In addition to the colour and what Korg says is a rugged finish, the Pitchblack Advance is lighter in weight and display features high-brightness colour LEDs, nearly doubling the size of the note name display and providing increased visibility. Expected SSP £ 69.00 inc VAT.

Also on the way is a clutch of new clip-on tuners, led by Korg’s guitar and bass and OTB Polyphonic models with new OLED display technology.

Korg says: ‘The AW-OTG-POLY/AW-OTB-POLY represents the perfect combination of exceptional precision and stunning visibility that guitarists and bassists have been longing for. Each tuner comes equipped with cutting-edge OLED screen technology, allowing the display to be clear, smooth and perfectly visible from any angle.
