Korg GA-30
I've used this tuner for about 7 years, which is most of the time I've spent playing guitar. I like the fact that this tuner is small, portable, and easy to use. It's also easy to use with acoustic guitars since it has a microphone that is built-in, which will work pretty well. That being said, sometimes it's difficult to use in live situations; if you gig you might want to look into a pedal tuner, as that would probably be less susceptible to noise. Even with electric guitar, the Ga-30 can get pretty tough to manage in loud environments. Even though amateurs will tell you that once you're plugged in, the microphone stops picking up noise, that's not really the case. The mic still interferes with the signal. Basically, this tuner is great as long as it stays at home. It's cheap enough that it's pretty much worth the extra cost; why bother taking the pedal out and setting it up if you only need it once a day? As far as these handheld tuners go, Korg tends to make pretty reliable ones so there's no really bad purchases to be made if you buy one of theirs. However, this one is my favorite because in addition to the microphone, it will play the pitches you need if you'd rather tune by ear, and it also can tune the guitar as far as 5 semitones flat (or anywhere from E to B). It works just as well on bass (but again, only when there's not a lot of interference), which makes it handy if you need to pass it around before practice. I definitely would tell anybody who needs a reliable tuner for home use to pick up one of these. It's no gem, but it does the trick.

MGR/Anonymous's review"Korg GA-30 Guitar Bass Tuner"

Korg GA-30
Paid $21.95 plus tax at a guitar store. Got ripped off.

It is a very good tuner. Makes me feel good about getting ripped off. Well it was actually three dollars cheaper than MSRP but it's a really nice tuner. Very accurate. LED lights make tuning a breeze. It can tune a guitar or bass, with up to 5 steps down. The built-in speaker generates tones to tune to. Cool silver finish. Easy to get AAA batteries last forever.

Nothing really, just that he way you have to open the whole thing to change the batteries, makes it look a bit cheap. Also there's no output so you can't put it through effects. But for a beginner/intermediate it's great.

Very durable, no problems whatsoever.

A must have, very affordable, better than many others that are more $$$.

Korg GA-30
Purchased in November 2003 for € 23.

I find it useful as well for my bass (connected mode) for my acoustic guitar (microphone mode).

The needle is accurate, we expect no less.
The tuner also plays us each note of each chord (bass or guitar) for former tuning by ear.

The plastic case does not seem too strong, but no problem from the moment one takes care of his equipment.

Very good quality / price ratio.

good product, clear light, to choose an alternate tuning and choose between guitar and bass. I've used for years, now I prefer the version clip. level accuracy is perhaps a tad below the DT10 or dtr1000.

Korg GA-30
I have this squeaking past 6 years.
It was my first tuner that I bought at the same time as my first guitar.
It is an indispensable companion especially when you start!
It is the strength of this object impresses me most, ease of use is significant bass and function to share with others!
This may be a bit expensive for the few options ...
I would definitely do it again this election! This thing is indestructible! He recently spent 24 hours in water and after drying and pillage new, miracle, everything works without problems! (That's what made me decide to notice cried) There!

An entry-level tuner not very accurate but good value for money.

Okay for starters, although I suggest putting a little more to buy a better tuner.

- How long have you use it?
I use depuoi 7 years

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
I like it because it is prcis and you can plug the guitar directly above.

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
I had jur c'tait that the best tuners in the style that price. He was right. I do not ssay others.

- How do you report qualitprix?
Okay. But I'm also a little stingy ^ ^

- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
If I had not the hardware that I currently (and VOX pdalier pick tuner won in a contest and my ear dvelop enough now) I would do this choice. Or I'll take that one can be put on the head of the guitar. It's practical too.
The default is that once he gets a buger manierre! The arrow going in all directions, it picks up sound from from anywhere. Well ... This is what a tuner built-in microphone.

Korg GA-30
- I use it for about 1 month
- It does not really place, in terms of design has not break bricks but dj (and that's not the most important thing for a tuner), I note a time r response a little slow (o the 9 / 10).
- I did try earlier stages than my teacher (the korg gt3) but I find that the GA-30 is most thanks prcis guille on the screen.
- I pay 18, or the quality is to go so good value qualitprix trs.
- Is what I would do this choice? I would take may be the ga-40 but I do not regret my purchase in any way.
