Top 10 Best Acoustic Guitar Tuners

Editor's Choice - Our Favorite Acoustic Guitar Tuner

1. GUITARX X7 Acoustic Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"I am satisfied with my purchase!"

Bass player has a problem with this product. When only one is showing, you are not quite in tune yet. I have only played guitar for about a year. A friend was using mine and was constantly out of tune with the rest of the band. It is nice and bright, and there are two arrows.

2. Roadie Automatic Guitar Tuner RD200 Acoustic Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Other than that, I am pleased with it."

My faithful old Fender PT-10 finally gave it up. East to read digital readout and very user friendly. However, now that I have learned how to work this tuner I wouldn't let it go. Makes iPhone tuning apps perform way better. I use alternate tunings almost exclusively, so this thing gets a lot of use.

3. JJ JIN DI LONG EA011-B Acoustic Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"This one gets the job done."

If you place it on your music sheet stand, that's great. The JJ JIN DI LONG Guitar Tuner works great. You can't view the JJ JIN DI LONG SN-4 at any kind of sharp angle. Purchased it for my son to use with his bass and he loves it. No other tuner is close to being as accurate as this one.

4. NIUBIER 10766423 Acoustic Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"I play guitar and love this product."

It can be as noisy as you can imagine around me and I can still tune accurately. When only one is showing, you are not quite in tune yet. In short - this is a fantastic product, with only positive features. I was almost at the point of sending it back. I use alternate tunings almost exclusively, so this thing gets a lot of use.

5. Nordic Essentials GuitarTuner_BlackWhite Acoustic Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"This one is perfect with all my guitars."

I've bought two other similar tuners before, none of them worked well. When only one is showing, you are not quite in tune yet. The only thing is that, there are already apps which will do the same job. Super fast response to guitar/bass signal. Cheaper than buying a tuner and buffer separately.

6. OriGlam 5-Band Acoustic Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Highly recommended."

Thus, in theory, you can watch your tuning as you play. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for this exact solution. Multi purpose as it works on my hammered dulcimer, guitar, mandolin and mt dulcimer. I was almost at the point of sending it back. When I saw the OriGlam my curiosity was piqued.

7. Donner EC1012 Acoustic Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"I play electric bass."

This tuner worked as good as any at a lower price than many I have seen and used. I've had this pedal for 10 years still works great. You can't view the Donner SN-4 at any kind of sharp angle. What a great company to do business with! The clip-on chromatic tuner was very easy to use.

8. Tanbi Music Tan-4005 Acoustic Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"That works fine for me."

Battery life is fine and the product is feature laden with an easy to read display. Great clip on tuner priced right equals a great value. It worked fine, and the price was certainly right. I was almost at the point of sending it back. Tuning my guitars with this unit is fast, easy and very, very accurate.

9. ChordBuddy CB-BOX-WT Acoustic Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Save your money and get this one!"

This is the only chromatic tuner I have used, but I'm very happy with it. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for this exact solution. The clip is strong and I like the brightness of the screen. I've used this in all my practices and shows for 2 1/2 years and it's awesome! It has other settings for Violin, Bass and Chromatic tuning as well.

10. lotmusic A9163 Acoustic Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Really like the chromatic."

I've bought two other similar tuners before, none of them worked well. Completely foolproof, you never have to worry about leaving your clip-on at home. My high school daughter uses this all the time at home for trumpet practice. I got the lotmusic to add to my simple pedal board. Outstanding device for the frequent tuning need.
