I wanted a poly tuner for my acoustic gtr (with pickup) that could also work with my 5 string bass. This one does not measure up however. With my gtr, it does not go into poly tune mode. I am forced to tune 1 string at a time. With the bass, it is difficult to keep it out of poly tune mode. It works OK if you use 12th fret harmonics to tune but it does a poor job picking up the low B string.

Unfortunatley, returning it means I pay shipping both ways!

      Love this tuner - the strobe function is awesome and after each string is done - strumming the whole thing you can see if they're at centerline.

      I never had a tuner before that could check all strings at once.

      Loving it.

        Comments about Korg Pitchblack Poly Pedal Tuner:

        I've been in the market for a new pedal tuner for a while, but i have a problem with the big money some companies are asking for them. My old ibanez TU-20 was good, but just had too big a footprint on my board, and i wanted to try something polyphonic. Got this when it was the stupid deal for cheap. Ive only used it at a few rehearsals so far, but its been good. No alteration in tone. i run it second in my chain after my wah, powered by a pedal power 2. the polyphonic feature is great for a quick check of all strings. then if you notice 1 string out of tune, play that single string and it zeros in on that string and you can fine tune from there. its super lightweight, to the point that I wonder about its durability, but i havent owned it long enough to see if thats an issue or not yet.

          I enjoyed it for the summer. First s hiss would form whether the tuner registered a note. Even from the tuner out on my amp. Then the button became non responsive. When we unplugged it, we had an audible change in the tone. This blows cause now I'm hesitant to buy korg again.

              It is pretty cool to tune all strings at once, but the precision is not the same as the boss tu-3. Comparing the price its a great deal.

                  I was eager to try this product and when I saw it under the "Stupid Deal of the Day" I had to take a chance. I have not been disappointed. Korg makes very nice products and this pedal is sturdy and compact.

                  I have tried polytuners before, but I play both a Martin acoustic and a Warwick bass; no polytuner has been able to properly tune my 5-string bass. Until this one. Very satisfied!

                    This thing is awesome. Talk about saving time on stage. Haven't used it to tune chords yet, but it works great for my electric upright.

                        All I can say is WOW! Too cool for the price I paid. Instant and accurate tuning. Strum it, tweak it, right back to playing. No more playing one note at a time to tune. Strum the strings open and instantly see what's out of tune and how much. Very awesom

                          While it may not be bright enough for direct sun, it worked well enough at my last outdoor gig. The display is large enough to easily read too.
