beautiful decoration, functional too!
25 November 2011
Summary: I bought this because it reminded me of my piano teacher from so long ago. It is beautiful, with a mahogany finish, and it works! winds nicely as needed, but I haven't needed to. I use it occasionally when accompanying my son with his violin. But mostly I just look at it. Brings back great memories.
Summary: I love this metronome. It is easy to use and looks fabulous on the piano. The sound is much better than the electric metronomes. Quality construction - I think it will last for many years to come.
Summary: Bought this as a gift got someone's 80th birthday. She was very surprised and happy with the quality of the gift and I was very grateful for the prompt delivery (she was turning 80) to Alaska. I am very satisfied with the product, ordering process and delivery of the product. Good Luck!
Summary: When I ordered this product, I knew it was an expensive purchase but was willing to pay the high price for a product of superior workmanship and materials. When I recedived the product, it was made of a thin piece of wood vaneer with plastic in the center. I was shocked, it was cheaply made and not worth anywhere near the price I paid for it. I expected a Seth Thomas type product but this was not the case at all. I was highly disappointed.
Summary: This metronome looks very appealing on our piano, could not be simpler to use, and works the old fashioned way -- no batteries. My son (2nd year piano student) had no problem putting it to use and finds it extremely helpful as he prepares for competition.
Summary: this is an awesome metronome. my mom has two of these, and she gave me the older one - which she had WAY before i was born. the mechanism is simple and requires no batteries - just a simple wind-up and it'll go on! the timing increments are well-placed, and a handy feature is the pull-out interval timer to divide your timing up into more precise measurements.
Wittner Wood Metronome, Mahogany, very high quality

Summary: This kind of metronome has not only precise timing as a digital one, but is also a classical masterpiece, very fancy. As I've been told, the Wittner metronomes are the best ones of the market, they're expensive too, but it is worth the money. The pieces of the metronome are made of wood and steel, the clockwork is very fine and produces a strong tic-tac.
Summary: This metronome is simply the best. No electronic metronome I've tried has a clap and ring that penetrates like the original design of Maelzel (that Beethoven parodied in his 8th Symphony). I highly recommend the bell with adjustable intervals --- if you get off the beat, the bell will bring you back to the downbeat. The wood finish on these models is sumptuous.
Summary: I bought this for my husband for his birthday and he loved it. Turned out it is the exact same Metronome his piano teacher has. The model I got does not have a bell, which I understand is better for beginners. It looks really pretty sitting on top of the piano too!
