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:

    Bought two of these last year and they are mainly shelf ornaments. I much prefer the Snark for ease of use. The Fishmsn is to difficult to use unless you have precision tuned tuners. Slightest adjustment goes past tuning.

                              I love Fishman acoustic amps. I have 3 of them. I am surprised that this tuner is so finicky. I have 3 or 4 other clip on tuners. This is the least functional. It has trouble detecting the string tones on acoustic ukuleles. And, the note it indicates fluctuates wildly. Not worthy of the Fishman name, if you ask me.

                                I like all that this does, but the head joint only turns in a circular motion and I CANNOT get the face in view once it's clipped to the headstock! I don't get off dissing products. I have a Snark but over compressed it in a soft case and broke the swivel joint. I thought the Fishman would have the same circular ball joint, but mine only goes around; no ball joint. It was cheap and the other features all work, but I wish one of you people would've mentioned it! IMHO, get a Snark (on sale!)

                                  Got this the other day and attempted to tune an intune guitar. Strummed the guitar and wondered what just happened here. Fiddled with the mhz but it just wouldn't tune correctly. My Snark retuned it right. Don't waste your money. It would cost more to send it back than just throw it. Get a Snark.
