Korg GA-20 Guitar Tuner question

From: annamill

I'm not sure if this was a music question or not and it's a novice, and probably, silly question. I have been looking for an instruction manual online but couldn't find one, free.

My question is, when "tuning down to E-flat" how would I use this tuner. There is a flat button and each time I depress this button a little flat picture appears, up to 4 flats. I haven't a clue what to do with these cute little flat pictures. Can anyone help?

Thank you for your help.

I got this from the Korg website, it's for the GA30 but'll probably work - they don't change the products that much. Hope it helps

Flat tuning
You can use Meter mode or Sound mode to tune to a pitch that is lowered by
15 semitones (


♭ ♭ ♭ ♭ ♭
) for the specified note.
1. As described in "Meter mode" or "Sound mode," make the note you wish
to flatten by 15 semitones appear in the display.
2. Press the [FLAT] switch to select the number of semitones that you wish
to lower the selected note.
The display will indicate


♭ ♭ ♭ ♭ ♭ (15 semitones). (This setting is not
remembered when you turn the power off.)
3. Tune your instrument.

I have a CA -30, and here's how mine works:

the tuner is about 2.5 inches by 4 by 1/2

On the two longer edges which are only 1/2 inch thick, there is a little place that says "Push." Put your thumb on one and your index finger on the other. Squeeze the little plastic bars toward one another, and the back will loosen.

It helps to have strong hands.

All the tuners I've used have a chromatic setting, and that is the one I would always use for any instrument.
