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.

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

I ordered this (in blue) because it was on sale for half price, and the black one wasn't. I prefer black, but at 1/2 price, blue is good enough (and it is a pretty blue). I received it quickly, turned on and tuned in. I came back to give a review of four stars, because it's not the end all of tuners, but it's functional, nicely sized and very affordable. That's when I found the black one was now less than what I paid. Ah, c'mon.

Works well and picks up on the instruments vibrations easily. I use it on my guitars, bass, and ukulele and it works well.

If it breaks I'll buy another one

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

I do not have a lot of experience with clip-on tuners. This is the first one I have owned. It seems to do the job on my 5-string bass, with a nice bright display that is WAY easier to see in daylight than my old, worn out Korg, but you might have to wait a few seconds for the display of each note. Access to the battery compartment only requires a coin in your pocket. From the reviews I have read on other brands, I would say that this tuner matches up well with most others costing 3 times as much.

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

    Fender deals nothing but quality. I once read that Kings and Queens would sentence their musicians to the gallows if they didn't tune their instruments properly. Those doomed musicians should have called Musicians Friend (free shipping) instead of trying to tune their lute by ear. I dont know if this Fender tuner will tune a lute, however at least we dont have to deal with small pox anymore. Amirite?!?!
