    Hello and welcome to the KORG GA-2/GA-2 Tuner thread. I will be your host.

    I picked up the aforementioned tuner today (right) and I'm impressed. I have a couple of CA-30s (left) in storage, but compared to the GA-2, they are overkill for my purposes : tune my guitar and check the intonation.

    Anyway, I hope that this information is applicable to others(?)

    Thanks for sharing, ZackyDog. I assume you can plug the instrument cable directly on the side. I have an old Korg tuner that doubles as a metronome.

    I bought one that is so complicate I just use snarks now. One of Dylan's people "borrowed" my first Korg back in NY in the 1980.

    I like those micro headstock and sound hole tuners from daddario, I wish I could fit one inside an F hole on my Gretsch.

    De nada; yes, you can plug into the jack at the bottom right.

    I looked at those. They are purportedly good for tuning but don't work well for checking intonation.

    KORG , I'm very pleased with all 3 of mine . I have the KORG Pitchblack Pedal on my board and 2 Pitchawk-6 Clip-On Tuners . Al 3 are very accurate and reliable .
    I once bought a Petersen Clip on and it took all of 4 minutes to send it back , just was not impressed . And a friend gave me a TC Electronic Poly Tune Clip On as a gift . It's ok and does the job but its limited to " swiveling " on the headstock . Half the time I can't angel it to see it comfortably . That's what I really like about KORG Clip On's , I can see it comfortably and it's accurate too . These are the models I have

    Korg, sounds like a Klingon name

    Mine is the TM-50, but has the same capabilities. It doesn't have back lighting though, which is a pain. Other than that, works well and is what I use when tuning up new strings. Otherwise, for everyday stuff I use a Snark on the headstock.

    Looks Nice!

    Maybe when a Klingon gets Borg'd.
