This is my Favorite and the best-selling chromatic tuner in the USA since 1991. The new STX-1100 GUITAR TUNER grabs notes faster and holds notes longer. Features fast, automatic note sensing, rugged LED display, and broad chromatic range. New multi-color LED display is easier to read from a distance. Use the 1/4" input and output jacks or the built-in microphone. Handy clips hold the tuner on your music stand.

The Korg GT3 Tuner is a very compact digital tuner for guitar and bass. This model features full auto tuning, affordable pricing, easy-to-read LED meter. This is my second favorite GUITAR TUNER. It’s small, digital, accurate and very affordable! And that Works for me!

The Korg G-12, features a LCD display, a highly accurate VU-style meter and LED sharp/flat indicators. This combination allows for maximum versatility and visibility when tuning, even in low-light situations. One of the coolest things about the GT-12 is it also supports Open tuning, with 4 standard open tunings (E, A, D, G). This is Great GUITAR TUNER for those seeking a professional grade and versatile tuner.


Let’s say you have already tuned the top string (6th string).

Step 1:Press down on the 6th string at the 5th fret and you will get an A note. This note should correspond to an open 5th string as shown in the diagram.

Step 2:Strike the 6th string, 5th fret and an open 5th string. Both strings should be exactly the same. If not, the 5th string must be adjusted.

A good tip is to hold your finger on the fret and use your other hand to twist the string. Both at the same time. Do this until both strings sound identical.

These 2 easy steps can be repeated for the rest of the strings. With the 5th string, press down on the 5th string on the 5th fret and you will get a D. This note should correspond to an open 4th string. Therefore when you strike the 5th string, 5th fret and an open 4th string, both strings should sound exactly the same. If not, the 4th string must be adjusted.

The 3rd string however must be played at the 4th fret in order to equal an open 2nd string.

Many guitarists use this tuning technique when they suspect a string has gone out of tune.
