price at Musicians Friend this is one of the best values ever.

          Terrific Device!

          By Dean Rohleder

          from Kansas

          Comments about Korg TM-40 Digital Tuner Metronome:

          I highly recomend it! Can even check the tuning on my old Kimbal piano with ease.
          Works great! Very sensitive, can tune accoustic guitar clear across a room. Can even pickup an electric without an amp! Easy to read meter & the LED lights are great for a dark room.

          Metronome is very cusomizable & a real plus for a beginner.
          Well built and smaller than it looks in the photos. Was worried that it wouldn't fit in a guitar case but that wasn't a problem. Size is just right & the silver color makes the button labels easy to read in a dim room.
          Can't beat the price.

          TM-40 Great Tuner/Metronome

          By Brian Thornton

          from Undisclosed

          Comments about Korg TM-40 Digital Tuner Metronome:

          Great product! I hook it into a mini stereo to amplify the metronome but it probably isn't necessary with just an acoustic guitar.
          This was a great purchase. Everything works great! The only thing I would change is make the metronome a little louder but that probably isn't practical in a small package.

          The TM-40 is workhorse

          By Amos

          Comments about Korg TM-40 Digital Tuner Metronome:

          I've had this metronome/tuner for 4 years with no problems, glitches, or issues while dropping it, leaving it in the car on extreme weathers. This little handy device is a great practice tool for ear-training, note-reading, and speed. The metronome speeds may be not as much as you would hope (increments of 4) But you can actually change your speed practice to accomodate 1 increments in speed, just be creative!
          Metronome PLUS tuner in a small pocket-package. What more could you want?
          Good price now than when it came out.

          I've used a Korg GT3 on my guitars and bass for at least 15 years and it is still operating fine. I needed another one but wanted to add a metronome. This product is sweet. Bonus - tone generator so I can tune my drums..... Get one now!
