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:

    Love the Fishman FT-1! It helps immensely if you know the proper way to tune a guitar, then the FT makes it a breeze. When I'm setting up in a place with loud background music, I learned to clip it on close to the post of the string I'm tuning, then it works so much faster and better - but ALL clip-ons have the same issue. I really like the Red/Green screen = no doubt when you are in tune. I used it to tune an ancient upright piano, using the chromatic setting. I have, so far, purchased 11 of these... I get talked out of them pretty easy :-) I'd like to try the FT-4, but it may be way too much robot stuff in such a little box.

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

        My favorite tuner! It's tiny, so it fits everywhere. I usually play solo, so I don't worry if the guitar is "properly tuned." But sometimes I get a chance to play with a singer so it's important to get it right = the FT-1 works quickly and accurately, so I'm ready in a few seconds and people aren't standing around waiting for the guitar guy to get in tune. The screen is visible in any light, and I love the bright red/green indicator! I've never had a problem with sensitivity or background. Using the clip on different headstocks can be interesting, but that's a much bigger issue with other tuners - I have one guitar with a 5x2 tuner setup and I learned to clip the FT-1 on the headstock, on the bass side, as close to the nut as possible. It worked so well, I clip the FT-1 they same way on all my guitars. Overall, I'm very pleased and the FT-1 gets my biggest OK!
