Korg announces the Rimpitch, a new style of acoustic guitar tuner for players who want a tuner close by at all times, but in a more discrete format than a clip-on option. The Rimpitch is a unique tuner that attaches to the sound hole of an acoustic guitar. It provides an incredibly convenient viewing angle, since its tuning meter appears within the player’s natural line of sight when looking down at their guitar. Its compact size and slim profile in the sound hole offer a discrete tuning experience.
The other day I was talking to Paul Riario, Guitar World’s gear editor. The subject came around to why women don’t buy more gear. My reply to Riario was, “You’re right. I would buy a new pair of shoes before I picked up a new guitar accessory.”
