    I've enjoyed my Korg Pitchblack from a readability standpoint, but it's not always the most accurate. Definitely interested in giving this a shot though. Anyone have any experience with it?

    I feel like if you thought the Pitchblack was inaccurate, this thing would be way off!

    The original is accurate enough for rock n roll, and of the polyphonic tuners I've seen, this one's got the biggest lights

    The original is definitely accurate enough for rock n roll, but I am skeptical of it as a polyphonic tuner.

    I am a fan of giving everything a shot at least once though.

    I probably will wait for a local store to get one and try it first, even though I Korg is a brand I trust as far as tuners

    The new Korg Polytune info site states that the Korg Polytune Pitchblack is accurate to +/- 1 cent. This is as accurate as any Peterson tuner states in their specs.

    In this digital age and with the competition being what it is, I just do not believe that any company is going to put out a product with a less accurate tuning ability. There are too many other choices being offered, and they all offer similar features.

    Even though tuners offer multiple tuning modes and other features, I still only use a tuner as I have all these years, so that stuff doesn't interest me at all.

    I'm going to look into the Korg Poly Tune, as it has a bigger and more visable dial.

    I think Peterson tuners are actually +/- 0.1 percent accurate.

    I saw it in the Sweetwater catalog, so I thought it was out now
