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:

    this thing is a waste of money. It took me forever to tune my guitar, and even then it wasn't accurate! If your looking for a great guitar tuner get a Snark. Snarks are great and easy to use, unlike this hunk of junk

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

        So it has some really neat features like running down several steps, modes for different instruments, auto off, etcbut if you press a button to change anything, it doesn't light up so you can't see what your changing in low light. If you accidentally hit a button and change settings, you can't see to change them back. It works well and has a switch for Mic tuning vs clip.

            Bought a couple at SDD price, so probably won't send back, but it takes too long to turn on and off and it doesn't swivel well on acoustic guitars. Sticking with my Snarks.

                If you are going to call it a clip-on tuner, the clip should be wide enough to clip on all guitars. The clip on this tuner barely fit on my headstock and if it was touched it fell right off. Once attached to your guitar the screen has limited movement. I ordered 2 of them, because the price was right. The batteries that came with both units were dead. Compared to my other tuners, the quality of this tuner was lacking.

                  At this price, this is a nice basic tuner. The case is sturdily made, the display is sufficient and the mount gives plenty of options for orientation. Being a bit fussy about my tuning accuracy, I will not use this tuner as my primary tool, as the degree of accuracy just isn't there.

                        The Fishman FT-1 is a really great clip-on tuner !

                        No need for another stompbox on the floor. Or another rack unit to add to the clutter! Small compact size that goes right on your headstock.......works and tunes just as good as any floor or rack tuner I've ever owned!

                          I have several clip-on tuners, but I found that the on my D'Addario NS micro tuner clip is not very good and especially on my electric. So I bought the FT-1 Digital Clip-On Tuner and it works great. I'm not constantly pushing on the clip to make it secure.
