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

I bought a couple of these tuners when they first came out about a year ago because I thought I'd be getting a great product coming from Fishman compared to what I already had (SNARK clip-ons). I was wrong, these are terrible tuners in my opinion. It's hard to recognize a note when in clip mode and even worse with the microphone mode on. I hardly ever get to tune a string perfectly, I can only get close. I wouldn't recommend this tuner to anyone unless you're getting it really cheap, otherwise it's too expensive for what it does. The only thing I liked about this tuner is the build quality, it feels very solid and its smaller than most clip-ons. For now, I'm very happy with my other brand tuners, those feel cheap but do the job amazingly.

      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 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.

            My wife and I use this tuner in our church to get our ukuleles tuned. We have had others join us and use the tuner as well. It works for guitar and ukulele and others have purchased this tuner because they first used ours. They also have been very satisfied with it.

                It's a pretty good tuner. A little flimsy and the head can only be rotated one way, but it's pretty accurate.

                I have a peterson stroboclip for myself and have used korgs in the past. The peterson is by far the best, but I bought this for a 14 year old beginner...for that...it's PERFECT!

                I kind of liked the Korg clip on tuner I had a little better though. That had it's minor issues as well though.

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

                Overall... I'm a professional guitarist with more than 40 years under my belt. This is my quick & handy tuner when I'm either around my house or drop over a friend's place to jam. My pedal board holds a Boss TU-2 & I find this "clip on" as accurate as that.
                It has just about everything you need in a very portable unit.
                OK... the first unit I recieved did not work but, but I was able to get a replacement quickly. The first one did not power up...
                It's great to keep around... small enough to toss in your case or gig bag & the LCD screen is large enough to see.

                Dead Battery

                By Robert Johnston

                from Canada

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

                Would not buy again
                This tuner works fine and I like the red/green screen -- but the battery is always dead! This because it doesn't turn off automatically if there is any noise in the room. If to tune your instrument, forget to shut it off and start playing, it stays on. The battery is an expensive watch battery too. Piece of crap and a company like Fishman should know bettter.
                Cheap
                Less than zero
