The tuner is approximately the size of a credit card.

Melville, New York (February 26, 2016) -- Smaller in size than the previous Pitchblack, the durable new Pitchblack mini (PBmini) from Korg was designed to take up less space on the users’ pedalboard. With ultra-high-precision tuning, superior functionality, true bypass design, and a large LED display, the Pitchblack mini is positioned to exceed the needs of any guitar player. The PBmini has a minor footprint (approximately the size of an average credit card), battery or DC power operated and weighing only 4.5 ounces, the Pitchblack mini inherits accuracy and ease of use from Korg’s 50 years of tuning innovation.

Equipped with a large 7-segment color LED, the note indication and the smooth moving meter indicator deliver excellent visibility even on a dark stage. Users can choose from three meter display modes to suit their playing style; in addition to the standard Regular mode, they can choose Strobe mode or Half-strobe mode in which the direction and speed of meter movement indicate the pitch change for easy visualization. In strobe mode the Pitchblack mini allows ultra-high-precision tuning with ±0.1 cent accuracy.

“Korg's Pitchblack pedal tuners have earned the trust of guitarists and bassists worldwide for their quality, design and durability,” stated Brian Piccolo, Brand Manager for Korg Guitar products. “When players are looking for a new pedal tuner for their board, compactness, light weight, and convenience are important, but often they're a trade-off with stability. Other small units tend to turn over more easily when placed on the floor, however, the Pitchblack mini addressed those concerns and is equipped with slide-type stabilizers on the underside of the body, eliminating this apprehension.”

Price: $69.99

Source Audio nicknamed the new ZIO pedal “the Better Box,” which is a fair summation of what this thing will do for your tone. Purists may rant endlessly about the virtues of plugging straight into an amp. But many legendary players understood that a little extra “hot” between guitar and amp can add up to magic. From Jimmy Page’s Echoplex preamp to Brian May’s Rangemaster to Angus Young’s Schaffer-Vega wireless system, a lot of signature sounds have been shaped with a little extra kick—and often from unexpected sources that are something other than simple boosts. Source Audio’s first all-analog pedal is more than a conventional booster, too. And, to some degree, it celebrates these alternate paths to boosting tone.
