Chromatic Tuner Guide

We rely on an electronic chromatic tuner to set the temperament in our Tune a Piano Yourself Tuning Tutorial. Chromatic tuners are a topic to themselves. They include everything from small hand-held models to dedicated piano tuning consoles and simple tuning apps to full software packages. The display styles vary as well, from needles to strobes to specialized displays for piano technicians.

There's too much, in fact, to go into within our piano tuning tutorial. We have constructed a separate site dedicated to the chromatic tuner. Check out our Chromatic Tuner Guide at
