Online Banjo Tuner

Use this free online banjo tuner to tune up your banjo. This is for a standard 5-string Banjo, in GDGBD tuning. For other methods on how to tune your banjo go to our Banjo Tuning Methods page. If you have a banjo that has six strings it might be a banjo guitar and that is tuned like the guitar. For those of you who have a 4-string banjo, it is tuned the same as the viola or cello in CGDA

Note: For those of you who are beginners and don't understand the tuning of a banjo. The banjo tuning is unique because the last string is actually higher in pitch then the rest of the strings. So for those of you who are wondering whats up with this tuner - it's normal. If you have any questions or problems tuning your banjo post them below and we will try and help you.

the online banjo tuner is located on this page: If you have the latest version of Flash installed it will work. If you are trying to access the tuner on Apple products, you will have a hard time getting it to work as Apple chooses not to support Flash objects. mcjoy42, what operating system and web browser are you using? Do you have the latest Flash plugin installed?

Tuning for open E minor: 5th string -- e/g (tune down to E or leave at G; either works) 4th string -- E (tuned up 2 frets) 3rd string -- G (leave it alone) 2nd string -- B (leave it alone) 1st string -- E (tuned up 2 frets)

Thank you for your banjo tuner! it helped me a lot to get started, works great! My first logon did not load the tuner, so if you don't see the banjo with the big note keys for each string at the bottom, re-logon. Thank you!

Have spent the past 20 minutes trying to locate the banjo used to be simple, now that I registered it is impossible to even find anything , I click on the banjo, it takes me to an add or another directive and then back to the start, too bad, this used to be a good tuning site, I'll find another way.......

To navigate from the forum to the tuner being discussed, click on the icons at the top left corner of this page, above the words "Board index", then select your instrument. Beware the piano/keyboard tuner reference however, it is an octave off.
