Product Description

GA1 Guitar Tuner

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.

GA1 Guitar Tuner
Ultra-compact LCD Needle-style Dedicated Guitar and Bass Tuner

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.

Innovative Compact Design

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.

Sound Out -- Internal Speaker Provides a Reference Pitch

In addition to visual tuning via meter, the GA-1 Guitar Tuner/Bass Tuner can play reference pitches from its internal speaker (Sound Out) for tuning by ear. Each press of the Sound switch will cycle the output sound through 7B->6E->5A->4D->3G->2B->1E in the GA-1’s Guitar Tuner mode, or LB->4E->3A->2D->1G->HC in GA-1’s Bass Tuner mode.

Quinta Flat Tuning Mode -- A World-wide First!

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.

GA1 Guitar Tuner
Power Saver

If you leave the unit powered-on for 20 minutes without performing any operation, the Auto Power Off function will turn the power off automatically, avoiding unnecessary battery consumption. Low-power consumption design allows an amazing 100 hours (approximate) of continuous battery life (A4 continuous input, Meter mode, zinc-carbon batteries). Even if the pitch is within the detection range, detection may not be possible for instrumental sounds that contain a large number of overtones or have a rapid decay.


Product Highlights:
  • Ultra-compact design.
  • High-precision LCD needle-type meter for stable tuning.
  • Bass Mode: As a bass tuner, the GA-1 offer support for 5 and 6 string basses.
  • Guitar Mode: As a guitar tuner, the GA-1 offer support for 7 string guitars.
  • Quinta Flat Tuning mode lets you tune 1--5 semitones flat.
  • Sound Out can produce a reference tone from the internal speaker.
  • Auto Power Off function conserves battery life.

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.

Being this low priced I didnt think it would work as well but it is very nice. It has LED lights to go by as well as a meter to use. There is also a jack to plug in your guitar or bass. Easy and simple to use I highly recommended it.

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.

Great compact tuner. The Korg shipped with batteries and worked great right out of the box. Allows user to tune electric or acoustic guitars, by either 1/4" input cable or via the built in microphone. And since I own and play both, my purchase worked out great. It also has a built sound emulator, which allows you to tune by ear. So, forget buying an expensive tuner! This little sucker tunes perfect every time. Thanks Korg for designing such an inexpensive and user friendly product. And of course thanks to Amazon for selling. I love it and highly recommend it.

I have had this tuner for about a year now and it has tuned my guitar well. Only down side is that it doesnt give you the tuning for anything other than E,A,D,G,B,E. If you want to tune one of ur string to a C or an F it wont tell you. If you think you'll be playing songs that have C# tuning and so on. Dont buy this tuner go higher up the price bar for a better tuner that does all tuning's.

I've had this for about eight months now. It tunes accurately and leaves my guitar sounding well. If you don't feel like plugging it in with a 1/4" cable, you can hold the tuner's mic directly on your guitar's neck to get in tune decently (though I doubt this would work on a bass, as the tuner doesn't pick up the low E string very well when doing this).

It's light, compact and cheap. It also comes with batteries which is a plus. I don't see a need for a more expensive tuner, as this one is pretty precise.
