Great metronome

Comments:

I completely disagree with others who say this met is a waste of money. I bought one of these back in 2005 and it still works perfectly to this day. If it stops working and resets itself to 120, that just means it needs a new battery, and if it broke because you dropped it, that's your fault. It has a wider range of tempi than some other cheap metronomes and all the variations of rhythms and time signatures that you could ever need. It was great when I used to play a lot of marimba. I would clip in onto my back pocket and plug my Vic Firth isolation headphones into it and go to town. Because of it's small size I just keep it in my mallet bag. For the price, it doesn't get any better than this.

Don't waste your time!!!

Comments:

I'm the cheapest percussion you will ever meet. Obviously, I bought this because it was the cheapest option available. After a few uses, it just stopped working. Simple as that. Though I'm cheap, ended up wasting money on this product. Don't make my mistake!!! Buy at least the next model upwards!!

Why??

Comments:

i have had this metronome for a little over a year now. I recently replaced the battery because the original died. Before i replaced the battery it worked great, i was so glad i got this metronome. Now i have dropped it a couple timems, but either way it shouldn't be doing what it does. At random times, sometimes with the gentlest touch, and sometimes when im not even touching it, it will reset to original settings. This is really annoying. Maybe this is because i got it from A****n.com, but it shouldn't be doing this. Overall great metronome when it works.

Given Up

Comments:

It's hard to give this a rating. The features all are very nice, but I bought it twice and it broke after regular use both times. For the price, I don't want to keep buying this over and over again. Need something more long-lasting.

Little=Big

Comments:

This little thing might be small and portable but it packs a big wallop. Perfect for the musician on the go or not willing to dish out a bigger Dr. Beat. Works really well when tucked into one's pocket with I-Pod headphones connected.
