Boasting fast pitch detection and processing, accuracy with ±1 cent, and a detection range from A0 to C8, the Korg Pitchclip outperforms many of the clip-on tuners on the market today. By locating the battery compartment in the clip itself, the display unit has become discreet, lightweight, and articulate. The Pitchclip's high-contrast LED display can be inverted, assuring clear visibility when mounted in front of or behind the headstock on any instrument - classical guitar, electric bass, ukulele, etc. A single CR2032 Battery provides a generous 17 hours of use; the Auto Power-Off function preserves the battery life.

Simple, convenient clip-on style tuner

The design goals for pitchclip were simple, convenient features and total ease of use. Clip the tuner to your headstock, flick on the power, and you’re ready to tune. As you play a string, the built-in piezo sensor will quickly sense the instrument’s vibrations and indicate the pitch in the meter.

Compact, lightweight and discreet design

The tuner and display portion of the pitchclip is extremely compact; the battery compartment has been integrated into the clip itself. The meter display uses a sleek design with no protrusions, which affords a discreet and unobtrusive addition to your instrument. Convenient and lightweight, the pitchclip can be slipped into your pocket or guitar case without adding bulk or taking up valuable space, so you can take it anywhere.

Highly accurate and ultra-responsive, offering a wide detection range

Boasting fast pitch detection and processing, accuracy with ±1 cent, and a detection range that covers from A0 to C8, the pitchclip outperforms many of the clip-on tuners on the market today. Combined with the affordable price and enhanced display, the pitchclip is remarkable value.

Clear, bright, and easy-to-read LED display

The pitchclip’s bright LED display ensures high contrast and a wide angle of visibility; the meter indication remains clear even in dimly lit locations. Adjustable through 120 degrees, the meter/display section can be raised to provide the player with good visibility while tuning in a natural position.

Display reverse mode assures easy viewing

This function conveniently and quickly reverses the meter display, switching top and bottom. This prevents the player from having to view the display information upside down; regardless of whether the tuner is attached to the front or the rear of the headstock. When powering on, simply hold down the power switch for an extended time to reverse the display. Now, the musician is free to choose the position that's most comfortable and convenient; this feature also makes the pitchclip a great choice for left-handed players as well.

Reliable, highly-stable clip design

A newly engineered type of rubber is used in the clip, allowing the reliable attachment to a variety of headstocks; ukulele, electric bass, classical guitar and so on. By relocating the battery compartment to the clip section, the meter display section has been made lighter and slimmer, lowering the overall center of gravity and creating a more secure mounting than ever before.

Auto Power-Off extends battery life

Using a widely-available lithium coin battery (CR2032) provides the pitchclip with a generous 17 hours of operation. The Auto Power-Off function automatically turns the pitchclip off when no sound has been detected for approximately ten minutes, avoiding unnecessary battery consumption.

Easy to Use and Carry Around


This is a simple and easy to use tuner, especially easy to use in loud environments. The clip on design makes it small enough so you can bring with you anywhere and just stick it in your case, but the ease of use makes it worth every penny. I use it all the time to tune violins and other stringed instruments in a loud environment, and it works perfect every time! This is a real, hands on product review by Sean at Sam Ash Indianapolis.

This is a great tuner a an awesome price! The pitchclip can attach to the headstock or to the tuning machine and hides behing the headstock. Hold down the power button to reverse the display for left handed players. The display is easy to read. The tuner is accurate and comes with a 3 year manufacturer's warranty. I recommend this to any string player. This is a real hands on review by Sammy @ Sam Ash Sarasota

Great Tuner! Works on all instruments!


I typically use it in my room to tune my different instruments. It works great with my acoustic, and also my Violin and Banjolele. Although I've noticed it doesn't like to work well with my electric guitar. Also, I had it attached to my Banjolele and my Banjolele slid off of my guitar case (from a leaning position) and landed on the tuner and the plastic part that holds it on the instrument broke. I don't know if that is common for this tuner, but it happened to me. Other than that, it is super easy to use, small and convenient, and works great.
