Korg shrinks its Pitchblack tuner

by • February 25, 2016 • No Comments

Over the last few years, Korg’s Pitchblack pedal tuner has created up a solid reputation for durability and accuracy. With a footprint not much bigger than an original iPhone, it is actually not precisely massive either. But with pedalboard space frequently at a premium, Korg has added the Pitchblack mini – a tiny stomp tuner with a sizeable, effortless to read display.

The Pitchblack mini measures only 1.77 x 3.66 x 1.73 in (45 x 93 x 44 mm), which is only a tad chunkier than one of the EL34M tubes in the old Marshall amp sitting in the office corner, and showcases slide-out stabilizers to assist prevent the unit turning over when placed on the floor. And at only 4.5 oz (129 g), it won’t weigh your gig bag down.

A seven-segment color LED display dominates much of the upper face of the mini, with the player being offered a choice of three meter display modes. There’s regular for a swift tune-up. When precision is important, the strobe mode offers ±0.1 cent accuracy, while the way and speed of meter movement indicate pitch alter in half-strobe mode. The mini has a detection range of E0 (20.6 Hz) to C8 (4,186 Hz) and in addition caters for pitch calibration adonlyment.

It can be powered by two 3 V CR2032 lithium battery for up to 3 hours of continuous use or connected to a wall outlet via an optional 9 V DC adapter. Okay bypass switching means which the tuner can allow the signal to pass through uncolored.

The Pitchblack mini can be on the market of upcoming month for US$69.99. For players looking for a capable clip-on tuner, we heartily recommend TC Electronic’s PolyTune Clip.
