We seem to have an unending supply of tuners in our house, from the Boss TU-3 down to a Korg unit that is over 25 years old and still going strong. We didn't need another.... Until I saw the Fishman on sale at GC. I picked one up on a whim, and it's excellent. Very stable and accurate, and even works on my electric bass (some of the other headstock tuners have issues with the low E string on a bass). Read the instructions on this unit. It can be set to downtune in half-step increments; if you don't look at the display closely, you may not notice the little icons at the bottom of the screen. As for size - this is tiny. We leave it on the headstock of my wifes guitar, and we hardly notice it - but it's there whenever we need it. Best feature for me is the red/green backlighting; it only turns green when you're perfectly in tune, which is great for a quick tune up between songs. Downsides: None, really. It doesn't have a 1/4" connection, but it doesn't need one. It might not be as accurate as a rack-mounted tuner, but it's great for our use, and it gives the same readings as our TU-3. Highly recommended.

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

      While I have a pretty good ear for music, using this tuner ensures that I have the best tone for my guitar strings. I like the unique color change from being out of tune to being in tune. The display is nice and large and it is really cool to have the option to display string number instead of note name. I also found the package it came in to be extremely easy to open. I have 2 other guitar string tuners and I like this one the best.

        The one made by DAddario is smaller and better, but this does the job. It can only be left on some acoustics where fit and damage to finish will not be a concern. Overall it is a great deal though.

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

          Bought 3 FT-1s given the low price. Told my tuning challenged boy to just think of the FT-1 as a video game and the tuning pegs as controller. He loves it, and now tunes guitars on his own. I found the FT-1 easy to use and as good or better than other brand tuners. The FT-1 turns itself off after awhile if inactive. Me thinks the negative reviews perhaps over stated.

                    I have tried many clip on tuners and have been very disappointed in them all until Guitar Center suggested the FT-1, and it works very well. I can count on it to keep a proper tune for my guitar. I compared it to my plug in tuner and it was right on the money.

                    My goal has always been to have a tuner in every case for every instrument. I rolled the dice and purchased a half dozen. At this price, why not? I've only had them a week so I can't speak for reliability or longevity. Clip on tuners are not built to last any more it seems. I still have 2 intellitouch tuners more then 12 years old that still work fine. Last few years the tuners I purchase are lucky to last a month or two before they spaz out and die... so sad. If these go bad quick I will let you know. Good hunting..!
