I recently started playing and im looking to play everday now and its a pian since my cousin who always tunes it for me lives kinda far so now im gonna buy a tuner but unsure of which to buy. My price range is about 35-40$ max but i want a good enough one to get the job done. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

korg ca40

its pretty cheap, and is chromatic (can calibrate to any note not just thestandard tuning) and accurate.

I own this tuner too and it's great.

If you're gonna get a tuner, make sure to get a chromatic tuner. It's much more versatile. The Korg CA-40 is awesome. You can find it for less than $25, too!

Can't go wrong with Korg usually (in tuners and metronomes).
Keep it mind though, that if you always use tuners you will not likely develop the skill needed to tune it by ear.
I would always recommend tuning by ear first as well as you can, then tune up with the tuner if you have time.
After a couple of months you will see you don't even need the tuner anymore, and who knows, you might even get exact hearing.

That's a good idea. The CA-40 has a feature to play a reference tone to the note that you need. You can use this feature to tune by ear.

The Korg TM-40 also has a built in metronome, so if you have none yet that might be a good alternative, otherwise the CA-30 looks perfectly usable as well.

Thank you all for the help, I ordered the korg ca-30 this morning, wish I coulda got the 40 but they were out until the 18th

Yes the ga 30 is a great little tuner and works fine just dont drop it, they are not very durable when they hit hardwood floors.

I have a Seiko SAT500 I got for $25 new at GC. Very accurate, has cent numbers so you can really dial in exact tuning.

Othewise, I'd recommend the old standard Boss TU12, but that's around $70. They're perfect, accurate and guys that bought them in the 80s are still using theirs today, they last forever.

I use a GA-30 Korg. it works well enough for general tuning purposes. i dont really need anything special, so it suits me just fine.
