What is a tuner used for?
A tuner is a subsystem that receives radio frequency (RF) transmissions and converts the selected carrier frequency and its associated bandwidth into a fixed frequency that is suitable for further processing, usually because a lower frequency is used on the output.
Where do you put a tuner?
The tuner pedal should go first in the effect signal chain. This is to allow the cleanest signal into the pedal for viewing the most accurate tuning pitch. Positioning the tuner pedal after other effects (distortion, modulation, EQ pedals, etc) can distort the notes in the signal affecting pitch accuracy.
How do tuners work?
While most electronic tuners work by measuring the frequency of one string at a time, polyphonic tuners can measure all the string frequencies at once. On these devices, a player will strum all the open strings at once and, using polyphonic tuning, the tuner will identify the pitch of each individual string.
How does a clip on tuner work?
A clip-on tuner works in a slightly different way. It has a contact microphone built-in. This detects very low-level vibrations. The clip-on tuner is clipped on (bet you didn’t guess that…;-)) to a guitar headstock (electric or acoustic), and it detects string pitch from the vibrations through the guitar.
What does C mean on a tuner?
C = Chromatic. This will tune ALL notes in the music scale, chromatically. All fingered notes too. This means, every note in the chromatic scale: C, C #/D/b, D, D#/Eb, E, F, F#/Gb, G, G#/Ab, A, A#/Bb, B.

Where do you cut a guitar tuner?
To use a clip -on tuner, clip it to the headstock of your guitar, then start plucking a string. The tuner will detect the string you’re plucking and the tone it should be playing. On the tuner’s display, the readout will tell you whether to tune up or down to get your string to the right tone.
What mode should my guitar tuner be in?
If you are tuning your guitar to the standard EADGBE, you would use guitar mode. However if you wanted to tune your guitar to drop D DADGBE, you would use chromatic mode because the low D is not a standard tuning for the guitar. Another use for chromatic mode is to tell what notes you are playing on your guitar.
