    "The "new" Korg OT-120, a step backwards"

    The Korg OT-120 was a disappointment, after having enjoyed the old and reliable Korg AT-12 for many years. Unlike the AT-12, the OT-120 doesn't have a "on" light, so if you don't have the backlighted display turned on (which rapidly depletes the 2 small AAA batteries), it's easy to forget that the tuner is turned on. Nor is the OT-120's LCD display of the note you are playing (or having it sound) easy to read. The note letters on the display are much too small, probably reflecting Korg's desire to miniaturize the tuner. To my mind and for my purposes as a violinist and flutist, the older AT-12 was a much better piece of designing. It was made in Japan, whereas the OT-120 is (of course) of Chinese manufacture. I doubt the OT-120 will be as durable. The on-off switch, for example, has a cheap, abrasive feeling to it. Finally, I very much dislike the flashing red "flat" and "sharp" lights, one of either side of the VU meter needle. Isn't the deflection of the needle ENOUGH for people to SEE that a note is sharp or flat?! The constantly flashing red lights are a distraction and interfere with using the meter for intonation practice. All part of the society's desire for glitsy, flashing lights, the more the better. Despite these negative comments, I'll probably keep the OT-120, which I recently bought, but only because there doesn't seem to be a high quality tuner available today that has the features of the AT-12.
