I posted about KyoAni mistaking a Korg tuner for a Yamaha yesterday. Truth is, they actually didn’t get it wrong.

This is what Azu-nyan uses:

[CoalGuys] K-ON! - 10 [A159E969].mkv - 00005


This is the Korg AW1 tuner:

And this is the Yamaha TD-30M tuner:

Obvious similarities is obvious. Well, it seems in Japan, the Korg AW1 is marketed under the Yamaha brand via an OEM agreement. Can’t blame me for not knowing, since the one I have experience with is a Korg. Still, that’ll teach me not to gleefully jump at opportunities to prove KyoAni wrong.

Its interesting to note however that the Korg AW1 has been replaced by the AW2, and the Yamaha model isn’t sold beyond Japan. I wonder how this will affect prices.
