Top 10 Best Electric Guitar Tuners

Editor's Choice - Our Favorite Electric Guitar Tuner

1. Roadie Automatic Guitar Tuner RD200 Electric 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 Electric 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. JJ JIN DI LONG EA011-B Electric 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 Electric 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.

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.

"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.

"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.

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.

9. Aroma AT-103 Electric 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.

10. Crescendo ZenStrobe Electric Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Get one and you'll use it constantly!"

I'd totally recommend this to anyone needing a tuner. While it did mute when the pedal was pressed, what good is that if I can't even tell. Crescendo are the best for my Gretsch always stays in tune. Purchased it for my son to use with his bass and he loves it. It is also very stable, not bouncing around.
