    Recommendations and differences between these TM-60C Korg tuners?

    1) The suffices here just denote a different color?
    Korg TM-60BK, Korg TM-60SV, and Korg TM-60WH
    So black, silver, and white respectively. They otherwise function identically?

    2) These would be suitable for a wide range of instruments?
    Euphonium is the prime one, but I'd also be using this for trumpet, flute, and piano

    3) What are some use cases for the microphone on cable/cord?
    I believe flute and other woodwind instruments would much more benefit from this. In an ensemble setting as well. Otherwise, it's not needed if I'm practicing at home by myself, and a quiet enough environment (I can hear my neighbors through the wall sometimes, and I think one of them plays guitar).


    Thanks ahead of time!

    I believe that is correct. However, I have noticed some inconsistency in features among groups like this, but those may have had to do with when the batch was produced vs. the last 2 letters in the model number.

    In my experience, YES.

    You have basically nailed it. At home I have found no use for the mic. But in any size ensemble it can really help the tuner show you what you are doing. When you stop playing, it will still piece up other players. The mic might also help if you practice in a very noisy environment.

    Like if you're sitting in the center of a community band and everyone is "tuning up" prior to practice.
