I bought two of these based upon good things I've heard. Right away I noticed with the first one that in single mode it always registered the notes as slightly flat but in poly mode it was accurate. After a few months I started to detect a hiss from the amp when I tried to tune up, next it wouldn't work with a battery until finally it doesn't work at all. I never used it much in the first place, I bought it to use on a smaller board I made up with pedals I had around the house. Finally I took it off the board and am now using the second one..
I'd never use this on a board I took out of the house, it seems to fragile. The poly thing was nice gimmick but if I have to guess which mode is more accurate I don't really need it.
So far the second one is holding up ok but it'll never be anything other than a spare for when I want to noodle around the house without setting my main board.

      Pretty Good

        Comments about Korg Pitchblack Poly Pedal Tuner:

        I bought this pedal on sale for i really good price so I'm not going to knock it too bad. First, the casing is really nice. It feels pretty heavy duty, like its not going to break anytime soon. So far it does what it is supposed to do pretty well. My only complaints and the reason I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because I feel the display could be brighter. Its fine for most uses but id imagine it would be hard to see if i ever did an outside gig. I use this pedal to tune my 5 string bass. It does great with the ADG strings but it sometimes has a hard time registering the E and almost always has a hard time registering the Low B string. It does get there eventually but wish it was faster. On sale it was a great buy but i would think twice about buying it at full price.

            The screen goes blank while tuning until it figures out if your tuning a single note or the entire thing. But it does work very well.

                Comments about Korg Pitchblack Poly Pedal Tuner:

                This tuner is really decent, and a steal at the price I got it for.
                It's replacing my Korg DT10 on my pedalboard to make more room for other pedals.
                So far, it's great.

                I could see that it might be a little brighter for day gigs, but to be honest most tuners aren't bright enough to be clear in sunlight.

                    It worked great for a few months, then the switch went wonky. Now it keeps switching itself out of tuning mode after a few seconds. And that's with sparing home use. I wouldn't want to trust this thing if I were a performing musician.

                      It's really nice to have a whole panorama of your guitar tuning. But I don't know why this toy suffers with active pickups. Besides, the DC output generates a terrible noise, as well as when the leds move to indicate pitch: you don't only see the transition of LED, you hear it through your amp!

                        It's a tuner pedal. It does what it should. I've used it a minimum of 3 days a week for 6 months or so for 3-4 hours at a time and I've encountered no issues. Bypass is clean and doesn't cause any unwanted feedback. Picked it up on deal of the day for a bargain. Poly mode makes it easy to check all your strings really quickly during a gig.
