Gotta get in tune? It's always wise to keep a guitar tuner on hand. Sweetwater carries several guitar tuners, so you'll get back in tune in no time!
Clip-on or headstock tuners are clipped to your guitar's headstock. Pitch is measured with a contact microphone that senses the wood's vibrations. You can usually rotate these fairly easily, allowing for practical and accessible viewing while you play. Another advantage of the clip-on guitar tuner is that it's convenient and small. Oh, and it can precisely tune in noisy situations without you having to plug in with a cable. Clip-on tuners are an ideal choice if you mainly play acoustic guitar.
Looking for something quick and easy to use? Pedal guitar tuners are great for live gigs. Simply add them to your existing pedal chain and you're good to go. These feature a jack input and jack output. Their main advantage is that you can tune-up instantly without having to plug into a different channel. Another nice feature for the stage is their bright display, designed to make them easy to read in the dark.
Portable tuners are wonderful if you're looking for something small and convenient to use. Many of these offer great features like tempered tuning and specific instrument presets.
If you mainly use rack gear, rackmount tuners are a great choice. These have all the sophisticated hardware and advanced features you need. They offer plenty of ins/outs, so you can incorporate them into very complex setups, making them ideal for use in the recording studio.
If flexibility is paramount, check out a polyphonic guitar tuner. Polyphonic tuners will let you tune all your open guitar strings in one simple strum. At a glance, you can spot where any tuning issues lie and tune only the problematic strings. This is a real time-saver when you're performing onstage.
If having to worry about yet another accessory is not your thing, we also stock soundhole guitar tuners, which basically allow you to permanently mount them inside your guitar's body. These are perfect for the forgetful among us!
For those of you who love a two-for-one kind of deal, look for guitar tuners that come with a metronome included. Tune your guitar and stay in sync at the same time!
