An essential piece of equipment for every guitarist is a guitar tuner. It is important for guitarists and musicians alike that their instruments should be in perfect pitch. A guitar that is tuned with precision and a good musician makes beautiful music together. All tuners will tune the guitar equally well but the best guitar tuners lend themselves well to certain situations.

The Boss Chromatic Tuner and Metronome is one of the best guitar tuners because it works well with all types of guitars, from acoustic to electric to bass. This guitar tuner can handle everything even a 7-string guitar and a 5-string bass.

Some guitar tuners like the Korg TM 40’s have additional features to aid the musician but accomplished guitar players prefer the simple ones that perform the most basic function and that is giving the guitar a perfect pitch. The best guitar tuners for them are the ones that are easy to use and convenient to carry. Some of them pick the Korg GA40 as the best guitar tuner because of its efficiency in getting the job done.

The best guitar tuner can also be distinguished through the venues that the guitarist plays. It is wise to familiarize yourself with the venue and possible scenarios when playing before picking a guitar tuner. Guitarists have a hard time deciding which is the best guitar tuner because there are different scenarios that call for different types of tuners.

A performing artist would either consider a clip-on tuner or a pedal tuner as the best guitar tuner. The clip on tuner allows you to tune between songs easily, while the pedal tuner makes it possible for you to tune silently on stage.

If you happen to be recording in a studio, then the best guitar tuner to use is the Digital Rackmount tuner. This device gives sound precision to either an acoustic or bass guitar.

The best guitar tuner should be applicable to the situation you are in, and most of all, it should be able to give your guitar the perfect pitch for an unforgettable performance.
