Korg has been making professional-level rack-mounted tuners since the 1980s, and the Pitchblack Pro is just the latest iteration of their design. For a rack-mounted design, it’s very lightweight with a slim profile that means it’s not limited to use on a rack, making it a very versatile piece of professional equipment.

The display of this tuner uses a 3D lighted meter. Along with giving you easy to read and accurate information about your pitch, it’s pretty cool to look at, too, with an overall sleek and beautiful design. The included rack mounting brackets are very convenient, though they’re made of plastic so you’ll have to be a bit more careful with them than you would be with metal hardware.

But they don't stop there.

In terms of features, it gives you everything you’ll need from a professional tuner, including both strobe and chromatic operation and a frequency range of E0 to C8. It’s on par in terms of accuracy and speed with the Pitchblack pedal tuner, making it another excellent contender in that price range.

Features:

  • Cable checker
  • 3D visual tuner
  • Regular, half strobe, and strobe display modes
