Grammy®-Winning Classical Guitarist Sharon Isbin Relies On Korg AW-1 Micro Tuner For Ease Of Use And Accuracy [ Winter NAMM 2007 ]
NAMM SHOW, ANAHEIM, CA, January 18, 2007 — Acclaimed classical guitarist Sharon Isbin started touring at age 16, and in addition to multiple GRAMMY® award nominations, gained notice performing with New York’s Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as a diverse group of artists including Steve Vai, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Melissa Etheridge, and Latin jazz greats Larry Coryell and Laurindo Almeida. Isbin was also the first classical guitarist in 28 years to win a GRAMMY when she was honored for her CD Dreams of a World as Best Instrumental Soloist.
Because always having an instrument that is properly and accurately tuned is so critical to her performances, Isbin relies on the Korg AW-1 Micro Tuner. As she attests, “The AW-1’s ease of use and accuracy is just stunning. Whenever I’m rehearsing, performing or recording, the AW-1 is always clipped onto the headstock of my guitar. I never have to find a quiet environment to tune in, which saves me a great deal of time, especially when playing a session, where time is money. It’s the only tuner on the market that is so accurate and simple to use. It’s a lifesaver!”
