Summer NAMM 2018: New volca case, tuner and contact mic from Korg

Korg has unveiled a number of new MI accessories at this year’s Summer NAMM 2018, including a semi-hard case for housing up to 4 volca synths, a new Pitchclip tuner, and the CM-300 contact mic for clip-type tuners.

Volca semi-hard case

This semi-hard case houses up to 4 volcas, so you can unleash your creativity wherever you go. Made of EVA (high-density polyethylene resin), the interior features 4 volca-sized padded spaces and enough extra space to carry all the necessary AC adapters and cables.

SSP £TBC inc VAT. Availability: Sept 2018

Pitchclip 2 Clip-On Tuner

An evolution of Korg’s popular Pitchclip tuner, the Pitchclip 2 is an all-new clip-on tuner with a compact body and simple operation allows you to tune quickly and easily. Simply attach it to the headstock of your instrument, turn on the switch, then just play a string and the tuner shows the exact amount of pitch difference.

The Pitchclip 2 is designed from the players point of view and features high tuning precision with excellent visibility, an enhanced clip for even better holding power, and a reverse display function that will be appreciated by left-handed users.

£13.00/€15.00 inc VAT. Availability: July 2018

CM-300 Contact Microphone

The CM-300 is a clip-type contact microphone that attaches directly to your instrument. It uses a piezo element that sends the vibrations of your instrument directly to your tuner. Even when you’re in an environment with high ambient sound, such as a large ensemble, this mic allows high-precision tuning.

The shape of the cable’s strain relief where it joins the unit has been modified for increased durability in comparison to the previous model, and sound transmission performance has been further improved.

SSP £10.00/€12.00 inc VAT. Availability: Summer 2018
