As a tuner with a wide range of uses this fishman can easily be recommended highly.
As a dulcimer player it is a bit of overkill. All I need is the chromatic function. Others, particularly beginners may find the rest of the modes makes their tuning easier.Dulcimer
For my needs this has almost too many options.
It can be used as a clip on tuner, for a crowdor may be used with the built in mike.
There are 4 modes: chromatic, guitar, bass and ukulele.
The pitch can be based on a @440 or from 435 thru 445.
the range can be adjusted from normal down thru 4 flats.
the screen comes on red if out of tune with an arrow indicating tune up or down. when string is in tune the screen turns green. Green is a narrow slice and it is very easy to pass thru green to red.
Screen is 11/16 " high and 1 and 1/16" wide making it very easy to see. when out of chromatic the tuner tunes by string number
'
Three small buttons to the left of the screen are easy to use as thet are raised and separated enough to avoid hitting two at once,
Bought it on sale at 1/2 price making it a great value

The tuner works fine...the quality of the casing is questionalbe.
Features are good. You can change from chromatic to guitar, bass or ukele. You can modified the pitch.
I marked down the quality only because the battery door is a pain. It is very easy to break the pins off of the end of the door, and it is very difficult to get the door with pins intact into the slot. The door must push the battery into place... too much pressure in closing the door...the tuner is toast... or the pins snap off.
I got mine at the stupid deal price of $14...this is about right for the quality of the item...full price at $28...I recommend another tunner like Boss.

      Used it on a nylon string, a steel string and an electric guitar. Sometimes it doesn't read the notes at all and when it does they're all over the place.

          Product did not work even with new battery other than the one that came with it. Got this on Deal of the day, so did not return, just ate the cost.
          Probably been laying around in a box for who knows how long in the warehouse..that's why it was on Deal of the Day. Get them out the door, who cares if they work or not...just sell them all.

                It was broken so I can't really tell you how it worked. Now, the question is do I take the time to send it back or just stay away from the Stupid deals?

                  It works on the 1-4th string on my guitar. Has major trouble on the 5th and 6th. Sometimes it can't even hear the 6th string. It's a piece of junk. I love my Snark.

                  Was advertised as having the battery included. Tried to use it and it didn't work. Upon opening, found there was no battery. Now I can't even evaluate it until I find a battery for it.

                        It is a nice little tuner with an easy to read display. It has separate colors to indicate if you are sharp or flat which makes this a gem in dim lit places. Nice display and easy to use.
