If you are looking for an inexpensive, compact and flexible tuner, then the Korg AW2G Guitar Tuner might be

just what you are looking for. Korg has an excellent reputation of producing some of the best tuners that the world has to offer and the Korg AW2 Guitar Tuner is no exception. Korg is one of the most trusted names in the tuning industry and we are confident you will be happy with this model as well.

Korg AW2G clip-on-tuner design

The Korg AW2G Guitar Tuner is a clip-type tuner, a very popular and type of tuner because they can be left on whist playing. Many clip-type tuners have drawbacks in the sense that they generally do not fit a wide variety of guitars, but Korg takes care of this issue by providing a proprietary design for the “jaws” of this device so it can fit naturally on any size guitar and not interfere with tuning. In fact, it comes with 2 clips, one large and one small so it can adapt to almost any instrument.  In tuning, it is truly the little things that matter! Korg has also included a double ball joint that allows for maximum movement either up/down/left/right. This was a small issue with earlier models such as the AW1 and 2, but has now been completely corrected and solved with the AW2G model.

Korg AW2G Features

 

AW2 LCD display

The Korg AW2G Guitar Tuner also has a LCD display that is easy to see and comes with 3 different illumination modes. Since each musician prefers different levels of illumination and each playing location differs in lighting, this makes the AW2G a great choice for tuning versatility. In fact, this tuner will auto-change from a bright mode to a dimmer mode then finally to auto-shut off when not being used, which is a great energy-saving function to preserve the battery life.

How the Korg AW2G Guitar Tuner Works To Create Error Free Tuning

The AW2G gives anyone cable free tuning by measuring string vibration. This makes this tuner “smarter” than other tuners because each note has a specific rate at which it vibrates and the Korg AW2G Guitar Tuner “knows” this and can help you tune accordingly. This tuner is also a very practical choice because, unless you are alone, it is nearly impossible to get into an environment quiet enough to effectively tune a guitar. With the Korg AW2G Guitar Tuner detecting and matching note vibrations, the result is a perfectly tuned instrument. Ever had a tuner that a problem picking up low E? It creates many musical limitations. This problem is not a concern with the AW2G because of its accuracy. After all, it’s a Korg, what else can we say!

Korg AW2G reference pitches and memory

The Korg AW2G Guitar Tuner has reference pitches from 410Hz-480Hz adjusting in 1Hz increments. This model also comes with a memory function to remember your calibrations.

Korg AW2G size

Korg AW2G conclusion    4.5 star rating

The Korg AW2G clip-on-tuner is an accurate, well designed and compact tuner. For music enthusiasts, it is often the little things that matter. If you want a clip-on-tuner details like size, screen visibility and ability of the tuner to stay on the guitar firmly really matter.
