      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.

        Although this tuner is very small which makes it difficult to use the tiny buttons. It does work well and serves the purpose at a low price.

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

        Small and functional. I like how it can use the integrated vibration clip or internal microphone.

        The user interface is no frills. There is not a color display, it uses a monochrome display with changes in backlight color. The chromatic notes are displayed on a "numeric" display which can only approximate note letters. Most of the tuning bar indicators look the same, reducing the value of this feature. The display is functional, but not state of the art.

        The FT-1 had trouble tracking on the fly pitch changes, requiring a fresh pluck after every string adjustment. Using an adjust then pluck to indicate pitch technique, it easily tuned my 12 string guitar.

        Overall, the FT-1 is about average. It is not one of Fishman's usual industry leading products.

          have been buying tuners since the late 70's. This one is simple and priced right. I had one for a few years and lost it, just bought two more from MF, one for my accoustic and one for my electric (unless I'm using my pedal board).

                    The sale price really drew me to this tuner. The big surprise is that it actually works for the sale price paid. I have another model from another manufacturer that cost 3.5 times as much-this Fishman works just as good.
