The Korg Pitchjack Guitar/Bass Tuner is amazing. It is a super-accurate tuner that can be used with either a guitar or a bass. And it'll tune extended range basses too. I've used many different tuners for my basses (from floor pedals to clip-on headstock tuners) and they all have their cons. This tuner works. Period.

The only complaints I have about it are minor. First, when in use, it's hard to read the notes. Rather than have the notes illuminated while tuning, there are a series of lights next to the notes. It's hard for my old eyes to pick out which note is being displayed. Of course, knowing that for the bass the scale runs from High C to Low B helps you orient yourself while tuning.

And second, the tuner has to be plugged in to the input jack for it to work. This means you can't use it in a live situation. You can use it before you go on stage, but once out there and plugged in, you do not want to have to unplug, insert the tuner, and then re-plug in after tuning.

But as I said, these are minor complaints. For use at home or jamming with friends, this is a great tuner. It's well worth the price and it seems solid and well-built.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tuner.

Just do yourself a favor and order one.

Why couldnt Korg make this tuner recognize dropped D on a bass? I have owned many cheap tuners and not one of them has been as deaf as this one. I guess if you are using it for a guitar it might be acceptable... then why did Korg put a guitar/bass switch on the thing if it is useless for bass tuning? I know that I can fret the E to get a reference tuning, but that is not very accurate. Wish I hadnt fallen for the inovative design and listened to past reviews that clearly stated this problem. Waste of $$ for me.

Bass Players Must Have This...

By Ken B.

from Minnesota

See all my reviews

Comments about Korg PITCHJACK Guitar Tuner:

I play bass guitar in our church praise band, and I have fought with tuners of all sorts over the years. They never could consistently pick up the low notes - especially the low B and E. This one will not only pick them all the time, but without hesition. I am totally amazed! I've only had it for a couple weeks now, but thus far, it has been a real joy! For the money, how can you go wrong?

          This unit is so much nicer to use. No more plugging in a cable to a tuner and the guitar. I have enjoyed the ease of use. When I'm on stage I use my normal in line tuner. However, off stage here comes my PitchJack. Wish they would of had this years ago.

            Easily adjusts for drop tuning, switch for guitar or bass, plugs into the instrument, so it probably gets a better initial signal than from a cord

            One of the best tuners

            By Bodog

            from Charlotte, NC

            Comments about Korg PITCHJACK Guitar Tuner:

            I read the review from the guy who said he was a teacher and I almost decided not to buy this tuner because of his review. I'm glad I did'nt pay his review any attention. I don't know what kind of teacher he is but you would think he could figure out that you can plug the tuner in any line out on your amp, which virtually any new amp will have one (position the tuner where you can see it) and walk over to your amp when you need to make an adjustment. You don't have to unplug anything if u don't want to. For the price this is the best tuner I have found and I have used a lot of them!!!!!

            Comments about Korg PITCHJACK Guitar Tuner:

            No more chords to hassle with plugging in. No more tuners falling out of your lap because you move a smillionth of an inch while you are trying to tune your guitar. It is deadly accurate. I tested it with the best turners I had and it was dead on tune after I had tuned my guitar with them. The best part, it's always there for you and you don't even realize it's there. And at the price it is a dead give away! Ken Turfitt Ridgeland, MS.

            Comments about Korg PITCHJACK Guitar Tuner:

            It works just great! I can just plug it in and be done tuning very quickly. It is an accurate tuner that I use every time I play my bass.
            Due to the fact that it plugs directly into your guitar, it is not as handy as a tuning pedal, because you have to unplug your guitar from your amp before tuning or plug the tuner directly into one of the outputs on your amp.
            It is made out of plastic but is mostly solid.

            This is one of the best tuners I've used. Very accurate and they are cheap enough to buy a few to keep in various places.It's probably the smalest one available and can fit almost anywhere.

                      Tuning is necessary and usually a small pain to get to a VST or normal tuning box. But I can keep this with me in a pocket to grab and quickly tune during a session. The lights are bright and easy to see. I also like having the ability to flat tune.

                      I have needed a tuner since my last one died. I bought this at an extremely low price (thanks, Musicians Friend) and really like the quality. I am not a principle guitar player (keyboards, and yes, I own two Korgs), but there's a spot in our show where I play my guitar. Our lead guitarist has a rather nice/expensive pedal tuner, but it was giving him some problems so he borrowed my Pitchjack. He loves it! Lots of bang for the buck, and Musicians Friend's customer service. Perfect!

I bought a few of these to give to friends, and they love them...this one's a winner!

                            Got this on a SDofD. The Pitchback has been around for a long time. On the batch I got the input is too long, not something to ram into a PRS jack. But they used to be a decent quick tuner. The easy twist battery compartment had to be pried open to install the battery. Duct taped it back in. It's usable for practicing or tuning up one string to get close to a 440. If it wasn't so cheap I would have returned it. Made in China doesn't mean it's junk, just means you never know what you're going to get. It's back in the box and will probably be given away to someone who really needs a cheap tuner.

                              Have not used this for a main tuner, but it's a get little tuner for behind stage, on the bus, etc.
                              Oh yeah it works great on the low B of 5 string bass.

                                This is a great tuner. It's so small and handy and fast.
