The new Korg Pitchblack Digital Chromatic Foot Pedal Tuner is an absolutely fantastic universal, easy-to-use tuner with a large LED display that is a must-have item for the gigging musician.

High precision, advanced functionality and a sleek style make this new accurate pedal tuner from Korg our most advanced yet.
The pitchblack is the same size as a compact effects unit and features a tough aluminum die cast body that will endure hard use on the road or in the studio.
While small in size, the PB01 boasts a large, easy to read LED meter with a light-emitting surface for excellent visibility in any setting from daylight, to stage light, to no light, as well as an extremely smooth eleven-segment LED meter that allows accurate visual tuning from any angle.

With a red LED that indicates the tuner's on/off status, a large note name display, and a tuning guide that indicates whether your instrument is sharp or flat, you'll always be able to tune quickly and accurately in any situation.

The pitchblack provides a tuning range of E0 (20.60 Hz) to C8 (4,186 Hz), and adjustable calibration between 436--445 Hz.


Four display modes
The pitchblack's LED meter can be switched between four display modes including: Meter, Full Strobe, Half Strobe, and Mirror. All four are described in further detail below:

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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 pedal board.

Features and Specifications:
  • 100% True Bypass output keeps your tone intact
  • Choose from four types of display modes: Full Strobe, Half Strobe, Meter & Mirror
  • Compact pedal sized guitar/bass tuner that fits i

    Having used many tuners over the years from in-line tuners to, more recently clip-on headstock tuners, I was getting fed up with the problems these invariably cause both are fine in the home, but as soon as soon as you take them on stage they become a nightmare. In-line tuners are cumbersome and awkward to use, especially in low light situations, and headstock tuners are affected by ambient noise which sets off vibrations within the guitar which adversely affect accuracy. So, I decided to go with a pedal tuner instead. I tried a few before I finally bought the Korg,some cheaper, and some considerably more expensive. This is, without doubt the best of the bunch. It's just as accurate as tuners costing twice the price, and is a lot easier to read than most. I won't waste your time talking about budget tuners, let's just say they are a waste of money. I've bought a few products from Korg over the years and have always been impressed by the quality and performance of their gear. I would have no hesitation recommending this tuner to anyone.

    I have had a Boss TU-2 for many years but got increasingly frustrated at how difficult it is to tune accurately and quickly. The Korg tuner is so much easier to use with accurate tuning a breeze. Well built but large perspex cover over display looks like it might scratch is care not taken which is why it doesn't get 5 stars.
