The Easiest Guitar Tuner in the World

Illustration for article titled The Easiest Guitar Tuner in the World

Guitar tuners aren't always the simplest gadgets in the world, even if they're mostly charged with an impossibly simple task. In fact, advanced features on more expensive tuners might confuse someone who doesn't know what they're doing. This one, though, opts for simple and cheap. There's something to be said for that.


Korg's new plastic guitar tuners clip right onto the headstock of your guitar, bass, or ukelele(!). They are designed to look exactly like the headstock of the instrument you're using so you can't be remotely confused about which string to adjust in what direction. Now, of course, these tuners are only going to work if you're using standard tuning, but for someone who wants something simple, cheap, and lightweight, these guys do the job for just twenty bucks.

Not buying another Korg tuner. The one I had never really worked well, then shorted out internally a few months after I bought it. I bit the bullet and bought a Boss chromatic tuner I've had for years now. I put it right up there with my trusty old DeWalt cordless drill/driver as some of the best money I've spent on a tool.
