Gearank Recommendation

The Pitchblack Custom 3D appeared on our recommended list for Pedal Tuners from November 2019 until November 2020.


The Korg Pitchblack Custom 3D Pedal Tuner is all about visibility and accuracy. The display is bright and easy to see on stage.

It easily stands out with its big display which provides better viewing of your tuning, with four display modes: regular, meter, half strobe and strobe.

It can run on a 9V battery for up to 30 hours (for alkaline batteries), or you can get the optional 9V DC power supply.

The default color is of the pedal is black, which further accentuates the display. But Korg did release limited edition colored versions in red, blue and white.

If you’re looking for an easy to use, plug-and-play pedal tuner, then this a reasonable option to consider getting.
