10 Best guitar tuners (2018 reviews) – guitarfella.com la gas prices


So, clip-on tuners are considered highly practical since they are used by simply being attached onto the headstock. They are small, light, but are considered as the least accurate option by some gear-heads. They are also the most affordable, lightest, and perhaps the most practical option since clip-ons are easy to use even during shows.

Standard tuners are accurate, inexpensive, durable and easy to use. They come with a size of an average smartphone – except double thickness – and their only shortcoming is that they’re trickier for use during live shows. You either have to unplug your guitar and plug it into the tuner, or use two cables to have the tuner connected at all times, but even then the device is simply designed to be handheld during the tuning process, which is not all that practical.

The device utilizes a high sensitivity vibration sensor mixed with a nifty little stay-put clip, and an accurate frequency range specifically crafted for guitar and bass frequencies. The device’s display can rotate 360 degrees, which allows very easy viewing, while the on-board tap tempo metronome turns this fella into a must-have practice gizmo. Pitch calibration feature is also there, covering the range between 415 and 466 Hz.

Sporting those old-school Buck Rogers looks, the SN-1 features a full color display, which increases ease of use and visibility – a particularly handy feature for live use, yes. A transpose feature is also included in the mix, meaning that you can tune even with a capo. The product sports a light weight of 0.2 ounces and a total size of 6 x 4 x 4 inches. Finally, let’s put out the good stuff, bad stuff list.

Up next are the good ole standard handheld tuners. Many folks out there prefer to simply tune up before the show, let it rip, maybe tune up during breaks (if there are breaks), and let it rip once again. With that in mind, we have a selection of another four champions from the new domain for you, check ’em out!

What makes Korg TM50 an obvious best sellers is the fact that the manufacturer managed to combine ALL the features the vast majority of guitar players will ever need from a tuner AND a metronome into a single convenient and affordable package.

When it comes to the tuner, you can manually calibrate the exact notes you’re looking to hit. Additionally, the Sound Back Feature allows you to train your pitch as you tune, by detecting the pitch of the sound input and sounding off the closest reference note from the speaker. Finally, the mix also includes a mic so you can tune from a distance by just playing the tone. This is not the most reliable method, but it certainly is the quickest one.

Up next, a 3 in 1 device known as the MetroPitch by KLIQ. In a single package, you will get a tuner, a metronome, and a tone generator. The tuner has a very wide range of A0 to C8, and stands out as possibly the most versatile device on the list. Some of the cool features included in the mix are transposition adjustments, a variety of tuning modes, and pitch calibration.

Unlike many other devices, this fella rocks a large control knob in the frontal part, allowing the player to make very precise adjustments. Overall, when all this versatility, accuracy and cheap price tag are taken into consideration, this is certainly one of the best guitar tuners out there.

In the metronome regime, the device’s Jog Dial once again comes in very handy and allows very precise adjustments. There’s a tap tempo feature inside as well, allowing the user to dial in any value from 30 to 250 BPM. Note that the item comes with a 3-year guarantee and is available in two color patterns – elegant black and sexy red.
