The high precision and sensitivity that you expect from Korg
When it comes to clip-type tuners, you expect convenience to be emphasized more than accuracy. When it comes down to tuning easily and quickly when time is limited, like when you're on stage, high accuracy and sensitivity are mandatory. Since creating the WT-10 - the world's first needle-type meter tuner - in 1975, Korg has accumulated a long history in tuner development, making it uniquely able to deliver the high accuracy and sensitivity that’s provided by the PitchHawk. As you can see from the immediate response of the meter when you play a string, the wide range of detection from low to high notes, and the piezo pickup that accurately detects only your instrument from among the band, it’s apparent that Korg has not made any compromises.

New type of clip for improved gripping power
The clip has been designed for extremely efficient contact and strong gripping power, with a variable-angle rubber cushion that's now made in one single piece. It firmly grasps various sizes to accommodate the headstock of your guitar, bass or ukulele. Even if you move around actively while performing, there's no danger that vibration or weight will cause the tuner to shift. Rubber has also been added to the handgrip on the back of the clip, making it easier to grasp.

Freely adjustable angle with the movable arm and ball joint
The double mechanism of a movable arm and ball joint simultaneously provide both durability and a free range of angle settings. The movable arm can be dynamically positioned on either side of the clip, and the ball joint that connects the display allows its angle to be precisely adjusted up, down, left, or right. Players have the flexibility to position the tuner wherever they need, and the confidence that it will stay in that position.

New display provides high visibility
The new display, which features a new LCD meter with a high-brightness white backlight, dramatically improves visibility. The high contrast allows text and the meter display to be clearly distinguished, and the wide viewing angle means that it's easy to see from any position, ensuring smooth tuning in any environment; even on a dimly lit stage.

Durability that will stand of the test of time
Because a tuner is something that you use whenever you perform, durability is essential. The PitchHawk features a tough design that will stand up to the inevitable impacts of performing and transportation. The one-piece clip and the adjustable arm make the unit extremely durable. The battery compartment cover is easier to use than ever.

Compact design that can be folded flat for easy transportation
The PitchHawk can be folded flat for easy storage in a pocket of your gig bag. The rubber cushion of the clip is now a slim, straight design that's not at all bulky. Since the clip, the adjustable arm, and the back of the display all use the same curvature, the unit can be compactly folded without any wasted space.

Easy operation, with buttons on the front
Even though it’s an advanced tuner, the PitchHawk features a simple layout, with four buttons located on the front. This intuitive design lets you tune quicker than ever. Since it's used most frequently, the power button has a protrusion that makes it easy to distinguish.

Specially made pick case is included (PitchHawk-G)
A specially made pick holder featuring the Korg logo is included along with the PitchHawk-G as a bonus. Along with the PitchHawk, you can take it with you as a companion for your performances.

Over-winding warning for the first string, ideal for the beginner (PitchHawk-G, when using guitar mode)
When in guitar mode, the PitchHawk-G helps prevent string breakage by showing a "First string over-winding indicator" on the display if it detects that the thin first string has been tightened excessively. This is especially useful for beginners who may not be familiar with the tuning procedure.

Calibration, auto power-off, and memory backup functions
A variety of functions are available to support your tuning endeavors: the calibration function allows a variety of concert tunings, the auto power-off function saves the battery if you forget to turn the unit off, and the memory backup function preserves your settings even when the power is off.

Comments about Korg AW-3G-BK PitchHawk-G Clip-on Tuner, Black:

I have gone through many tuners, and have given away tuners that cost way more than this one, why? This one really works.
I have vintage guitars that are real fussy to tune, ESP my 12 string. Other tuners may be flashy, but I can with out a doubt get it right the first time every time! The 12 sounds like a million bucks when done right, like DODO when not.

This is the best one .
