Since producing the world's first rackmounted tuner, the DT-1pro which appeared in 1987, Korg has continued to produce classic models that define the era, including the DTR-1/DTR-2 in 1994 and the DTR-1000/DTR-2000 in 2002. Now in 2013, Korg unveils its latest rackmount model. The pitchblack Pro features a new 3D visual meter that's so beautiful you'll think of it as an aspect of your stage performance. The three-dimensional expression of light delivers an unprecedentedly visual element. Although it's in a rackmount form factor, the body is ultra-lightweight and slim, allowing it to be used anywhere. This is a new generation of rackmount tuner that every guitarist/bassist with professional aspirations should experience.
KORG tuners have a 40-year history that began with the world’s first needle-style tuner. While we have produced many different types of tuners, including tuners with unrivaled precision and tuners with epoch-making functionality, these products were made possible by KORG’s unwavering commitment to quality. In other words, our attitude of sincerely listening to the voice of the user, our revolutionary ideas, and our high level of technological ability are what underlie the long history of KORG tuners.
Now, KORG announces a new lineup aimed at achieving even greater accomplishments. The name “Custom Shop” designates this tuner as a flagship model that is representative of KORG’s highest levels of technology. Its design features a beautiful meter displayed by a CMD panel, ultra-precision detection, and careful attention paid to appearance and feel. KORG’s high technological ability and commitment to quality have taken shape as the “Custom Shop” name.
The Pitchblack Pro is a rackmount tuner that's easy to see even from a distance, allowing you to tune confidently. It's ideal not only on stage but also during rehearsals or recording. The crisp lights in your rack will attest to your professionalism.
The newly-developed tuning meter provides a revolutionary visual effect. In addition to the powerfully illuminated color LEDs that provide unparalleled brightness, the special design with treated acryl allows a three-dimensional view of the light, from the surface of the source all the way into its depths. This means that from any distance or angle, discrepancies or change in pitch will be instantly obvious. The Pitchblack Pro brings the guitarists/bassist a new dimension of tuning experience.
There are three display modes available for the large meter.
