Tuning with Electronic Cello Tuners

   There are many different types of electronic cello tuners out there. Some are cheap while some are pretty expensive. There are basically two different types of tuners. There are the tuners that produce a sound, and then you tune your cello to match that sound; and with the other type you pluck a string, and then it shows on a little screen what pitch your at, and then you tune it until it matches the correct note.

Here are some pictures of tuners:

This tuner is the type of cello tuner that plays a tone for each string, and the you tune the corresponding string to the tone.

Tuning your cello

First of all you need to know what each string's note is. Here is a picture that shows you.

So the thickest string(4th String) has that note of C. When you tune with a cello tuner make sure the tune that is being played is a C. If you are using the other type of tuner then match the 4th String till it hovers over the 'C'.

Do this with each of the strings and their corresponding notes. Remember that standard tuning is CGDA.

We have an online tuner for you so you don't have to go out and buy one.Lucky dogs you! Here is a link to our Online Cello Tuner. This is the type of tuner that plays a sound and then you match your cello strings to the corresponding tune.

Congratulations on tuning your cello!
