Product Description
Don't let the price fool you! The affordable GA-1 Guitar Tuner / Bass Tuner is an excellent choice for any guitarist or bass player. The handy Tilt-Slit design provides easy viewing; Auto Power Off preserves battery life. High accuracy and superb functionality have made Korg guitar and bass tuners the worldwide favorite. The GA-1 is the latest addition to our best-selling GA series of tuners. With even more features, like a pitch reference tone and quinta-flat tuning, the GA-1 Guitar Tuner packs basic functionality and convenient tuning functions into an ultra-compact body. This dedicated guitar and bass tuner lets you select either Guitar mode or Bass mode for truly easy operation with automatic pitch detection. The GA-1 Guitar Tuner mode supports 7-string guitars (7B through 1E). The GA-1 Bass Tuner mode support 6-string basses (Low-B, Hi-C). A high-sensitivity mic is built-in, allowing easy and accurate tuning of acoustic guitars. The GA-1'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 four semitones below standard pitch, but the GA-1 gives you five steps of flatted tuning, extending as far as five semitones below standard pitch, and supporting even super-long scale guitars that are five frets longer than conventional guitars.

    5Wonderful !!!
    By DJ
    I am new to playing the guitar, and became extremely frustrated with trying to tune my guitar by ear. It was impossible for me, and my guitar sounded horrible! Then, I got this electronic tuner, and my guitar sounded like an actual guitar. It is very, very easy to use. All you have to do is play each open string, and tune it by the guage on the tuner. I could not be happier with this small little investment. I would highly recommend it - especially for people who are apparently tone deaf.

    5A great product.
    By Photoguy
    Works very well, really precise and easy to use. Small enough that you can easily carry it with you in your pocket.
    Update Nov. 2016: Have been using it for about half a year now. This is a very reliable, handy tuner. Even though it is digital, it shows an analog needle-type meter that allows for very precise tuning. It shows, for instance, when a string is going a bit higher after having been plucked (often an indicator that you need a new string). I have also seen people using it for brass and woodwinds, and it works just as well. A great little inexpensive toy that every musician should carry around.

    5This Tuner Rocks!
    By Reverend Fuzzy
    I searched through a plethora of chromatic tuners, most of which were pricey at best.
    Then I found the Korg GA-1. It does everything one needs to tune an electric or acoustic guitar, or bass. Best part was, even with all the functions in place, the price was a LOT more reasonable than all the others I've seen. There is a 1/4" jack for direct connect, and an internal mic for acoustic mode. And to top it off, pressing the "sound" button generates tones, allowing the tuner to be used as a pitch pipe. I recommend this tuner highly.
