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.

The vibration mode does not pick up sound well. It is not consistent or quick enough while tuning each string with the green light.

          This tuner is innacurate. Way off! I checked it against a tuning fork ( A 440 ) and two other clip on tuners all of which agree with each other.

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

            This is the second clip-on type tuner I've purchased. I wasn't happy with the first, so I was skeptical about this unit. But, I'm being won over. Operation is a bit tricky, so I'd suggest a quick glance at the instruction sheet. Clip-ons don't work the same on every guitar, so my experience may not be the same as another owner. I play acoustic guitars. I usually clip the tuner on the headstock. The unit is small so it's not a distraction, although unless I'm having tuning problems, I usually take it off during a performance. I like the color indicators and background change from red to green when accuracy is achieved. I downgraded it a bit for the operational characteristics. Small buttons that require multiple pushes or "press & hold" annoy me. Still, it seems to do a fine job of tuning, the indicator is reasonably stable (doesn't jump around) and it's pretty easy to read while on the guitar.

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

            Using either setting to tume a guitar was not easy. as I got closer to the note, it would suddenly flip to sharp or flat, skipping over the true note - back and forth, back and forth. I'm a beginner, but this doesn't seen very good.

                Tuner seems cheaply made and requires"jiggling" button to get it to turn on and off.
