    It's a true bypass tuner.

    It's also one of the best tuners I've ever used, and my current favorite of all time in the pedal format.

    And a good value!

    Korg.

    The pedal version definitely is. I run mine before my sunface with no issues at all. It works well, small footprint, good price.

    No issues with the pedal pitchblack, cheap and good.

    Best tuner in its class, definitely. TC and Boss are nowhere near imho. I am currently using H9 tuner, but if I had to go pedal route, I'd go Pitchblack (but not the polyphonic one).

    It's really great. Doesn't affect tone at all.

    My only complaint is that it's hard to read in direct sunlight.

    Mine is faint. But not nasty until I'm playing really loud (read: never)

    Seems like a rack would be a pain to lug around... I would say the Korg is an above average tuner. I busted the 9V power jack (still works), but got a polytune as a backup... now the pitchblack is my backup.

    I have the Pitchblack on three different boards. Two other band members (in one of the outfits I gig wih) have them on their boards. We all love them. They work. They don't mess with the signal. The switch holds up, and the extra power outlet is cool. They're reliable and get the job done. End of story.

    It can be done, folks. Props to Korg.

    Used 2 pitch blacks on separate pedalboards for about 6 years with zero issues. Really great, really smooth. I recently switched to the Korg DT-10 due to top-mounted jacks and it feels and responds exactly the same except the LEDs are much brighter, which I most definitely prefer. I love Korg's stuff.

    I love the accuracy and display of my Pitchblack+
    The only problem is that I have to isolate it via a signal switcher (Empress Buffer+ in my case) because there is a faint yet audible hum when the tuner is engaged if the power supply is not isolated.

    I had the rack version and it was excellent. No loss in tone, etc. Super lightweight. I only traded it in because I was building a new pedalboard and didn't require it any longer.
