Korg announces a new addition to its family of award winning tuners: the GT-120 Guitar/Bass Chromatic Tuner. Its dual display features a comprehensive backlit LCD screen and a highly accurate (±1 cent) needle-type meter, plus two additional sharp/flat LED indicators. The smooth action VU-style meter and LEDs facilitate quick, accurate tuning, while the LCD displays the calibration setting, flat mode, note name and battery level.
In addition to Auto and Manual modes, the GT-120 supports five additional six-string guitar tunings (open E, A, D, G and DADGAD) and is ideal for tuning seven-string guitars and six-string basses. It also offers a flat tuning mode that can detect dropped pitches up to four semi-tones below standard pitch.
A built-in microphone is provided for tuning acoustic guitars and acoustic basses. An onboard reference tone oscillator can produce audible pitches from C2 to C7 for tuning by ear (also perfect for vocalists). The GT-120 also offers adjustable calibration in the range of 438-445 Hz (1 Hz increments) and the ability to detect pitches from A0-C8.
The Korg GT-120 is housed in a sleek black aluminum body with 1/4" input and output jacks. The tuner can operate for over 100 hours on two AAA batteries or can be powered by an optional AC adapter. A soft case is also included.
The GT-120 Guitar/Bass Chromatic Tuner is currently available with a U.S. MSRP of $129.99.
