Top 10 Best Standard Guitar Tuners

Editor's Choice - Our Favorite Standard Guitar Tuner

1. BOSS TU-3S Standard Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Excellent tuner for bass guitars."

Already have one, but I purchased a second for a friend. This is a great tuner, especially for the money. Decent tuner, but the tuner on my Line 6 M5 is more accurate. I use this clip to clip onto the tuning pegs of my hammered dulcimer. UPDATE: Sent it back in exchange for another.

2. Roadie Automatic Guitar Tuner RD100 Standard 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. OriGlam 5-Band Standard Guitar Tuner

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.

4. ChordBuddy CB-BOX-WT Standard 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. 2Eleven Music Devil Horn Standard 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.

6. ChordBuddy CB-TP Standard 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.

7. DigiTech HT-6 Standard Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Great lil tuner!"

It would have been nice if this came with a short cable what you need. So bright and clear you don't have any trouble seeing it, and very fast response! The clip is strong and I like the brightness of the screen. What a great company to do business with! I hope DigiTech keep making this one, it's a really good tuner!

8. 2Eleven Music Hang Loose Standard 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.

9. Deadbeat Sound Chromatic Pedal Standard Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"Well done Deadbeat Sound!"

Not noticeable when playing gigs, though. Only annoyance is that in selecting keys they are flats. Other than that, they're both about equivalent. Has chromatic, bass, violin, guitar, ukulele tuning built in. I use alternate tunings almost exclusively, so this thing gets a lot of use.

Overall Score
3.9

10. Tbest F-5T Standard Guitar Tuner

Editor's Impressions

"I play guitar and love this product."

I've only used it a couple times, and I have to say I am impressed! If you're a bass player in Eb, and you drop-D, the Tbest will read out DADG. In short - this is a fantastic product, with only positive features. Super fast response to guitar/bass signal. The entire thing is made of metal, so it feels very substantial as well.
