yoTrakkz's review "makes life easier"

The Korg DT-10 is a chromatic tuner designed for acoustic instruments that can simply clip onto your guitar or other stringed instrument.  It is really easy to use and it will pick up your signal accurately and allow you to tune your instrument perfectly and it will only take a matter of minuets.  Whether I'm using the Korg DT-10 for simply practicing or for recording and live shows, the Korg DT-10 works perfectly for instruments that don't have a pick up.  I usually prefer to mic up my acoustic instruments, so having the Korg DT-10 is vital for me to have around because I don't have any pick up to send the signal to a traditional tuner.  This is overall a real easy tuner to use and it only takes a short amount of time to tune your guitar or other instrument each time.  The price of the Korg DT-10 is really reasonable and I would say it is a must have for any person who plays an acoustic instrument but has no pick up.  Even though I only really use this tuner on acoustic guitar, I have also seen it used for mandolin and violin with good results and I'm under the impression that it will work fine with any acoustic stringed instrument. The clip for the Korg DT-10 is pretty sturdy and I've never had any problems clipping it on or with it breaking or anything like that.  While I would rather use another tuner like a Boss TU-2 that I could plug my instrument directly into for electric instruments, for strictly acoustic instruments the Korg DT-10 works best.  If you play a lot of acoustic guitar and don't have a pick up for it or would rather mic it up, the Korg DT-10 must be looked into as it will make your life easier! Love this tuner!

I had it twice, on two different pedal boards.

I tried out many other products: Boss, Arion, Korg and others
I like the reliable display and the latency time. It reacts slowly, which doesn't mean that it doesn't work well, but it doesn't recognize all harmonics which can appear by resonance, and this is a very good thing.
When you're on stage, nothing is more annoying than a tuner which continuously moves: you never know if you are in tune or not!

I would buy it again. I kept one of the two I had because I'm satisfied with it. I sold the second one because I didn't use it anymore.
Today, I would like to try out the TC tuner which seems to be really great. And we all know the quality of TC gear. However, the DT-10 is still a good product.
It's not too big (a bit larger than the Pitchblack or the TC). Mute function, battery or PSU (9 V DC) operation. Easily readable on stage, even with blinding lights.
Also available in rack version, if you have a guitar tech... but I just like the stomp box version.

This is a high quality tuner from Korg. It is a pedal tuner which makes it useful for live gigs. This tuner has a bright, clear display, easy to see in dark rooms. It's superbly accurate as well. It has a wide range, and can be adjusted via a button to drop the strings down several half steps for alternate tunings. It can be used with either a 9V battery or a 9V power supply. It has one 1/4" input and two outputs, one normal and one bypass. This gives you the option of muting all of your tuning excursions, or broadcasting them through the amp. I personally never use the bypass option, but it could be cool if you're going direct as well as through an amp.
While this amp has certain cosmetic advantages, I'm not sure I would put this over the Boss tuners. The only reason being that those pedals have the ability to provide a daisy chain power supply to other pedals. This pedal does not have that option. While it doesn't seem like a big deal, it works very well in my experience. Granted, I do think this tuner is easier to use, and possibly more accurate, but that power supply thing is a deal-breaker for me. I think that the best use for this pedal is if you already have a pedal board with a power supply, or have some alternate source of power. I'm sure there are many players out there with this capability so I can recommend this tuner to all of you!
I guess ultimately the power supply issue isn't as important as accuracy, and flexibility, and the seven semitone flat capability that I discussed before is a pretty big deal. Therefore, I can highly recommend this to anyone who isn't relying on their tuner for power.

MGR/DAIRYBEAT's review "Korg DT-10 Guitar Tuner"

I wanted a Tuner for the periods my guitar is connected to an amp., without having to switch cables and to be able to tune 'silently'. I ordered the Tuner, On-line from The Netherlands, in Germany, by Music Store in Köln. Including shipping, I paid about € 90.00 (I shared the shipping with a very well reviewed Fame SKE C002/W Studio Recording Mic., witch I had ordered as well, I will review that after more recording use).

Near accurate tuning, very well lit in bright or dark surroundings. With one click of the foot you're in tuning mode, without switch noises or sound coming from the amp.

Nothing!

It's a sturdy metal unit, a 'floor type', with a foot operated switch button, with a non-slippery back. It also allowes for flat tuning and it has got a callibration switch. It operates on a 9V battery, 50 hours of continues use, or on a DC 9V connection. It has got 2 outputs, one for tuning with and one for tuning without sound from the amp., thats the one I use and wanted.

I am very pleased with my Korg D-1600 MKII studio recorder, that's why I decided to go for Korg again; I think this company makes classy products.

You'll love this tuner if:
- You love the brushed aluminum
- You are tired pseudo polyphonic modes that only work when it wants to
- The strobe modes annoy you
- Like you jump in with your tuner without feet moving
- You are looking for fast and efficient foremost

You will not like this tuner if:
- You like to give one quarter of one tenth of a cent
- You need an immediate recognition score
- With a Pedaltrain Nano as pedalboard
- You prefer white or black

The DT-10 is an old tuner, and it shows: it is big (but offers a coup led display very nice), and can measure one note at a time. Good thing I have room on my pedalboard, I grant a string at a time (I only have two hands) and I adoooooore his look. It is regrettable that it is not the fastest or the most accurate, but mostly I prefer not to take my head to waste time to keep still green LED (excluding studio conditions).

This is not the perfect tuner, but it is one that is best for me today.

This will soon be 7 years that I use

At the time it was the only model this cheap in the store where I went and where I did all my shopping for gear at the time.

It is easy to use! Robust, it has not aged a bit!

A single button for the bypass works great.

Bought in 2007, it has never posed any problems.

For guitar and bass, Bypass and mute switch button with its discreetly to check your tuning. It is rammed through a transformer with my other BOSS pedals. Reliable and robust, it has everything supported: falls, kicks, sprayed beer customers a little too drunk ...

I use it for my bass all the time even to lead me home, can be a bit less sharp than tell me my digital tuner on the computer. To be compared with the Boss TU-2, it is my favorite!

I really used this model on stage and in rehearsal. The "mute" is very discreetly to change or check the tuning.

Used for 6 years in the studio and especially on stage.
I have already had three tuners for guitars and guitar and bass when I bought it, I had to mount a 6-string bass in F. / B / E / A / D / G, in order to properly adjust the F. (24Hz) and B (31Hz) for all tuners, even those designed for a low, do not necessarily captures the B and even less F.
The LED display is clearly visible even in live situation ie with no light between songs.
Relatively expensive for a tuner, but unbreakable and very accurate.
I would do this choice without hesitation.
