Top 10 Best Mini Guitar Tuners

Editor's Choice - Our Favorite Mini Guitar Tuner

1. GUITARX x9 Mini 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.

2. Aroma AT-07 Mini Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Really like the chromatic."

My faithful old Fender PT-10 finally gave it up. Wow, didn't expect much but it sounds amazing. In short - this is a fantastic product, with only positive features. The Aroma tunes faster than the Aroma and it's true bypass. I keep it always on and enjoy not having to unplug anymore to tune.

3. Snark S-1 Mini Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"One of the best I've come across yet!"

Tuning a guitars is not the easiest thing to do when you're a novice. I'm a pianist, and I'm very fussy about the piano that I play being in tune. The clip is strong and I like the brightness of the screen. It also has auto shut off in case you forget to turn it off after about 20 seconds. I bought this tuner for my acoustic guitar and I am very pleased with it.

4. ChordBuddy CB-BOX-WT Mini Guitar Tuner

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.

5. Clip on tuner B7 Mini Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Great for the price."

It just might be more 'functional' than I actually need. Low speed is the most visually intuitive for guitars, trumpets & etc. The shipping could have been cheaper though. It works every bit as well as the AW2G except missing a mic input. This has a LARGE display, bright red LED's, strobe and chromatic settings.

6. Eno 042728 Mini Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Great lil tuner!"

I supply these to all of our string players. While it did mute when the pedal was pressed, what good is that if I can't even tell. These are the two features that my personal bias marks it down for. I've used this in all my practices and shows for 2 1/2 years and it's awesome! The price, easy of use, and the built-in metronome snagged my attention.

7. Korg PB01MINI Mini Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"I play electric bass."

Not noticeable when playing gigs, though. I was astounded when I opened the box and saw how small the tuner was! Also serves to counterbalance an iPad if you are using one for a sheet music holder. I bought it because I'm sick of trying to tune with my acoustic tuner on my phone. Great used pedal, these things are workhorses.

8. Koogo MOD-1-MT Mini Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"A nice, basic tuner."

Then there's the durability and low cost. If you're a bass player in Eb, and you drop-D, the Koogo will read out DADG. Other than that, they're both about equivalent. Would recommend as a decent low cost tuner. Treble and bass knobs are great for shaping tone.

9. Jowoom T2 Mini Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Beautiful, need to buy more!"

After checking out other tuners, I am getting another one. It works well for tuning my guitars and basses. I purchased two of the Jowoom SN-2 Clip-on tuners. Would recommend as a decent low cost tuner. In high school band, we used versions that were boxy and heavy.

10. ChordBuddy CB-TP Mini Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"I'm happy with it."

Battery life is fine and the product is feature laden with an easy to read display. The ChordBuddy Guitar Tuner works great. It can be mic'd or use your instrument's vibration. I purchased this product a while ago and It still works great! Not a big deal, unless you want to compare to other pedals.
