KORG's clip-type tuners can be attached directly to your instrument for easy tuning. The new lineup includes the AW-LT100M which supports a variety of orchestral instruments, the AW-LT100T which is optimized for trumpet and trombone, and the AW-LT100V which is designed specifically for violin and viola.
The AW-LT100M / T / V achieve an amazing battery life of approximately 100 hours using a single AAA battery. The body is lightweight, and triangular shuttle switches allow for intuitive operation. In a first for clip-type tuners for orchestral instruments, these tuners feature a color LCD that ensures excellent visibility. Each of the three models in this lineup is equipped with the optimal type of clip and a dedicated tuning mode, giving you the best possible tuning experience for your orchestral instrument.
Instead of the button cell battery used in many previous clip-type tuners, the AW-LT100M / T / V uses a single AAA battery that's easy to obtain and has a higher capacity. An alkaline battery allows an amazing 100 hours of continuous operation. With long-life design that's more than 12 times as long as previous models, it delivers extremely high cost-effectiveness. Even if you leave the tuner powered-on during your performance, you can continue using it for an extended time without having to replace the battery.
Even though these tuners use a AAA battery, which is much heavier than a button cell battery, the body of the tuner itself has been made even lighter, providing an addition reduction in weight. With a light weight that matches, or beats, earlier models using a button cell battery, you can use these tuners without any sense of unnaturalness, even if they are left attached to your instrument.
The VA-type color LCD display provides excellent visibility. With a high-brightness white backlight and a color LCD meter, you'll enjoy high contrast and a wide viewing angle, ensuring that the tuning status is always shown clearly.
In addition to the standard "slow" setting, AW-LT100M / T tuners also let you switch the meter speed to "fast," which responds quickly even when you transition between notes. You can choose the setting that's best for your situation, for example by using "slow" for typical tuning or sustained notes, and selecting "fast" when you want to check your pitch in real time while you perform.
The AW-LT100M is equipped with a large clip that can be attached to a variety of orchestral instruments such as a clarinet, sax, oboe, bassoon, horn, euphonium, tuba, cello, or contrabass. The double mechanism of a movable arm and a ball joint allows the tuner to be positioned at any angle you like.
The AW-LT100T is equipped with a small clip that's optimized for attachment to the bell of a trumpet, cornet, or trombone. You can easily position the tuner for best visibility, allowing you to stay aware of your own pitch while you practice.
The AW-LT100V is equipped with a dedicated clip that attaches firmly to the peg box of a violin or viola. The tuning meter is directly in your field of vision, and the tuner can be left attached without obstructing your performance in any way. In addition to the conventional chromatic mode, this tuner provides a violin mode and viola mode that let you tune with perfect fifths. In each mode, the string number is displayed beside the note name, ensuring a reliable and intuitive tuning experience.
The AW-LT100G / B feature an easily understandable interface that can be intuitively operated with one hand. A triangular shuttle switch is placed at left and right, and simply by rotating it a click up or down, you can perform all operations smoothly and without stress, from turning the power on/off to switching the display mode or setting the calibration.
With a calibration function that supports a variety of concert pitches, an auto power-off function, and a memory backup function, these units support your tuning needs in a variety of ways.
