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.

              I use this tuner now as my main tuner personally, and I bought 4 so when I do group guitar lessons/rehearsals, several guitars can be used at once. I use it for a banjo as well. I'm new to banjos so not sure if this is a perfect device for banjo but it worked.

                      Great little tuner that can't be beat for the price. Purchased one on deal of the day last year that had some issue with the battery connection, but it was an easy fix. Since then I've purchased two more and all work great. I especially like how you can switch the mic on and off and the changing red/green display is helpful in low light conditions

                            Technically is very easy to use and I do like it but because the buttons are small and the print is very tiny it can be a bit difficult to see in the dark which is when you are usually re-tuning .It would be easier if there was one bigger on/off button on one side and the rest of the buttons that are rarely used on the other side.

                              Unit kept on switching modes and not holding the screen on long enough. The best thing about this tuner is the battery it comes with.
