Hey all! I've been playing guitar for a few weeks and I noticed that I probably might sound better if my guitar didn't sound like a cat was screeching every time I picked it up, lol.

I never had an electric tuner before so does anyone have any recommendations for a really solid one? My price range is from 10 to 50 dollarsish and I would love it to be durable, can tune both acoustic and electric, and if it can handle different tunings such as D, A, D, F♯, B, D or any low tunings. Something that'll last me for a while is what I'm looking for.


I've been looking around for different tuners but I'm really curious as to what the experienced players would say is a good tuner to buy. So anyone have any recommendations for a rookie like me? Anyone have tuners that they absolutely love?

I use a Boss TU-3 Chromatic Tuner it does everything and can even cut your line so you can tune silently live on stage and has a bright led display so its easy to read to. When i opened up for the Goo Goo Dolls they also used this tuners live so that is saying something. I got mine for $55 a little out of your range but its a Boss so it is gonna last me a lifetime.

I don't really think that's the best tuner for him ATM.
considering he has only been playing for a few weeks i highly doubt he's
going to be playing any shows anytime soon.
I would recommend a korg GA-30 tuner i believe it's called
it tunes electric ,acoustic guitar and even bass.
i would also recommend the ones with the built-in metronome
for practicing staying on time as it will help you progress even faster.
good luck with guitar and don't give up.


EDIT: this is a link to the one with a metronome.http://www.guitarcenter.com/Korg-TM-40-Digital-Tuner-Metronome-103240545-i1125538.gc

That a good point aero put if he is truely commited then it will save him money in the long run buying multiple tuner. I say if you can't find a deal on the Boss definetly don't get it (in music never pay full price for anything) and get the GA 30 ft Metronome which is a great idea to kill two birds with one stone.

This is a good tuner, it works by measuring the vibrations at the headstock and is very precise. You dont need to have your guitar plugged in which is good.

Just my 2¢ Korg makes great tuners CA-30 isn't bad.

IMHO the CA-40 a bit better considering it actually cost less and has an output jack
