Good:

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.

      This is so functional with it's built-in light, auto shut off and the fact that it can be clipped on the head of the guitar. It can be read easily in low light and even has a green signal to show when the string note is correct. Can even use it when others are playing or tuning.

      I bought this as part of my gift for my son. However, we didnt use it at all since there are free apps which is easier to use as he said. So, cant really tell if this piece is great.

        The Snarks are hard to see outdoors in the sun. The Fender solved that issue.

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

          The problems with this tuner have to do with how fast it eats batteries but that's not all. This problem is made worse by having to deal with the little (tiny!) screw which must be removed to access the dead battery and then replaced to keep the cover on. That's a poor design feature and my loss of the 2nd screw in a short time prompted me to share my experience. I see that this tuner is now being offered in different colors but it appears that the basic problem still exists. Too bad because the tuner is quite affordable and offers a bright screen that's easy to use. I was ready to really like it and would still want more of them if the 2 problems--short battery life and poor access to the battery compartment--were solved.

            The green-color-when-in-tune feature is the bees knees!! Better than more expensive snarky-tuner-thing.

              Clip it on the head and pluck the string. It automatically detects the string. Just adjust the knobs till the needle hits center. It turns green when its good.
