The new style of tuner for the acoustic guitar
--A tuner that can be attached to the sound hole.
Since the KORG AW-1 appeared, clip-on tuners have been the standard for tuning an acoustic guitar. However, some guitarists may feel that a clip tuner attached to the headstock is too distant from the eye, and that it’s annoying to have a tuner attached to the headstock.
KORG has responded by releasing a revolutionary new tuner. The Rimpitch is a unique tuner that you use by attaching it to the sound hole of your acoustic guitar. It provides an incredibly convenient viewing angle, since you can see the tuning meter within the natural angle of your sight. With a compact size, it's visually unobtrusive since it fits inside the guitar's sound hole and besides being easy to fit and remove. You need to check it out!
- Attach inside the sound hole and tune with a natural line of sight
- Fits a variety of acoustic guitars
- Piezo pickup rapidly and accurately detects the sound
- High-brightness LED for excellent visibility
Attach inside the sound hole and tune with a natural line of sight
To use the Rimpitch, you attach it to the lower side of the sound hole. This means that you'll be able to check the tuning meter at the closest possible distance within your natural angle of vision. Since it's attached in a position where only the performer can casually see it, it will be virtually unnoticed by the audience. This is the ideal tuner for people who don't want to appear to be using a tuner during a live performance.
Since you can leave the Rimpitch attached when stowing your guitar in its case, transportation and storage could not be more convenient.
*The Rimpitch is only for use with six-string acoustic guitars.
Fits a variety of acoustic guitars
The Rimpitch can be installed in round sound holes with a diameter of 100 mm±3 mm, allowing it to fit a wide range of acoustic guitars. There's a hook that keeps it from falling, and since the portion that touches the guitar is made of rubber, there's no danger that your valuable instrument will be scratched
Piezo pickup rapidly detects the sound
The Rimpitch detects the pitch by sensing the vibration of the guitar body. Since the design places the piezo pickup close to the body of the guitar, the pitch is detected quickly and accurately.
High-brightness LED for excellent visibility
High-brightness LEDs are used for the tuning meter and for the string name indicator, ensuring excellent visibility even on a dimly-lit stage.
