      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

      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.

            This is a workable easy to read tool. The only problem is a poorely designed / made battery compartment door which fitted poorly and broke during battery installation. A rubber band to hold it all together is working fine (though not esthetically pleasing).

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

              Great little clip-on tuner which also has a mic and works audibly. Fantastic display. I particularly like the way the display background also turns from Red to Green when you get to the nominal tune position. I have used an Intelli IMP-500 (vibration only) for years and find it similar. The pluses for the Fishman is that it is somewhat smaller, better display, has multiple tuning modes, and has the added mic tuning capability. One feature I would like to see on these type tuners is the ability to tilt or pivot the display left and right when clipped on the headstock so that you are looking squarely at it. Not a really biggy, but would be a nice design improvement.

                  Few things I like about this clip on is that the screen color changes from red to green so it's easier to see when you are in or out of tune. And the switch to select from clip to mic is a nice feature depending on what you are tuning and in what environment.

                  This tuner is fairly accurate after checking it against others I own
                  Buttons are small and the directions are terrible but aside from that it works well.
                  Others had mentioned it doesn't have an auto shut off but mine shuts itself off after 5 minutes but on the clip position only. The clip position works fine for an electric or acoustic guitar.

                            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.
