Tune Up and Turn Up

Buying Guide: Tuners

You can add layer upon layer of effects to your signal chain, but if your guitar isn't in tune, your audience will be cringing. Keeping in tune is necessary to play with other pitched instruments -- or to play more than one note on your own guitar! Though many players can rely on their ear to adjust their strings' pitches to the correct tuning, in certain situations it's best to trust an electronic tuner.

Whether you're touring or just practicing at home, the right tuner will make this important ritual a breeze. Our Guitar Tuners Buying Guide is filled with the best and most trusted tuners available. Whether you need chromatic, polychromatic, or just a simple six-note guitar tuner, zZounds has exactly what's needed to get the job done.

Clip-on Tuners
For a simple and portable tuner, these clip-ons are hard to beat. They're great for tuning while playing live since they only respond to the vibration of your instrument, ignoring the ambient noise from other instruments that usually decreases the accuracy of a microphone-based tuner. Since they require no plugging in, you can clip these tuners onto a variety of acoustic instruments for easy and accurate tuning.

Compact Tuners
Do you play an acoustic guitar? Not a big fan of playing out in public? A compact tuner is one of the most affordable and convenient ways to stay in tune, with super-long battery life. Most compact tuners feature a built-in microphone -- essential for tuning acoustic instruments. Many of these compact tuners include chromatic tuning and on-board metronomes, making them a practice-room and accessory bag must-have.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
