KORG SHIRABE WT-13
The Tuning Meter Exclusively for Japanese Musical Instruments.
Learning to tune Japanese instruments, such as the koto, shakuhachi and shamisen, takes years of hard training.
But with the aid of this unique tuning meter, even the novice can perform complex tuning adjustments.
It is also true that Japanese instruments tend to go out of tune more easily than western instruments during a performance, and must be returned by the performer.
This has caused too many aspiring musicians to give up before achieving mastery.
We have developed this tuning meter in the hope that it will contribute to the musical progress of those who love Japanese traditional music.
"Shirabe" means melody.
