Great item, but get an a/c adapter for it!

Mitch, amazon.com
18 January 2012
  • Summary: This is a great little item, and much better than a regular metronome. But it goes through 9 volt batteries rather quickly, so I'd recommend getting an a/c adapter for it right off the bat...

High Tech

  • Summary: Too confusing to me to use. But my daughter wanted this exact model as she pursues her college degree in music. As for me... I have a few much cheaper tools to use... my ears to tune.. and my heart for the beat.

Amazing Metronome

Oscar, amazon.com
28 December 2011
  • Summary: I really like this metronome. I've tried some Korg's and the Tama Rhythm Watch and this one is the one I like the most. Very customizable, I use it for my everyday drumming practice. There are a lot of features I don't know how to use yet, like the coach feature, but I'm starting to play with it in order to get the best of it.

Keeps the beat with lots of options.

David A. Barckhoff, amazon.com
6 November 2011
  • Summary: This is a metronome with many options for keeping a beat. It has programed patterns, and can also be set for beats and tempo. Although the patterns are many, they are mostly 4/4 time, and you can not program the drum sounds. There are different voices for the regular metronome and it sounds good and the display gives an excellent visual representation. The volume can be adjusted on note intervals, and that enables you to get just the right sounding beat.

A nice tool for a drummer and other musicians

  • Summary: The unit works well. A very valuable tool especially for its counting features. Much better than a simple metronome with simple clicks and flashing LEDs.

Great Metronome

sfb "sfbsfb", amazon.com
21 April 2011
  • Summary: Bought this for my piano playing daughter after her (12 years old?) mechanical device started to have problems. Read a bunch of reviews and I knew it was overkill (way more features than she requires), but this device has tremendous ability to customize. She loves it. Other vendors and markets had the same metronome for a similar price, but none of the others would ship to Canada. Great price, easy transaction, excellent communication.

Boss DB90

Marymacviolin, amazon.com
22 March 2011
  • Summary: Definitely a splurge item. Using it for myself, but also a great teaching tool with my students. The variety of beats and voices along with super control of volume is excellent. I'll never use all the drum capabilities, but it captures my student's attention and they have some fun using it during our lessons.

Playing Holst? No problem with this baby!

James A. Glass ""I played the wrong, wron..., amazon.com
14 March 2011
  • Summary: I am working on a deceptively hard soprano sax solo in Holst's "Venus" from the planets series. As an amateur musician the palm key F# and interval voicing was challenging enough. But this song features a solo that is on the beat while the rest of the band is on the off beats in a metronomic way. The first time I played the solo I found myself moving to the off-beats which was wrong.

great product

Nancy DIppolito "Nancy", amazon.com
3 March 2011
  • Summary: I bought this as a gift for my husband to use when playing his trumpet -- yes, he asked for a Dr. Beat. All I can say is he loves it. He says he can hear the beat while playing, which says a lot because the trumpet is loud. He also likes the feature that allows him to check his tuning and to match sounds.

Look at the You Tube video for how to use functions

C. Williams, amazon.com
4 February 2011
  • Summary: There is a good YouTube video that is less than 5 min. that explains how to use the metronome. It's a comprehensive video.
