If you are considering purchasing a violin, viola
or cello tuner, you may also want to consider a chromatic tuner. A
chromatic tuner will tune to any note including sharps and flats. Its tuning
range on most models is almost as wide as all the notes on the piano. Therefore,
a single chromatic tuner will tune virtually any instrument. Since a chromatic tuner can recognize every note, it has also been used
for practicing intonation. This is
done is by playing a note and see it is in-tune by checking against the tuner.
