 Product Description

Acoustic musicians can now monitor their pitch as they play! The AW-2 simply clips on to your instrument, where the backlit display can be positioned for easy viewing. The piezo sensor ensures accurate tuning, even in a noisy environment.

Fast, accurate, and reliable chromatic tuning with clip-on convenience
While clip-on tuners offer convenience to every player, Korgs AW-2 Chromatic Tuner provides the swift and accurate results that todays musicians demand. The needle-style metering and large backlit display provide the ultimate in functional, high-visibility. Using an articulate mounting system, the entire display section can be quickly positioned for easy viewing. With the AW-2 Chromatic Tuner youll be ready for stress-free tuning in any situation.

Double ball joint allows multi-angle adjustment for greatly enhanced flexibility
The tuner display section and the clip section of this chromatic tuner are connected by a double ball joint that provides a broader range of left/right/up/down movement, dramatically increasing the range of adjustment. The AW-2 clip-on tuner makes it easy to adjust the display section for easy viewing, allowing you to tune in a natural position.

Backlight ensures excellent visibility even on a dark stage
The amount of light available to a performer varies greatly. Dim locations such as a stage or orchestra pit, glaring outdoor sunlight, evening dusk, or nighttime illumination are often far from ideal. The AW-2's backlit meter provides three illumination modes: Off mode for brightly lit locations, Soft mode for somewhat dim locations where you want to conserve battery power, and Auto mode for bright illumination in locations of poor visibility. This ensures that you'll be able to tune perfectly under any conditions. In addition, Auto mode automatically switches to the lower brightness of Soft mode when there has been no sound input or button operation for approximately ten seconds, preventing unnecessary battery consumption. Attention has been paid to numerous details to ensure ideal tuning, such as a large display font and a meter that clearly indicates the pitch discrepancy.

Korg's proprietary clip design boasts a stable fit
The AW-2's clip section is a proprietary Korg design in which the opening angle and jaw angle of the clip has been carefully calculated to securely fit a variety of instruments. It boasts a greatly improved fit with your instrument, allowing natural tuning that will not interfere with your performance. This makes the AW-2 an ideal chromatic tuner.

AW-2 includes two clips for use with a variety of wind or string instruments
The sweet spot that will pick up the sound most effectively varies between instruments - the neck or bell of a wind instrument, or the head or tailpiece of a string instrument --- and the shape of the attachment location differs accordingly. The AW-2 Chromatic Tuner comes with two clips (one large, one small), so you can choose depending on your situation or preference. The large clip is ideal for various wind instruments or string instruments, and the small clip is perfect for use on the thin bell region of a trumpet or trombone.

Excellent tuning functionality: a broad tuning range and high precision
In spite of their light weight and ultra-small size, the AW-2 Chromatic Tuner boasts a broad tuning range of A0--C8 and a full complement of solid tuning functionality. A vibration-sensing piezo pickup is built in to the chromatic tuner, ensuring stable tuning even in a noisy environment. You can also tune using the internal mic. In addition, when using the AW-2/AW-2G clip-on tuner in a vertical position, you can use Korg's proprietary Meter Reverse function to switch the meter so that its High (+) indication is upward. The chromatic tuner is powered by a widely available CR2032-type lithium battery, and with the backlight off, the battery life extends to an amazing 150 hours. Numerous other functions are provided, including adjustable calibration to support various concert pitches, auto power off, and memory backup.

Markings indicate pure major third and minor third intervals for beautiful ensemble playing
Inaccuracies of the harmonies in a triad are particularly easy to notice when playing in an ensemble such as a brass band or orchestra. By slightly adjusting the pitch of a major or minor third relative to the equal-tempered interval, a beautiful-sounding pure third can be obtained*. The meter scale of the AW-2 clip-on tuner includes markings to indicate pure major and minor thirds relative to a specified pitch. Simply by tuning your instrument to these markings, you can perform beautiful, pure harmonies when playing in an ensemble.
