Online Ukulele Tuner

    Use this free online ukulele tuner to tune your ukulele. This online tuner is special because you are able to change the notes to what you want, this is especially useful if you are using Alternate Ukulele Tunings. The default tuning is the standard GCEA ukulele tuning. If you have a Banjo Ukulele, then the tunings are still the same, so this will work. You will find presets for alternate tunings on the right side. For other methods on how to tune your ukulele go to our How to Tune the Ukulele page. If you want to use our old ukulele tuner go here. Below the tuner there are instructions on how to use it. If you want a preset that is not on the list, or if you have a comment or question, say so below in the comment box.

The numbering of the strings on a ukulele

How to Use this Tuner: To the right there is an image that explains the numbering of the strings on an ukulele. Click on the note for the string you want to tune and then turn the tuning pegs on your ukulele and match it up with the note that is being played. Adjust the volume on your computer until it is close to the volume of the sound your ukulele produces so one sound does not overwhelm the other. In this tuner there are two tones provided, a natural ukulele sound, and a computer generated frequency that is exactly the correct pitch, use whichever you find easier to use.

[quote="kristi_logoa":cetsjdoo]I'm a bit new to this site, and I'm not even sure if my uke is a legit one (I got it when I was really young, and just found it a couple weeks ago). I've been trying to learn how to play it, but it seems different from others I've seen. Tuning it has been a bit of a problem - it's been harmonizing with the sound on the tuner, but it's a bit off from the EXACT sound. Is that okay? When I play it it sounds the same, but in a lower octave or Anyone?[/quote:cetsjdoo] :P.... all gud, sounds like your tunned to the baritone octave, try tuning to the standard octave... good

Using an iPad, having the same problem as others above: nothing happens when I tap on the image. No sound. I was all set to buy the app, too, but now I don't know. No responses to posts, very discouraging. : (

Where is the actual tuner? I see the picture of the ukelele, but when I click on it or the string numbers,I do not hear anything? Can someone tell me how to use this site. Thank you.

Thank you for the on line tuner. I did try to use it on my iPad but it seems that Apple don't support flash so it didn't work. Works fine on my lap top which uses flash.

Having the same problem as several others: just starting on uke but can't find the actual tuner. Nothing happens when I click on the icon or strings. Rechecked my volume, refreshed my page, now what?!

Thanks for the variable tuner, it works really nicely. I am going to go and pick up the app - Hopefully it works as well as this widget on this page. Previously I used this cheap tuner from Amazon ... ele-tuner/ and I was thinking of upgrading to a more expensive tuner but if your app works well it will be more convenient.

Greatly impressed: I have used the online tuner for the guitar for some considerable time and having just recently bought a Ukulele I was pleasantly surprised to find out that there was also an online tuner for that also! Many thanks.

If you want to tune your tenor ukulele to the standard guitar DGBE format maybe you should just put Baritone Uke strings on it. The Baritone is tuned that way. :D
