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:

      By the time I tuned a third guitar, the display started acting goofy. I slid the back open to see what battery it took. When I closed it back up it wouldn't work at all. I'm going to try a new battery. If that doesn't work, it's going in the trash.

            Yes it's cheap,yes you get what you pay for.It's very slow to recognize the low "E" on the guitar.Too slow.I'm not talking about a bass mind you,it's an acoustic guitar for Gods sake.It does work finally,but I find myself re-tuning the guitar by ear so it sounds right-this shouldn't be necessary!It also is not very adjustable.annoying.No I would not buy this product again.

                This tuner is smaller than I thought it would be...which is ok. For convenience, it is better than the app on my phone as it picks up vibrations and doesn't have to be in a semi-quiet environment to function properly

                I bought this because it sounded like a quality product. I was wrong I have 2 other Snark tuners that do a much better job. Do yourself a favor and spend two green backs more to get a Snark Tuner. You will be MUCH happier. The people that rate this tuner so high have obviously never used a Snark.

                  Tunes well enough but the battery cover tabs broke the first time I used it. It's being held together by black duct tape right now.

                    I bought this as an alternative to my snark tuners. It felt so much cheaper and fragile than my snark tuners. I also bought a D'Addario/Planetwaves NS Micro that is about the same price as FT-1. The NS is much smaller and much faster than the FT-1. My biggest complaint about the FT-1 is that it is SLOW! There are much better alternatives out there. However, it does work.

                      I bought a pair of these to use in my school. My middle schoolers can tune up all the guitars and basses quickly, and so far no damage to the unit or themselves. The unit doesn't always catch the low "E" on the guitar bass, so it sometimes has to be moved, but otherwise it's pretty accurate and dependable.
