An electronic guitar tuner is the most popular and commonly used device for tuning an electric or acoustic guitar.
There are hundreds of different models of guitar tuners available these days and
prices vary depending on size and features -
The guitarist is spoilt for choice and it's worth checking out the specifications
of a few products before deciding on the guitar tuner that's right for you. Most
guitar tuners are capable of tuning electric and acoustic guitars and many will tune
various other stringed instruments such as the bass guitar, violin or ukulele. Some
tuners feature a built-
There are two main types of guitar tuner -
Most guitar tuners have an input socket for a lead from your electric guitar and
If your tuner has two sockets it's simply a case of plugging your electric guitar
lead into the tuner's input socket and then running another jack lead from the output
socket of the tuner into your amplifier -
When your guitar lead is plugged into your tuner a signal is sent from the guitar to the tuner, allowing it to determine to which degree each string is in or out of tune.
Getting in tune with the guitar tuner just couldn't be easier -
When you play a string your tuner will recognise its pitch and the device's LED indicators
Some guitar tuners have a selector which lets you choose the specific note in advance
for the string you want to tune -
The former option is sometimes preferable as cheaper tuners without this feature
sometimes struggle to identify the note you are seeking. Also if you've just put
a new string on your guitar it can be difficult for some guitar tuners to identity
the note you require as the string is a long way distant from the correct range -
Guitar tuners are very precise these days and some have several flat and sharp indicators which will represent up to two semi tones away from the tuned note.
If the instument tuner you are interested in is chromatic it means it will be able to tune to any note including sharps or flats so it's tuning range will be almost as wide as the notes on a piano. This type of guitar tuner will be able to tune various other stringed instruments such as the banjo, ukulele, mandolin, violin and cello. A guitar tuner which is tailored specifically for the guitar will only be able to to tune to the notes E,A,D,G,B and E.
A guitar tuner is very easy to operate and you'll find your way around it in no time
at all -
There really isn't that much difference between an analogue and a digital guitar
Really it just comes down to a matter of preference -
Some believe an analogue guitar tuner is more accurate because the needle is not
limited to a specific number of positions -
A digital guitar tuner on the other hand has a pre-

A very popular type of guitar tuner is the clip on version. Not only are they very appealing because your tuner is very close to hand, but they offer a clever way of tuning your acoustic or electric guitar, with the tuner picking up the vibrations when you play the string on your instrument you wish to tune.
A clip on guitar tuner normally attaches to the end of the guitar's neck beside the machine heads. Because this type of guitar tuner is responding to vibrations it is able to completely isolate surrounding noise.
The foot pedal guitar tuner is another innovation which is popular with some guitarists.
It is similar in appearance to other guitar effects pedals and has a stomp button
which is pressed with the foot and features a large LCD screen. If you’re into hands
free tuning a foot pedal guitar tuner is an excellent option -
