Top 10 Best Chromatic Guitar Tuners

Editor's Choice - Our Favorite Chromatic Guitar Tuner

1. Korg CA40 Chromatic Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"I an glad I purchased this."

Bass player has a problem with this product. I was astounded when I opened the box and saw how small the tuner was! In short - this is a fantastic product, with only positive features. They lock well, look great and adjustments are great with the 19:1 turning ratio. Not a big deal, unless you want to compare to other pedals.

2. Mugig T-1 Chromatic 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 Chromatic 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.

4. TC Electronic PolyTune Chromatic Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"I am super happy with this product."

Both arrived and are still a few weeks later in perfect working order. The tuner takes a bit of time to register the vibrations when you first turn it on. Works well with my piccolo and regular basses. It's winter and I'm inside all the time, but the solar power works just fine. I like that you can change up the function via the back panel.

5. Korg PITCHBLACK Chromatic Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Alt tuning, bass tuning, Korg."

But as long as it gives me A440 standard tuning and signal mute, it's good to go. I've had this pedal for 10 years still works great. This one has been delegated to my acoustic and works perfectly. The switch output goes directly to the Korg, and it's output to a delay and DI box. I use the chromatic setting almost all the time.

6. GUITARX X7 Chromatic 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.

7. Behringer TU300 Chromatic 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.

8. GUITARX x9 Chromatic 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.

9. BOSS TU-3S Chromatic 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. Tombo P-13E Chromatic Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"I'm loving it Tombo."

It picks up vibrations directly and not with a microphone. This is a great tuner, worth every penny! In short - this is a fantastic product, with only positive features. A friend was using mine and was constantly out of tune with the rest of the band. Tuning my guitars with this unit is fast, easy and very, very accurate.
