Gear Tuning Devices There’s nothing that sounds quite as bad as an out of tune stringed instrument, especially a guitar. Even if just one string is out by a little bit, it can throw off your entire sound. Fortunately, it’s pretty easy to tune. Here are the most common devices used: Electric Pitch Tuner Plug your electric guitar directly into one of these for a very accurate tune. These come in handy when trying to tune in a loud place because it does not pick up outside sound when plugged in. This specific model also functions as a metronome and can be used for acoustic guitars as well because it has an external speaker. Battery operated and can be found online or at your local m usic store/outlet. For further directions, Electric Vibration Tuner don’t forget to read By simply securing it onto the head of your guitar and pressing the the i nstruction manual power button, vibration tuners are not only the most accurate that c omes with the way to tune but also incredibly convenient and ergonomic. Rather tuner you choose! than tuning by pitch, vibrations are recognized by the tuner and it is therefore unaffected by outside noise. Also battery operated and can be found online or at the store. Built-‐in Electric Tuner A lot of guitars are available with built-‐in tuners. This makes your life that much more convenient because it alleviates the need to carry an external tuner to p ractices and gigs (just make sure you have a live battery loaded and a spare just in case!). They generally operate in connection with the same pickup system that’s used to amplify an acoustic guitar. You’ll be able to control your volume, tone and even certain sound effects. If your guitar doesn’t originally come with a built-‐in tuner and/or pickup, you can have one installed at a local m usic shop. A much cheaper and easier option is to go with an external vibration tuner like the one above. Apps There are many tuning applications available for smart phones and computers. The free apps typically allow you to play each string’s pitch, and from there you tune by ear. If you spend a few bucks, you can get one that functions similar to an electric-‐ pitch tuner, but won’t be as accurate as the real thing (until they make it so you can plug your guitar into your phone!).
