      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

      This little tuner is AWESOME! I had no idea I was going to buy this thing. It was on sale on a deal-of-the-day, and I decided to give it a try. First, it is much smaller than I expected - and will easily fit in the smallest of case or gig bag compartments. I like this because it is not some bulky piece of equipment to be toting around on your instrument. Frequency range is adjustable, and it works as a clip-on or can also be switched to use its on-board mike - increasing the range of instruments that can be tuned. The screen is amber for out of tune with direction arrows, and it changes to green when you hit the right spot. I'm sure it can be used even in the darkest of rooms, and is still easily visible in bright daylight. This will certainly take the place of my more expensive portable tuner. I have used this tuner with both my guitars and banjos, and expect to use it with my wind instruments too. After using this thing a few days, I'm going to recommend it even at regular price!

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

            I already had two tuners, both of the non-clip variety. Awkward to use; I would balance it on my knee while tuning. One is the size of a small brick and actually has an analog needle to show the tuning. Ancient. Always wanted a clip-on for the convenience but the prices kept me away. Then I saw this in Musician's Friend catalog. At the outstanding price listed I couldn't pass it up and am glad I got it. After just a few uses it's second nature now and a breeze to use. Great bang for your buck, especially with the free shipping. Going to give my old tuners to some students just starting out on guitar.

            It did not seem to work correctly out of the box, but after a bunch of starts and restarts, seems to work fine now. If you are used to a high-end tuner, this will take some adjustment in thinking.
            For the present Musician's Friend price, it is a good bargain.

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

            I bought a couple of these as backups and for my guitar students to use. They do the trick just fine, and I like the nice bright screens. But the buttons are easily knocked, which makes you need to check the settings often (is it on 441, or? - chrom, guitar, bass, etc.). Not a hardship for me, but frustrating when the kids tune up to different settings!! And keep batteries on hand - the ones that shipped ran out in minutes....

            But still a good buy for the price.

                I bought 2 on a Stupid Deal of the Day. Opened one and a month later went to use and did not work. Screen went all haywire and then went dead...tried a new battery...DEAD!!! Opened the other one and it works now, hope it will continue to work.

                Good news is that Musician's Friend has EXCELLENT Customer Service and Matt is sending me another out right away.

                Thanks!!!! Musician's Friend!!!!

                    This item was non-functional right out of the box. Every aspect of this tuner failed to operate at all. You really can't do any worse than that!
                    I would give it no stars but the rating system won't let me.
