Korg PBAD overview

  • 1Description

The Pitchblack Advance from Korg builds upon the success of the Pitchblack Mini and is the professional pedal tuner for the gigging musician. The display features high-brightness color LEDs, nearly doubling the size of the note name display and providing amazing visibility. Whether you're on a dimly lit stage or outdoors in bright sunlight, this display will always be easy to read. The pedal offers ultra-high tuning accuracy of +/- 0.1 cents, while the meter display offers four modes to suit your playing style including regular, strobe, half-strobe, and mirror.

The pedal can be powered via 9V battery, which offers up to a whopping 60 hours of battery life. It can also be integrated into a pedalboard with an optional 9 VDC power supply designed for effect units. Additionally, the unit offers a 9 VDC power pass-thru that can power an additional pedal. The true bypass allows the signal of your instrument to pass through without affecting the sound. The Pitchblack Advance ships with one 9V battery.

  • Advanced design with a highly visible display
  • Ultra-high tuning accuracy of +/- 0.1 cents
  • Four meter display modes
    • Regular: An LED on the right will light up if the pitch is high, and an LED on the left will light up if the pitch is low
    • Strobe: The LEDs light up, running from left to right if the pitch is high and from right to left if the pitch is low
    • Half-Strobe: The LEDs on the right will strobe if the pitch is high, and the LEDs on the left will strobe if the pitch is low. When the pitch is in tune, only the center LED is lit
    • Mirror: Tune your instrument so that the two illuminated LEDs in the left and right side of
      the LED meter coincide in the center. The farther your instrument is from the correct pitch, the farther apart the illuminated LEDs will be
  • True bypass has no effect on the sound

    Korg PBAD reviews

    Pitchblack Advance Pedal Tuner is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest! KORG Pitchblack Advance Pedal Tuner The new KORG Pitchblack Advance Pedal Tuner is the greatest thing since sliced bread. It is very easy to operate. It offers a much better way to tune your guitar than the clip-on type tuners, which I was constantly fumbling with. You can place the tuner on a table and just tune up; it does not have to be on the floor. The new Pitchblack Advance has an excellent, larger display than its predecessor. Toss out all the flimsy clip-on tuners and purchase the new KORG Pitchblack Advance tuner. You will really like it a lot!
