Installs in your soundhole for easy-to-read, convenient tuning.
Since the KORG AW-1 appeared, clip-on tuners have been the standard for tuning an acoustic guitar. However, some guitarists may feel that a clip tuner attached to the headstock is too distant from the eye or that it's annoying to have a tuner attached to the headstock.
KORG has responded by releasing a revolutionary new tuner. The Rimpitch is a unique tuner that you use by attaching it to the soundhole of your acoustic guitar. It provides an incredibly convenient viewing angle since you can see the tuning meter within the natural angle of your sight. With a compact size, it's visually unobtrusive since it fits inside the guitar's soundhole and is easy to fit and remove.
To use the Rimpitch, you attach it to the lower side of the soundhole. This means that you'll be able to check the tuning meter at the closest possible distance within your natural angle of vision. Since it's attached in a position where only the performer can casually see it, it will be virtually unnoticed by the audience. This is the ideal tuner for people who don't want to appear to be using a tuner during a live performance.
The Rimpitch can be installed in round soundholes with a diameter of 100 mm±3 mm, allowing it to fit a wide range of acoustic guitars. There's a hook that keeps it from falling, and since the portion that touches the guitar is made of rubber, there's no danger that your valuable instrument will be scratched. You can then leave the Rimpitch attached when stowing your guitar in its case, making transportation and storage even more convenient.
High-brightness LEDs are used for the tuning meter and for the string name indicator, ensuring excellent visibility even on a dimly-lit stage.
