Since producing the world's first rackmount tuner, the DT-1pro, which appeared in 1987, Korg has continued to produce classic models that define the era, including the DTR-1/DTR-2 in 1994 and the DTR-1000/DTR-2000 in 2002. Now, in 2013, Korg unveils its latest rackmount model. The pitchblack Pro features a new 3D visual meter with a three-dimensional expression of light that delivers an unprecedented visual element. Although it's in a rackmount form factor, the body is ultra-lightweight and slim, allowing it to be used anywhere. This is a new generation of rackmount tuner that every guitarist/bassist with professional aspirations should experience.

Lightweight, thin, and removable
While the previous DTR-1000/DTR-2000 models weighed 1.4 kg, the pitchblack Pro is astoundingly light at 363 g. The depth has also been dramatically reduced from 113 mm to 49 mm, allowing it to be installed in an effect pedalboard. The rackmount adapters on the left and right can be attached or detached at a touch, and can be attached to the bottom of the unit to serve as a stand. The unit can also be used in a variety of situations other than in a rack; you can simply set it in a desired location, or attach it to a floor monitor.

Cable Checker function warns of broken or shorted cables
Korg's revolutionary Cable Checker function is built into the pitchblack Pro; simply connect the two ends of your monaural phone cable to the INPUT 1 jack and the CABLE CHECK jack and the display will tell you whether the cable is broken. This is a convenient way to avoid problems on stage or in the studio.

Buffered output minimizes any change in audio quality
The pitchblack Pro is designed with a buffered output to minimize any change or additional noise in the audio input signal. There's also a Mute function that lets you tune without producing sound from the OUTPUT jack. The MUTE jack allows a foot switch to turn mute on/off, for convenient tuning between songs during a live performance.

Closest StoreRegina, Saskatchewan
i tried the behringer BTR2000 and although it was a great tuner i was forced to return it as it didn't track my 5 string bass at all. this tuner on the other hand works flawlessly tracks both my 4 and 5 string basses great. the three display settings are all highly visible and look great and the cable checker function is awesome and extremely easy to use. I highly recommend this tuner to everyone with a guitar or bass guitar looking to stay in tune
