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.

Features

  • 100% True-bypass output keeps your tone intact
  • Choose from four types of display modes: Strobe, Half Strobe, Meter & Mirror
  • Compact pedal-sized guitar/bass tuner that fits in your pedal board

    Comments about Korg Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

    I have used it for 2 rehearsals and it is very quick and easy to use so far. I have marked mine with tape so I get the ins/outs correct. Once you have it set up right, it's easy to use and easy to see from the floor.

      Comments about Korg Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

      A really great tuner for your pedal board. It's quite, and the bypass is top-notch. Nice and easy to read, accurate and easy to use. You can set it to your preferred style of tuner (I'm partial to the standard "needle" style myself). I'd definitely buy it again.

      Comments about Korg Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

      Sadly one of my favorite pedals. Straight forward operation and an awesome display. I've had mine for about a year and have had no issues seems like it's built about as well as it could be. Tracking seems excellent on both guitar and bass and is quick. True bypass, if you need a buffer build one. All my tuners have been Korg or complete garbage. Well worth the price tag and you'll sound better in tune.

      Pitch Black Pedal Tuner

      By Ed Hardister

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Korg Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

      Very good tuner - true bypass - bright display. Very sturdy but not built as tough as the Boss tuners. It's smaller than the Boss tuners though.

      i love this thing.

      By Joe Miracle

      Comments about Korg Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

      Its a tuner, it does the job its suppose to do and it does it well. The display is large and bright. Also it seems to recognize the pitch very quickly. Ive owned and used some tuners that had a sort of delay in showing you what the pitch of the string was. This thing however goes straight to the note quickly. Great tuner, if its in your price range get it, you'll like it.

      Korg Pitchblack

      By A Lesser Paul

      from Rockford, IL

      Comments about Korg Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

      This tuner is great, being that it is accurate, has a bright display, and is a great alternative to a rack tuner. This unit sits on the floor at the front of the stage where it should be, not at the back of the stage off to the side with the rest of the rack equipment. The mute function is great also, and not to mention it looks great!

      Good Tuner

      By Jmac

      from Durango CO

      Comments about Korg Pitchblack Chromatic Pedal Tuner:

      I needed something better than the old Boss tuner I'd used for years, and my Korg rack tuner was excellent, just too bulky. This is really good pedal tuner, high quality and very accurate. Easy to put in the chain & forget until needed. Typical good Korg quality, it should last with some care.
