        Easy to see
        2 axis of adjustment
        price

        Bad:

        1. Battery life. I went through 2 batteries with only a few uses of the tuner. It appears this unit drains the battery even when off. I measured this with a precision micro-amp meter (Model MV-852). When the tuner is on, it draws about 7.4mA (milliamps). This is no problem. However, turned off it draws about 72uA (microamps). I think excessive compared to other similar tuners. To keep it short, if you do the math you get about 90 days battery life with the tuner OFF. Less if you use it. I either got a dud, or the sleep mode current is high on this unit. I now plan to take the battery out if i'm not using it once a week or more.

        2. Positioning. Even though it has 2 axis of rotation it seems it's hard to get it level with your eyes / vertical to the ground when used on a guitar, bass, or especially a violin. This is no big deal if you dont mind viewing it sideways.

        3. Modes: I wish there was a seperate on/off button and Mode button. It's quite easy to click the on/off button an extra time on power up and get into a mode you don't want.

            Comments about Fender FT-004 Clip-On Chromatic Tuner:

            Love it. I'd rather buy 2 of these than spend twice as much on another tuner - at least for basic tuning (guitar in my case). The small size means it stores in a small space - but the display is big enough to be read easily. I also like how the display changes color when a string is in tune. I'll probably order another one.

                Comments about Fender FT-004 Clip-On Chromatic Tuner:

                I guess the "you get what you pay" applies. This was the least expensive version. I could not get the G on the Ukelele to work, neither could my instructor. The unfortunate thing is with the cost of shipping, it isn't worth returning or exchanging. Buyer beware.

                Use it to check and keep the guitar in tune. Easy to store and use. Surprisingly it can be used to tune base guitar, ukulele, and violin. Also has a chromatic scale tuner. Love it.

                    Got this tuner for a back-up. The graphics are excellent. It became my primary tuner. Nice sleek design. My wife liked it too. She stole it from me for her ukelele. I had to order another one. If you are looking at buying this tuner, you better order two or three!

                      This little Tuner, with quality of the Fender Brand, is inconspicuously easy to use... clip it on and when your instrument sounds a little off, simply turn it on and "Voila" back in tune!!!

                            This thing is tiny but fit perfectly and securely on my guitar and was very easy to read. When I got a string in tune the blue background became a bright green. The screw that holds the battery (provided) cover on is ridiculously small but I had no trouble with assembly. I am very pleased with the tuner and the price.

                            I am NOT pleased with UPS. Delivery time was poor. MF usually gets my stuff to me in four days. Ths time it took a week and came by a strange route. Not MF fault but UPS Innovative needs some work.
