Top 10 Best Bass Guitar Tuners

Editor's Choice - Our Favorite Bass Guitar Tuner

1. Korg GA1 Bass Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Awesome tuner."

It has a soft touch switch, so there's no noise when turning it on or off. When only one is showing, you are not quite in tune yet. This product was received as expected and works as advertised. I would recommend this for any musician, especially good for guitar. I hope Korg keep making this one, it's a really good tuner!

2. Mugig T-1 Bass Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Fits great with my tuner."

I just use the mode that makes most graphic sense to me. While it did mute when the pedal was pressed, what good is that if I can't even tell. First set are spectacular and my son love them. I purchased this product a while ago and It still works great! When I saw the Mugig my curiosity was piqued.

3. GUITARX x5 Bass Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Highly recommended."

This was well worth the price and the perfect thing for quick and easy tuning. This is way faster than individually checking each string. I purchased two of the GUITARX SN-2 Clip-on tuners. It's winter and I'm inside all the time, but the solar power works just fine. This has a LARGE display, bright red LED's, strobe and chromatic settings.

"This is a good choice for this price."

I bought this to replace a previous tuner pedal that died. I've had this pedal for 10 years still works great. These are the two features that my personal bias marks it down for. I would recommend this for any musician, especially good for guitar. It is nice and bright, and there are two arrows.

5. GUITARX X7 Bass 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.

6. Behringer TU300 Bass Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"The sound quality was good as well."

The display is easy to read, even from across the stage. East to read digital readout and very user friendly. You can't view the Behringer SN-4 at any kind of sharp angle. The display is bright, large and easy to read. I was suggest this for beginning guitar players maybe or just to use at home.

7. GUITARX x9 Bass Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"It does everything they say it will."

Simply reach in, turn it on, and tune away. While it did mute when the pedal was pressed, what good is that if I can't even tell. It can be mic'd or use your instrument's vibration. To get around to the pitch, it is there NOW. It does what it suppose to and works to perfection with ease.

8. Roadie Automatic Guitar Tuner RD200 Bass 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.

9. BOSS TU-3S Bass Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Excellent tuner for bass guitars."

Already have one, but I purchased a second for a friend. This is a great tuner, especially for the money. Decent tuner, but the tuner on my Line 6 M5 is more accurate. I use this clip to clip onto the tuning pegs of my hammered dulcimer. UPDATE: Sent it back in exchange for another.

10. Peterson StroboClip Bass Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Nice replacement tuners."

This tuner worked as good as any at a lower price than many I have seen and used. This is a great tuner, worth every penny! I'd been using Guitar Tuna and I think this gives better tuning. It works every bit as well as the AW2G except missing a mic input. I bought the Peterson tuner 2 pack a few weeks ago.
