A really nice tuner
Korman 17.07.2020
In a world full of of poorly designed and built throwaway items, this Korg tuner seems as if it were designed by folks who wanted to make something intelligent and functional instead of flashy. It is well made with a nice LCD screen so the 2 AAA batteries lasts a long time. Aside from that it just works well. In addition it is not expensive. I would also check out the option of its bigger brother, the 60, which has a screen light and a metronome for a about 10 Euros more but on the downside has a less legible screen. I am very satisfied with the purchase.

It does what it is supposed to do
Ttn1 09.04.2023
Easy and simple tuner, I used it to tune my monophonic analogue synth, great for live as I don't have to listen to it while tuning, the Red/Green led is a great and simple guide. Batteries
It does what is supposed to do and does it quickly without affecting your performance.

Good but not better than an app
mlsomers 14.04.2023
Got this for tuning guitar, thinking it would be less subject to surrounding noise than when using an app on a mobile phone. Unfortunately that is only the case when connecting an external clip-on mic to the instrument which I did for a while. I have since replaced it with a Rimpitch (also from Korg) which is a far better solution for guitar in my opinion. At least it can handle a fall onto a tiled floor from balancing on a leg better than most phones can, so from that perspective it may be a great investment.

Not Quite What I Was Hoping For
Flyin' Ryan 16.02.2024
Overall, it's fine and does the job. But, I was hoping for a bit more immediate response and accuracy. This doesn't seem any better than the Korg tuner I bought 20 years ago. Or, maybe that's a testament to their quality and consistency?

My biggest frustration is that the tuner has turned on inadvertently, 3 or 4 times now. I didn't bump or touch it, yet it somehow turned on and stayed on for who knows how long before I saw the lights. Maybe something bumped the table near the tuner, but I know that nothing had come into contact with the power button.

I'd probably still purchase this over others, based on the positive aspects.
