Ultra-compact LCD Needle-Style Chromatic & Dedicated Guitar and Bass Tuner. This dedicated guitar/bass tuner lets you select either Guitar mode or Bass mode for truly easy operation with automatically detected pitch. The wide detection range supports 7-string guitar (7B through 1E) in Guitar mode, and 6-string bass (Low-B, Hi-C) in Bass mode. A high-sensitivity mic is built-in, allowing easy and accurate tuning of acoustic guitars.
Ultra-compact Body with a "Tilt Slit"
Although the GA-1 is small, thin, and light, don’t let the pocket-sized body fool you. The GA-1 can accurately
tune a wide range of instruments. From studio to stage, tuning is easy and convenient. The back of the unit includes a unique
arc-shaped "tilt slit" that lets you insert a plastic card for use as a handy stand..
High-Precision LCD Meter
The meter section uses a LCD needle, combining the accuracy of an LCD with the easy visibility of a needle, and providing a stable display. Additional visual feedback is provided by LEDs that indicate pitch deviation.
Sound Out -- Internal Speaker Provides a Reference Pitch
In addition to visual tuning via meter, the GA-1/CA-1 can play reference pitches from the internal speaker (Sound Out) for
tuning by ear. Each press of the Sound switch will cycle the output sound notes. On the GA-1, 7B->6E->5A->4D->3G->2B->1E in Guitar mode, or LB->4E->3A->2D->1G->HC in Bass mode. On the CA-1, A4-Bb4 notes commonly used for tuning wind instruments. Or you can hold down the Sound switch to change the cycle to the semitone intervals from C4 through C5 (one octave), allowing reference pitches for any instrument to be sounded quickly.
Quinta Flat Tuning mode (GA-1)
The GA-1’s Quinta Flat Tuning mode supports the lowered tunings used in heavy metal styles to give more weight to the
sound. Many dedicated guitar tuners only support a maximum of four semitones below standard pitch, but the GA-1 gives
you five steps of flatted tuning, extending as far as five semitones below standard pitch, and supporting even super-long scale
guitars that are five frets longer than conventional guitars.
Auto Power Off Function
If you leave the unit powered-on for 20 minutes without performing any operation, the Auto Power Off function will turn the
power off automatically, avoiding unnecessary battery consumption.
Approximately 100 hours of continuous use
Low-power consumption design allows an amazing 100 hours (approximate) of continuous battery life (A4 continuous input,
Meter mode, zinc-carbon batteries).
