Online Banjo Tuner

For bluegrass, the 5 string banjo is typically tuned to open G - gDGBD, but there are some songs that require other tunings. Open D, drop C, double C, or sawmill are some of the different tuning options you may encounter.

How it works?

1. Select your instrument and press 'Start Tuning' button.
2. When prompted, allow your browser to use the microphone.
3. Pluck the string you want to tune and the tuner will highlight the note letter for you and show you if you are sharp or flat.
4. When the note turns orange, it means it is close to being in tune.
5. When the note turns green, that string is in tune.

Spice things up?

These are the most common tunings you will encounter in a bluegrass/old-time music setting:

  • Open G - gDGBD
  • Double C - gCGCD
  • Sawmill - gDGCD

Ratings and Reviews

Simple banjo tuner

I’m new to banjo tuning and found this app to be the easiest for me to use. It provides the most information in the most usable manner of all the other apps that I have tried. It is the quickest and most convenient banjo tuning app that I have been able to find.
I have not encountered any installation or operational problems of any kind during my experience with this app. I highly recommend this app to anyone who is looking for an easy way to tune their banjo.

I love it

It’s easy to use and I love the Alfa band at the bottom of the screen. It makes it easy to know how to get to the note you want when you’re way out of tune.

Doesn’t work after upgrade.

I used this app in the free form for several months without any issues and recently bought a second banjo that is tuned in a different key. So, I bought the full app and it seems to work just fine after several minor bugs such as not being responsive when a string was plucked.

It still doesn’t always respond properly for the fine tuning but eventually does if you turn the mic on and off repeatedly.
