Korg Releases the PitchCrow-G; Sleek Clip-on Tuner for Guitar and Bass
Impressive new features provide maximum functionality at a minimum size
Melville, NY - - June 25, 2015 - - Korg releases the new PitchCrow-G, a smaller, sleeker, and more accurate clip-on tuner that easily attaches to any headstock and is perfect for all skill levels. The guitar and bass modes, strong ball joint clip, full color LCD display and 24 hour battery life, provide for a streamlined tuning experience.
“The PitchCrow-G’ s ±1 cent precision mode is great for quick and smooth tuning and a ‘first string over-winding warning’ appears in the display to prevent string breakage caused by over-winding the thin first string,” stated Brian Piccolo Brand Manager for Korg Guitar Products. “The most notable change is in the size of the display. Without increasing the size of the meter’s display area, we’ve significantly narrowed the unused space around the edge, resulting in a more compact tuner overall and slimmed-down the thickness of the body. The new clip uses a more efficient and simplistic design, resulting in improved strength and reliability, uncompromised holding power on any type of headstock, and maximum flexibility due to the its unique ball joint,” added Piccolo.
For fine tuning in the studio or in a performance setting, the PitchCrow-G provides tuning accuracy of up to ±0.1 cents, eliminating even the slightest pitch discrepancy. In addition to the conventional chromatic mode, there is also a dedicated guitar mode and bass mode. In each mode, the string number is shown beside the note name, allowing even the beginner to tune with ease.
The lighter and stronger build allow the PitchCrow-G to deliver a more advanced tuning experience for all guitarists and bassists. For more information, visit www.korg.com.
