New Tuners From Korg

We welcome the imminent release of two new guitar tuners from Korg, the GA-1 Guitar/Bass Tuner and CA-1 Chromatic Tuner.

Here´s the full release:
For nearly a decade, the Korg GA-30 Guitar/Bass & CA-30 Chromatic tuners have stood among the top-selling tuners on the planet. Now meet the GA-1 & CA-1 ultra-compact LCD Needle-Style Chromatic & Dedicated Guitar and Bass Tuners, offering the same excellent features with a new, enhanced design - all at an even better price!

High accuracy and superb functionality have made Korg tuners the worldwide favourite. And now, the new GA-1/CA-1 replace the industry standard and best-selling GA-30/CA-30 tuners.
With great features like a pitch reference tone, quinta-flat tuning (GA-1) and marks for pure major thirds (CA-1), theses tuners pack basic functionality and convenient tuning functions into newly styled compact bodies.

GA-1: 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.

CA-1: Wide Range of Pitch Detection
This compact chromatic tuner supports a broad range of C1 (32.70 Hz)-C8 (4186.01 Hz), allowing speedy and high-precision tuning of wind, string, keyboard, and other instruments. This tuner is ideal for tuning even low-register notes containing numerous overtones that are often difficult to tune. A high-sensitivity mic is built-in, allowing easy and accurate tuning of acoustic instruments such as ukuleles. A separately sold CM-100 contact mic can also be used to send the vibrations directly to the tuner for even more accurate tuning.

Although the GA-1 and CA-1 are small, thin, and light, don´t let the pocket-sized body fool you. Both can accurately tune a wide range of instruments. 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.

At this price, you can easily afford more than one!

Prices are £11.49 for the GA-1 and £13.79 for the CA-1
