Dedicated and precise tuner for Hawaiian music performers
Korg, who has sold over twenty million tuners worldwide, has now created the Korg HA40, a dedicated tuner for the instruments of Hawaiian music; the ukulele, taken up by numerous people because of its beginner-friendly ease of playing, and the steel guitar, widely loved for its distinctive sound and performance technique.
In spite of its compact size, the Korg HA40 is a high-precision LCD tuner with a detection accuracy of better than +/-1 cent, allowing you to tune accurately. It's designed with the motif of a turtle, beloved in Hawaii as a guardian deity of the ocean.
Support for various types of Hawaiian performance tunings
The Korg HA40 has a detection range of C1 @bbbbb (24.500 Hz) to C8 (4186 Hz), and also allows you to tune sharp or flat relative to standard pitch. You can also adjust the pitch up or down in semitone steps and tune your instrument with a capo still attached.
The Korg HA40 supports a variety of tunings for Hawaiian instruments, two modes for ukulele and five for steel guitar. For the ukulele, the Korg HA-40 provides LOW-G tuning suitable for solo performance as well as D tuning (American tuning) which raises the conventional C tuning by one step. A broad range of pitch detection is also supported allowing you to even tune steel guitars that have more than six strings.
Sound Out mode
The Korg HA40 Tuner's Sound Out mode uses the internal speaker to play a reference tone for each string of the instrument you're tuning. This allows you to tune more accurately by using both eye and ear as well as train your sense of pitch by listening to the reference tone.
The Korg HA40 provides an output jack that can be connected directly to your amp/speaker system. This allows you to leave your instrument connected to the tuner while you perform so you can easily check tuning at any time. By using the optional CM-100L contact microphone you can tune acoustic instruments accurately even in noisy environments.
Auto Power Off function
The Auto Power Off function conserves battery life by automatically turning the power off when the unit is not in use for ten minutes.
