KORG Introduces Sledgehammer and Sledgehammer Pro

New Clip-On Tuner Models for Both the Beginner and the Seasoned Pro

Anaheim, CA– January 22, 2015 - - Korg, a leading manufacturer and distributor of music products, introduces two new clip on tuners at Winter NAMM, the Sledgehammer and the Sledgehammer Pro. These tuners bring advanced new design, operation and functionality to the clip-on tuner world.

“Both products further cement Korg’s position as the leader in tuners,” said Brian Piccolo, Brand Manager for Korg products. “The Sledgehammer line is a great addition to the variety of products we offer, catering to the diverse needs of guitarists everywhere and at every level.”

The Sledgehammer and the Sledgehammer Pro (aimed at the professional musician) both feature a clip that is optimized for attachment to the guitar or bass and provides greater holding power, calibration function that supports all concert pitches and an energy-saving auto power-off function. In addition, both are durable and have a stylish design.

The Sledgehammer also has a color VA liquid crystal display for excellent visibility, modes for guitar and bass, flat and capo settings and convenient functionality, including a memory back up option and an “over-winding” warning function. The Pro has even more accurate tuning with the ultra-high precision of +/-0.1 cent, a high-contrast 3-D visual display and three meter display modes (regular, strobe and half-strobe).
