Top 10 Best Simple Guitar Tuners

Editor's Choice - Our Favorite Simple Guitar Tuner

1. GUITARX x9 Simple 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. TC Electronic POLYTUNE3 Simple Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"This one is perfect with all my guitars."

I've bought two other similar tuners before, none of them worked well. The tuner takes a bit of time to register the vibrations when you first turn it on. First set are spectacular and my son love them. I play a 7-string bass, tuned down to F#. Not that TC Electronics are bad - I have like four of them.

3. Performance Plus GP6P Simple Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Not affected by background noise."

My 12 year old grand daughter lost the booklet when moving one place to another. I especially like the fact that it can be set to tune through vibration only. I purchased two of the Performance Plus SN-2 Clip-on tuners. Purchased it for my son to use with his bass and he loves it. This has a LARGE display, bright red LED's, strobe and chromatic settings.

4. 2Eleven Music Devil Horn Simple Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Liked product."

It picks up vibrations directly and not with a microphone. Basically everything you want and expect out of a tuning pedal at an amazing price. The shipping could have been cheaper though. I purchased this product a while ago and It still works great! The clip-on chromatic tuner was very easy to use.

5. LEKATO 3 in 1 Multi Simple Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"It's perfect for anyone."

However, I had to give the tuner a try as well. For this alone, it's an improvement over the TU-2. But hey, you are not supposed to step on your tuner. Clips rite on, easy to use, nice and bright ! Tuning my guitars with this unit is fast, easy and very, very accurate.

6. Korg PC2 Simple Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Save your money and get this one!"

I just use the mode that makes most graphic sense to me. The Korg Guitar Tuner works great. Very pleased with features, function, and reliability of this item. It's winter and I'm inside all the time, but the solar power works just fine. For convenience and simplicity it can't be beat.

7. 2Eleven Music Hang Loose Simple Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"This is a good choice for this price."

But as long as it gives me A440 standard tuning and signal mute, it's good to go. Been playing a long time, but never bought a 2Eleven Music tuner. In short - this is a fantastic product, with only positive features. Would recommend as a decent low cost tuner. It does what it suppose to and works to perfection with ease.

8. Korg AW-LT100G Simple Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"The sound quality was good as well."

But as long as it gives me A440 standard tuning and signal mute, it's good to go. This one I just plug into it, leaving it on my knee, and tune. The only thing is that, there are already apps which will do the same job. It's winter and I'm inside all the time, but the solar power works just fine. Outstanding device for the frequent tuning need.

9. EVH 5550121466 Simple Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"These work great!"

Thus, in theory, you can watch your tuning as you play. East to read digital readout and very user friendly. I like it better than other tuners though. I use this clip to clip onto the tuning pegs of my hammered dulcimer. Treble and bass knobs are great for shaping tone.

10. LEKATO 3 in 1 Simple Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"LEKATO Tuners are my go to."

If you place it on your music sheet stand, that's great. LEKATO products have proven solid & dependable in my experience. Not only has playing become more inspiring, my recordings sound more professional. Super fast response to guitar/bass signal. Tuning my guitars with this unit is fast, easy and very, very accurate.
