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.

    Comments about Fishman FT-1 Digital Clip-On Tuner:

    Overall this is a pretty decent tuner. Easy to use and funcitions well.
    My main complaint is that it doesn't really work for anything lower than an Eb? So tuning the top string on my 6s and definitely on my 7 strings doesn't work. So aside from not working for lower notes, it's good!

      Comments about Fishman FT-1 Digital Clip-On Tuner:

      First clip on tuner I bought many years ago. Original still works great, but clip got broken (dropped guitar). Tried just to replace clip, but not an option. Tried other tuners most were not as responsive. I do have a snark. It works but is too big. I really like this little FT-1's. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

        I got this tuner as a backup, and it has been great. At first I wasn't sure if it would be easy to read, but as soon as I turned it on I saw that it had a bright, easy-to-read display.

              Good little tuner. Putting the battery was a little troublesome because there was no + or - indicator on the unit. And the directions state putting the battery backwards will damage the tuner.

                Backlit in some sorta green with black text, worthless in bright sunlight. Colors on screen remind me of playing space invaders when it 1st came out.

                Comments about Fishman FT-1 Digital Clip-On Tuner:

                I bought two of these on BF last year NB and am very disappointed. The display is clear and plenty big enough but it lacks sensitivity. Sometimes it will not pick up the vibrations no matter where place it on the headstock. Both tuners that I bought have the same problem. I may have gotten two from a bad batch but I still regret buying them.

                I bought three if the Vox tuners on the Stupid Deal of the Day and am delighted with those! I also have one of the Snark tuners that I am happy with.
