    I put a date of purchase in 2005, but in fact I feel like I've had at least 10 years.

    Before I had a tuner bought in 1993 when I started the guitar on a dry, he grilled, I replaced the Korg, and not have to go back since.

    WHAT I LIKE:
    - Grants as well as an electric dryer with a microphone.
    - 2 jack sockets (in and out), which keeps the tuner plugged ... I have not noticed any significant change in the sound of my guitar (Strat), so I am tempted to say "true-bypass" but it remains to be seen.
    - Low profile
    - Solid (still active after all this time, ie a sign ;)

    What I like least:
    - To avoid outside in good weather because of insufficient brightness LEDs, especially with a…

    - Low profile
    - Solid (still active after all this time, ie a sign ;)

    What I like least:
    - To avoid outside in good weather because of insufficient brightness LEDs, especially with a little old battery.
    - No auto power off, so better avoid leaving lights

    I read a comment here as what was necessary (LA not 440 hz?) ... I have not noticed.

    I mounted a pedalcase and I planned to invest in a Boss TU-3 which has very good advice. In the meantime I put my Korg in and finally, I'll leave because:
    - Now it is connected to my power supply, more battery problem
    - I play inside, its brightness is sufficient
    - It is easier to fit in my suitcase a Boss pedal over the place it is

    I judge the value for money excellent. Following are few better, I can not say I did not test. In all cases, 20 € we pay for and nothing prevents to buy a better and more expensive later, Korg will always be there in the spare wheel.

    This little box does not appear very strong, but ultimately it proves reliable over time and that's all you asked!
    No lizard, it gives ...
    on the other hand, beware! I was shocked to grant Korg guitar on this and other software on a tuner, record catches, and then noticed that there were few percent shift, quite annoying in the end. But I do not really know which of the two was right. I never felt, otherwise the Korg was false.
    Moral: do always use a single tuner!

    The Korg GT-3 lends bass and guitars EADGBE E. Sometimes I use it because of its small size.
    The housing is as robust as the power provided by a 9V battery foolproof.
    On a small stage it may help (if not better) but I recommend for any recording studio where he will reserve too much on the accuracy of approximation.

    It is now over 3 years I use this tuner.
    Previously I was using the old version of Matrix SR1000 A model of that silent imprcision.

    Positives:
    - It gives little difficulty all my guitars (acoustic, electric, bass).
    - It is rsistant because I repeatedly dropped from a table / chair / bed / etc flycase.
    - Can be used in the semi-dark thanks to LEDs.
    - Recognition of notes.

    Point ngatifs:
    - It's not a monster of precision, and according to the instruments it is sometimes necessary to adjust the tuning of the strings to each other.
    - Submitted Lumire a lively reading of the dial is sometimes difficult.

    In the end, a good quality price, even if with the exprience I would p…

    The Korg GT-3 is a general guitar tuner for use in any capacity. It's probably best suited for use during practicing rather than live shows, but it will work fine for any situation where you want to tune. It's got both a 1/4" input and output and a built in microphone, so you can tune either electrically or acoustically. This tuner also doubles as a bass tuner, as it is designed for either purpose. It also has a meter showing if you're sharp or flat, so you've got pretty much everything you need to tune up quickly right here. We have one of these at the studio where I work, which runs on batteries so I'm not sure if it also has a power supply option as well. So while the GT-3 isn't th…

We have one of these at the studio where I work, which runs on batteries so I'm not sure if it also has a power supply option as well. So while the GT-3 isn't the most in depth tuner out there, for simple tuning purposes it will work fine for guitar or bass guitar. I'd probably recommend this mostly for beginners or those who won't be playing in a live situation, as this isn't the best tuner for a gig. The reason is that it might be hard to see in the dark and you'd have to plug into and out of it. The Boss TU-2 or TU-3 is definitely the way to go if you're looking for a tuner for live shows, although it will cost you a good amount more than the GT-3. As far as cheap and simple tuners go, the Korg GT-3 is really as good as any out there, as even though it doesn't stand out too much, it's very reasonably priced and will get the job done just fine. It definitely isn't flashy and doesn't have a real chromatic mode, Korg does make some of the best tuners out there, so even their cheap models are above average like this one...

    Korg GT-3 Guitar TunerPublished on 03/04/10 at 13:58
    This is a pretty basic tuner. It has a 1/4" input for plugging in an electric instrument (guitar, bass) and a microphone for picking up acoustics. It's pretty much geared towards guitar tuning, as the only pitches that it really recognizes are the guitar's string pitches. It works OK with bass too, though I seem to struggle to get it to be really accurate when playing with bass. I have some history with this tuner. If you play acoustic guitar at home a lot, and don't usually run it through an amp or anything, I think that this might be a good choice for you. Even if you play electric at home a bunch, this will work great. It's basically not ideal for live situations, or any situation where …

If you play acoustic guitar at home a lot, and don't usually run it through an amp or anything, I think that this might be a good choice for you. Even if you play electric at home a bunch, this will work great. It's basically not ideal for live situations, or any situation where there is going to be a lot of noise interference. In which case getting a pedal tuner is probably the best bet. Some of those can actually act as a power supply to all of your other pedals, assuming its the same make. But this tuner is ideal for the dabbler and dilettante, it's got a relatively good response and doesn't get wacky and inaccurate like some of the other tuners I've worked with, as long as you aren't in a noisy environment. That being said, the tuner is obviously limited in its functionality. If you are a beginner, or have no real interest in playing live or anything, it's not a problem, but since almost every real player is going to eventually play some sort of situation like that, this might be a bad choice. It could be worth investing in a higher quality tuner unless you never use a 1/4" cable, which is unlikely.
