Top 10 Best Clip-on Guitar Tuners

Editor's Choice - Our Favorite Clip-on Guitar Tuner

1. Mugig T-1 Clip-on 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.

2. GUITARX x5 Clip-on 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.

3. GUITARX X7 Clip-on 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.

4. Peterson StroboClip Clip-on 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.

5. JJ JIN DI LONG EA011-B Clip-on 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.

6. Korg TM60CBK Clip-on Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"VERY EASY to use."

Not noticeable when playing gigs, though. Guitar needs to be in range, hard to get reading when wildly out of tune. Extremely accurate and versatile as both a tuner and metronome. I play a 7-string bass, tuned down to F#. Great used pedal, these things are workhorses.

7. NIUBIER 10766423 Clip-on 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.

8. Snark SN-5 Clip-on Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Tight and hold tune well."

Then there's the durability and low cost. I was astounded when I opened the box and saw how small the tuner was! Decent tuner, but the tuner on my Line 6 M5 is more accurate. To get around to the pitch, it is there NOW. Not a big deal, unless you want to compare to other pedals.

9. Donner EC1012 Clip-on 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.

10. So There CDT1 Clip-on Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"I'm loving it So There."

Not noticeable when playing gigs, though. Only annoyance is that in selecting keys they are flats. Extremely accurate and versatile as both a tuner and metronome. The display is bright, large and easy to read. It has other settings for Violin, Bass and Chromatic tuning as well.
