Top 10 Best Microphone Guitar Tuners

Editor's Choice - Our Favorite Microphone Guitar Tuner

1. GUITARX X7 Microphone 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.

2. Korg TM60CBK Microphone 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.

3. BOSS TU12EX Microphone Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"I'm loving it BOSS."

Thanks BOSS for a great tuner and thanks Amazon for the great price! Wow, didn't expect much but it sounds amazing. 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. The price, easy of use, and the built-in metronome snagged my attention.

4. Fishman ACC-TUN-FT1 Microphone Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

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

It handles all of the strings with no problem. This is way faster than individually checking each string. In short - this is a fantastic product, with only positive features. I bought this guitar tuner when I was trying to get back into learning guitar. I use the chromatic setting almost all the time.

5. Adam Levine MX090 Microphone Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"I am super happy with this product."

Battery life is fine and the product is feature laden with an easy to read display. Wow, didn't expect much but it sounds amazing. But hey, you are not supposed to step on your tuner. I've used this in all my practices and shows for 2 1/2 years and it's awesome! I bought the Adam Levine tuner 2 pack a few weeks ago.

6. musedo MUS-T-23 Microphone Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Other than that, I am pleased with it."

It handles all of the strings with no problem. If it's not in good solid contact it may not read at all. First set are spectacular and my son love them. It was easy to use and easy to know when each string was in tune. It does not seem to add any additional noise into the signal chain.

7. eNote BCG330516 Microphone Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"The tuning seems accurate."

It just might be more 'functional' than I actually need. If it's not in good solid contact it may not read at all. But hey, you are not supposed to step on your tuner. OVERALL: Great product and fast delivery. I was suggest this for beginning guitar players maybe or just to use at home.

8. Tascam TC-1SBK Microphone Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"This one gets the job done."

I just use the mode that makes most graphic sense to me. East to read digital readout and very user friendly. It worked fine, and the price was certainly right. I play a 7-string bass, tuned down to F#. I keep it always on and enjoy not having to unplug anymore to tune.

9. Peterson SP-1 BUNDLE Microphone Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"The sound quality was good as well."

Both arrived and are still a few weeks later in perfect working order. The only complaint I have is the low volume level. This product was received as expected and works as advertised. The display is bright, large and easy to read. The price, easy of use, and the built-in metronome snagged my attention.

Editor's Impressions

"Nice and small and work as they should."

These are typical of MATRIX quality but, the first ones I've owned of this style. Been playing a long time, but never bought a MATRIX tuner. These are the two features that my personal bias marks it down for. They lock well, look great and adjustments are great with the 19:1 turning ratio. Cheaper than buying a tuner and buffer separately.
