[NAMM] Korg AW-2 Tuner
Korg introduces the AW-2 and AW-2G clip-on chromatic tuners.
The AW-2 includes two clips (large and small) to accommodate a variety of concert band and orchestral instruments with different tuning "sweet spot" locations. The AW-2G comes with an adjustable-angle clip pad that is optimized for attaching securely to all guitar headstocks or other flat instrument surfaces. The AW-2G's display can be moved to either side of the clip, and when positioned behind the headstock, will not be visible to an audience.
Both tuners' double ball-joint allows multi-angle positioning. An internal backlight ensures visibility, even on a dimly lit stage, and the backlight can be switched between Soft mode for low illumination and the high-brightness Auto mode, or turned off for well-lit situations. The energy-saving Auto mode automatically switches to the low-power Soft mode when no sound is present.
