If your a beginner or a very advanced musician, then you’ll agree with me when I say: Music is not possible today without a good Guitar Tuner… Or is it?
People who are recently attracted to string instruments are often attracted to acoustic and electric guitars. With that being said, traditional guitars tend to be left without tuning when experiencing playing for the first time.
Well, you might run into ONE big problem. Finding that “Best” guitar tuner isn’t always an easy job.
That is why I have created a list of Best Guitar Tuners 2017. There are a number of factors to be considered before purchasing an guitar tuner. After spending many hours of testing, talking to skilled guitar players and researching online to find these guitar tuners, I have made a short list of the top 10 tuners which you can try right now.
1. KLIQ UberTuner – Clip-On Tuner – Best Tuner For All Instruments
With technology improving so fast today there are excellent clip-on tuners out there on the market. But even some of the better ones can be hard to read and a bit slow. I know at some point you get tired of under performing clip-on tuners? So were we…Read More REVIEWS Here
We will be showing you the pros and cons the UberTuner that can be used for a guitar, bass, violin or ukulele with precise accuracy for all those instruments. It has a basic on/off button and comes with a back lit screen so it is easy to see in all lighting conditions.

2. Snark SN5X Clip-On Tuner – The latest turner from Snark
The Snark is considered one of the best clip-on tuners in the
industry and there is good reason for it. The KLIQ has a very large and bright display, however, if you are interested in a Snark, it definitely has an accurate reading display although a bit smaller than the KLIQ.
It is a very accurate tuner and is priced extremely fairly which makes it pretty desirable in my opinion. This great tuner can be used on violins or bass guitars so is great cause it can be easily passed between artists to have in a band setting environment.
The Snark SN-5 also has the ability to be a BPM indicator with a range from 40-250 BPM. You can turn it on with the button on the left hand side and it essentially visually indicates the desired BPM using a flash of an aspect of the display.
- Full Color Display
- Display rotates 360 degrees for easy viewing
- Features frequency range tailored to guitar and bass
- Tuner can be used on front of back of headstock
- This tuner can be used with Guitar, Bass & Violin
3. Korg GA1 Guitar and Bass Tuner – Best tuner for accuracy
The Korg GA1 is a great and standard plug in electronic tuner. It is easy to use, has solid accuracy and a simple but effective interface. Korg makes great key-boards, electronic instruments and musical equipment and makes everything with solid quality.
The tuner has a basic on off switch, a switch for picking the sound, the semi tone/how flat the sound is if you want to tune flat, and a switch for picking either guitar or bass. You plug your guitar in to one end of a patch chord and the tuner in the other, pretty basic but is awesomely accurate.
The one drawback, and it’s a pretty big drawback in my opinion, to the plug-in electronic guitar tuner is the fact that you need to unplug your guitar from your pedals, amp or anything else it is plugged into in order to tune. However, the next two tuner types, the guitar tuner pedal and the chromatic guitar tuner, you do not need to unplug anything!
- High-precision LCD needle-type meter for stable tuning
- Quinta Flat Tuning mode lets you tune 1–5 semitones flat
- Supports 7-string guitar tunings
- Sound Out can produce a reference tone from the internal speaker
4. D’Addario NS Micro Clip-On Tuner – Smallest on the market
I knew the tuner would be small, but this thing is tiny. My first thought was “I’m going to lose this”. You really can clip it on and not really see it from the front of the guitar. The black plastic clip is maybe an inch in length and less than a half inch wide
The new NS Micro Tuner is so small and lightweight, it is nearly invisible when clipped on the back of my Fender Strat’s headstock. Even when turned on and tucked out of view from everyone, its presence becomes immediately known by its brilliant color display.
Planet Waves improved the ratchet clip-on design so the NS Micro tuner now looks like part of the guitar and can stay attached when you place the instrument in a travel case.
This tuner is inexpensive and discreet, hardly visible when viewing the headstock from the front. Quick and easy to use. However, no too good on the low A and E strings, especially in a noisy environment.
I love this tuner because it produces very accurate results and doesn’t look ugly on the guitar because it isn’t noticeable!
- Highly precise clip-on tuner for a wide range of instruments including guitar, bass, ukulele, banjo, mandolin, and more
- Discrete, highly compact design hides behind the headstock and is small enough to leave on every instrument you own – get one for each case
- Extremely accurate chromatic tuning based on vibration, no sound or cable input required
- Adjustable ratchet mechanism and reversible screen allows for placement on front or back of headstock
- The D’Addario NS Micro tuner is the latest model of the Planet Waves NS Mini Headstock tuner
5. Tuner On Guitar – Most durable if dropped
A very good tuner. It is solidly built and can withstand drop, unlike other tuners I’ve had. The head can be rotated in many directions, which makes the tuner very flexible and it will easily attach to most stringed instruments. I am a ukulele player and author of ukulele books and I’ve been using the tuner in chromatic mode for my Ukes in D-tuning. The display has a good backlight which makes it easy to read. By comparison with similar tuners and microphone tuners (eg Clear Tune and others) the On Guitar Tuner appears very accurate.Read More REVIEWS Here
