I’ve been using the Boss TU-2 tuner for years, and I’ve talked about this pedal many times, but I’ve been seeing a lot of people using the Korg PitchBlack tuner, so I wanted to take a closer look. I’ve always been surprised why there aren’t a lot of tuner pedals out there, but they are definitely a must have. I’ve messed with the racks and tuners running in loops, and these just don’t work or last like a pedal tuner on the floor, for me any way.
Here is the official pedal description:
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 Pitch Black 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.
I also found probably one of the most entertaining demos on YouTube by StopAndSearch. I actually watched this twice before writing this post.. this guy cracks me up.
