NAMM 2018: KORG OLED Screen Guitar Tuners. Plus Classy New KDM-3 Digital Metronome

Korg releases 'revolutionary' OLED screen clip-on guitar and bass tuners with polyphonic technology. Plus the new KDM-3 Digital Metronome is the perfect mechanical metronome replacement.

AW-OTG Tuners

Korg has released new guitar and bass tuners that feature a bright OLED screen; the same technology used in high-end televisions and smartphones. This tech gives the tuners great visibility from any angle and has been combined with some clever polyphonic pitch detection and strobe display potential.

The Korg AW-OTG-POLY OLED Polyphonic Clip-On Guitar Tuner has the ability to detect all 6 guitar strings at once. This can make tuning incredibly fast. The tuner has enhanced accuracy over its predecessors, right down to 0.1 cents. The tuner can also be set to display different tuning graphics- it provides the highest accuracy when set to 'strobe' (based on a rotating dial that 'slows' until the correct pitch is detected). The tuner has a chord detection mode, along with tempo detection making it ideal for practice sessions. The tuner is also available in non-polyphonic modes and for bass guitar:

The OLED screen gives these new tuners exceptional clarity, which is just what musicians need on a stage.

KDM-3 Metronome

The new Korg KDM-3 Digital Metronome is a digital metronome that looks like no other. If you love the look of a classic mechanical metronome, this is the digital metronome for you.

Korg has redesigned the KDM-3 to resemble the classic proportions of the mechanical design that is often depicted on top of home pianos and in practice rooms. Unlike the classic mechanical metronome, the KDM-3 includes a wide range of sounds along with adjustable volume and headphone output; making it ideal for modern musicians.

The KDM-3 also includes a handy 19 beat patterns to support songs in any genre, and it has "sound out mode" to help you tune to a reference pitch. A timer mode helps with the basics, while an incredible battery life (120 hours continuous) guarantees you'll have operation through many practice sessions.

This design combines the classic aesthetic of a clockwork metronome with the modern functionality of a digital device; ideal for setting up at home or in the practice room.
