Top 10 Best Banjo Guitar Tuners

Editor's Choice - Our Favorite Banjo Guitar Tuner

1. Roadie Automatic Guitar Tuner RD200 Banjo 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.

2. Roadie Automatic Guitar Tuner RD100 Banjo Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Liked product."

It would have been nice if this came with a short cable what you need. The tuner takes a bit of time to register the vibrations when you first turn it on. But hey, you are not supposed to step on your tuner. I play a 7-string bass, tuned down to F#. It is nice and bright, and there are two arrows.

3. NIUBIER 10766423 Banjo 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.

4. Nordic Essentials GuitarTuner_BlackWhite Banjo 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.

5. Donner EC1012 Banjo 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.

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.

7. Aroma AT-103 Banjo Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"I would recommend this tuner to anyone."

It handles all of the strings with no problem. This is a great tuner, especially for the money. Pedal sizing is very similar to every Aroma or MXR full-sized pedal you've ever used. The display is bright, large and easy to read. Not that Aromas are bad - I have like four of them.

8. D'Addario Accessories PW-CT-16 Banjo Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"I would recommend this tuner to anyone."

Once I had that, it was just a matter of fine tuning 'till it was in tune. So bright and clear you don't have any trouble seeing it, and very fast response! Com sent me a replacement overnight, before I had even returned the original. It works every bit as well as the AW2G except missing a mic input. It does not seem to add any additional noise into the signal chain.

9. Top Fuel Guitar FBA_TFG-326 Banjo Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"I use this set-up my guitar and bass."

After checking out other tuners, I am getting another one. This is a great tuner, especially for the money. I found this easy to use, without having to consult the instructions. Unlike many other tuners that use expensive lithium batteries, it uses AAA. I use alternate tunings almost exclusively, so this thing gets a lot of use.

10. Roadie RD250 Banjo Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Always a nice bonus in my book."

You wont have that size screwdriver at a gig, so use a coin. The Roadie Guitar Tuner works great. I've used it for several gigs and had no problems. They lock well, look great and adjustments are great with the 19:1 turning ratio. Great used pedal, these things are workhorses.
