Product Description

The Korg GA40 provides superior features like a large, easy-to-see, LCD needle-style display.
The GA40 dedicated Guitar/Bass Tuner is a great value! This dedicated, easy-to-operate guitar/bass tuner features automatic pitch detection. In Guitar mode it supports seven-string guitars (7B through 1E), and in Bass mode it supports six-string basses (Low-B and Hi-C). With the precision you expect from KORG, the GA40 indicates the pitch quickly and accurately. The LCD needle-style display provides both the accuracy of an LCD as well as the easy viewing of a needle indicator, and the display has been enlarged for even better visibility. You can also use the built-in high-sensitivity microphone to tune an acoustic guitar.

OK for what it cost
General
Your general opinion of this product.
There are a lot of tuners to choose from and it was hard to decide which one. This one is OK, not very expensive, and it does work. I wish it was easier to see. I'll be looking for something with a large, well lit display. Also, this does not have an option to run off a DC supply, batteries only, which is a little weak.
Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
It's OK, but don't leave it where it will get knocked around.
