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.

      For that price it's great. I'm not a fan of the way the screen displays the tuning, but it's fine for just having something around when all my others are packed away with my gig stuff.

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

        It's a marginal tuner with a few problems. First of all, it's black & white before you get near the correct pitch. That's hard to see so you better have good light hitting it or you won't be able to see it. Once you're near your note, it turns either red or green to tell you you're off or on the note. I found that distracting and annoying. It's like this light show going on. Secondly, the indicator bar is about 1/3 of the display and also hard to see. It also needs to have more bars to tell you you're near your note. It only has a few. Other tuners have more bars for detail. I got this on Stupid Deal and it's not worth sending back. I might save it for someone's Xmas stocking and call it a day.

                          What a piece of garbage..Right out of the box the flat mode won't work in chromatic setting which is all I use. Takes forever to settle into the string you are tuning and it's too bad that this doesn't work because I bought it for the convenience that, unlike Snark, all the buttons are in front.
