KORG tuners have a 40-year history that began with the world’s first needle-style tuner. While we have produced many different types, including tuners with unrivaled precision and ones with epoch-making functionality, these products were made possible by KORG’s unwavering commitment to quality. In other words, our attitude of sincerely listening to the voice of the users, our revolutionary ideas, and our high level of technological ability are what underlie the long history of KORG tuners.
Now, KORG announced a new lineup aimed at achieving even greater innovation. The name “Custom Shop” designates this tuner as a flagship model that is a representative of KORG’s highest levels of technology. Its design features a beautiful meter displayed by a CMD panel, ultra-precision detection, and careful attention paid to appearance and feel. KORG’s high technological ability and commitment to quality have taken shape as the “Custom Shop” name.
The Sledgehammer Custom 100 features a newly improved design that takes advantage of its distinctive cylindrical body. By using a single AAA battery, it allows approximately 100 hours of continuous operation. This long-life design provides seven times the operating time of the previous model, and is also extremely economical. A tuner is an indispensable companion for an instrument, and this unit will be a reliable partner for any musician's daily practice or performance.
A major feature of the Sledgehammer is the shuttle switch that can be easily operated with a single hand. just as if you were turning a tuning peg of your instrument while playing a string. This shuttle switch undergoes a further evolution on the Sledgehammer Custom 100, adding a cool illuminated shuttle light to ensure good visibility even on a dark stage. Improved design also enhances the durability and feel of the clip.
The 3D visual meter exemplifies the Custom Shop series. A large and easily visible note name indication and the distinct movement of brightly illuminated LEDs make the pitch difference and change instantly recognizable. This new 3D visual meter makes it simple to tune with a precision of ±0.1 cent.
Designed with the professional user in mind, KORG’s Sledgehammer Custom 100 offers extremely accurate tuning with a detection range of +/- 0.1 cents, a level of precision that is uncommon of clip-on tuners.
