      Tune your guitar in style, with one of 3 limited edition colors.

      The KORG Pitchblack Chromatic Tuner is now available in various collectible colors, but only for a limited time. The Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner offers you high precision, advanced functionality, and sleek style to make it KORG's most advanced guitar/bass stompbox-style tuner yet. The Pitchblack tuner has a tough aluminum die-cast body that will endure hard use on the road or in the studio. The large LED meter and note name display with light-emitting surface is easy to read in any setting from daylight to stage light to no light. The extremely smooth eleven-segment LED meter allows accurate visual tuning from any angle. The Pitchblack has a red LED to indicate on/off status and a tuning range of E0 (20.60 Hz) to C8 (4,186 Hz) with adjustable calibration between 436-445Hz.

      Four display modes

      The Pitchblack's LED meter can be switched among four display modes including: Meter, Full Strobe, Half Strobe, and Mirror.
      Meter mode
      Similar to using a needle meter, tune your instrument so that the green LED in the center of the LED display lights and both tuning guide LED's are lit. The tuning LED's will be to the right of center if your instrument is sharp, and to the left of the center if your instrument is flat.

      Full Strobe mode
      Tune your instrument so that the LED meters stop streaming and both tuning guide LED's are lit. The LED meters will stream from left to right if your instrument is sharp and from right to left if your instrument is flat.

      Half Strobe mode

      Tune your instrument so that the LED meters stop streaming and only the green LED in the center is lit and both tuning guide LED's are lit. The LED meters will stream to the right of center if your instrument is sharp, and to the left of center if your instrument is flat. When the pitch is correct, only the center LED will be lit.

      Mirror mode

      Tune your instrument so that the two LEDs on the left and right sides of the center LED meet in the middle and both tuning guide LED's are lit. The pitch lit LEDs will spread farther apart the more your instrument is out of tune. The left tuning guide will light if your instrument is flat, and the right tuning guide will light if your instrument is sharp.

      100% True-bypass output keeps your tone intact
      The Pitchblack mutes the input signal for silent tuning, and when you're not tuning the input is passed directly to the output jack without being affected by any circuitry (True Bypass). So even if you connect the Pitchblack between several of your favorite pedals, the signal will pass without going through the internal buffer amp, ensuring that the sounds you've created using your effects will not be colored in any way. The Pitchblack is designed to coexist transparently with other effect pedals.

      A perfect fit in your pedal board plus the DC output powers other pedals
      The Pitchblack is designed to fit conveniently into your pedal board system. It provides a DC OUT jack that can supply power to other effect pedals when the optional AC adaptor is used. By connecting optional DC cables, you can supply up to 200 mA of power to multiple effect pedals, simplifying the power connections in your pedalboard.

        Buy this tuner. Don't look any further. Stomp on it, feel secure. It's not indestructable, but it's pretty close. I've done pretty much everything other than drive over mine. If you send me a new one, I'll try it though! Sounds fun.
        It's a tuner, it picks up my bass, electric, and acoustic with precision. Great illumination on the display.
        We are a gigging, drinking, and overall abusive band on equipement, we have replaced all other tuners throughout time and purchased these units. Pretty much a prerequisit to jammin with us. If you have tuning issues with this unit - check your instrument first. If you have power issues, check your breaker first. I can't break 'em and I break everything. Never had a single one fail.
        Only 2 things in life that make it worth living.... I know the guitars that tune good is one of 'em, the other is still up for debate. I can't stand to listen to a band that tunes once a set (or at least sound like it), this is a must have - value A+++

        I liked this pedal a lot when I first got it. I preferred its simplicity, button footswitch, appearance, and the fact that it's true bypass to the ubiquitous yet functional Boss tuner pedals. However, it ultimately proved unreliable in live situations. Too many times when trying to tune between songs I found myself looking down at an unresponsive display. After the third or fourth time I had enough and went back to using the Boss TU-2 I kept as a backup. I've since switched to a TC Electronic Polytune, which has worked well so far.

          This is a nice tuner. Different modes let you configure the best way for you to tune your instrument. Has built in muting when engaged. Overall build is very sturdy and looks like it can go the distance. Can power by battery or adapter. If you need a good, easy to read, tuner, this is it!

            Comments about Korg Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

            This is a great little tuner with true bypass, so it won't color your sound. Tunes perfectly and very easy to use right out of the box. The display can be seen from a distance, on a dark stage or in sunlight. It's slightly smaller than your typical pedal so the small footprint leaves plenty of room on the pedal board... I have been using the tuner for years. It's a great tuner at a great price. Definitely need to add this to your pedalboard.

            If lost, stolen, or damaged I would defintely replace it.

            This is a nice, simple, straight forward tuner. A couple of the other reviews state that the stomp switch does not click when pressed. I'm not sure what they are talking about. It may not be as strong as a click on other true bypass pedals, but it definitely does click.

                  I have tried many of the pedal tuner options out there, and I can say without a doubt, the Pitchblack can stand with any of them, and is better than most of them.

                  It tracks fast, and is accurate on all my basses (4, 5 & 6 strings).

                    I've had this tuner for over a year with no problems. It does it's job well and is easy to see. I mostly use it to tune my bass but it works well for my guitars also. I also use it to mute my signal as needed. It doesn't eat up batteries either. All in all it is just a good reliable tuner pedal. No complaints.

                        I haven't played much in 20 years, but I picked this up and a new Epiphone Limited Edition ES-335 PRO Electric Guitar for my kids and me to play Rocksmith2014. This is a very easy to use tuner. There may be some delay when going through the Rocksmith TS-usb to computer connection in the through mode, but I don't notice any going straight into my amp or pre.
