Ultra-compact, LCD Needle-Style Chromatic
High accuracy and superb functionality have made Korg tuners the worldwide
favorite. And now, the new CA-1 joins the best-selling CA series of tuners. With
even more features, like a pitch reference tone and marks for pure major thirds
and minor thirds, the CA-1 packs basic functionality and convenient tuning
functions into ultra-compact bodies.

Wide Range of Pitch Detection
This compact chromatic tuner supports a broad range of C1 (32.70 Hz)-C8 (4186.01
Hz), allowing speedy and high-precision tuning of wind, string, keyboard, and
other instruments. This tuner is ideal for tuning even low-register notes
containing numerous overtones that are often difficult to tune. A
high-sensitivity mic is built-in, allowing easy and accurate tuning of acoustic
instruments such as ukuleles. A separately sold CM-100 contact mic can also be
used to send the vibrations directly to the tuner for even more accurate tuning.
Ultra-compact body with a "Tilt Slit"
Although the CA-1 is small, thin, and light, donít let its pocket-sized body
fool you. The CA-1 packs the functionality needed for tuning a wide range of
instruments. From studio to stage, tuning is easy and convenient. The back of
the unit includes a unique arc-shaped "tilt slit" that lets you insert a plastic
card for use as a handy stand.
High-precision LCD Meter
The meter section uses a LCD needle, combining the accuracy of an LCD with the
easy visibility of a needle, and providing a stable display. Additional visual
feedback is provided by LEDs that indicate pitch deviation.
In addition to visual tuning via meter, the CA-1 can play reference pitches from
its internal speaker (Sound Out) for tuning by ear. Each press of the Sound
switch will cycle through the A4-Bb4 notes commonly used for tuning wind
instruments. Or you can hold down the Sound switch to change the cycle to the
semitone intervals from C4 through C5 (one octave), allowing reference pitches
for any instrument to be sounded quickly.
The Calibration function (410-480 Hz) supports a wide range of standard pitches,
and can be adjusted in 1 Hz steps for accurate and flexible tuning to any song
or key. Thanks to the Memory Backup function, the Calibration and reference
pitch are remembered even when the power is turned off.
(However, these settings will be initialized when the batteries are replaced.)
Auto Power Off Function
The power will turn off automatically, if the unit is left powered-on for 20
minutes without performing any operation, avoiding unnecessary battery
Approximately 100 hours of Continuous Use
Low-power consumption design allows an amazing 100 hours (approximate) of
continuous battery life (A4 continuous input, meter mode, zinc-carbon
* Even if the pitch is within the detection
range, detection may not be possible for instrumental sounds that contain a
large number of overtones or have a rapid decay.
