sure which model you need? There are many models to pick
from and it depends what you are using the metronome for. If you need
a metronome for music purposes, any model will work well, but
there are some with more features than others. Below are a few tips to
help you choose a model.
Cherub metronomes and tuners have the most advanced
features for the least amount of money... The display on the Cherub
Wsm001 metronome is larger than most other metronomes. The Wmt220 is a
talking metronome that will do a pre count down .. such as 4 3 2 1 as
many times as you program the metronome. The visual features are also
excellent, using many led lights to tell you where you are in the
beat. The memory functions an available rhythms on this metronome sets
this metronome apart from all other models. This metronome has a
classic look with digital features.
The Dr Beat metronomes are the most
advanced models, having features not found in other metronome models..
These models are excellent teaching tools for learning simple or
complex rhythms. All Dr Beat models are digital metronomes. The DB
90 is a talking metronome.. it will count out loud with a
voice. The DB90 will also count very complex rhythms, with all parts
of the beat being controllable. The DB60 has
most of the same features as the DB 88, with out the voice and a few
other features. All Dr. Beat metronomes come with a manual with full
Quartz and keywound models are a little easier to
use than digital models, as you can dial the tempo quickly with a
quartz model - a digital model requires pressing a button
till you get to the tempo. - Look at Matrix,
Seiko and the Wittner
Mt70 for great quartz
models at a low price.
Digital Metronomes have many features and will
increment the the tempo by one beat at a time. With a digital
metronome you can get the tempos 60,61,63,64... etc. Quartz and
keywound models use musical tempos to determine the increments.
Need a loud metronome... the loudest are the
Mr600, and Seiko Sq70-
our loudest. Need a very loud metronome -- for chorus, band,
orchestra, large groups... look at the MetroAmp
The keywound metronomes with a swinging pendulum
let you see the motion of the beat. The bell models will also accent
the first beat with a bell sound. The keywound models give the most
natural sound of all the metronomes and are very pleasing to the ear.
The Taktell Mini is a great metronome for portability, but the sound
is louder on the Taktell Piccolo or Standard Models. Using the
keywound models is simple and with winding the key about 8 -12 times
the sound should last from 20 to 30 minutes. The plastic standard
models are identical to the standard wood model... except for the case
which is wood. The wood is made from a composite wood and then
finished with walnut, mahogany, or black finishes.
For exercise, physical therapy, dog training, or golf swing...
our most popular model is the Seiko DM50
