Product Description

High accuracy and superb functionality have made Korg tuners the worldwide favorite. And now, the new GA-30 joins the best-selling GA Series of tuners. With even more features, like a pitch reference tone and quinta-flat tuning, the GA-30 tuner packs basic functionality and convenient tuning functions into ultra-compact bodies.

Features:

- Ultra-compact design
- High-precision LCD needle-type meter for stable tuning
- Quinta Flat Tuning mode lets you tune 1-5 semitones flat
- Supports 7-string guitar tunings
- Sound Out can produce a reference tone from the internal speaker
- Auto Power Off function conserves battery life
- Approximately 100 hours of continuous use

An Easy-to-Use Dedicated Guitar and Bass Tuner

This dedicated guitar/bass tuner lets you select either Guitar mode or Bass mode for truly easy operation with automatically detected pitch. The wide detection range supports 7-string guitar (7B through 1E) in Guitar mode, and 6-string bass (Low-B, Hi-C) in Bass mode. A high-sensitivity mic is built-in, allowing easy and accurate tuning of acoustic guitars.

Ultra-Compact Body with a "Tilt Slit"

Although the GA-30 is small, thin, and light, don't let its pocket-sized body fool you. The GA-30 can accurately tune any guitar or bass. From studio to stage, tuning is easy and convenient. The back of the unit includes a unique arc-shaped "tilt slit" that lets you insert a plastic card for use as a handy stand.

High-Precision LCD Meter

The meter section uses a LCD needle, combining the accuracy of an LCD with the easy visibility of a needle, and providing a stable display. Additional visual feedback is provided by LEDs that indicate pitch deviation.

Sound Out -- Internal Speaker Provides a Reference Pitch

In addition to visual tuning via meter, the GA-30 can play reference pitches from its internal speaker (Sound Out) for tuning by ear. Each press of the Sound switch will cycle the output sound through 7B->6E->5A->4D->3G->2B->1E in Guitar mode, or LB->4E->3A->2D->1G->HC in Bass mode.

Quinta Flat Tuning Mode -- A World-Wide First!

The GA-30's Quinta Flat Tuning mode supports the lowered tunings used in heavy metal styles to give more weight to the sound. Until now, dedicated guitar tuners have supported a maximum of only 4 semitones below standard pitch, but the GA-30 gives you 5 steps of flatted tuning, extending as far as 5 semitones below standard pitch, and supporting even super-long scale guitars that are 5 frets longer than conventional guitars.

Auto Power Off Function

If you leave the unit powered-on for 20 minutes without performing any operation, the Auto Power Off function will turn the power off automatically, avoiding unnecessary battery consumption.

Approximately 100 Hours of Continuous Use

Low-power consumption design allows an amazing 100 hours (approximate) of continuous battery life (A4 continuous input, Meter mode, zinc-carbon batteries).

* Even if the pitch is within the detection range, detection may not be possible for instrumental sounds that contain a large number of overtones or have a rapid decay.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (281 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "a lot of tuner for 15 bux"
Sound: It has sound off feature but I don't use it Feature: It tunes flat, which is always nice. Also it doesn't use the expensive 9v batteries, and AAA last for year because of the auto power down. Ease of Use: nice and simple, I dig the credit card slot in the back to make it stand upright. Quality: it has lived through a lot and still works great. Value: I don't think you can find anything better in this range. I mean, you can get a 70-100 boss or maybe 200 strobe tuner, but for under 40 bux this is the thing to get. It works well for electric and acoustic. Manufacturer Support: well, I guess the best kind of support is when the product works and you never have to call them. The Wow Factor: If I lost it I would buy another one, in fact maybe buy two, one for each guitar/gig bag. Overall: This is a great product, functional, simple and durable. I think I might get a strobe tuner at some point but for travel I can't think of anything better to put into my gig bag.
Style of Music: blues, rock
