Chromatic Tuner : What is it?

Chromatic Tuners

Chromatic tuners are musical tuning devices used for calibrating notes to their correct tune, allowing musicians to tune their guitar strings to any note other than their original pitch. They are mostly used for electric guitars in on-stage tuning where fast and quick responses are essential. They have large LCD display screens where pitch and tune information are shown. They can be handheld or set on the floor and controlled by the foot resting on the tuner’s pedal.
