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.

    I liked this enough to buy three more when they were on sale cheap. I like the way the whole screen changes color when you hit the pitch. It seems both accurate and sensitive.

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

      We have several older FT-1 Tuners that get constant use, accurate and still function. They do not eat up batteries and the battery life is very good.

      However, we ordered and received 2 more from MF (on sale) just to keep in the gig bag. These two appear defective. They are not accurate. The guitar will be out of tune even though the tuner reads that it's correctly in tune.

      We tuned the guitars with our older FT-1 Tuners and those work fine, so I think the newer ones we just received are from a defective batch and reason we gave it 4 stars. Overall, would still recommend these tuners over others we tried.

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

      Compared to my Snarks (I have mebbe 6), the display doesn't seem to give as good an indication of how "close" to the note you are. Don't care for the "Press and hold mode button for 2 seconds" to turn on/off. I'm always looking for the next best thing in clip on guitar tuners and it's certainly adequate, but I'd recommend a Snark (SN-2?, the red one) for about the same money.

                    It didn't work out of the box. I thought maybe it was just a bunk battery, so I bought a new 2320 battery for it and still no dice.
