The latest tuner in Korg’s line of flagship tuners has arrived: announcing the PitchHawk-G (AW-3G) for guitar/bass. Providing the high precision and sensitivity that you expect from Korg, a new type of clip offers a firmer grip and greater durability. There’s also an adjustable arm and ball joint that provides flexibility and compact storage, plus a new type of display that’s designed for high visibility and operability, a function that warns against over-winding the first string, and a selection of versatile tuning modes. The PitchHawk is the new standard for all clip-type tuners to follow.
Compact design that can be folded flat for easy transportation
The PitchHawk can be folded flat for easy storage in a pocket of your gig bag. The rubber cushion of the clip is now a slim, straight design that's not at all bulky. Since the clip, the adjustable arm, and the back of the display all use the same curvature, the unit can be compactly folded without any wasted space.
Easy operation, with buttons on the front
Even though it’s an advanced tuner, the PitchHawk features a simple layout, with four buttons located on the front. This intuitive design lets you tune quicker than ever. Since it's used most frequently, the power button has a protrusion that makes it easy to distinguish.
Over-winding warning for the first string, ideal for the beginner
When in guitar mode, the PitchHawk-G helps prevent string breakage by showing a "First string over-winding indicator" on the display if it detects that the thin first string has been tightened excessively. This is especially useful for beginners who may not be familiar with the tuning procedure.
Calibration, auto power-off, and memory backup functions
A variety of functions are available to support your tuning endeavors: the calibration function allows a variety of concert tunings, the auto power-off function saves the battery if you forget to turn the unit off, and the memory backup function preserves your settings even when the power is off.
