KORG’s clip-on tuners can be easily attached to the headstock of your instrument for convenient and accurate tuning. The new PitchCrow-G is the latest addition to KORG’s lineup of clip-on tuners for guitar and bass.
The PitchCrow-G is the most compact of all fully-featured clip-on tuners. Its streamlined design includes everything you need to tune accurately, quickly and is approximately 20% smaller and lighter than previous KORG models. Included with the PitchCrow-G is a vivid full-color LCD and dedicated guitar/bass modes, as well as a new ultra-high precision fine tuning function that allows for accuracy as great at ±0.1 cents. Battery life is also approximately three times longer than previous units, allowing for approximately 24 hours of continuous operation. Forty years after it developed the world’s first needle-type meter tuner, KORG is proud to set the new standard for accuracy and reliability in clip-on tuners: the PitchCrow-G.
The PitchCrow-G provides maximum functionality at the minimum size. In keeping with KORG’s philosophy towards tuning products, a smaller, sleeker, and more accurate clip-on tuner was the ultimate goal when designing the PitchCrow-G. The most notable change is in the size of the display. Without increasing the size of the meter’s display area, we’ve significantly narrowed the unused space around the edge, resulting in a more compact tuner overall. We’ve also significantly slimmed-down the thickness of the body. Both of these factors also significantly reduced the weight of the PitchCrow-G.The clip section has also been improved. The new clip uses a more efficient and simplistic design, resulting in improved strength and reliability. It goes without saying that the new design provides uncompromised holding power on any type of headstock, and also retains maximum flexibility due to the its unique ball joint.
The color LCD display easily visible in a variety of settings. The high-brightness white backlight and color LCD meter provide both high contrast and a wide viewing angle, allowing you to check your tuning status with extreme clarity.
In addition to the conventional chromatic mode, there is also a dedicated guitar mode and bass mode. In each mode, the string number is shown beside the note name, allowing even the beginner to tune with ease. Flat and capo settings are also offered (*), allowing you to tune confidently in a variety of performance situations.
In guitar mode, a “first string over-winding warning” appears in the display to prevent string breakage caused by over-winding the thin first string. This is a great feature for the beginner who is still learning how to tune.
KORG tuners are known for their high accuracy and sensitivity, and the PitchCrow-G is no exception. When practicing at home or in a casual playing environment, the usual ±1 cent precision mode is available for quick and smooth tuning. However, if you’re in a professional recording studio or on stage, the fine tuning function provides ultra-precise tuning with ±0.1 cent accuracy and a strobe meter display that catches even the slightest pitch discrepancy, allowing your instrument to be perfectly in tune.
The PitchCrow-G is designed for ultra-low power consumption. By painstakingly redesigning the structure for greater efficiency, we have achieved a battery life that is approximately three times longer than previous tuners, allowing approximately 24 hours of operation. There’s also an auto power-off function that will turn the tuner off after it has not been used for a while. You won’t find yourself with a dead battery when you pick up your instrument and need to tune, the PitchCrow-G will always be ready.
