Top 10 Best Small Guitar Tuners

Editor's Choice - Our Favorite Small Guitar Tuner

1. Aroma AT-07 Small 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.

Editor's Impressions

"It's accurate and durable!"

Easy to see, and very accurate, it is always there. East to read digital readout and very user friendly. It is more sensitive/accurate than most tuner pedals. Would recommend as a decent low cost tuner. I was suggest this for beginning guitar players maybe or just to use at home.

3. ChromaCast CC-440-DBL Small Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Nice replacement tuners."

It handles all of the strings with no problem. I've used a classic ChromaCast Tuner since the 90s. It is only necessary to know that the standard 4-string bass tuning is E A D G. I use this clip to clip onto the tuning pegs of my hammered dulcimer. Not a big deal, unless you want to compare to other pedals.

4. Clip on tuner B7 Small 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.

5. LEKATO 3 in 1 Multi Small 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. Cling On Tuner MS1R Small Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Cling On Tuner is usually good quality product."

My 12 year old grand daughter lost the booklet when moving one place to another. Great clip on tuner priced right equals a great value. This product was received as expected and works as advertised. A friend was using mine and was constantly out of tune with the rest of the band. No other tuner is close to being as accurate as this one.

7. ChromaCast CC-440-SGR Small Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"So, I went tuner shopping."

Battery life is fine and the product is feature laden with an easy to read display. I especially like the fact that it can be set to tune through vibration only. I found this easy to use, without having to consult the instructions. I got the ChromaCast to add to my simple pedal board. This has a LARGE display, bright red LED's, strobe and chromatic settings.

8. ChromaCast CC-440-VC Small Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"VERY EASY to use."

You wont have that size screwdriver at a gig, so use a coin. Great clip on tuner priced right equals a great value. I purchased two of the ChromaCast SN-2 Clip-on tuners. I bought it because I'm sick of trying to tune with my acoustic tuner on my phone. I have a tuning hammer and some mutes and know enough to get myself in trouble.

9. TC Electronic PolyTune 2 Noir Small Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"TC Electronic Tuners are my go to."

Overall, the product works great and does what it advertises! A must have until your ear can do the trick! It did not work well the first time I put in the battery. Would recommend as a decent low cost tuner. Not a big deal, unless you want to compare to other pedals.

10. ChromaCast CC-440-SOR-KIT-1 Small Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Recommended."

I'd totally recommend this to anyone needing a tuner. ChromaCast products have proven solid & dependable in my experience. The only thing is that, there are already apps which will do the same job. Purchased it for my son to use with his bass and he loves it. The clip-on chromatic tuner was very easy to use.
