Just when you thought you had seen every implementation of the guitar tuner along comes the Korg RimPitch… yes that is the real name, for Acoustic guitar.

To use the Rimpitch, you attach it to the lower side of the sound hole. This means that you’ll be able to check the tuning meter at the closest possible distance within your natural angle of vision. Since it’s attached in a position where only the performer can casually see it, it will be virtually unnoticed by the audience. This is the ideal tuner for people who don’t want to appear to be using a tuner during a live performance.

The Rimpitch detects the pitch by sensing the vibration of the guitar body. Since the design places the piezo pickup close to the body of the guitar, the pitch is detected quickly and accurately.
