This new flagship clip-on tuner from Korg comes in a sleek and compact form factor, and features a uniquely designed clip that provides a firm grip without damaging your precious instrument.

One of the main issues that guitarists have with tuners is visibility. Korg addresses this problem with a new type of display that provides improved brightness and contrast from any viewing angle. The display is also designed to work both in-doors and outdoors, be it on a dark stage or under a bright noon sky. This means that you won't have to second guess your tuning when you're performing, or preparing to perform.
The improved LCD also feature a visual interface that is easy to follow and understand. The same goes with the front panel buttons, which gives you access to all the features and parameters.

Other features include auto power-off, memory backup and calibration for all concert pitches.
Finally, this clip-on tuner folds up neatly into a compact shape that will easily feet inside gig bag and hardcase compartments. Durability was also addressed, each PitchHawk is manufactured to withstand regular use. The PitchHawk (AW-3) is the third generation upgrade of the Korg AW-1, which was the first clip-type tuner released back in 2004.
